    School Essay on Water. What mark would you give it? Honestly 

    By watching the movie Water it undoubtedly highlighted the life of different women in India’s society in 1930’s, but with one commonality they all shared which was how their widows married from a young age to their husbands who were three times their age, however, died. With this result these widows are in kept with the tradition of widowhood, where the women are dressed in a white sari, her…

    Don't Breathe

    ★★★★

    This is movie has the unlimited power to captivate it audience from the very beginning to the end credits with such a possessing ease that unshakeable disturbing as this portrayal throughout its scenes. Don't Breathe maybe a low budget film directed by Fede Alvarez however should not come with low expectations by taking a run-of-the-mill concept of a breaking and enter of thieves then flipping it on its head into an objective of getting out with your living along with…

    The Conjuring 2

    ★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    This married ghostbusting and demon banishing couple is back for an encore with a British spin (tbh characters talk about tea a lot) in The Conjuring 2 and almost is as good as the first Conjuring. Sequels are never usually able to top the first movies (exception to Godfather II), but passing this film off would be a mistake. The child actor by the name of Madison Wolfe is brilliant with a "possessing" treasure trove of such talent it is…

    Sing Street

    ★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Sing Street owns some reminisce of an essence that drove a kind of nostalgia into me from Me, Earl, and the Dying Girl because I cannot truly pinpoint it. Maybe it was the vibrate and colorful cinematography scheme that seemed to be a perfected art itself. Also, it may have been as well the story of the central character befriends a girl who is bound to leave them for an already happening vacating in the mix. Or even that the…

  • The 39 Steps

    The 39 Steps

    ★★★★

    The 39 steps kept the audience on the edge of their sits from start to finish, indeed a movie of suspense and just pure fun. When watching this black and white film might be considered bland in the eyes of today's 21st century, but people with actual insight will see this movie for its witty dialogue and magnificent acting throughout with Robert Donat and Madeleine Carroll. Fun Fact: Hitchcock is a passer-by on the road when Hannay and Annabella come…

    ★★★

    Sorry for my hiatus.

    Regardless this film is really good, and I can't even comprehend why I kept this on my watchlist for so long because that is a regret, but this movie for sure isn't a regret whatsoever. If you think Gone Girl is the only film with the "gets rid of the spouse" concept, you are sadly mistake. For the reason of Side Effects is a close runner-up in that category. This movie is smart and clever in…

    Task # 13: A film where characters write each other letters (snail mail, no e-mails)

    I saw this movie in one of my high school class and I have to say this was a dry spell in Sean Connery career as a magnificent actor. The plot was so cringy because the clique was beaten to death with a book (No pun intended) were an old man with a bad attitude teaches a kid within…

    Star Trek

    ★★★★½

    Anton Yelchin, the Russian-born actor who played Chekov in the new Star Trek films, has been killed by his car at his home in Los Angeles. My condolence to the young actor of so much potential and his family.

    Task # 17: A film with an imaginary friend

    When thinking of films about that coined the idea of insomnia and imagery friends which do you say Fight Club or The Machinist? Most of the general public would say Fight Club and have no recollection of the machinist since the released was as followed. Sure the Fight Club movie was a fascinating concept, but you have to appreciate the true grit in the machinist (no pun intended) capturing these feelings throughout as well. Christian Bale acting performance and physique were an unsettling performance in it as its self.

    Task # 29: A film with the word versus (Vs.) in its title

    This movie takes me back to when I was a bit younger reading these comics and watching this movie all those push a tidal wave of feeling back to me. For the reason of it hit on the concepts and ideas on this graphic novel by Canadian cartoonist Bryan Lee O'Malley and didn't actually stray too far, which makes this spectacular…

    Task # 20: A film based on a Stephen King novel

    This film captured the true meaning of cabin fever with crazy outburst literally through the movie keeping the audience never lingering on one scene moment forever. I think this movie is the best depiction of a Steven King book so far from my watching and reading experience. But I noticed a slip up when Marcia calls Buster up and asks if he has…

    Task # 18: A film featuring a dysfunctional family

    This movie has me lost for words no doubt because this is what I consider is the best comedy I had ever seen and impossible for this film to do any wrong. This such a heart melting movie from begin to end where the meaning of a family dysfunction has a new label with the Hoover family. Now preferable I usually enjoy dark comedies( which…
