What I didn't like about Stranger Things
Contains spoilers and unpopular opinions
- •Just because you're an homage to 80s movies doesn't mean you have to have the diversity of an 80s moviePOC & queer people did actually exist in the 80s, for example.
- •Taking photos of a girl you're into from the bushes is stalking & should not be so easily forgivenI don't feel bad about your camera.
- •A little boy survives for however long but Barb dies immediately& how obvious it was that that was going to happen.
- •Eleven's obsession with being pretty makes no senseDo you think this is what girls are inherently obsessed with? She's been imprisoned and experimented on her whole life and you think she's most concerned with being PRETTY? Girl doesn't even know what a friend is but not being pretty is the problem?? Ughh.
