Stranger Things review

91GMscK0ycL. SL1500 691x1024 Stranger Things

A love letter to 80’s horror and suspense, but with modern sensibilities. There’s some truly horrifying things going on in this story, but it’s all damned believable. What a great series, it’s only available on Netflix right now, so if you have an account already, awesome, if not, it might even be worth the $15 a month for just this one series (and many others!)

    1. Oh boy. Gonna get shit for this…Tried watching it, 4 episodes, and while I understand why people like it intellectually, it just feels “dated”, like you said in the title, if youre a fan of 80’s horror and suspense. I love horror and suspense, but not when it feels like ET, The Goonies, and Ghostbusters. Ive seen those movies, and theyre fine, but I cant connect to this series like people who are its target audience. When those movies came out, I was dropping acid and having sex. Those were not my “coming of age years”. This show has it’s interesting moments, but there is TOO MANY other things to watch for me to spend my time on it. So, go ahead. Let the insults begin.

      • Aquaman, I’m giving you the worst insult I can give; You are entitled to your opinion, sir.
        Personally quite enjoyed the series overall and would recommend it, though I will agree with Aquaman and say it was a little *too* Spielberg in places. Also I had my problems with the final episode, but I’ll withhold those for fear of spoilers.

      • I was wondering how this type of film would affect people that weren’t coming of age in the specific time period they’re referencing. Thanks for your input!
