Review: First Wives Club (1996)

First Wives Club is the kind of film that lifts your spirits and is good to watch in between viewing dramatic, heavy movies. Sometimes, you just need to to watch a trio of A-list actresses engage in hilarious, ridiculous shenanigans, even if the execution isn’t perfect. 

Review: A Fantastic Woman (2017)

A Fantastic Woman is not the perfect film that people have made it out to be, but considering that it is the first Oscar-winning foreign/international film featuring a transgender character — whose star, Daniela Vega, became the first transgender presenter in Oscars history — its impact is impressive.

Review: The Personal History of David Copperfield (2020)

The Personal History of David Copperfield is probably unlike any other period piece you’ve seen before. For one, there’s color-blind casting, which could cause serious eyerolls from racists and other folks who may claim to be non-racist but prefer more “traditional” (i.e. white) casting in order for the stories to be more historically accurate. But, I believe all-white casting to be boring and not with the times.

Review: Always Be My Maybe (2019)

Always Be My Maybe may, in some respects, be considered a standard romantic comedy — especially with its numerous predictable elements and stereotypically terrible significant others — but it finds enough ways to keep the genre fresh and interesting without seeming to cater to anyone in particular.

Review: The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999)

I came across this Oscar-nominated film while browsing Netflix for something intriguing, thriller-like to watch while self-quarantining at home. If you’ve seen some of my other reviews, you’ve probably noticed that I’ve been drawn to horror and similar films, perhaps just because I’ve been in the mood and have a newfound appreciation for them. While Anthony Minghella’s star-studded film is more of a mystery/thriller than a horror film, it contains some horrifying and creepy elements that are often found in horror genre flicks.
