Netflix lanzó los primeros siete episodios de la serie insignia de la cuarta temporada, Stranger Things, hace un mes. La recepción fue abrumadoramente positiva. Los hermanos Duffer y su equipo de directores pudieron lograr algo que no es posible para muchos programas de televisión, incluso en la Edad de Oro del Streaming. Era ofrecer una experiencia televisiva de calidad cinematográfica. La producción fue excepcional en todos los aspectos. Los episodios del Volumen 2 traen más de eso.

El final de la temporada no es lo que esperábamos. No es un mal final, ni mucho menos. Pero eleva las apuestas más alto que nunca. Era difícil imaginar cómo Stranger Things se superaría o superaría a sí mismo en la quinta y última temporada de la temporada 4. Lo han conseguido con dos episodios que concluyen la temporada de una manera increíble. No lo tendríamos de otra manera. Los dos episodios suman cuatro horas de épica. Things Temporada 4 Parte 2 Revisión por IGN

Los episodios 8 y 9, titulados “Papa” o “The Piggyback”, respectivamente, son todo lo que los fanáticos de Stranger Things han esperado en un final de temporada. El episodio 7 de las revelaciones del Volumen 1 básicamente explota en las caras de nuestros héroes. Aunque las consecuencias son difíciles de comprender, se pueden sentir en las emociones. Estos episodios son un gran ejemplo de cómo se puede crear tensión. Te reirás, llorarás y, lo más importante, te morderás las uñas durante las cuatro horas completas.

Ambos episodios están dirigidos y escritos por los hermanos Duffer. Los cineastas quieren que sientas algo cuando veas a los personajes que amas y que arriesgan sus vidas por salvar a su ciudad y a sus amigos. Así es como se crean los héroes materiales, y los espectadores recordarán el heroísmo de esta película mucho después de que rueden los créditos.

It’s an impressive cast. As in previous episodes, Millie Bobby Brown & Sadie Sink continue to steal the show. The resolution of their stories clashes is meaningful and powerful. It was the right ending for these characters. While some people might argue that it was, the two actresses know exactly how to press the right buttons to cause anxiety and pain in the throat.

These episodes will reward those characters who felt a little behind in the first seven episodes. Caleb McLaughlin plays Lucas. In the first episodes, his character was a sideliner. But here, it shines brightly. It can actually be proved that Max, the character closest to Sadie Sink, shines even more in these last episodes.

Technically, the second volume is as impressive as the original. The series has really raised the bar for TV shows in terms of visual quality. The sets and visual effects are amazing. Episode 9’s final sequence is one of the best TV shows of the last decade. They are among the most respected directors in the business. The offers will pour in once the show is over.

There is one thing that I have to say about volume 2 and the entire season, and it is that Hopper’s storyline was not as consistent with the other characters’. Although it is a solid storyline and serves a purpose it feels like it was an unnecessary detour to fix something that should have occurred at the end. Although the writers are able to combine the two stories into one, this one feels too disconnected, even though they try to link it with the others.

Yes, there are some characters who die. But others are left in a situation that could change their lives forever. This ending is very apocalyptic and if done right could make the next season one of the most important in streaming history. It is our hope that The Duffer Brothers, their team, and their crew can make it to the landing. However, so far, there is little doubt about that.

Michael Stein and Kyle Dixon are the show’s composers. Music has been an integral part of the show since its inception. The music helps to set the story at a specific time. Season 4 was a season where the music was used for more than just that. It is this reason that the season feels so big. It is epic and bombastic and knows when to play the strings to make the audience cheer and cry. It’s amazing.

Stranger Things season 4 ended with a bang. This opens up a lot of possibilities for season 5. It is still unknown how the season will end and what it will look like. If Netflix gives the Duffer Brothers the same amount, they will be able to realize their vision. This will make for a truly amazing end to a show which has changed how we view television.


Season 4 of "Stranger Things" finally gives us a villain, not just a monster

The battle between good and bad has been a constant theme in Stranger Things. The Netflix series draws inspiration from many references and allusions such as Star Wars, Lord of the Rings and Marvel Comics. Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) is a superhero who fights the evil creatures of the Upside Down that seek to invade our world and take over. While Dr. Michael Brenner ( MichaelModine), his laboratory and a covert team of Russian scientists have trained Eleven to become super-powered, psychic assassins as part a secret government program, it is Eleven’s new friends and family that keep her on the right side.

