If You Aren't Watching Buzzfeed Unsolved, Now Is The Time To Start

If You Aren't Watching Buzzfeed Unsolved, Now Is The Time To Start

It’s Halloween, so it’s the perfect time to start!

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably at least heard of Buzzfeed Unsolved.

And if you’re a conspiracy theory fanatic like me, you’ve watched every episode and are rather impatiently waiting for the next. Buzzfeed Unsolved is a segment of Buzzfeed’s channel starring Ryan Bergara and Shane Madej, a hilarious duo that spends each episode delving into unsolved mysteries. In case you haven’t seen an episode of this highly acclaimed show, here are just a few reasons to get started.

The show currently has two complete seasons and just began its third. Each season takes on a different theme, so there is a lot of variety not only episode-to-episode but also season-to-season. The show covers a broad range of topics, from “Buzzfeed Unsolved: True Crime” where they touch on cases like the trial of OJ Simpson and the disappearance of Amelia Earhart, to “Buzzfeed Unsolved: Supernatural”. There truly is something for everyone!

Perhaps one of my favorite components of the show is the dynamic between the cohosts. Shane, a scientific-minded skeptic, counters Ryan, who is a firm believer in everything supernatural. Whether Ryan is relaying an odd theory to their case or sitting alone in a dark room trying to communicate with a ghost, and Shane will never hesitate to jump in and mess with him. The two are constantly bickering and I think that is what makes the show so fun to watch. Anyone can google a conspiracy and read the Wikipedia page, but the banter of Buzzfeed Unsolved gives the show an element that is simply unmatched.

If you’re like me, the conspiracy theories alone should enough of a reason to watch it. Who doesn’t love a good conspiracy theory? The show does a great job of not only relaying the backstory and the facts of the case, but it also ends each show with possible theories behind each one. In the end, Buzzfeed Unsolved has me hooked, and I’m not complaining one bit. And if you haven’t started this show yet, you still have time before Friday, and what better time to start than right before Halloween!

Lil Yachty's 'Lil Boat 2' May Not Be Enough To Keep Him Afloat

Here's what you need to know about "Lil Boat 2."

On March 9, Lil Yachty dropped his newest album, “Lil Boat 2.” The album consists of 17 songs, most of which were probably better off not being on the album and seriously failed to impress me, despite its early success on iTunes.

In all of the reviews I have ever written, I normally organize it song-by-song, giving feedback to each track. This time, however, I think I can save all of us time on this article by just being completely honest about Lil Yachty’s “Lil Boat 2.”

Most of the songs from 1-10 on the tracklist are NOT worth listening to.

Other than those three, every other song from the top ten songs on the tracklist were absolute garbage.

The beats to the songs weren’t that bad but, overall, it just sounded like Lil Yachty and his features were WAY too high to be in the studio.

Yachty’s flows, bars and rhyme schemes were ALL weak throughout the entire album, and if it weren’t for the final six songs on “Lil Boat 2,” this review would be nothing but bashing Lil Yachty.

From the 12th track on the album, "MICKEY" (ft. Offset, Lil Baby) the album runs through much more smoothly, regardless of how basic those last couple of songs are.

I imagine Lil Yachty’s fanbase consists mostly of teenagers who eat Tide for Internet views and anybody who knows nothing about what a real rapper is.

Seriously. I cannot stress how elementary this album is. If you’re looking for new rap music to listen to, check out Tory Lanez’s album, “MEMORIES DON’T DIE,” or Logic’s “Bobby Tarantino II.”

Both of those albums are so much better than “Lil Boat 2” that they make Yachty look like an amateur — which he is.

Final Score: 5.8/10

Did Draco Malfoy Ever Get The Clout He Deserved?

Yes, he was literally the worst for a majority of the series. But does this one moment make up for it all?

The new trailer for the “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” series just dropped and I have a LOT of feelings. Mainly:

With the release of this new trailer, the only natural thing to do is to binge watch the "Harry Potter" series. Now, if you don’t know about "Harry Potter" series, I’m going to assume that you were born literally minutes ago. For those of you who do know what I’m talking about, let’s chat.

Throughout the series, we see some pretty rotten witches, wizards and muggles. The worst being Bellatrix LeStrange, in my opinion.

*Side note: Voldemort killed meticulously and with his own “reasoning” that supported his actions. Bellatrix killed for sport. No reason was necessary to support her choices. Regardless of who I thought was worse, it doesn’t change the fact that they were both 100% assholes.*

Throughout the movie, and even more so throughout the book, we are able to see slight character arcs for a majority of these lesser-evil villains, such as Petunia Dursley, Narcissa Malloy, Snape, and Draco Malfoy.

After Snape, Draco had one of the biggest character arcs in the series. He saved Harry and, ultimately, through his actions, gave Harry one last chance to defeat Voldemort. How? Well, Pottermore explains it best, but to put it simply, he refused to give Harry, Ron, and Hermione up to Bellatrix and the Snatchers.

This moment is so pivotal and apparent in the books, yet on screen, while it’s still a huge moment, it still gets downplayed. The weight of the moment isn’t truly felt and could be taken as more of a mistake on Malfoy’s part. That moment, if not understood correctly, could change many viewers' opinions about Draco's transformation from elitist, bigot, selfish snob to a (slightly) unknowingly ignorant, scared, defeated teen.

Damnit, J.K. Rowling, you’ve done it again. Even after all these years, somehow I still always seem to find something new.

Now let’s talk about how the new movie will allow the Ministry to apparate onto Hogwarts?!
