#SciFi Worth Streaming: Paper Girls #MovieReview

 

Although the girls are from 1988, the comparison to Stranger Things stops there. Based on a comic series that was published before Stranger Things, Paper Girls begins on November 1, 1988. These are four tween girls who deliver newspapers. The morning after Halloween is a bit rough, so they band together for safety. They are then thrown into the future. Part of it is really scary. Part of it seems pretty normal.

The four girls don’t know each other and are forced into a friendship as the series moves on. They do meet their older selves to see how their lives turned out. Most of them are unhappy with what they discover.

Hmm, my 12-year-old self wanted to either train horses or be a writer. I got the writer thing going. So, maybe she’d be happy with me.

There’s time travel and a secret war and a strange phenomenon that sucks things into the future.  I heard it wasn’t renewed for a second season, but this series is definitely worth watching. I’ll go find the comics to find out what happens.

Here’s the trailer:

The Adam Project: #SciFi #MovieReview

Time-traveling science fiction with a little bit of space action, The Adam Project is an entertaining watch. Ryan Reynolds plays his usual snarky character and goes toe-to-toe with a younger version of himself.

The story is engaging and the acting is very good. The story wasn’t anything new, but it was put together well. There was lots of humor and a few twists. Nothing too surprising, but good enough to keep me watching.

I wasn’t bored and didn’t resort to doing something else while watching, which means I give it a beer is optional rating.  It’s streaming on Netflix if you want to check it out. It’s good to get some decent sci-fi to watch.

Of course, as with any movie or show, it could have been better with people-eating reptiles or a cheesy dance number.