 Eleven is surrounded by friends such as Mike (Finn Wolfhard), Dustin(Gaten Matarazzo), Lucas, Will (Noah Schnapp), Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin), Will [Noah Schnapp], and Max (Sadie Sink), along with her adoptive father Jim Hopper and mother Joyce Byers. Eleven has never found an equal on this dark side before — until now. Stranger things Season 4 gives Eleven the chance to be a true supervillain. Not in some faceless monster of the Upside Down but in Jamie Campbell Bower’s Vecna, Dr. Brenner’s first child experiment, and a dark reflection on what Eleven could have become.

Season 4 of "Stranger Things" finally gives us a villain, not just a monster

In previous seasons of Stranger Things the main antagonists were faceless monsters who tried to make their way from the Upside Down to Hawkins. The Demogorgon was present in Season 1. It wreaked havoc upon the town and took the lives of innocent citizens like Barbara Holland ( Shannon Purser). His corpse is still found in the Upside Down swimming pool. Season 4 Volume 1 would see the Demogorgon make a brief return when Hopper and his Russian friend Enzo ( Tom Wlaschiha ) are forced to confront it in a prison using fire, which is its weakness. The Demogorgon has been identified as one of the lesser creatures in the Upside Down since Season 1. 

The Demogorgon is revealed to have originated as a slug in Season 2. Dustin learned this from Dart, his pet Dart. Before becoming fully-fledged Demogorgons, the slugs would evolve into “Demodogs”. All of the creatures from the Upside Down have a connection to the Mind Flayer, the “hive mind”. It towers above the Upside Down, and uses its psychic connections with other creatures to use people as parasites in this world. Max’s brother Max Hargrove ( Dacre Mont) is eventually killed by one of these parasites to save Eleven and her crew in order to keep the Mind Flayer alive in the Upside Down.

The monsters of the Upside Down, from the Mind Flayer to the Demogorgon, have played their part as threats to Hawkins’ and its citizens. These monsters, however, have never been able to stake such personal claims in their quest for dominance over the world. Although Billy raises the emotional and personal stakes of the series, Max’s death in Season 4 will affect Max, the Mind Flayer is still an imposing, missing figure in the Upside Down. Stranger Things had to do more than just alien-like monsters to raise the stakes this season.Image via Netflix

Season 4 of "Stranger Things" finally gives us a villain, not just a monster

Vecna is a humanoid creature that hails from the Upside Down and uses his psychic abilities to torture the minds of Hawkins teenagers. This is a tribute to A Nightmare on Elm Street, whose Freddy Krueger, Robert Englund, actually appears in a cameo. Vecna targets his victims through past traumas. Chrissy Cunningham (Grace Van Dien), Fred Benson (Logan Riley Bruner), suffers from bulimia because of her mother’s criticisms, Patrick McKinney, Myles Truitt) has an abusive dad, and Fred Benson (Logan Riley Bruner). Max is later one of Vecna’s victims. However, Max is saved by her friends and Kate Bush. Vecna also has his own traumas. He is not just another Mind Flayer creature, but a person with a history.

Vecna, the supervillain, is Eleven, the hero of Stranger Things. In classic comic book fashion, their origins and explorations are intertwined by Season 1, Volume 1. It’s reminiscent of Dr. Manhattan’s origins in WatchmenPhilip Glass” “Pruit Igoe,” plays as Vecna recounts his traumatizing childhood under Victor Creel. His family referred to Vecna as Henry Creel because he was different and difficult. He was an isolated, lonely child who found solace in spiders. He was a skilled hunter and used his powers to kill animals in the yard. Henry was the one to blame for his parents’ belief in the curse of Hawkins. Henry, fed up, killed his family, but Victor was spared, and he would be sent to prison for the murder of his Creel family. Dr. Brenner takes Henry in as a subject for his experiments. He is One, the first super-powered child that “Papa” raised. But as Henry grows older, Dr. Brenner adds Eleven to his program. This causes him to take on a more mundane role as a worker.Image via Netflix

From his first scene, Bower gives us the creepy but human portrayal of Eleven’s lab worker, who only befriends her to betray. He convinces Eleven to use her trauma and anger memories to fuel her powers and then manipulates her into his final plan to kill the Hawkins Lab children. Henry is sent through a portal to the Upside Down by Eleven, after she discovers that Eleven has been tricked. His body is transformed into the horrifying Vecna. This is the villain backstory Bower was not allowed to explore in his early years as a Gellert Grindelwald and Fantastic Beasts films, where he only appeared in short scenes.

