    ★★★★★

    Slick and Stylish.

    Collateral is a compelling crime film that manages to have a solid beginning, a great middle, and a satisfying ending.

    It has a well-written dialogue that makes you symphatize with both of the leads despite them being the complete opposite of one other. Michael Mann was able to flesh-out his characters where in you can really see how they evolve throughout the film. The portrayal of Tom Cruise as a merciless hitman and Jamie Foxx as an awkward cab driver was so believable, it is no wonder why the latter was nominated for an Academy Award.

    Can You Ever Forgive Me?

    ★★★★

    Protect Sir Richard Grant at all cost. The Academy does not deserve him.

    ★★★★

    Carol Denvers looking down at the camera saying, "I don't have anything to prove to you" is so badass that I almost choke while eating my burger.

    And also, I refuse to believe they are friends. There is so much sexual tension between Carol and Maria I can feel THAT energy in my bones.

    ★★★★★

    Elegantly directed, acted, and crafted.

    Roma is a deeply melancholic masterpiece; a reflection of reality, bleak yet genuine, silent but not empty. There something about this film that is so comforting...

    It felt like home.
