If you’ve watched Part 1 of CAOS, then you really need to get invested in part 2, because it was unreal!

Part 2 finds Sabrina exploring her dark side, whilst learning more about her heritage and also trying to maintain a friendship with her mortal friends. After a devastating break-up with Harvey, Sabrina is now romantically involved with warlock, Nicholas Scratch – although that doesn’t mean her feelings for Harvey are no longer there.

Sabrina’s powers strengthen to the point that she is now performing miracles and people are becoming frightened of her. She is a lot more than just a teenage witch and a very close relationship of hers is about to be torn a part because of this. With every step Sabrina takes, the closer we are to meeting the devil himself.

This whole second part of CAOS was so incredible and it was really exciting to see Sabrina embrace the much darker side of herself. The love triangle between Harvey, Sabrina and Nick was a delight to watch and it is super hard to know which team you’re on, especially when all the plot twists come out to play with your feels.

I especially adored Theo’s (used to be known as Susie) transformation and how they all went about it. They was so accepting of who he wanted to become and took to the new name within seconds. Of course, they didn’t make Theo’s transformation perfect, as he had to first deal with a lot of bullies to get to where he is now.

So much happened in part 2, from musical numbers to plot twist after plot twist, and I honestly would love to talk to you about everything that happened, except if I did that, there’d be no reason for you to watch and you really need to go watch! The cast really step up their game this season and have more battles to fight than before. I can’t wait for part 3 & 4, because I know they’re going to be such a wild ride!

The Perfect Date

Brooks Rattigan is desperate for the perfect life, with the perfect car, the perfect college and the perfect girl. Recce, a fellow student of Brooks rides the most unreal car and always teases him about driving it, but then never letting him – so when the opportunity arises to take Reece’s cousin, Celia, to her dance – as a stand-in boyfriend – and drive Reece’s car, Brooks is all in.

When Brooks realises how great of a chaperone he is, him and his best friend, Murph (a programmer), set up an app for Brooks to basically sell himself as a stand-in for whatever females desire. His life becomes surrounded by lies, especially when it comes to wealthy high school student, Shelby, and getting in to his dream college, Yale.

Brooks and Celia stay friends after their first ‘fake date’ together and help each other get what they want – except what they think they both want, it turns out it’s not really the case anymore.

Ah, another Netflix movie starring Noah Centineo… who’s going to say no to that? I knew from the minute I saw the trailer, that this was going to be the most cliche and predictable movie and guess what, it was! Now, I’m most definitely not complaining, as I’m all for cliche and predictable, so from start to finish – I was reeled in and hooked!

I’m not going to lie, as they say in the movie, Brooks is pretty much a jigalow, minus the sex part. He is at every girl’s beck and call whenever they need him, whether that be for a dancing class, a couples tennis game, a person to talk to, a person to go on a walk with, etc. He’s your guy! The app is designed for women to tell Brooks where he is needed and the precise description of how he has to be and how he has to look. Women have all the control here. He can be a cowboy one day and a salsa dancer the next, it’s totally up to them. I personally, would absolutely love this app, but only if Noah Centineo shows up at my door.

I really loved Brooks and Celia’s friendship throughout and it was very obvious as to where the two of them was headed. All in all though, it really is a wonderful movie if you love a bit of cheese. It’s just that movie to make you smile, with a simple story-line and a whole lot of wonderful actors to go along with it. I’d definitely recommend!

The Last Summer

I’m always so down for a movie where it consists of a cast full of incredible actors I love and ‘The Last Summer’ had that down to a tee. KJ Apa (Riverdale), Maia Mitchell (The Fosters, Good Trouble), Halston Sage (Paper Towns), Tyler Posey (Teen Wolf), Jacob Latimore (The Maze Runner, Candy Jar) and Sosie Bacon (Thirteen Reasons Why). What a perfect cast!

The movie shows KJ, Maia, Halston, Jacob & Sosie’s life, as they spend their last summer’s together before college starts. Tyler Posey played Halston’s love interest and a famous baseball player.

I have to honestly say that I have very mixed feelings about this movie, however I’ve still decided to recommend it to you anyway. Some of the story-lines were wonderful, for example KJ Apa and Maia Mitchell’s romance blossoming, and Halston Sage and Tyler Posey’s summer fling. The other story-lines for me were a bit of a hit and miss – I could’ve easily gone without them.

That being said, I would still recommend it because the movie itself was a light-hearted watch, full of summer romances and teenagers trying to figure out what they want in life. If you are a fan of one or all of these actors, it makes it all the more worth the watch, but as I said before, some of them could’ve easily have not made the cut and it wouldn’t have affected the movie in any sort of way.

Unicorn Store

After failing at art school, Kit (Brie Larson) returns back to her parents home, jobless and miserable.

To get her parents off of her back and stop them from bragging about Kevin all the time, she takes a temporary office job as photocopier person, which is as dull and grey compared to her sparkly and colourful personality.

Kit shows quite a child-like personality, still talking to her care bear teddies at night, so when she is given the opportunity the fulfil her life long dream of adopting a Unicorn, she does everything in her power to make it happen.

To start off with, I was a bit unsure of whether I would enjoy this movie or even stick it out to the end, however, although I wondered what on earth I was watching – I was so fascinated and in awe of the story-line that within the first ten minutes of the movie, I was hooked! The passion and dedication she has for getting a Unicorn makes you stick it out until the end, because you just need to know if she’s being conned or if she actually gets a real life Unicorn!

If you’ve watched ‘Captain Marvel’, you will already know that Brie Larson and Samuel L Jackson have incredible chemistry, so to see the two of them back together as a duo – they worked perfectly. I couldn’t imagine anyone else doing this movie alongside Brie.

‘Unicorn Store’ helps us to celebrate and embrace our inner child, in a world which we are forced to grow up and let go of our childhood. I ended up really loving this movie and how colourful Kit made the world appear. It was a really light-hearted and charming film, which slightly focused on a deeper situation regarding the pressures of growing up, becoming an adult and not being a complete disappointment to your family.

My ever-growing love for Brie Larson also made this a wonderful watch, just because she was also so wonderful. The fact that this was her directorial debut gave the movie that extra sparkle and has got me excited for Brie’s future directorial projects, along with her future acting performances as well.

    I really enjoyed Unicorn Store! It was so silly but actually had some really lovely messages in it. And I’d just watch anything with Brie Larson in it!

      Completely agree with the part where you’d watch anything with Brie Larson in! It was definitely a silly and child-like movie, but that plot line, as you said, definitely paved the way for really lovely and meaningful messages that we all needed to heart 🙂

    I was drawn in to the Noah Centineo movie too and agree with your review, Shelby! It was predictable but fun and Noah is always great! I really loved Unicorn Store. I think i just loved the sparkle and colour and her being herself. The world needs more sparkle and colour. I thought it was a beautiful concept! 🙂 Lucy xx

    Sabrina has been on my list for so long now, but I haven’t had chance to watch it yet. The Unicorn Store spunds like a fun movie and I love Brie Lawson so it’s a win-win.
