I have never felt the warmth of another person. Starting to watch movies instead of doing schoolwork.

    One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

    ★★★½

    I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW DANNY DEVITO WAS IN THIS MOVIE. Yet, I am glad that was kept a secret from me.
    Anyways, I just finished reading the book after watching it. And although the movie is rather shallow in highlighting the character development and symbolic nature of the book. Although, it is still a great movie.

  • Children Underground

    Children Underground

    ★★★

    Whenever I feel depressed, I watch this film. It is truly saddening and heartbreaking. It may seem counterintuitive to watch it when I am in a bad mood, but "Children Underground" makes me feel very lucky about my living conditions. Many of us are so lucky and we do not even know it.

    Children Underground is a heart-breaking documentary I have seen in a while. It illustrates the devastating effects of war, the breakdown of the Soviet bloc, and the rampant drug abuse through the eyes of street children.

    Who Killed Captain Alex?

    I am not trying to be ironic. But I genuinely enjoyed this movie. The director, Isaac Godfrey Geoffrey Nabwana never expected this movie to reach the masses. Its intentions were to truly entertain people in his village, and bring joy to so many people struggling. Pure intentions, without the consumerism-driven ulterior motives of Hollywood. I hope for the best for everyone involved in this movie.

    American Murder: The Family Next Door

    This film seems rather exploitative. It doesn’t seem to be in good taste. Although I do find True Crime documentaries interesting, something does not sit right with me.

    I wish they delved further into the psychology of Chris Watts. And the actual annihilation of his family. He had what many people wish they had. A good job, a loving family, and security. Yet his ability to throw it away so callously horrifies me.
