    Never have I felt so much during a movie. Yes, it is a weird phrase, but that's exactly what I mean. For the whole time while watching it, I was feeling something. It was SO cathartic at every single second, I just wish it never ended truly. I've said that about some movies, but I've never meant it so much. It must've been really fun to shoot this film and I just wish I could meet not only the cast…

    Task 19.
    Watch a movie featuring costume design by Ruth E. Carter or production design by Hannah Beachler.
    Maaaaan, this movie is crazy. It really is. Thought the beginning was a little bit slow, but when I reached the end, I understood it was all part of the process. Just slowly escalating until it left me completely without reaction in the last 20 or 30 minutes. I simply couldn't move. Just imagine this movie not being nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars when Driving Miss Daisy won that year. An unforgivable crime, really.

    Task 13:
    A non-musical film that features a dance number
    It's not easy for me to find comedy movies that I like, but this is a perfect example of a film that fully works for me. It made me really laugh out loud a lot of times. It even made me cry. Yes, I am super emotional, but it's really impossible for me not to relate to Frances when she says goodbye to her parents after…

    Task 6: A film with a primarily orange poster.
    Well, in a similar process to what occured when I watched Dr. Strangelove, I felt a little pressured to like a Hitchcock film. And though this wasn't enough for me to love him, I now, at least, can see more of the genius everyone talks about. I wasn't going to give it a good rating, but it really turned my head upside down between the middle and the end of the movie. Even though I don't like the ending very much, it's still a spectacular movie.
