    Hunt for the Wilderpeople

    ★★★★½

    Hunt for the Wilderpeople is impossible not to like. One of Taika Waititi's lesser known films and just like his more recent hits it does not disappoint. This movie is what I feel like spending a day in Taika's brain must feels like.

    The Social Network

    ★★★★★

In what is already a compelling and amazing story about the rise of Facebook, how the characters explain to one another what is happening is what made me take a step back. This movie has a lot of fluid cuts between the…
