The mysterious film develops an unexpected symbolic change that plays out kinda well. Characters were ok, though the acting seems off and the scenes are unconventional and questionable, the film is still a must-see as it imparts valuable lessons.

Something that feels relatively intimate, Lady Bird is a quirky film that has its screenplay at point exhibiting Greta Gerwig's staple odd charismatic story-telling. Recommendable for coming-of-age film lovers!

Votes: 22,365 | Gross: $2.46M

Mystifying. It's an awe to make such characters that you- at this film- once in a lifetime experience. Lines explicitly bring laughter during spontaneous situations, a surprisingly good adventure seeking self in the bustling streets of New York. The characters that revolve around the story are interesting and definitely adds up to the fire. Greta Gerwig is a genius.

Votes: 513,989 | Gross: $42.34M

A thrill. Birdman, with its atypical sense in all forms, didn't fail to bring out the light in its dark depressing theme. Birdman traversed one of the simplest plot but with incredible execution. Birdman is an experience in its own form.

Votes: 606,094 | Gross: $13.09M

Gives you a complete experience of how hard it is to be a striving musician. Its premise was one of a kind. Though one comment, the film didn’t make me feel the progression, but I guess that’s good somehow. The film didn’t have a major event or something monumental that adds up parts to the movie’s sum.

From the first moment, this psychological film has you hooked with its characters, staple music scoring and basically the whole gist of the story— which is in totality, a lot and each of them had a significant theme. Full of unexpected twists and turns and extravaganzas. Truly magnificent, nothing like I've ever seen before.

Votes: 1,066

Nostalgic. The feeling of first love, friendship, and youth. This psychedelic romance Korean drama had strong points: its incorporation of the old cinema, the sensibility of the characters and emotional connection, the turnout of events and most notably the music and most most notably its story. Love Rain is totally one of my favorites!

The premise of the film was unclear. The execution was what made it seem okay. It's remarkable for being culturally funny, the actors did an OK job. Exquisite ending.

Votes: 479,973 | Gross: $121.46M

Not bad for a teen comedy film. Made me laugh, chuckle and think. Superbad is a film of its kind, actors are excellent in giving the audience pure joy and the ex-machinas in the movie are such a delight as it brings discomfort and nothing but pure comedic trance to critics and audiences alike.
