Sunshine's Weekly Review : 2/18/19 - 2/24/19 MuA

Sunshine’s Weekly Review - February 18-24, 2019

Another week, another set of Reviews! Lots of TV was watched this week. I also didn’t hit my gym goal for the week and I wonder if those are correlated?


Head Above Water by Avril Lavigne

Released February 15th


Avril is back with an album that seems to have trouble deciding what it wants to be. Track to Track, it feels very disjointed and is overproduced. There are moments where you feel the emotional resonance that was put into certain songs but the production reeks of trying to play to a mass audience. Head Above Water has moments of catchy hooks but mostly struggles to find the powerful voice that it was searching for. 4 out of 10.

Tracks to Enjoy: “Birdie” & “Tell Me It’s Over”


Real Bros of Simi Valley - Season 2

A little more budget and a longer form adds a nice boost to the quality of RBOSM in the second season. The show still manages to stay engaging in its 2nd season, coming back with even more wit and charm. We also get a bit more character development to see which players really make the show work. If you like the first season, you’ll enjoy kicking back and watching the follow up as it plays out being more of the same.  8 out of 10

The Dragon Prince - Season 1

From the creators of Avatar: The Last Airbender, we get The Dragon Prince. This kid-friendly cartoon is layered with a simple story for the kids while layered well with clever pop culture references and thoughtful content for the adults. The animation looks great and the band of misfits that you follow are enjoyable and easily hold your attention through ten 22-minute episodes. 7.5 out of 10

The Dragon Prince - Season 2

Everything that The Dragon Prince does well in the first season, they expand upon in the follow-up. Expect your heartstrings to be pulled and for deeper concepts to be explored as we continue with our heroes on their journey. I found myself more invested this time around and I am truly excited to see what happens in the future for this show. 9 out of 10


The Amazon Prime docuseries on Lorena Bobbitt gives us a pretty in-depth look into each case surrounding the infamous evening and even dives into what happens after. The show is informative and is watchable from start to finish. There is nothing truly groundbreaking about series and I am not a fan of generic replacements to make up for footage that doesn’t exist but when all is said it done, its a fine watch. 6.5 out of 10


Abducted in Plain Sight (2017)

For its style and delivery, it’s fine. Nothing groundbreaking in the way that this was shot and edited but the content is absolutely mind-blowing. Viewers will likely find themselves yelling at the television and face-palming themselves as the parents retell the story of their daughter's kidnapping. 6.5 out of 10

A Star is Born (2018)

A Star is Born hits all the beats that it needs to and I completely understand why people love it. There are moments that down right gave me chills, specifically, pretty much anytime Gaga performs; and Sam Elliott speaks volumes in a brief but incredibly strong turn as Cooper’s brother. For all the good, there are still some flaws, mainly in some awkward chemistry moments between Cooper and Gaga where they struggled to find the emotional chords that they were looking for. Still a rock solid movie. 8 out of 10
