Can you believe GLOW's run has come to an end? 2020 will show the fun 1980s show the door, and it's really a shame since it's such an enjoyable show with an incredible cast. Did you know that GLOW was a real thing? I grew up in the 80s but had never heard of it until Netflix made the show.
Okay 80s fans, is anyone else finding themselves suffering from Stranger Things withdrawal? Anyone else have the show on as background noise while you're doing chores or working from home, or listening to the soundtrack and getting misty-eyed over Hopper's last scene while listening to "Heroes"... okay, just me? Got it.
Star Wars Episode IX: Rise of the Skywalker spoiler warning.
While anti-heroes are all the rage, I must admit that I struggle with them. I love a darkish hero, but when it comes to a redeemed villain, I just don't know what to do with them. When Regina wanted to go good on Once Upon a Time, I was thrilled but also thought she didn't deserve to just start being happy after murdering so many people. I think the prison system we have is deeply flawed, so what do you do with that?
By now you've probably seen the trailer for Wonder Woman 1984 and I wanted to ensure we had space to discuss it. How excited are you? All of the nods to the 80s are there, including Kristen Wiig's enormous glasses and I can't wait to see it! June 5 doesn't seem all that far away, does it?
Xennials are going gaga over the latest Xfinity ad, but I'm not so sure I like the whole modern take on E.T. For starters, it's definitely banking on our nostalgia, which isn't bad in and of itself: I love 80s culture used in modern media. What I don't love is how they reused every element from the original to make this ad without any real movement or meaning included in it.
No, the second season of Castle Rock doesn't take place in the 80s like Stranger Things. In fact, it's pretty modern, complete with cell phones prominently featured in several scenes. But the 80s vibe we got from the small town from Stephen King's imagination is definitely there, but with a twist: Somali immigrants have found a haven in the cursed town.
Are you binging 80s horror movies this month? If so, you might be missing out on some of the best films of this decade. Check this list of 50 of the best 80s horror movies to see if you've seen them all and which ones you should add before the month is over.
Most of the best Halloween songs come from the 80s. There are a lot of great modern ones, too, especially Marilyn Manson's rendition of "This is Halloween," which is my favorite Halloween song, ever, but couldn't you argue that any of his songs could be played for Halloween? The same goes for much of the American Horror Story soundtrack, by the way--if you're looking for a LONG list of songs to fit your fall mood, that's a good one!
Netflix has released a teeny, tiny teaser of Stranger Things season 4, and while it really doesn't show us much, it does confirm one thing: that we will have a fourth season! It also confirms something that the Duffer Brothers have been promising for years, that the show will venture out of Hawkins territory. We expected that to occur last season, and it sort of did with the food court, but not nearly as far as season four will likely go between wherever Eleven and Will move, not to mention Russia.
One of the easiest ways to stir up controversy today is to discuss whether or not you support a reboot of any movie or TV show in history. It's really easy to make people big mad this way, which really makes no sense since a lot of what they like is just a reboot or retelling of something else and they don't even know it.
