    @AislingDM I think it was definitely a more light hearted perspective on mental health, I personally really liked the film because I liked the way they touched on stigma around Jennifer Lawrence's character and the way she responded to trauma. I think it could've gone more in depth into it but I understand there's often stigma around these disorders and would be worried they'd maybe lean into that a bit too much and add further stigma in society towards it <3

    Definitely!! I think it's so important also that films give a range of portrayals of mental health needs, right? Like no two people are going to experience schizophrenia for example in the same way. Plus i know films only have a two-hour window to work in! xx @Brookee

    I definitely agree with you there! It's so important to have a diverse portrayal so there's more understanding and less stigma. Could've have said it better myself everyone responds and deals with disorders and illnesses completely differently to one another :) For sure, it's really difficult to accurately portray how someone manages within 2 hours, I agree! xx

    I've just started watching the new season of Stranger Things! Has anyone else watched it yet?
    Maybe somethings don't get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can't. Maybe some of us will never fully be okay, but at least we're here. We're still trying. We're doing the best we can. That's worth celebrating too ❤

    Yesssss @Aife I'm trying to limit myself to an episode a day because of exams lol, I'm on episode 3 and I'm loving it so far. What do you think of it?
    The steps you take don’t need to be big, they just need to take you in the right direction.

    Watched "They Live" recently with a friend, it was pretty interesting!

    I recently watched an anime movie "A Silent Voice" that was absolutely excellent. It's very serious and possibly upsetting though so I'd recommend looking up some trigger warnings before watching but I honestly can't praise it enough!

    @Aife
    I’ve been trying my best to like it. Got to session 3 and I just can’t force myself to watch it anymore. In my opinion it’s abit boring and predictable.

    I loved this season of Stranger Things @Aife !! I thought it was nice to see the kids a bit more grown up and navigating all their relationships in new ways. Plus I loved the music. Admittedly I did think it was a bit gory this season!!

    I found that too @Siobhan but season 4 is the best one yet. Keep going with watching it!

    @AislingDM yeah the music is soo good in the new season! I keep listening to the soundtrack! Yeah it was a bit gory wasn't it? Not long until part 2 of this season!

    I finally got around to seeing Everything Everywhere All at Once after being recommended it by just about everyone I know. :lol: Very good movie it was very sweet but also extremely silly, can definitely understand why it got so much attention!

    It's just such a wonderfully engaging movie, right @Riley ? So unique as well I reckon, I love love love seeing family dynamics play out in films and observing how they progress throughout the plot!! What was your fave bit of the movie? xx
