    I had to see this film twice to clear out my doubts and properly review it. 

    Here’s my review:

    ‘Lady Bird’ is a gem. Definitely my favorite high school film. Period. 

    I have not a single flaw to pick on, I have only praise. 

    ‘Lady Bird’ is a coming of age story about Christine ‘Lady Bird’ McPherson, played beautifully by Saoirse Ronan, who’s trying to get through high school, first loves, and familial relationships.

    A film like this could easily…

  • Padmaavat



    A perfect example of mediocrity. 

    ‘Padmaavat’ hits some high notes and some that fall flat. 

    Firstly, let’s look at all the positive aspects of the film.

    The production design, costumes, makeup and hairstyling are…

    Logan Lucky is a film I might not reccomend to anyone.

    It starts off a little bit slow but recovers its pacing at the 1 hour mark.

    All the performances are pretty good. Daniel Craig and Adam Driver are at their best here. Channing Tatum and Riley Keough also delivers good performances. 

    The soundtrack is okay. It’s not bad but it’s not anything special. 

    The script is good. Lots of lighthearted quirky moments. 

    In terms of storytelling, nothing stands out.…
