    The Wizard of Oz

    ★★★★

    “The Wizard of Oz” is the definition of iconic. I have never seen the film before, but I already knew all the major characters and story beats as well as most of the songs and many famous quotes. So, nothing about this film really surprised me, but it was still a very satisfying cinematic experience to finally watch this classic.

    Unfortunately, I have several problems with the rest of the film. Even for a Spider-Man movie, I find…

    The Apartment

    ★★★★

    Billy Wilder is one of the most critically acclaimed directors of all time. Therefore, it is rather shameful that so far, I have seen only one of his movies (“Some Like it Hot”, and that was many years ago). Of course, I want to change that, and I thought that “The Apartment” would be a good start.

    “The Apartment” is masterfully written, directed, and acted. It is a perfect mix of comedy and drama, being in equal parts hilarious and…
