    The Farewell

    ★★★★★

    As an Asian immigrant, this film touched my heart and reminded me of not only life back home but the struggles of not being able to see your family as often as you’d like.

Asian or not, this is a must see film about family, love and culture. Please go see it.

    Okay so...A Simple Favor is something else. It was so nice and smooth in the beginning and suddenly I was being thrown out of my seat with all the twists (they weren’t that dramatic but honestly there were some moments where I didn’t know what was happening then I understood and once I did ANOTHER TWIST). I had such a great time with this film and Blake Lively, Anna Kendrick and Henry Golding F*CK ME UP. That’s all.

    This documentary about bullying is one of the best out there. Not only does it focus on the person being bullied but also on the one doing the bullying.

This movie needs to recognized by many people because it captures the essence of how bullying affects a lot of people.
