    Really? I thought the complete opposite! It felt like forced nostalgia with really bad acting. Maybe it gets better after the first episode?

    After finishing the series, I started reading some reviews and I thought this was on point.

    For you @Shana

    From Variety...

    Fair warning: Early episodes of “Everything Sucks!” are uneven at best. The half-hour high school comedy resembles the gawky, inexperienced teenagers it depicts: There are lots of awkward tonal collisions; the mix of melodrama, drama, and comedy fails to gel at times; and some characters and situations are a little too cartoonish to really work.

    But it’s almost a different show in its final stretch of episodes. Once it finds its sweet spot, it becomes more than the sum of its influences. What emerges is a somewhat predictable but ultimately heartfelt and charming story about the ways in which self-knowledge is haltingly acquired by adolescents — and adults, too.

    I kept seeing hype about the movie Veronica on Netflix being the "scariest movie ever" so I watched that last weekend. It's a Spanish language movie and all in subtitles, which I didn't expect, but got used to that pretty quickly. The "scariest movie ever" hype is WAY overblown and I would never come close to giving it that title, but, still an enjoyable movie and worth a watch if you like horror movies.

    A fellow horror buff?!

    What would you say is the scariest move you've ever seen? Or most disturbing, underlying, upsetting, etc.?

    Yep I definitely enjoy horror things such as movies, podcasts, shows, books, all that good shit. It's really hard to say what's the scariest movie I've ever seen. Just like there are a lot of different types of comedy, there are a lot of different types of horror. Maybe this will seem ridiculous but the first one that jumps to mind is The Ring. I went and saw that in the theater when it came out and that shit stuck with me even when I went home that night. Another one like that is this movie called The Fourth Kind. That movie did not get very good reviews but it scared the shit out of myself and my wife.

    What about you?

    I feel the same way, and actually agree about The Ring. Right now, The Babadook comes to mind and also The Inn by Ti West.

    Started watching Veronica last night but fell sleep lol. It was really good so far, but i kinda think I'm seeing what's happening already, the "twist" if you will. Will finish tonight!

    You're most likely correct about the "twist". I'll have to check out The Inn, never saw that one. I guess I'm in the minority but The Babadook was very disappointing to me. Most of the movie was enjoyable but I thought the end was incredibly lame.

    The Ring was the scariest movie I'd seen up to that point in my life and no other horror movie has since matched that type of impact. We were children of the VHS tape era and the idea and execution of the tape were phenomenal. Can anyone here truly say they would like to watch that black and white VHS tape by themselves and then answer the phone? That jump shot where they show the babysitter's body in the closet. Fuck me running.

    Oh yeah man, that shot with the babysitter in the closet stayed with me for quite some time. Too bad The Ring 2 was pretty goofty and then Rings was absolutely terrible. Both could have been really awesome.
