    Koko: A Talking Gorilla

    ★★★★½

    Film Lads Discord Weekly Film Club #9

    I'm not that into documentaries, but I ended up enjoying this way more than anticipated. I loved the simplicity of it all. Hanging out with Koko and learning how her mind works was enough to keep me hooked.

Leaves the viewer with a lot of interesting questions they can ponder about, some of those questions harder to answer than others.

    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    ★★★★

    This may be an odd thing to say considering this movie has such a high rating on this website, but I feel a bit biased when it comes to how much I enjoyed Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. I say biased because this movie is far from flawless yet I enjoyed it so much because Spider-Man has been my favorite superhero ever since I was a little kid (I know many other people love him too I am not special in…
