Crash Landing on You KDrama Review

Crash Landing on You (2019) from Netflix is a KDrama with romance written into it. Like Romeo and Juliet, our star-crossed lovers are meant to be together but held apart by differences of birth. Not Capulet and Montague, but divided instead by the border between North and South Korea. Yoon Se Ri is a beautiful…

Eurovision Song Contest on Netflix

Eurovision Song Contest on Netflix by Lela Bay When the Eurovision Song Contest ad appeared at the top of my Netflix app, I didn’t go in with high expectations. Will Ferrell movies are often silly to the point of campy, and that has it’s place. The addition of Rachel McAdams got me to click the…
