Stranger Things (2016)

4 Stars (out of 4)

Watched Like a Hawkins

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

Inspired by Stephen King and lots of kid-sci-fi-summer adventure movies (E.T., The Goonies, Explorers, etc.), and filled with references to The Clash and horror movies, The Duffer Brothers's Stranger Things was a triumph of imagination and tingling excitement. Rather than paying slavish tribute to bygone filmmaking, it stepped up to become something fresh and constantly intriguing. In 1983, in the small town of Hawkins, Will Byers (Noah Schnapp) disappears into a mysterious realm called the "Upside Down," while an equally mysterious girl, named "Eleven" (Millie Bobby Brown) appears, sporting telekinetic powers. Will's mother Joyce (Winona Ryder), his older brother Jonathan (Charlie Heaton), and Sheriff Hopper (David Harbour) try to find Will, while D&D nerds Mike (Finn Wolfhard), Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), and Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) try to discover Eleven's secrets. Now in its fourth season, the show keeps introducing great new characters and venturing into fresh directions. It may have been inspired by a certain time, place, and feel, but it has become universal.
