‘I always loved you and I always will’ – iZombie, 2019

Happy Monday, everyone! How are we all! As promised – I haven’t gone back into the depths! I am here!
This weeks review is about the end of an era (as with a lot of other shows this year). That’s right, this weeks review is about iZombie. Spoiler alert – this show was ended way too soon. I can’t promise this review will be spoiler free, seeing as I’m talking about the end of an era.

Liv and Major in the season finale – iZombie, The CW, 2019

As you probably already know, I do really like iZombie. My previous review was “This is right up my street.” Trust me when I say, I bloody love this show. It’s acting is amazing and story lines are compelling.

The cast saying goodbye to Major and Ravi’s kitchen! – iZombie, The CW, 2019

But let’s just jump into how I felt about the last season. Whilst I loved most of the season, the end happened way too quickly.
All the stories were just tied up way too quickly. The last two episodes were so quick and I actually think everything was tied up too nicely? Everyone lived happily ever after… after everything that had gone on? Really? It’s just not how I expected this season to end. I was kind of disappointing. Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy everyone is happy, but everything was wrapped up too nicely in this small little parcel, with more telling me what’s happened than showing me how everything had changed. I liked the idea that everyone had meetings in VR, but show me a bit more of how things had changed in 10 years!

I think everyone needs to watch iZombie. It’s political, it’s funny. I love it. It’s a shame about the end but I understand why it ended that way.

‘Get ready to cheersplode baby!’ Borderlands 3, 2019

Happy Monday everyone! I’ve just got back from a holiday, so I am writing this a week in advance. Look at me, being ahead. But just in case they release more on this, I will be behind in adding it to the end. For now this will be a quick one. Because hype, hype, hype!

The splash art for the pre-order – Borderlands 3, 2K Games, 2019

Like everyone ever, I am hyped for Borderlands 3. The first two games and the pre-sequel are three of my favourite games. I love getting together with my looter-bros and going and killing some flaming psychos for their fancy guns.
Did you ever use the screaming guns in Borderlands 2? I think it was called the bane? It literally screams every time you shoot it, as if a psycho was living inside of it. For no reason what-so-ever, it’s not a good gun at all, it is my favourite gun. It’s fun and stupid. That’s why I love it.
Not only are the games fun but their stories are so well thought out. The Pre-sequel actually made me like Handsome Jack. I felt sorry for him. Really sorry for him.

Borderlands 3, 2K Games, 2019

I do have some reservations about the classes. I like to play Siren – nothing will live up to Maya in my opinion – but the new siren is a melee character, seemingly. That’s not usually my kind of thing. Trying to figure out who plays who in my looter-group could be difficult.
Oh and it’s Epic Store exclusive for 6 months – why?! That bugs me so much – exclusives are bad!
But that’s not too many negatives – 2 out of how ever many I could have. I am excited. Really excited.

Catch the trailer here!

‘That Harley is a fop and a prat and smells like a ninety-six year-old French whore’s vajuju.’ – The Favourite, 2019

Hello everyone – long time not see! I have been having WordPress issues (for some reason it’s not loading on my google chrome) so I’m having to use incognito mode? Yeah, I don’t know either.

Queen Anne VS Queen Anne – The Favourite, Film4 and others, 2019

Last weekend, I went to see The Favourite with my Mum and Dad, before it left the movie theatre. It’s a good Friday evening activity after a long week at work.
Here’s a quick premise: It’s 1708 and Britain is at war, with France (duh.) Queen Anne is in bad health, and seems to hate governing – she prefers to do childish activities like playing cards or playing with her rabbits. Her adviser, Sarah Churchill, is basically in charge, Anne does everything she says. Sarah basically controls everything, and hates to be challenged. Queue Abigail – her cousin. Fallen from grace, Abigail gets in with the Queen and attempts to change her views on Sarah; she wants to be as in control as her cousin is. Does she succeed? (I’m pretty sure we all know the answer by now).

Nicholas Hoult is amazing in this film! – The Favourite, Film4 and others, 2019

So this was a weird movie. I wanted to see it because I was working at Hatfield House when it was filmed, so I saw a lot of the filming being done. It was really interesting seeing a film from the inside, and sitting in a theatre knowing where each scene was filmed.
It looks immaculate, and It was so interesting to see each scene take place. I liked the bit where they were running back and forth in the hallway – pushing the wheelchair the full length at full speed. That looked really fun.
I loved the power dynamics of this film. Especially the end where Anne gets all her power back, forcing Abigail into a servant’s position again. After there was this weird bit with rabbits, which I still don’t know the symbolism of it a week later. Is it about the cyclical nature of children? I have no idea. I’m not sure anyone knows really.

All in all, I really liked this film. It was weird and quirky, like All is True, which I had seen a little previously to this. I like these weird historical films. I dig them. Everyone should.

Check out the trailer down below!

It’s good to be back! What should I see next? Or read next? What would you like me to review?
