I saw yesterday one of Jim Carreys greatest movies. Yes man. Its a very interesting funny movie that makes us want more. Each scene and characters are so brilliantly crafted and i wish the movie had a sequel or something. I really wish they made another one. I rate the movie 8 out of 10

The last movie I saw was As Above So Below. It was a decent movie, plenty of jump scares and some supernatural thrills. I’d watch it again and was entertained the whole time. I’d give it 3 stars out of four. It’s definitely not for the faint of heart or anyone who’s opposed to blood and gore.

The last movie I saw was Same Time Next Christmas. It is actually showing on You Tube which had me a bit skeptical at first. However, I love Christmas and Christmas movies so I decided to give it a shot. I must also admit that I am not a fan of Lea Michele and she was the star in the show.

Nevertheless, her being in it did not take away from the storyline. It involved two children meeting on a Christmas vacation in Hawaii. They continue to see each other every Christmas in Hawaii as their families went there every Christmas. They get older and grow apart and years later they meet back up as adults.

I won't spoil the ending by revealing it but let's just say that there were some surprising twists and turns that I did not expect which made it seem that more realistic.

This is truly a nice movie for couples or mothers with their coming of age daughters to look at.

The scenery in the movie was of course beautiful as well. It made me want to just pack my bags and head to Hawaii. If only my borders were open!! :P

I saw Linklater's Before Sunrise trilogy recently, and oh boy, did I fall in love with it. Has anyone else watched it? It's such a good series on human connection.
Which genre does it fall? Have you watched Little Fires Everywhere it also speaks about family connection.

It's the holidays, and I'm a cheeseball for Christmas movies, so I just watched The Princess Switch on Netflix. I would give it an 8 out of 10. It's a predictable Christmas love story but that's why I absolutely LOVE it. These are the kinds of movies that give me a warm, fuzzy feeling and transport me elsewhere!

Any one else have a favorite holiday movie that they like to watch?

The last movie I watched about a month ago is Enola Holmes. Being a huge fan of Milly Bobby Brown who plays the lead role, I enjoyed the movie very much. The movie's plot is not perfect but all other aspects of it make it worth watching. I rate it at 4 out of 5

The last movie I watched was Enola Holmes on Netflix. This movie is a solid 10/10. It doesn't lean to heavily on a feminist theme - not that there's anything wrong with a feminist theme, it was just nice that it didn't focus on it - and it created a really elaborate and unpredictable plot. I just loved how much the fourth wall was broken and as usual Helena Bonham Carter was perfect, and it was really nice to see Millie Bobby Brown out of Stranger Things and into a completely different genre.

"Gladiator" with Russell Crowe. I think the film is excellent but very sad.

The last movie I watched was Citation and it's on Netflix. The movie is based on the all-too-common sexual exploitation of women, especially by men in power and the rape culture societal institutions eschew.

It is about a postgraduate student who accuses her professor, a celebrated intellectual, of attempted rape and finds herself at the brink of being made an outcast and branded as a liar and clout chaser. She sets out to find evidences of his atrocities.

I rate the movie 8/10. The acting is great, music is excellent, pictures are sharp but it's too long. Also, if you're looking to have a glimpse of the rich Nigerian culture, you should watch it.

The most recent movie I saw was Klaus on Netflix! I really loved the animation and thought it was a cute, new take on the origin of Santa Claus, and the ending absolutely had me in tears, but it was lacking in other respects. Personally, I tend to find that Christmas movies fall a little flat since their one goal is to be positive and uplifting. That isn't to say I want all my movies to be doom and gloom, it's just that Christmas movies can turn out rather predictable. I would certainly watch it again though! The animation really was amazing. 8 out of 10! [/b

I recently saw a film called "thoroughbreds" directed by Cory Finley. It followed two girls and their quest to kill the step-dad. It was surprisingly slow for such a great thriller. I would watch it again and rate it a 7/10.
