1/10: Cringetown I'm not exactly...
Saturday, January 16, 2016

Cringetown I'm not exactly the best critic who spots a terrible actor or bad shot from miles away. Usually, I'm quite an unfussy viewer. Or at least I'd like to think so.Nevertheless, I do get pretty fussy when someone's taking on one of my favourite series of books and after watching the film and the pilot of the show, I just decided that this series just looks way better in a readers head than on screen. That, or it'll take a seriously talented team of people to give justice to every single aspect of this concept.If you thought the film was bad, then don't even watch the show because it's like a supermarket brand version of your favourite cereal. Horrible. Now I understand you can't 100% keep the books and that's not the problem here. The major issues with Shadowhunters was that its basic foundation, which would be the...

10/10: Shadowhunters: from ZERO to HERO...
Tuesday, April 12, 2016

Shadowhunters: from ZERO to HERO I've been a fan of the books years before the TV show started, so I had high expectations. But I also saw enough book to TV adaptations to know what expectations were realistic. Did Shadowhunters blow me away? No, but it did manage to pull me in, very slowly. The show begins with a lot of potential but also with a lot of issues. It's cheesy, the acting was a bit off for some of the actors, it doesn't have the best special effects and the script lacks here and there. And yet I didn't give up on it and I'm so glad I didn't.While season 1 certainly has it's issues, the show also proved that it keeps evolving. It keeps getting better. And when you see the progression they made from the first episode to the finale, you can be sure that this show will deliver...

8/10: People are being too ridiculous...
Wednesday, January 13, 2016

People are being too ridiculous and harsh. I enjoyed the pilot, despite the changes I really liked the pilot. So many other people are complaining about changes made to the TV show but guess what? They said ahead that there were going to be changes so many other people should have anticipated these changes. And apparently they did not, even though they claim otherwise. Yes, spoiler alert, they did change Clary's age, Luke's occupation and other minor stuff like that. Plus they have to make changes to appeal to everybody, not just book readers which I am. So really most of the changes are small, it's still following the same storyline so I think people need to chill out and realize that there were going to be changes anyway. And people are also complaining about the acting. Look, I'll be the first to admit that no one is going to win any Oscars or golden globes...

2/10: My masochistic tendencies start to...
Wednesday, April 3, 2019

My masochistic tendencies start to show Yes, I continued watching even though it pains me. I have read the books, watched the movie and now I am watching the series. I like to tell myself it is only because I like Cassandra Clare's concept of Shadowhunters livin off the grid protecting ungrateful mankind. I also like to think this is the only reason why there are 9 or 10 star ratings - people love it when their favourite books get put to the screen, no matter how abyssal the result.Otherwise I cannot understand why the series has such high ratings since the ACTING is AWFUL- who shall I blame, the casting director?- the actors?- the writer of the dialogue? - to be fair everyone but McNamara (Clary) and Sherwood (Jace) has been cast satisfactory- it is just a shame that the whole series is based on the Lovestory between Clary and Jace. Duh... I was hoping Sherwood would melt eventually...

2/10: I had low expectations anyways...
Wednesday, January 13, 2016

I had low expectations anyways. Suddenly liking the movie more and more If you've read the book there aren't any spoilers. There is nothing specific.I find it hard to blame the actors for this poorly written script. The most obvious problem is that there were amateur actors playing pretty difficult roles. As a bookworm, I am accustomed to not being happy with movies based on YA books. "Shadowhunters" is no exception. They did not choose characters well, besides their lack of talent there are certain characters whose personalities are key to character development and the bond that forms between characters and audience is just not here.Jace was not portrayed well in this show, we don't see any of his "wounded, mysterious, arrogant" self other than people saying he's that way. Once. I've always pictured Jace somewhere between Jamie Campell Bower and Dominic Sherwood. So at least they got a little closer. I didn...
