This show is about a teenager who had lost her love of music after her mother’s passing until one day something unexpected happens and she finds her love of music all over again through the help of three strange teenage boys who are not as normal as it may seem. 





1. Kissing Booth (1-2/3 Trailer)

The Kissing Booth – When Elle Evans a girl who you could say was a late bloomer finds herself and her best friend running a kissing booth for their high schools spring carnival, where unexpectedly she is forced to be face-to-face with her secret crush, her life turns upside down and she is forced to choose to follow her heart or to follow the rules. 

The Kissing Booth 2 – Elle after spending her whole summer with Noah now has to comeback to reality while he heads to Harvard while she stays back to finish her last year of high school now has to face the struggles of reality from a long distance relationship, college applications, and a new friendship with a new handsome classmate could change every thing for her.

The Kissing Booth 3 – What we can learn from where we left off from movie 2 and the teaser trailer for this movie is that Elle is conflicted again on whether or not to go to school with Noah or Lee her best friend since forever. The trailer also seems like it is taking place during summer break and what we get in the last movie towards the end also is Marco not giving up and wanting to be with Elle so I’m sure we will get some of those moments as well and see how she reacts to this in this movie. 

 What I see similar in all of these movies is that Elle always has a conflict in her life with the people she loves the most and how they all now have an impact on the decisions she has to make for herself and how it will affect this third movie.


2. To All The Boys (1-2/3 Sneak Peak)

To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before –  Laura Jean Covey a teenage girl writes letters to her past loves, only for herself. Until one day all the letters were sent out to the boys and her life soon becomes chaos. 

To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before: P.S. I Still Love You – Laura Jean and Peter have officially went from pretend official to official official when all of a sudden another past love shows up and shakes up everything.

Sneak Peak Of To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before: Always And Forever, Laura Jean – It seems from what you can see from the sneak peak that Laura Jean and Peter’s relationship still is a little rocky from what it looks like and that Laura Jean is hiding something from Peter but doesn’t want to to ruin her relationship with Peter. But What are your ideas on what may happen? 

With what has happened in all the movies with Laura Jean and Peter it is safe to say that they fight for each other  but there is always something that causes drama in their relationship normally through other people I am excited to see how they finish off the movies for these and how it will coincide with the rest of the movies before hand.


3. After (1-2 Trailer)

After – Follows Tessa Young, a dedicated student, loyal girlfriend to her high school sweetheart, and obedient daughter during her first semester in college as she is ready for a grand and ambitious future, when everything changes when her guarded world is opened up by the people around her but more importantly when she meets the mysterious and brooding Hardin Scott in who makes her question everything she wants in life.

After We Collided – Follows the now complicated relationship of Tessa and Hardin in which they need to figure out what they are but when life and others get in the way they found that it is not that easy and if they both can change for love and if they are really meant to be. 

 After in its similarities is that it is about the troubles of Hardin and Tessa’s relationship now that they have announce they are also creating a third and fourth movie as well as the second movie officially being out soon in the U.S. I am excited to see where they end up.


4. Back To The Future (1-3)

Back To The Future – Marty McFly, a typical eighties teen, sent back accidentally to 1955 in a DeLorean turned into a time machine by slightly mad scientist Dr. Emmett Brown (Doc Brown) is faced to help make is teenage parents fall in love and get back to the future.

However unfortunately a discovery leads Marty to go to his friends aid in which Marty has to use the time machine and go back to the old west in order to help get them both back to the future.

With these movies it seems that Marty had always gotten in the predicament until the third movie where this time it was  Marty’s time to help his friend Doc Brown.

 All of the Jurassic Park movies show that the island is a difficult place and the way they treated the Dinosaurs like zoo animals affect how when they were in higher power over the other people that they want to take back their own lives as the wild animals they are.

Untitled and or also known as Indiana Jones 5 has been talked about now and the idea been tossed around for some time now with that in mind I hope that they will bring back some classic characters to continue the adventure Jones was always in.

One night, in a moment of defiance, Cole secretly stays up past his bedtime to discover she’s actually a cold-blooded killer who’s in league with the Devil.

The Babysitter: Killer Queen – Two years after Cole survived a satanic blood cult, he’s living another nightmare in high school and when the demons from his past show up to make his life hell he has to try and get rid of them all over again. 

 The movies I feel is the first in many ways but now an older version of him trying to fight his past.

Called in by local Police departments to assist in solving crimes of a serial and/or extremely violent nature where the perpetrator is unknown (referred to by the Unit as the unknown subject or “unsub” for short), the B.A.U. uses the controversial scientific art of profiling to track and apprehend the unsub. Profiling entails coming up with basic characteristics of the unsub and the victims (referred to as the victimology), using evidence from the case and matching that information to historic precedents and psychological analyses as a means to solve the case. Because of the nature of the work conducted by the B.A.U. – the work being time consuming and psychologically demanding – its members are fiercely loyal to the Unit and to its other members. Also because of the work’s overall demanding nature, not many members of the B.A.U. have been able to maintain a happy or stable family life. 

 From Season 1 till the shows now end the show has taught many the wonders in a family and friends even when doing a job of such a difficult subject, you get to see the relationships grow in every way from becoming closer to growing apart.

But disturbing revelations … 

From the beginnings of this show to now the ending coming up it has always taught about relationships for instance the show has said ““A wise man once told me, ‘family don’t end in blood.’ But it doesn’t start there either. Family cares about you, not what you can do for them family’s there; for the good, bad, all of it. They got your back, even when it hurts. That’s family. That sound like your mother?””-Dean Winchester(Supernatural Season 10:Inside Man).
