The world is ending in ‘Now Apocalypse’

I love when Nickelodeon and Disney Channels to go “wild” and do outrageous and crazy roles. That’s what dragged me in when I saw that Starz’s new show “Now Apocalypse” would feature a plethora of them. So let’s talk about “Now Apocalypse” and either you should watch or not. You can probably already guess what my answer is going to be.

It’s the end of the world as we know it

“Now Apocalypse” is a comedy show that follows four friends as through their lives in Los Angeles. It follows their friendship, relationship, dating, and their sex lives. Things turn weird when one friend has visions of the world ending. He must then try to figure out whether it’s too much weed or if he was actually seeing into the future.

The show stars Avan Jogia (“VICTORiOUS”), Beau Mirchoff (“Awkward”), Kelli Berglund (“Lab Rats”), and Roxane Mesquida (“Gossip Girl”). Also in the series is Tyler Posey (“Teen Wolf”) and Jacob Artist (“Glee”). The acting isn’t bad at all. In all honesty, it’s rather good. They are all likable for the most part and do a good job in their roles. It’s not going to get them an Emmy but they should at least get a good pat on the back.

This isn’t the show for you if you don’t like sexual shows. There’s a lot of sex. Gay sex. Straight Sex. Orgies. You name it and the show has it. It’s what you would expect on HBO, Showtime, Netflix, and Cinemax when it comes to their programming. It’s borderline softcore porn but yet it’s using it in a way that also helps propel the story.

The ending of the show was lackluster. Without going too much into details, it was kind was a cliffhanger but not in the way that really made you go “omg what just happened?” It was kind of like “okay…” I just wish it had more of a cliff hanger to it. I honestly thought there was one more episode. I don’t know if I was that invested to it or the cliffhanger was that lackluster.

“Now Apocalypse” is just a show to watch if you are in need of a dirty good time. It’s not a horrible show but it is an earth shattering good show. It’s just one of those shows that you don’t really need to over think but you can still enjoy it. I honestly didn’t know any other characters names until about the sixth episode. If this show comes back for season two, would I watch? Honestly, I probably would. It’s like a trainwreck of sex. You just can’t help but look away.

I do recommend checking out the show. It’s not anything especially but it doesn’t need to be. There are only 10 episodes and they aren’t long at all. You can easily binge the show. This is a prime example of why shows don’t need to be a highly rated show to be a good one. It’s a total gulity pleasure show.

Movie Review: ‘The Outcasts’

Let’s talk about this Victoria Justice movie.

I’m just going to start with this statement: the best thing that Victoria Justice has done in her career was give us the gift of Ariana Grande. There’s also this video that gave us all a meme. I decided to watch her movie “The Outcasts” because it was free on Netflix and I was bored. I apologize to people who actually paid to watch this movie. Yep, it’s going to be that kind of movie review. Here’s my thoughts on it when the trailer came out.

“The Outcasts” follows Vicky J as she and her best friend try to change the ecosystem of a school by causing a social uprise. They turn uncool into cool. That’s pretty much the plot. It’s dull. It’s also extremely unrealistic as the things in this movie wouldn’t ever happen or work. Like, Victoria’s character is using an iMac. There’s no fucking way that would work in his day and age without heavy-duty fixing up that would cost more money than what her character’s father net worth. I understand that it’s a movie but you gotta keep it slightly believable.

This movie something I don’t know how it became a movie. It’s honestly not very good. The only redeeming quality of it is Avan Jogia. He does an extremely good job acting in this movie. He seemed like he was the only that cared. Everyone else didn’t seem to. It was either overacting or just under acting. Victoria also seemed to be overacting. She’s just trying to hard throughout the movie. She’s suppose to be the star but she really isn’t. It’s hard to believe that she had a TV show made for her.

All the character are either blah or just annoying. While I liked Avan’s acting, that doesn’t mean that I look his acting. I honestly just hated every last character in this movie. They were horribly dressed and planned out. Frankly, this movie is just horrible and should be used as torture. The only positive thing that I have to say about this movie is that I appreciate the fact that Vicky J took the time to make a movie. I’m appreciate the effort that she given to make her career happen. It’s the same amount of effort that Gretchen Wieners gave when she tried to make fetch happen. Only one of those things will happen and I’ll let you decided which one that is.

“The Outcasts” also tried to hard to be funny. It’s references and joke honestly just fell flat. Half of the references and jokes weren’t really anything actually teenagers would say. It’s like they never been around real teenagers. It also could be that it was released in 2017 but recorded in 2014. Yep, it took that long to try to make it watchable. They failed on that front. I wouldn’t recommend watching this unless you like crappy teen movies that give actually good crappy teen movies a bad name.
