Movie Review: What’s Eating Gilbert Grape(1993)

I have seen this film maybe three times, and each time I have learn something new. What’s Eating Gilbert Grape came out in 1993, and it still hold today. This is a film that I think sticks with you, at least that is what it did for me. To watch and see how everything is and how they are treated is heartbreaking. This is stuff that happens all the time, but people do not talk about it.

If you are looking for a movie to make you think I highly recommend that you watch this film. You will leave asking questions that you may not ever think to ask. The cast Johnny Depp and Leonardo DiCaprio are great. They show a range that is not like any other from people at there age. I would give this movie 7 out 10.

Movie Review: Good Will Hunting(1997)

I must say I have watched this movie at least 5 times, and every time I enjoyed it. I do not know what it is about this film that I like, but every time I see it somewhere I watch it. Good Will Hunting, is one the films that you can watch no matter what is going on, at least that is how it is for me. I did not know what this film was going to be about when I first watch it, but it turned out being great.

This was one of the films that made me want to write a screenplay one day, and to tell a story that is like this. This film stars Robin Williams and Matt Damon, Damon also happens to be one of the writers of this along with Ben Affleck. I think the story telling is great they draw into this world where we all think that we know someone, but we really do not.

I would give this film a 7 out 10 and say that everyone should at least give this film a try.

Movie Review: The Forty-Year-Old-Version(2020)

This movie came out last year, and I think it is one of the best to come out of the year 2020. The Forty-Year-Old- Version, tells a story that is so relatable that anybody would understand it. The film stars and is directed by Radha Blank, and she is brilliant in it. This is also her debut which makes it even more special to me. This is not your average film about trying to make it. This is one that shows how hard it is to make it and keep it.

I am not going to give the story away, but it hits home for me for the fact that I understand what she is going through with her career. If you are a struggling artist, you will understand. There is a lot of stuff that I am going through with mine that I just cannot seem to get together. I would recommend that everybody go to Netflix and watch this film. This is not a movie for kids. I would give this an 8 out 10. You will thank me later.  

Movie Review: Set it Off(1996)

This film must be in the top 15 movies that I absolutely love. Set it off, has to be one of the most underrated films that came out in the 1990’s. The film stars Jada Pinkett, Queen Latifah, Vivica Foxx, and Kimberly Ellis. It is about a group of women who are upset with everything that is going on around them that they want to escape. Not only their neighborhood, but also their lives. The only way that they can do is to get money, and there is only one way to do it is to rob a bank.

I have seen this movie at least 20 times, and it still holds up after all these years. I do not know anybody that has not seen this movie, and if you have not you should go watch as soon as you can. It is sad, but it is a journey that is worth taking. I would give this film a 7.5 out 10. There is so much more that can be done to make this movie better that is why I am giving them that score.
