Movie Review: Room

This past weekend, my mother and I watched the movie Room. Overall, I truly enjoyed the film, and I believe that it was the best movie that I have seen in a long time. It was very capturing and emotional because I sadly know that there are many people in the world that are held captive similar to the characters in Room. This movie showed the importance of maternal love, and I became a little more thankful for my life and my bond with my mother. According to the Rotten Tomatoes website, ninety-four percent of the 39,843 viewers claimed they liked the film. It is rated R for language, but it should be for mature audiences only because the movie is heart-breaking. Jacob Tremblay and Brie Larson did an outstanding job as a duo, and I would be interested to see more of their works. My only complaint is that the second half of the movie is quite slow, and it almost leaves the viewer hanging on the aspect of the captor. However, I would definitely recommend this film because it is very inspirational and it opened my eyes. The movie also won the Academy Award for Best Actress, and it was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture. Tune in next time for the movie review of Sisters.

Movie Review: Schindler's List

This week's movie review is Schindler's List. In my history class, we will begin viewing this movie in order to learn more about the Holocaust and the Nazis. However, I have already watched this film. I believe that Schindler's List is an eye-opening movie that makes a person think twice about their life. Not only did I feel very emotional while watching the film, but I also gained much knowledge about the Holocaust. I am inspired that my class will have the opportunity to view this movie because it is very educational, and I believe that my classmates will become more aware of how victims were treated during this horrific time. According to the Rotten Tomatoes website, ninety-seven percent of the 407,638 viewers liked it (which is truly amazing!). The fact that this film is based off of a true story makes this movie that much more realistic and intriguing. Even though it can be difficult to watch at times, this movie is most definitely a classic. I am always inspired to learn more about the Holocaust. I enjoyed this movie because it kept my attention continually, and I felt as though I became more educated on the event as well as the victims. Schindler's List did show the evil in Germany, but it also displayed that there are good people left in the world. Even at such critical times, a man was risking his life in order to save numerous other lives. I would definitely recommend this movie because the passion and dedication is undeniable. Stay tuned next week for another movie review!

Movie Review: Creed

I watched Creed this past weekend, and I truly enjoyed it. I have seen all of the Rocky Balboa movies so I knew that this movie was going to be entertaining! Michael B. Jordan did an outstanding job, and Sylvester Stallone did not disappoint (even though he has really aged!). Overall, this film had a great story, and it is definitely one of my favorites of the series! According to the Rotten Tomatoes Website, ninety-one percent of the 66,025 voters liked Creed. The website also showed that the movie made $109.7 million in box office sales. I loved how they still added Rocky to the story line, but put a more modern twist on the movie. I would definitely recommend this film because I was never bored, and it really is an inspiration to underdogs. To enjoy this movie, one does not have to be a fan of boxing because it has such a strong impact no matter what. This film is rated PG-13 due to some violence and language, but that is acceptable since it is a dramatic movie. Do not miss out on this one because it is a must-see! Stay tuned for next week!
