    Marriage Story

    ★★★★½

    Adam Driver or Leo should have won the Oscar for Best Actor last year. Incredible script that is brought to life with the phenomenal cast, Randy Newman’s score, and Noah Baumbach’s artistic vision of two married people trying to navigate through a difficult divorce with their young son.

    ★★★★½

    All aboard ‘Da 5 Bloods’ hype train! Best picture of the year so far and Delroy Lindo has to be a lock for best performance of the year. 

    Spike Lee is a genius who continues to capture the open wounds of black people that have been left untreated for decades. 

    This movie is at its heart about a group of friends on an adventure, but below the surface lies gold and generations of pain that rise to the surface during…
