    Capernaum

    ★★★★

    This was a very hard movie to watch. When it comes to the suffering of children, it’s particularly hard to just sit there and take it, especially if there’s nothing you can do about it. The events portrayed in Capernaum manage to get the point of the movie across successfully, expressing that you shouldn’t bring children into the world if you can’t give them the dignity they deserve. It’s not as black and white as it sounds, but it’s definitely…

  • Green Book

    Green Book

    ★★★

    While it makes for an enjoyable watch, Green Book is completely inept in making a socially relevant film. It’s not a bad movie, it just feels antiquated and out of place in late 2010s.

    ★★★★

    I love watching documentaries about extraordinary people. While Free Solo focuses on the general idea of free soloing and on how incredible Alex Honnold’s life is, it’s also an ode to human determination and the extents we are willing to go to better ourselves. It’s inspiring to say the least.

    School of Rock

    ★★★★½

    This is one of the most rewatchable movies ever made. There’s so many things I still need to watch, and yet I’ve been revisiting School of Rock as if it was the only good movie ever made. This is far from a transcendent masterpiece (it’s not even Richard Linklater’s best movie), but it certainly is memorable. This is a movie I grew up with, and till this date, it feels as fresh as it did when I first saw it. To put it in simplest terms, if you ever just want to watch a fun movie, School of Rock is always a great choice.
