YOU CANT FIND WILL BUT YOU CAN FIND SPOILERS AHEAD!!!!!! ***

While I am writing this review, I already watched Stranger Things the second time. It consists just the right amount of horror, mystery, comedy, and romance that set in the 1980s, and how cool can it get with all these mixtures in one package? (STEPHAN KING REPRESENT!)Not only that , but I just CANT get over with how Stranger things combine everything so lovable such as …

The characters

1.  Will, Dustin, Michael, and Lucas are best friends that reminded you of your best friends in middle school that do stupid things or make the cutest promises that you used to view as the most important thing in the world. I think what is great about Stranger Things is that they realistically portray the pureness in a friendship just like theirs. They fight, they made up, they laugh, and they went through hardship together.

2. The most iconic character that is loved by all is ELEVEN! She does not have much of a dialog, but her backstory is the most interesting one that really started to reveal all the secret operations that has been happening in this town. I think it is also incredible that despite all the crazy experiments on her, she still stayed innocent in which she starts to cope and learn how to interact with people from Michael.

3. The character that really put the puzzles together that makes the story even more interesting and stimulating in my opinion is Will’s mother Winona Ryder. Her determination and stubbornness shows how powerful a mother figure can be, and how far she is willing to go to find her son.

Tribute to 

1. Did you see the similarity between Steven Spielberg’s E.T. and this scene ? 🙂

2. How about this implication of a ouija board ?

3. Does this look like something from the original horror in 1979 Alien Coccoon scene ? It may not look the same, but Stranger Things definitely have the influences of Ridley Scott portrayal of aliens

Overall, I think the show is so successful due to its combination of little details of every genre in which that fit to the taste of the audience. On the other hand, it also contains its own originality in it that separate the show from all of its influences. I need some of them Stranger Things season 2 please !!!! 😀 😀 😀
