Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga – Netflix Film Review

Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga

I have been excited for the release of Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga ever since it was announced. I just thought it was such a fantastic idea, one ripe with comedic potential, given the ridiculous and utterly camp nature of the contest itself.

Feel the Beat: Netflix Film Review

Feel the Beat

I love a dance movie. Always have, always will. I’ve seen Step Up 2: The Streets so many times. I also love a competition movie such as Pitch Perfect and Bring It On, which I both adore. Feel the Beat combines the two so it’s safe to say I enjoyed it very much.

The film is really not good.

In most teen comedies, it’s a common trope that the ex-girlfriend hates the new girlfriend. But what if that wasn’t the case? This scenario is explored in the subversive and entertaining Banana Split.

Hooking Up

If you thought pairing a sex addict and a man suffering from cancer together for a romantic comedy was a weird concept, you would be right, and that’s exactly what Hooking Up does.
