I stayed up last night watching the 1995 film Clueless. It is not exactly a classic, but I believe that the motifs you can take from this movie will hold true for a long time. Clueless was filmed in the age before laptops or smartphones, but because 1995’s technology wasn’t the movie’s main focus, this shouldn’t be a reason you decide against watching it . Before I begin my review, yes, Clueless is available on Netflix. Continue reading “Movie Review: Clueless”
A few days ago, I finished reading Anna and the French Kiss, by Stephanie Perkins. It took me only a week to finish this book—it kept me on my toes. This book became my guilty pleasure. I’d think about reading it when I had a moment off during class and I felt empty when I’d forget to put it in my bag. It made me scream, plead and cry—just like any modern TV Drama would do.

Recently I watched a 1985 Classic: the Breakfast Club. I did not know much about the plot of this movie but I’ve heard from many independent sources that it’s a wonderful story that I just had to see.

I saw this movie the day after its release date: on July 28th,2016. In short: it was an awesome film. After seeing the trailers, I expected a lot more romance. But this is no love story. Luckily, there is so much action and drama within the film. Everything surrounding Vee (played by Emma Roberts) seems to be falling apart all at different times—so there is never a dull moment. If you have never seen a trailer, Nerve is a game where people sign up to play and make money from dares, or to watch the players and pay a fee. The intent of the game is to get the most watchers (comparable to instagram followers) and to lose you either fail to complete a dare or you refuse to do it. Continue reading “Movie Review: Nerve”
I wasn’t expecting that the first movie I reviewed on this blog would be a PG movie, but it just so happens that on July 13th my aunt took my cousins (ages 6 and 9) and I to see this flick. I want to start by saying that prior to seeing this movie in the theatre, the only commercial I had seen for this movie was a 15 second ad that, about a moth ago, would play before every single video in my music playlist on YouTube. This means that I had little-to-no prior knowledge of the plot of this movie. When I walked in the theatre to see this movie I did not expect to enjoy the movie I was about to see as much as I did.
