    Whiplash

    ★★★★★

    I cannot believe I had only rated this a 4.5/5.
    Even with its relatively low budget, Whiplash does not fail to engage its audience through some of the most powerful storytelling I have ever seen.
    The movie is slow-paced but still leaves you wanting more. I made one of my friends watch it with me tonight and he said that, although it's not his kind of film, he enjoyed it so much he wanted it to last longer.
    I've watched…

    The Queen's Gambit

    ★★★★★

    With a stunning cinematography and incredible screenplay, The Queen's Gambit, gives you the opportunity to experience loss, love, challenge, victory and defeat.
    It's refreshing to see such an accurate portrayal of battles with addiction and depression - portrayals which should have been mastered long ago. Still, it was the right amount of a rollercoaster, as recovery tends to be.

    Overall wonderful. Added to my list of favourite shows for sure.

    Yes, it did make me want to play chess.

    I truly appreciate the care and thought put into every element of this movie. It wasn't victimizing the character - in fact, the Joker even took responsibility himself - and showed how much certain experiences in our lives, combined with a few disconnected brain wires, can change our mental health, completely, forever.
    There are two clear messages to me in this movie; 1) mental health care matters a lot, meaning mental illnesses DO exist and MUST be treated by experts…

  • Titanic

    Titanic

    ★★★★½

    Just rewatched this and realised I like it even more than I already did.
    James Cameron not only did an incredible job with his limited 1990's technology, his amazing cinematography and interesting cinematic parallels, but created a masterpiece with no plot holes whatsoever.
    Titanic is a 3 hour sequence that goes by smoothly, thanks to Leonardo DiCaprio's flawless performance and refined screenplay. It is a story that takes its setting to the next level and gets the viewer to experience…
