“Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities” episodes ranked: boxd.it/iWpka
This is the seventh episode of “Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities”.
It is definitely the best directed episode so far, but it is definitely not the best story.
I liked how stylish and atmospheric it all was and they presented it so well, while keeping a nice level of mystery and weirdness, but the story was boring. The story didn’t really go anywhere until we got to a weird and slightly disappointing ending. As it has been the case with many of the episodes, it feels like they forced the runtime to be longer, which it really didn’t need to be.
Peter Weller was great and I also think Eric André did a great job in a more serious role, while Sofia Boutella also was enjoyable in her smaller role. The rest of the cast didn’t do much for me and I kinda just dislike Charlene Yi for some reason.
The episode had potential to be something I would love at first, but in the end I merely liked it, which is a shame.
