The Eurovision week ends with Toy’s victory

I had this dilemma this week whether I should make separate posts for the two semifinals and the final or not. Then I realized how time consuming this would be. So in this post, I will be skipping the semifinals.

The big event opened with fado. As the contest was in Portugal, that was almost certain, of course. Personally I like Fado even though I don’t speak portuguese. The words also have great importance but eventually I like what I hear. But not throughout the contest. I guess Portugal dosed off a bit…

In no particular order, my top 10 countries are:

Bulgaria (I didn’t even follow where they ended up)
Finland (I kinda liked the song and found it quite catchy but I guess they finished in one of the last positions)
Denmark (This one was not my personal top 10 but thought would recieve a lot of points)
Slovenia (They performed at the beginning and brought some kind of light and energy to the stage)
Lithuania (Less is more. Needs no further explanation)
Austria (I never thought they would end up that high but still it is in my top 10)
Estonia (The costume itself deserves a top 10 but what a voice!)

…And my top 3

France (What I loved about this song was that it was so plain, nice, to the point)
Cyprus (I would be as happy if they could win. So catchy and sexy)
Israel (No need to say a word. It stucks in your brain from the first moment. I also loved her words after winning. Thank you so much for choosing the different)

Give me back my “Insidious”

I hope someone didn’t remove my fright receptors while I was asleep or something because that was actually what I was doing while watching this famous thriller movie series. As I am a fan of the genre, I’m seriously pissed off when I see this kind of decline. I had felt the same for the “paranormal activity” series, too.

A good horror movie is like the process of good sex, it makes you scream! Insidious is so hideous, you’ll want to leave it in between. Umesh PunwaniKoimoi 1.5/5

No worries! There won’t be any spoilers here. I only wanted to express how I felt. I, obviously, had high hopes since I was waiting for a long time to watch this movie. The two ghostbusters, who we met by the end of the previous episode, must have been thought to add some comedy spice but this recipe definitely doesn’t go well with some genres. It’s definitely a thumbs down 👎 from me.

If you are looking for some spine-chilling thrills and a well-made horror mystery, please look ‘further’. The Last Key is more of a final nail in the coffin for the Insidious series. Renuka VyavahareTimes of India 3/5

There are other things, too. Well, I’m not gonna be too bitchy about it but it was full of cliches. I can guess how frustrating it can get, to invent something new in each movie to scare the shit out of the audience but well, there are really good examples, too.

Eventually, I recommend you to watch it. Yes, there is no typo. I do recommand it. Because that was completely my point of view. I am such an empath :). I would like to leave one door open at least considering that maybe, I was not in the mood that particular night when I watched it. So take a look at the trailer and decide for yourself.
