    12 Angry Men

    ★★★★★

    I can confidently say that this is without a doubt the most important piece of cinema that has ever graced the screen. The themes this film masterfully tackles are issues that the human race has been dealing with throughout our whole existence and unfortunately, the future generations will go through the same issues, it’s just human nature. Hate, uncertainty, discrimination, guilt, regret and many other flaws any human-being could carry, all can be settled with communication, even if those conversations…

    The unforgettable cast and…

    “All the best memories are hers.”

    Story time you all. Bare with me. There was a time that I went to my local Walmart in search of a movie to buy.

    “One minute you're defending the whole galaxy, and, suddenly, you find yourself sucking down darjeeling with Marie Antoinette... and her little sister.“

    The birth of Pixar and it couldn’t have started any better than this film right here. I’m damn near 30 years old and it’s still just as much fun as the first viewing. The culture behind this film resonates in my heart. I remember the toys I had, the iconic characters, Randy Newman’s legendary score that I still…
