    This Is Spinal Tap

    ★★★★

    It’s humorous when you recognize that in between the 34 years that had occurred after This Is Spinal Taps’s release, nobody would’ve been able to predict that a good 90% of today’s music would make Spinal Taps’s fictional discography look like Led Zeppelin’s authentic discography. I’m rooting for a This Is Spinal Tap spinoff where we look into the lives of most Pop/Rap/EDM/ Alternative artists today.

Just the commitment and passion that the filmmakers, crew, and cast have devoted into this entry especially when it comes to the action concepts and sequences—which are rightly accomplished stylishly—are…

    Eighth Grade

    ★★★★½

    HIGH ANXIETY!!! I got HIGH ANXIETY watching Eighth Grade! This was too intensely relatable to my own eighth grade experience—which shockingly was only four years ago! Bo Burnham's artistic direction is presented with a surprisingly—considering this is his directorial debut—mature and realistic approach which will greatly be cherished among cinema-dorks like myself. The accuracy of the film's subject matter is so viciously on point that it's hard not to feel a special/personal connection with the film's presented story. An unexpectedly…
