Stranger Things
« on: Jul 01, 2016 at 01:32 AM »


Synopsis:
Set in Hawkins, Indiana during the 1980s, Stranger Things chronicles the search for a young boy who vanishes into thin air under highly suspicious circumstances. His mother opens an investigation into the boy’s disappearance with local authorities, unraveling a series of mysteries involving top-secret government experiments, terrifying supernatural forces and one very strange little girl. A love letter to the ubiquitous cult classics of the 80s, Stranger Things is also a coming of age story for the boy’s three closest friends that draws them into a world where mysteries lurk beneath the surface.

Cast includes Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Matthew Modine, Cara Buono, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp

number of episodes: 8
network: Netflix
premiere date: July 15, 2016

Trailer:
https://youtu.be/b9EkMc79ZSU


...Looks like a homage to the Spielberg films like E.T., Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and maybe some other films like The Goonies and Super 8 (which in itself was a homage to Spielberg) mixed in.

All 8 episodes will be streamed on Netflix this July 15.

Very Amblin-esque trailer & a nice Drew Struzan-style poster. And the casting of Winona Ryder is just great.

I wonder if the 8 episodes will tell the complete story or is this planned as a Season 1?

The '80s homaging is driven home by casting actual '80s stars Winona Ryder and Matthew Modine

Already out yesterday. Got good reviews from critics. And although not yet greenlit, the plan is to continue the story to a Season 2.

Saw the pilot, and thought it was awesome; they got all the 1983 details right--Dungeons & Dragons, hairstyles, fashion, music, and lots more, right to the fonts used for the credits with the dirty, grainy look.

Only thing I didn't like was the side story of the annoying sister and her douchebag boyfriend.

Watched until episode 4 --halfway through-- it's truly compelling, wanted to watch it until the end but I have to get up early; will finish the last 4 episodes tomorrow.

Binge-watched this. Can't help noticed that Mike looks more like a girl and El looks more of a boy.

Loving the homages to Spielberg, Stephen King, Alien, Jim Henson, 80's slasher films, and so much more!

Here's a Spotify playlist with all the songs in the order which these were played:

I was gonna post that. Anyone gonna try and get her autograph?

Anyway, I love this show. I'm PRAYING season 2 will be just as good if not better. These types of shows have the tendency to have a far inferior second season.

Loved the first 7 episodes. Episode 8 kinda fell flat for me. Parang minadali yung conclusion. And a lot of things are still a mystery. Understandable naman since may season 2.

The Upside Down world reminded me of Silent Hill. The monster even looked like one of the monsters from the game.
SHOW ME THE MONEY!!!!

You can have an autograph and/or photograph (taken only by the official photographer) with Millie Bobby Brown, but for a price. So far, APCC Manila has not announced the exact prices yet, but I'm guessing it will be in the range of US$ 30 to US$ 40 per autograph or photo.

You can have an autograph and/or photograph (taken only by the official photographer) with Millie Bobby Brown, but for a price. So far, APCC Manila has not announced the exact prices yet, but I'm guessing it will be in the range of US$ 30 to US$ 40 per autograph or photo. 

Update from APCC Manila's FB page:

We would like to clarify that the tickets to Millie Bobby Brown's autograph, photograph, and meet-and-greet sessions are free, but slots are only limited and these have already been awarded to winners of Netflix's "Stranger Things" Facebook contest. You can still catch her on Saturday, August 27, 1:30pm, at the Main Stage, for "In Conversation with Millie Bobby Brown."

Watching season 1 again.

Millie Bobby Brown can not only act well, she sings well too, and can even rap, Daming videos sa youtube. Talagang talented na bata. Even Aaron Paul of Breaking Bad is a big fan.
