    Bridget Jones's Diary

    ★★★½

    As my never-ending journey to fulfill my female duty of watching every classic chick flick comes this iconic millennial favorite.
    Bridget Jones's Diary takes what could be a stereotypical romance story but spruces it up with intelligent yet down-to-earth dialogue, relatable characters and situations, and an even more relatable main character who gets herself into very familiar situations that define awkwardness at its peak in the millennial generation.

    Short Term 12

    ★★★★★

    Little did this underrated indie know that Brie Larson would land her Oscar-winning role in Room because of this movie.
    Short Term 12 is by far the most underrated indie of the decade so far. Everything felt so real and raw in this film. It is as if the viewer were in the Short Term 12 house with these teens and workers experiencing all of the laughs, tears, and tantrums first hand. Nothing in this movie is glossed or frilled…
