  • The Edge of Seventeen

    The Edge of Seventeen

    ★★★★

    Pretty accurate albeit dramatic representation of high school life. Liked the Asian love interest (yay). Certainly predictable with archetypal characters, but funny and witty with loads of sarcasm. 4 stars because of the writing and execution.

  • The Salesman

    ★★★★

    Great cinematography. Enjoyed the characters and the drama, which was very realistic and saddening. Solid movie overall.

    Me and Earl and the Dying Girl

    ★★★★

    Solid movie. Nice balance between being tongue-in-cheek, serious, and realistic. Earl was a little stereotypical in terms of how he spoke, and the main character can be too unsympathetic at times. Overall very enjoyable for a movie about cancer.

  • We Need to Talk About Kevin

    We Need to Talk About Kevin

    ★★★½

    Very unsettling. Well shot, good acting. Story was decent. At some points repetitive and slow, lacked a little bit of suspense.
