Have You Seen ‘The Descendants’?

Let me tell you about a movie that I watched earlier this week. It’s an Oscar-winning film called The Descendants and it is SOOO GOOD! I’m not going to say much about the film because it was so magnificent but I will say this, it is a must-watch.

With impeccable writing, acting, and directing, this Best-Picture nominated film from 2011 is a hidden gem that is currently available on HBO Max.

I cried, I laughed so many times, I gasped, there were so many great and memorable moments, and yeah, it was just really fun to watch. 5/5 stars

Go ahead and do yourself a favor. Please watch this movie!

Movie Review Flashback: ‘Gravity’ Is Overrated

I love science-fiction films. There’s something so wildly imaginative of stories set within the science-fiction genre. My love for sci-fi films especially grew after I saw Interstellar for the first time four years ago in IMAX. It was honestly one of the trippiest and most incredible movie experiences I have ever had and even at home it still manages to wow me with its breathtaking visuals, the incredible musical score composed by Hans Zimmer, and its compelling story with a conclusion that makes me cry every time I watch it.

Since Interstellar I have become fascinated with science-fiction films that take imagination to the next level and try to tell an engaging story that leaves an impact on you. It’s why I went to see The Martian and Arrival in the movies theater and for the most part, enjoyed both of those films wholeheartedly.

Over the years I have heard brief mentions of a science-fiction movie that was supposed to be really good and that movie was Gravity. Yesterday I was scrolling through a bunch of free movies that were available to watch on my cable-device, Youtube TV, and to my great surprise, I ran into Gravity. I was elated. Finally, I would be able to see this movie that was supposedly so good it garnered 10 Oscar nominations, 7 of those 10 nominations becoming wins. I’ll talk about these nominations a little later but first I have to give you my opinion on the movie.
