  • 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

    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


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