But after the painfully long wait, Netflix’s hit sci-fi series “Stranger Things” has returned in its most exciting and emotional season yet. To put things simply: the new season of “Stranger Things” is almost absolutely perfect.

Every summer in Scandinavia, Europeans celebrate the summer solstice with an array of festive activities, such as traditional dancing, gourmet cooking, and lots of drinking. Extravagant clothes are worn, music is played, and sometimes pagan rituals are practiced during the longest day of the year, where sunlight is constant and the celebrations are continuous for weeks.

It may have ended over a month ago, but I still have a broken heart over the massively disappointing, horribly paced and written the final season of HBO’s fantasy epic “Game of Thrones.” With an ending that felt not only empty but poorly planned, let’s go over what went wrong and how the final season should have actually played out.
Arts staff writer Dominic LeRose shares his take on how the final season of HBO's "Game of Thrones" should have been written.
Godzilla is an international cultural phenomenon that has inspired 35 total films. The gigantic ocean lizard is one of the most iconic creations in global entertainment history. Originally created by Japanese filmmakers in 1954, Hollywood has generated three total Godzilla films, the latest being “Godzilla: King of the Monsters.” It was a visually stunning display of CGI perfection, yet also a disastrous compilation of storytelling.
Widely raved about for its dark humor and story, Bill Hader’s HBO dark comedy series “Barry” wrapped up its second season Sunday night, leaving us with a rather disappointing episode but a promising cliffhanger.
There was never a bigger or greater TV show in history. Originally airing in 2011, HBO’s “Game of Thrones” spanned eight seasons and helped transform the fantasy genre through its human-centered drama, complex characters and a captivating plot. With the series ending Sunday night, most fans, including myself, were extremely disappointed with how it ended.
Already grossing nearly $2.5 billion worldwide at the box office, “Avengers: Endgame” is perhaps the biggest film event of the year. Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe waited a year for the studio to deliver an epic conclusion that united all of the superheroes to defeat the mad titan Thanos, and directors Joe and Anthony Russo did not disappoint.
After last week’s somewhat rushed and disappointing episode, HBO aired one of the best episodes of “Game of Thrones” by a long shot this Sunday. Two weeks ago director Miguel Sapochnik gave us “The Long Night,” the giant battle at Winterfell against the Army of the Dead, which brought the remaining characters together to fight for their lives in a spectacular array of CGI and fantasy spectacles. Now he directed “The Bells,” an episode that not only shocked audiences and delivered stunning action but was rooted in powerful, emotional suspense that honored its complex characters.
After a gigantic episode involving the war at Winterfell between the surviving heroes and the Army of the Dead, episode four of the eighth and final season of “Game of Thrones” entitled “The Last of the Starks” offered both recovery from last week and a build up to the show’s spectacular finish. In one of the best-written episodes in the series, the show laid the framework for yet another battle and the show’s climax.
***Major Spoiler Warning***
Virtually every remaining character in the series is gathered together at Winterfell to fight the Dead. With so many lovable characters in the same presence, episode two of season eight of “Game of Thrones” titled “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms” did a remarkable job of reminding us why the show truly works so well — the emotional depth and the rich characters.
Stephen King’s “IT” is known for its unsettling premise that centers around a demonic clown named Pennywise preying on children in a small town in Maine. The 2017 film adaptation of King’s over-1,000-page long novel from 1986 stands as the highest grossing horror film of all time and is a chilling yet heartwarming adaptation. Simply put, “IT” is a monumental horror classic that doesn’t get the appreciation it deserves for its rich human story.
Sir David Attenborough is the most well-known naturalist alive, spanning a career at the BBC as a nature documentarian and presenter since 1954. Attenborough’s cutting-edge nature programs such as “Life on Earth” (1979), “The Living Planet” (1984), “The Trials of Life” (1990), “The Life of Birds” (1998), “The Blue Planet” (2001), and “Planet Earth” (2006) have transported audiences into the most spectacular settings on the planet and have documented the world’s most extraordinary spectacles of life.
HBO’s “Game of Thrones” is without question the most popular television series in history, spanning across the entire world to become a cultural phenomenon and milestone in entertainment history. Many fans of the show admit how they usually have a distaste for the fantasy genre, alluding to how the show deviates from traditional fantasy stories and is itself a refreshing and unique take on the genre.
The Marvel cinematic universe is one of the biggest franchises in entertainment history, with each installment generating hundreds of millions of dollars, sometimes even exceeding $1 billion as in the case of “Black Panther” and “Avengers: Infinity War” from 2018.
The horror genre has become more appreciated within the last decade or so, with films like “It," “The Witch," “A Quiet Place," “Get Out” and “The Babadook” able to terrify audiences while simultaneously examining important topics surrounding human nature.
Ricky Gervais is known for his unfiltered, politically incorrect style of comedy, both on stage as a stand-up comic and in his other media appearances. People either get offended by or fall in love with the British comedian. I’ve loved Gervais’ work — not just his brutally honest style, but also the stories he crafts that are a proper blend of humor and heart.
