Charmed was not a show I fell for right away, but over time it became one of my absolute favorites. With the news of the reboot coming soon, I decided to rewatch this wonderful show from the beginning and post reviews of each episode. These won’t be full blown reviews, but more like my random thoughts throughout the episode, with a summery at the end. I’ll also be rating each episode using a five star rating system.

Movie Review – Star Wars, Episode VIII: The Last Jedi

So, as we all know life can sometimes get in the way of us doing things we want to do, like rewatch and write up a review for a Star Wars movie. My life has finally settled down enough that I can finally do just that. So, without further ado, the time has come to review one of the most controversial and polarizing movies from the end of 2017. Here is my review of episode eight, The Last Jedi.

Now, after following the success of The Force Awakens, many people had spent the two years between Episode VII and Episode VIII theorizing about what would happen next. Which, in my opinion, put a lot of pressure on The Last Jedi‘s director Rian Johnson. As I said above this movie received some very strong hate directed it’s way, but also a lot of love. The question now is, where do I fall on this scale of love and hate after seeing The Last Jedi for a second time?

[WARNING: Some serious spoilers are beneath this cut. So if you haven’t seen this movie yet, please don’t read on.]

CW Released a Trailer for the Charmed Reboot

81vhq+y3I1L._RI_SX200_

I wasn’t going to post anything about the the trailer for the Charmed reboot that was posted today, but I decided that I needed to write out my thoughts about this reboot. Honestly, after watching the trailer, I’m just not sure how I feel about it.

I really wasn’t happy when it was first announced that it was getting rebooted in the first place because I just didn’t understand why? Like if you want to make a witch show, go ahead. Why does it have to be a reboot of Charmed?

After watching the trailer I still stand by that statement. I think if this show wasn’t attached to Charmed it would be great, but watching the trailer all I saw were the similarities with the original. The house looked the same, the way they get their powers was pretty much the same, their powers were almost the same, it just felt too similar. You’d think the CW would want their new version of Charmed to stand out and not be compared to the original, but yet they copied so much.

Even though I have my reservations, I’m still going to give it a chance because I loved Charmed, Madeleine Mantock is a part of this cast (and I loved her in Into the Badlands), and I want to support her. I also want a Charmed show for my mom and I to watch again like we used to with the original.

I’m honestly hoping the similarities end after the first episode (which I’m pretty sure was most of the trailer) because that’s the only way this reboot is going to work. It can’t copy the original or else it will fail. Plain and simple.
