    ★★★★

    83/100 (Strong)

    Well I finally saw one of the many films that's considered to be some of the greatest of all time.

    Can't say that it's one of the geatest of all time, but I can say that's an interesting one in fact.

    La La Land

    ★★★★★

    Man. 2016 is almost over. Crazy to believe that this year had some of the most interesting choices for the best of the year.

    For example; We had a strange neon and disturbing look at Fashion and beauty, two dudes trying to find the meaning of life in the strangest way possible, satan himself come to haunt the life's of innocent children, an animated film that explores a young boys journey of self discovery, a love story that involves two…
