If the ambition is to provide two hours of instantly forgettable, popcorn-munching escapism, it succeeds.
In truth, there is barely enough story here to make a film.
All of these films share one commonality, that being a kind of emotional center that humanizes a cast of monsters.
The story, direction, characters, and writing/dialogue is akin to taking a tranquilizer shot to the neck, but everything else was so well done.
Just finished season 1 and all I can say is it's enthralling!
The young actors are superb!
It's a well crafted series with the Duffer Bro's doing their best work!
Eagerly watching season 2!
If you're a fan of the impossible it's a must see!
Season 2 is just as brilliant!
As the story unfolds it becomes a little clearer but I'm hoping for a season 3!
The cast is incredible and all actors give believable performances!
Hats off to Netflix n I won't be unsubscribing. Simply brilliant!
First season was greatest of all the thing i have ever watched anywhere in the world. season 1 was full of thriller, my heart beat was quite high throughout the episodes. but season 2 was different, it was awesomely greatest show ever created on the earth. it was full of thriller, my heart was pumping too high. but episode 8 and 9 was, emotional for me, i couldn't stop crying, the scene where wills mom and brother and mike was reminding him all the things from his childhood, was awesome and emotional at the same time. again when El met with mike for the first time in season 2, that was emotional moment for me, i was too happy to express my feeling. and when mike kissed El, i was like in cloud 11. all the actors in the series was great, because i never realized or cared about the actors once, i was going along the story and the characters of that story. it was like, i am there with them. please don't kill El or Mike and please don't disturb their love story.
Great BIG GIANT 10 out of 10. The entire YOUNG staff is full of YOUNG ACTORS. And ACTRESS that are NOT to Popular BUT NOT TO Popular AND that is Great for THIS SHOW. It has a Terrific CAST and Winona Ryder. That is Awesome CONGRATULATIONS for her because she was REALLY COOL in the 80s. Not so much in the 90s. SHE still was BUT more in the 80s. And this SHOW is BASED in the 80s when she was VERY Popular. SO I THINK that's why she just steals this show. The YOUNG ACTRESS that Playes 11 WOW Great to see more of her WORK. Anyways I could go on but even Seran Astin in Season 2 he did a Great Job.
This is by far the BEST TV SHOW!
For Adults it has that "Goonies" feel with "It" and "E.T" and they nailed the 80's look and the show is Spooky but not really Terrifying and it's fun and dramatic at the same time which makes it great!
