Everything We Loved About Stranger Things 2
After 15 months of anticipation, here's our first impressions and things we loved about Stranger Things 2.
1. Even more and better 80's music.
The Stranger Things 2 soundtrack features music to cater to all tastes. There's a selection of pop, rock, punk and synth tracks.
Artists include everyone from Cyndi Lauper to The Clash, Duran Duran to Motely Crue and Ray Parker Jr creator of the Ghostbusters theme, to Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton.
There's even a personal favorite and slightly more obscure track in the first episode called Just Another Day by Oingo Boingo. The group were famous for a number of hits in the 80's including Weird Science and No One Lives Forever.
2. Top 80's icon Winona Ryder
Casting 80's pop icon for the show was an inspired choice and massive draw card for Stranger Things. Ryder's transition from the young, trendy pop ingenue of the 80's, to playing an offbeat “mom” role, is testimony to her extraordinary acting ability.
The intensity that Ryder gives her work is the reason we're captivated watching her and why we empathize with Joyce's journey. Ryder puts her heart and soul into her performance. While Joyce is neurotic, she doesn't care what others think. Despite her anxious nature, she's a committed mom, a lioness protecting her cubs regardless of the cost. She'll sacrifice herself and she will make the tough calls when others can't.
