    A Clockwork Orange

    ★★★★★

    The screen is a magic medium. It has such power that it can retain interest as it conveys emotions and moods that no other art form can hope to tackle.”
    — Stanley Kubrick
     
    A Clockwork Orange is a vile representation of the vulgar happenings of the real world, and nothing more than an utter masterpiece. Directed by Stanley Kubrick in 1971, the film follows Alex (Malcolm McDowell) and his droogies (another word for ‘friends’ in the Nadsat language, which…

  • Soul

    Soul

    ★★★★½

    Soul is the best Christmas gift that Disney/Pixar could have given to the world. Jamie Foxx is actually great in this. The music is absolutely phenomenal, and the animation is great. Pixar has gone far since Toy Story (1995in terms of animating people. The plot is superb; this is the most beautifully meaningful movie I’ve seen in a while, and certainly one of, if not the most meaningful film by Disney! My only critique is that the beginning is paced…

    Pete Davidson: Alive from New York

    ★★★½

    I’ve never been the biggest fan of Pete Davidson, besides some sketches on Saturday Night Live. That being said, the humor here quite exceeded my expectations! Some jokes were dull, but overall, the comedy was rather effective. Still, watch John Mulaney comedy specials instead; they are hilarious!

    — Sir Charles Chaplin

    Silent films are great; one could argue that they are better than some “talkies.” They can convey the same messages as talkies through physical acting and music, in varying genres: drama, horror, and most commonly, comedy. Of all the silent film stars, there is one which people typically talk about most: Charlie Chaplin, and of all the films made by Chaplin—Silent or otherwise—there…

    BlacKkKlansman

    ★★★★½

    Wow! Spike Lee is such an underrated filmmaker. His movies are powerful protests and statements, disguised as entertainment, and I absolutely adore it! To be honest, the racism in this film made me absolutely sick, to the point that I got quite emotional watching this, especially at the very end. I’m so glad that Spike Lee is spreading awareness for these dire things by making films about it!

  • First Man

    First Man

    ★★★★★

    I don't know what space exploration will uncover, but I don't think it'll be exploration just for the sake of exploration. I think it'll be more the fact that it allows us to see things. That maybe we should have seen a long time ago. But just haven't been able to until now.”

    First Man is out of this world... get it?! This film has been on my watchlist since I first watched Whiplash (2014), seeing as though both were directed by…
