    Black Lives Matter.

    The beginning of the Ryan Coogler/Michael B Jordan dream team. The promise and hope of a young mans redemption shattered with a senseless act of police brutality. A powerful drama with a real sad and tear inducing ending. Really liked the personal, almost documentary style to the movie. Still fighting the  same issues today smh.

    “I miss you.. I miss you”

    A beautiful and moving love story. Sweet and melancholy at the same time. Featuring great performances by the legendary Cate Blanchett (seriously when is Cate not divine) and the ever talented Rooney Mara. The wonderful score was the icing on the cake. There has been some great gay love stories in the last few years but this prob my favorite of them all. Loved the colors and classic time period look.  This should have gotten a best picture nomination.

    “FUCK THE SPACE”

    This was pretty heartbreaking. I’ve never been married but I could relate as a kid who saw his parents fight a lot and the threat of divorce around the corner. Maybe something a lot of our generation can relate too. Raw and very human, the writing in this was superb. Scarlett was great but man did Adam Driver kill it. Very excited for his future roles. Great cast overall including Laura Dern and Ray Liotta with fun supporting roles.

    Definitely one of my favorites this year, kind of a modern Kramer vs Kramer which I also recommend watching if you haven’t.

    Wow at loss of words right now. What a powerful portrayal of income inequality which is a theme anyone can relate too no matter where you live. 

    It goes overlooked because it’s so obvious, but it’s crazy the power money has and how it runs everything. Poverty becomes a stench that follows you no matter where you go. This smell you can’t escape. This pursuit to become wealthy so you can provide for your family becomes a burden, almost a heavy rock clinging too you at all times. 

    Bong Joon-Ho’s topical drama is definitely one of the best movies of 2019.
