    ‪No wonder it’s called ‘Wonder.’ It’s a wonderful story about how every person can be that wonder. It’s heartfelt, uplifting and well-acted. Lots of love to Stephen Chbosky & Jacob Tremblay. ‬

    ★★★★

    Enigmatic and thought-provoking at best, Darren Aronofsky’s mother! transcends the traditional storytelling. It might look like some mystery story, but inside it showcases the writer-director’s belief on parallelism between theocentric views and ecocentric belief.

Edge of Tomorrow has the potential of being this year's sleeper hit.