Season 4 of "Stranger Things" finally gives us a villain, not just a monster

Stranger Things presents a new villain. Bower’s Vecna explores a more complex villain than any of the other monsters. Vecna, from his traumatizing childhood as Henry Creel through the horrific experiments he endured as One and then to his position as the Mind Flayer’s top general is the perfect villain for Eleven to face. While the Demogorgon in all its forms is still terrifying, Vecna can be a nightmare fuel. It’s the perfect song to get you up.

Review of Season 4 Volume 2: The End is the Beginning

It was difficult to predict how the Duffer Brothers would resolve the most pressing questions when Stranger Things Season 4 dropped its last two episodes on Netflix on May 27th. The conclusion of Chapter Seven: The Massacre At Hawkins Lab provided the context Eleven ( Millie Bobby Brown), and the truth about this season’s Big Bad, known as Vecna ( Jamie Campbell Bower). Although it seemed impossible to tie the main villain to every piece of the story, especially since our main cast of characters was split between three locations this season, the end result ties Eleven and Hawkins almost inextricably. With “Chapter Eight, Papa” and “Chapter 9: The Piggyback” ending, another question arises: Will Eleven save this once-quiet Indiana village or be part of its demise?

Even though Vecna and his backstory are known to most characters by Episode 8, that doesn’t mean the creature or the threat he poses Hawkins or the rest the world — if he is able to execute his plan — are less frightening. This is in large part due to the realization that it is Bower performing under the amazing visual effects makeup by Barrie and his team. The end result is a character whose mind has been twisted by the Upside Down lifestyle, as well as the person he blames. Vecna adds a human element to the Upside Down’s creatures, and a dark parallel for Eleven and her abilities.

He’s well aware of who he could be, but for the friendships and family he made with Chief Hopper ( David Harbour). There are more truths about Vecna than that. They unravel over Season 4’s final episodes. These revelations cast a new light on the events of the previous three seasons. These reveals are enough to convince me that the Duffers had planned for these larger story arcs. Eleven’s adventure seems to be connected in a way that speaks volumes about careful plot planning.

Review of Season 4 Volume 2: The End is the Beginning

All of this is possible without moving all the chess pieces around on the board. And with only two episodes to guide our main cast, now that they are scattered to all four winds, those super-long runs start to make sense. Although I am not certain Episode 9 could have been split into two episodes as it is almost two-and a half hours of television, it was difficult to find a spot that would have served to sustain momentum. Vecna’s threat must be addressed before any grand reunion can happen. Eleven decides that she will take the match between the two to another plane. This solves the distance problem and creates some great visual elements as Eleven and her Hawkins friends plot to get at Vecna.Image via Netflix

The two-part finale shows that even the best-laid plans can go wrong when a group of misfit high school students are involved with supernatural threats from the Upside Down. Although there are losses, they are predictable and not as terrible as some have suggested online. This is because they are more a result of character development than an attempt to shock the viewer. None of the deaths you see in Season 4 will surprise anyone who has been paying attention. This brings me to a thought that I had while watching these long episodes. It is that Stranger Things‘ next episode (release date TBD), will have to increase its stakes. It will also be the finale of the show. Certain characters only have so many chances to escape death before it becomes a plot contrivance and not a decision that makes the most sense in terms of narrative resolution.

It is a testament to the show’s strengths and the cast that Season 4 can still offer moments of hope and poignancy despite the greater circumstances that could very well signal the end. These final episodes showcase some amazing performances. Noah Schnapp delivers particularly well in two scenes that show how far he has come as an actor. Their presence at the finale makes it seem like Will would have preferred these interactions to occur sooner. However, the scene where Will’s story ends by teases Season 5 will allow his character to complete his adventure, not only with his closest friends but also with the supernatural happenings in his hometown.

Cuando Stranger Things se emitió por primera vez en 2016, nadie podría haber previsto la magnitud en la que sería un gran éxito en la cultura pop.
