    It’s December 30th and there’s less than forty-eight hours left before this not-so-pleasant year ends. The sky is cloudy and a little bit gloomy–an indication that rain might occur in the next couple of hours. I’ve watched this film at four in the afternoon and it’s now eight at night; it’s now dark, it didn’t rain, but the wind persisted, and the remnants of the apple I was eating during the film is now brown. I stood up and contemplated,…

    Since it’s the last day of 2020, I’ve been thinking of one film that will complete my year. I’ve thought that maybe rewatching Hamilton (2020) for the nth time would do it or The Shawshank Redemption (1994) to give me an inspiration for the next year to come, but instead I chose Minari (2020). Why, you may ask? I’ve been wondering why I chose this film too. Maybe it’s because I’ve been anticipating this Asian-directed 2020-released film for too long…

    I have always been fascinated with courtroom dramas, as someone who absolutely loves watching people argue all day, and nothing has ever come close with the excellence that Anatomy of a Murder presented–maybe 12 Angry Men, but that’s another beast in it of itself. The premise is simple: a lawyer doing the best of his abilities by taking a murder case; but in reality,…

    When I first watched this film, I was thirteen–a naive little boy captivated by this immensely entertaining three-hour flick. I didn’t really think much of this than a fun family movie about aspirations and dreams, not really minding its implications and what not. Now, I am at a mature-ish age of twenty, currently taking an engineering degree at one of the most renowned universities in my country, and revisiting this film has never been more relevant than ever. I always…

    Nearly lost it when Samuel L. Jackson described Little Women (2019) as four white girls standing on the cusp of Karenhood.

    I finally understood what Taylor Swift meant when she said I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling 22.

    Absolutely hilarious, riveting, and heartwarming. I’ve never laughed and cried so hard on a Pixar film since Inside Out. Will definitely watch it again tomorrow to experience some more jazzing.

    Oh, and Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone!
