    Lola

    ★★★★★

    "There's a bit of happiness in simply wanting happiness."

    Lola is an elegant example of French New Wave filmmaking from the early 60s. Anouk Aimée is like a combination of Marilyn Monroe, Cyd Charisse and herself. Lola is kind and sensuous. You just have to leave romantic cinema to the French. Nobody does it better. It's romantic, fun, engaging, sexy and stylish. I don't mean just the stars. That applies to the whole supporting cast, photography and music. Overall, Jacques Demy knows how to make a worthwhile film.

    "I must steer clear of dreary bourgeoisie art, I must be avant-garde and paint what's in my heart."

    The Young Girls of Rochefort is such a wonderful film! A fabulous cast that includes Catherine Deneuve, Françoise Dorléac, Danielle Darrieux, George Chakiris, the one and only Gene Kelly among its stars. It's an uplifting film, Jacques Demy aimed for it to be unrealistic, a fantasy and sometimes watching it's a true tonic for what ails you. Overall, great music, dancing, performances, colorful costumes and scenery will put you in a better mood than you are in especially if you love musicals.

    "Sometimes to love someone, you got to be a stranger."

    Blade Runner 2049 is a faithful sequel to "Blade Runner". It perfectly captures the feel of the original, both visually and musically. The cinematography is a work of art. If you're a "Blade Runner" fan it will be impossible for you to not like this film. Every aspect of the original seems present to a degree, the dark Sci-Fi setting is there, the noir thriller is there, understated dialogue and acting is there, homage to the original is there and Harrison Ford is still there. Overall, it's a excellent sequel to Blade Runner.

    "Here's Johnny!"

    The Shining is a psychological thriller masterpiece. Stanley Kubrick is a master at causing cinematic hysteria and just to think Jack Nicholson is really all alone in the Ballroom scene, creepy... Every time I watch I always find myself getting goosebumps, from start to finish. The Shining is terrifying in a psychological stance. It doesn't jump at you, but it screws with your head as if your going insane with the characters. Overall, everybody has their own theories as to what "The Shining" truly means, but there's no real answer and just as Stanley Kubrick himself said, "Real is good, Interesting is better."
