    I Feel Pretty

    ★★★★

    I don't care what anyone else says: I saw this movie, I laughed, I empathised, and when she started to act like she thought she was amazing, she WAS amazing and I totally bought the message. And then, ever since seeing the film I have felt amazing and felt like I looked amazing, and I didn't even have to go to a spin class.

    Bad Genius

    ★★★★

    Principally a fascinating insight into how you can cheat at exams, this gloriously over-produced actioner succeeds in making intellectualism as exciting to watch as car chases and explosions. The central actress (Chutimon Chuengcharoensukying) is gorgeous to watch, and her talent makes up for the caricatured silliness of her wealthy counterparts. But mainly, it's a blast in the spirit of "21" (but better) by a filmmaker clearly schooled on Scorsese.

    <3 Love love love. <3

    PATTI CAKE$ is one of those against-the-odds movies where a perfectly-cast protagonist (here, Australian Danielle Macdonald totally owns the screen, whether she's dropping sick rhymes or showing nuanced compassion) has to battle financial, emotional and familial challenges in the pursuit of a dream (to become a successful rapper).

    And while you might feel cynical about a plot like this, frankly you'd have to be a bit of a dick not to love love love Macdonald…
