    Review In A Nutshell:

    I am not going to lie, His Girl Friday is a rapid-fire blast of entertainment. To see its characters loop themselves in these chaotic circumstances and their eventual schemes of emerging out of them brought forth a great feeling of excitement; a quality that attributes to my current score. However, if I peel beyond the layers, what we are treated with is a narrative of a woman who has escaped…

    We Need to Talk About Kevin

    ★★½

    Review In A Nutshell:

    We Need to Talk About Kevin throughout left me extremely frustrated; it has a strong premise and the performances brought by the cast are beyond excellent, but the film's emotional pile up of unsympathetic hate towards its titular subject was simply exhausting.

    The film doesn't seem to have any solid purpose towards the relationship between Kevin and his mother, Eva; leaving the audience with scenes that executes its emotions perfectly, but left with a blank canvas…
