Sorry for the lack of updates/movie reviews, been having an affair, cheating on movies with Tv-shows.
Started watching Jane The Virgin, got hooked, and so I started binge-watching the episodes that have been released. I am sorry, but reviews will be up shortly. Upcoming ones are;
Smurfs: The Lost Village
– not in that particular order per say, but they will be up as soon as possible. Also, on the 23rd am I attending the screening to American Made, so that review will pop up here as well.
As mentioned, I started watching Jane The Virgin, and honestly, I had zero expectations. I had caught some episodes here and there on tv when zapping through during a dull day, but since I never followed it from the very beginning, I didn’t become interested or felt the slight of desire to look it up, I just kept it in the background and left it at that.
Now, years later since the premiere, I decided to give it a try and I am thrilled that I have because I am smitten by the characters, script, and fantastic plot.
The writers have successfully hidden few grenades here and there that goes nuclear and explodes throughout the story, keeping you on the edge, gasping for air by the end of every episode with its great suspense and brilliant cliffhangers.
Jane The Virgin, the title alone says a lot, but there’s so much more to it. Jane, a Catholic woman who gave a promise to not only God but her grandmother that she would wait until marriage to have sexual relationships, discovers that she was accidentally artificially inseminated with the sperm from her boss that she had a crush on several years back.
The characters are lovable from the get go, there are ones you want to hate due to their actions, yet you cannot find it in you to despise them.
Also, you become completely smitten by the main star that is Jane played by the immense talent and beauty, Gina Rodriguez. Another blast is the actor who plays Jane’s father, he literally beside shining through every moment he’s on camera, has the best lines and plays the role so perfectly that I doubt any other actor would’ve pulled it off as great as he does. I’ve had to pause several times because I was laughing so hard to whatever he has said, done, or expression he’s delivered – a true joy.
A wonderful show that I strongly recommend, haven’t had this fun watching one in a long time, truly have enjoyed it and cannot wait to see where it’ll take me. 7/10
