    Still solid on second view.

    Ford v Ferrari

    ★★★½

    Can't remember the last time I found cars this exciting. Solid film with a good Bale + Damon acting combo.

    It was frustrating however to see it depict the female role in the racing as you would have guessed: nonexistent. The only female character opens her mouth around 5 times over the 2½ hours of screenplay

    ★★★½

    Exactly all high school films you already watched but with a subtle (yet urgent) twist:

    This one has Beanie Feldstein at her best (and most energetic); it is fantastic debut for Olivia Wilde as a director and the question that really makes it worth watching: why are all of highschool stories told from a male perspective again?

    To give it more stars I could only wish some scenes were as much fun as the casting seemed to have whilst making it.

  • The Lion King

    ★★★½

    "Can you feel the love tonight" during daylight got me confused

  • Good Will Hunting

    Good Will Hunting

    ★★★½

    While the story is somewhat predictable, the stellar performance of both Matt Damon and Robin Williams is enough of a reason to watch this film even in 2019.

  • Sully

    ★★★½

    Good film. I'm a big fan of non linear scripts so this one was a fun one to watch. If you know the story, you probably won't be surprised by the plot but it's defo worth watching it. Tom Hanks keeps the level up as usual.
