    I turned 30 today.

    And like any milestone, it got me thinking. A lot of good happened to me in my 20s, I've been lucky. I do have a couple of big regrets, but what you gonna do? On the whole, I have a lot to be grateful for.

    One thing I am definitely grateful for is that this fucking movie exists. I just wanted to see something really close to my heart, and this is exactly that. I waited…

    But where's his outrage?!

    The truth of the matter is just because of my gender, I (and a majority of men) can go through life without having the fear and possibility of rape or sexual assault. On the flip side, this is a constant reality that women have to live with. And the skewed proportionality of this crime just about makes it all the more dangerous and frustrating, because it's different to think of something in abstract and on the…

    ★★

    Good performances from everyone involved, especially Idris Elba who hasn't exactly lit up the screen as I would have hoped he would post-Wire, even though he has been in some really high profile movies (from MCU to Fast to Star Trek to DCEU). The one entry I can point out to that was a stand-out in his post-Wire career is Beasts of No Nation.

    Story-wise I felt this was a bit formulaic: a troubled child connecting with an estranged parent.…

    Why do I develop crushes like it's popping in fucking MnMs?

    This is not about Molly Gordon. Or Polly Draper (that voice). Or Rachel Sennott.

    A fun, chaotic comedy in the vein of Death at a Funeral. Worth checking out.

    Dane DeHaan. This kid has a bright future, if he keeps making good choices. I didn't think anything could make me want to see The Amazing Spider Man 2, but now I am looking forward to it due to DeHaan's presence.

    Anywho, he is not the only star of the movie. A rendition of the origins of Beat Era, this has a who's who of literary names: Allen Ginsberg (who takes the centre stage here with a tremendous performance from…

    ★★★½

    I am gonna be honest. I didn't have high expectations from this movie. I thought this would be a weepy, sentimental and sappy drama, with a couple of strong performances. Not my cup of tea. Instead, it turned out to be a thoughtful, emotional, if somewhat a little weepy, but highly touchy dramedy, with two performances that definitely elevate this based-on-facts story. 

    Judi Dench is really, really good. And Steve Coogan is having the best year of his career, with…
