The Ballad of Buster Scruggs is Vintage Coen Brothers (Review)

When it comes to anthology films, they are usually more miss than hit. And when it comes to original films from Netflix, quite honestly, it’s a tossup. But bringing in the Coen Brothers, who are some of the best filmmakers in the industry over the past few decades, things are sure to look promising for both the anthology genre and Netflix’s original film catalogue. Originally conceived as a six-part miniseries, the Coen Brothers pieced together all the stories into one, two-plus hour film called The Ballad of Buster Scruggs. Playing out from one crazed, western story to the next like flipping through a book (literally), Buster Scruggs is easily the Coen Brothers’ best movie since True Grit. Featuring a collection of great off-the-wall characters, blended with the Coen Brothers’ signature dark humor inserted in dramatic events, it’s difficult not to enjoy the events that play out from one chapter to the next (no matter how dark or grim they may get).

Everything Affects Everything in 13 Reasons Why Season 2 (Review)

13 Reasons Why is one of Netflix’s most popular and controversial shows.  When season one hit the streaming service last year, the show received a lot of criticism for it’s depiction of the teen suicide.  Despite this, the show drew in the ratings and was eventually renewed for a second season.  Viewers were able to binge through season two over the weekend, which somehow upped the scope of the world within the show and delved deeper into the seldom talked about dramas and issues of modern day teenagers. While season one focused on how people’s actions can affect a person, this season shows how everyone can have an influence on everyone with their decisions. Read more
