Below are movies that I consider "HIT", so give them a try!

the internship

Thursday, March 20th, 2014

I really liked this movie. Not just because I hope to one day work at Google, but because it presents a lot of qualities in people that I would like to adopt. The movie did not receive outstanding reviews upon release, but I consider that a real shame. I thought it did a good job Read more…

wall street

“Damn, Michael Douglas has been old for a long time” was the first words out of my mouth when MD appeared on screen because seriously, dude’s been the same age forever. Not to write that as an insult, but more as a testament to his youth in some way. Panda thought this would be a Read more…

wolf of wall street

A three hour movie that doesn’t get dull. But a movie not everyone will enjoy like the elderly couple who were completely vexed by the laughter in the theater at scenes of drug-induced craziness. This movie paints a very extravagant and corrupt picture of stock brokers. An image I kind of envisioned, but one that Read more…

about time

A convergence of The Time Traveler’s Wife and a dramatic feel of Love Actually is how I would describe this movie. And not far off since Rachel McAdams and the director of Love Actually are a part of this film. The movie was pleasant, but perhaps a little redundant. I think the idea of time Read more…

I get it. I totally get why John Cusack was so bloody popular in the 90s now. He was a heart throb. A genuine boy-next-door with the right mind to treat a lady right. I don’t think you’ll feel particularly moved by this movie. It’s more of a portrait of the youth and their struggles Read more…

I didn’t grow up very religious, but if I did grow up super duper religious, I suppose the portrayal of such an environment would be accurate if not exaggerated. This movie was unexpectedly entertaining. It was a blend of Mean Girls and Juno with a surprise appearance of Macaulay Culkin. To be honest, I didn’t Read more…

Well, I think after 500 Days of Summer, Inception, and Looper (among other works), it’s been established that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is a good actor. And with this being his directorial debut, Gordon-Levitt has proven, too, that he can be a kick-ass writer and director. The story was original to say the very least and the Read more…

eternal sunshine of the spotless mind

Saturday, September 28th, 2013

As obscure as the events in the story may be, the movie captures real and honest moments and visually narrates the struggles of any relationship. You see the good, the bad, and the ugly, in addition to that inevitable moment when you just want to forget it all happened right before you realize that you Read more…

better luck tomorrow

If you ever wondered what it was like being a teenager in public high school, I think this is a great representation of the good, the bad, and the ugly. The film gave me a very California impression and rightly so since it is set in The Golden State. The cast could not have been Read more…

17 again

Tuesday, September 10th, 2013

I suppose after this movie, I could be on the Zac Efron bandwagon. He comes off as super charming and he assumes the role of a 30 or 40-some year old in a teenager’s body surprisingly well. Okay, that last sentence can make one weary, but trust me, it’s all going to be okay. The Read more…
