Senior Year - WHAT IN THE WORLD IS NETFLIX DOING?!!!

I think we'd all agree that there is this certain level of bias in everything we do. I mean, we're freaking humans. In this context, it's watching a movie or Tv show. When you ask someone what they think of a movie, they tend to give you a subjective response sixty percent of the time, and that's not because they are dumb or because they prefer to do that or anything, it's basically just how "they" perceive it. Like every other thing in life, when it comes to judging a movie, a whole lot of other external factors can actually affect how we interpret it. It's one of the reasons I eased up on writing 'reviews' on anything. I'm just going to share my opinion; my view. Enough gibberish. Why are we here? Yeah, well I am here again to help you decide whether to see this particular new Netflix movie or not, so let's get right into it.

SENIOR YEAR?

Yeah I mean, wtf is this title. So this is a movie about a girl in high school who just moved to a new place but is finding it hard to fit in (insanely cliche but okay). She then takes it upon herself to become the most popular girl in school and become prom queen. The former, she was able to achieve, the latter, well... it's complicated. As the cheerleader (cheer captain), she took center stage, but as she was about to do her signature move, her jump was sabotaged by a colleague. She fell down and into a coma for twenty years. After recovering, she returns with a feeling that she has a score to settle.

THE BAD

I had trouble deciding whether to start with the good part of the movie or the bad part. Well, this movie definitely had some flaws. First off, this movie is tagged as Comic. A freaking comedy??!!!!! They've got to be joking. The only time I actually, legitimately laughed was at the very end of the movie, after the end credits. There was this silly sexual innuendo. Freaking hilarious, don't judge me, lol. Some of the scenes were in-plausible. I mean, how do you sabotage and almost kill someone and the movie never talked about it the whole time. This felt like a movie that was made for the oldies.

THE GOOD

The whole saying of 'everything that has a beginning, must have an end' also works in this instance. There were some glimpses of excitement in this movie. First off, I loved Rebel Wilson's acting, and of course her Aussie accent. Yeah I'm biased, but what can I see, I love people's culture and all. The movie really drove home the message about the vain and pointless pursuit of fame and popularity and how it can be detrimental to a person's life. Although it was weird how Young Stephanie's character turned from mean and rude to the newbie, to, 'f*ck yeah, go baby go', but I liked how the movie made her character take a stand against her mother. Sometimes even one's parent might be leading one to doom. If there is anything we learned from this movie, it's that you should never believe anything you see online and don't try to base your life on it.

STREAM OR SKIP?

Bloody skip this. Not worth your time. Although like I said earlier, it might appeal to certain people. It's how life is. BUT, looking at the basic criteria of judging a movie, it's not much of a hit, to be honest. What the hell is that musical at the end of the show???!!! Maybe it's your free day, and the kids are out and you've done all there is to be done in the house, and you have some free time, then and only then should you consider this.

Till next time, cheers.

I like Rebel Wilson best when she is not the main character and plays a supporting role, for example in the movies Pitch Perfect or in Bridesmaids, the latter is a movie that made me laugh.

Senior Year I haven't seen, but its plot reminds me of old movies I watched as a kid, where adults for x reason go back to school or college. It's a formula that most of the time works.

I agree with what you say at the beginning, because art is subjective. A painting, a book, a movie. Many other external factors influence our perception. It influences our mood, the problems that may be affecting us at that moment, the knowledge we have about some subjects, etc. Everything influences and I have proven it, movies that I saw when I was 20 years old, I see them now and I have another reading and points of view of them that are different from before.

Spot on with that last paragraph.

Always a pleasure when you stop by.

Greetings.

I saw this movie over the weekend, I decided to watch it especially because of the actress although I suspected beforehand that the movie had typical high school concepts and all that.

I asked myself a similar question, how come it was 20 years after being in a coma and the subject of death was assumed so lightly.

Overall I found it entertaining and laughed at few moments, particularly how they managed to show the adolescent idealism of fame and popularity in the crazy dance scene and all the social networking nitty-gritty.

Reading your review is a learning experience for me, I still have a long way to go.

Many successes.

Thank you so much.

Your words are so kind.

Your comment encapsulates how most of us felt about the movie.

It had its moment but it was a fail in the end.

Thank you for stopping by 😌

Thanks for saving my time, man. I was really considering seeing this movie very soon but a lot of bad reviews online have just kept me away from it. I don’t really trust online critics so yeah, I was going to see it anyway.

Well, I guess I won’t now. I love Rebel Wilson and all. I think she’s a great actor and honestly very hilarious but there will always be bad movies, right? Onto other movies it is.

You are absolutely write about human being bias, even unintentionally.😁


I saw this movie suggested on my Netflix page. Seeing the trailer, I began to wonder "How have the kinds of movies I have been seeing lately come to suggest this?"

It just seemed like something for someone else, not me.
