    I'm like a lot of people, which makes me kind of no one.

    If this is one of the better Netflix teen romantic comedies, I dread to think of what those other films are like (I'm looking at you The Kissing Booth). Alice Wu's The Half of It gets off to a good start, with a quirky style and fun, though not at all original, premise.

    However, as the film goes on it slips back into the usual…

It's overall message still holds up today and Sturges ironically managed to make a film that is both hilarious and important.

Although what I will say is that this absolutely deserves all of its praise, and how Orson Welles managed to achieve this…

    CLASSICS MONTH DAY 26

    I was shocked and appalled when I found out that Rebecca was Hitchcock's only film to win Best Picture. However, as Hitchcock's first Hollywood film, the mixture of impressive production values and the way he creates the eerie, suspenseful atmosphere does give it a certain edge over some of his earlier work. Lawrence Olivier and Joan Fontaine are perfectly cast and give make or break performances as Maxim De Winter and his new wife,…
