  • The Last Samurai

    The Last Samurai

    ★★★★

    The Last Samurai is a beautiful historical war drama that does such a great job at capturing the beauty of another culture. This movie also has a great score, good acting, compelling characters, thrilling action scenes and a wonderful message about honor. 

    The film is also very emotional. I won’t spoil what happens but I definitely had something in my eyes near the end and I can’t think of a lot of movies that have made me feel emotional.

    I don’t understand why this movie is so overlooked because it’s just good. It’s definitely a movie that deserves far more credit than what it’s given.

  • Crawl

    Crawl

    ★★★★

    Throughout the years we’ve been given many shark movies but barley any alligator movies. I’m happy to say that we’ve been given a great one. With great performances from the two leads, good CGI, intense thrills and impressive atmosphere, Crawl is a very fun creature feature. Plus I really like that they decided to have the alligators just be regular alligators, instead of being mutated or scientifically altered in some way. All these positives make this one of the most surprisingly good movies of 2019 so far.

  • The Shallows

    The Shallows

    ★★★★

    After years of getting films like Mega Shark vs Giant Whatever Monster and Sharknado 57, it’s nice to finally get a shark movie that is actually taken seriously. Blake Lively looks great in this film but she’s more than just eye candy. She gives a great performance and her character is very interesting and likable. The thrills are also great and the cinematography is wonderful. All this and more makes The Shallows the best shark movie since Jaws.
