    A dog is a man's best friend!!!!!!!! ❀️

    My love for Dylan O'Brien is endless but the dog was the most precious thing in the entire movie!!!! Though named Boy in the movie, the lead dog's actual name is Hero and I mean... he truly was a hero throughout!

    The dog trainer said that Hero LOVED Dylan! And that she never has seen a stronger bond off screen between a dog and an actor. That alone means Love and Monsters…

    I loved it! ❀️

    Riz Ahmed is amazing in this one and the sound design is so special. The movie progresses in a very slow manner and time isn't well established here but it's still captivating. There is beauty in the stillness, for those who have seen the movie, it will make a lot of sense.

    This is a beautiful movie and a frightening one at that. To let go of something so important.. Riz really embodied that in his…

    Sometimes the scariest thing to do in life is to stay still.

  • I May Destroy You

    I May Destroy You

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    That last episode really showcases the strength, power and sophistication of I May Destroy You. The journey there is just as enjoyable despite it all exploring heavy, emotional and sometimes uncomfortable themes.

    Michaela Coel is amazing here through and through. There are strong supportive characters, Paapa Essiedu for instance and Weuche Opia but it's Coel's show, her spotlight.

    While some of the narrative timelines felt a little messy it's sort of given considering the theme of the series. But again, that final episode.. just wow.

    Netflix made another Hallmark movie.

    PS: Damon Wayans Jr is so charismatic no matter what he's asked to say. And yes, the script is stupid even if the concept is okay.

    Holidate

    β˜…Β½

    A holiday filled movie two days before Halloween? Netflix, you drunk or what?

    Other than that.. I went in with no expectations and was still disappointed. Go figure. Some okay moments here and there, the idea sort of works but it just dragged out so long.

    All the female characters here are so shallow and awful. Every conversation is about relationships, men, looks and sex. Like their entire family dynamic is about her relationship status. WHO THE FUCK CARES!? LET…
