    North Terminal

    ★★★

    Terminal Norte (2021). A celebration of artistic solidarity, rhythmic resistance, and melodic protests. Music ties people together, and it can be a vehicle of counterculture: to be defiant and perceptive. Short but needed more insight, honestly.

    Floating Elegance

    Including beautiful scene staging, an exquisite tonal palette, and an incredible cast of characters, director Ozu’s work is fashioned from vibrant grace and dramatic serenity. Floating Weeds (1959) is as masterfully shot paragon of Japanese cinema as it is narratively engaging in moments of humour, melancholy, and both. Let the wind carries our journey.

    Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts

    crying laughing over that moment when the trio were asked to write an essay about their character: Emma wrote about 12 pages, Dan wrote about half an A4 paper, then there's Rupert with nothing because he believed Ron wouldn't actually do it either.

    what a great time to be kids.

    Do the Right Thing

    ★★★★½

    “It is hot as blazes.”

    Under the boiling heat of the sun in one summertime, there’s a stream of boisterous noise of sexual and racial tension around the neighborhood for disparate demographic groups in a Brooklyn street. Do the Right Thing (1989) is very much a vigorous film in an unapologetically defiant kind of way, whose commentary on sociopolitical issues and usage of hip-hop music resonate so loudly that it is hard to ignore. Spike Lee wasn’t being aggressively angry when he wrote, directed, and starred in Do the Right Thing; he was simply protesting—and he did it so artistically.
