Rating Title/Year Author
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) Raffy Ermac 'TROS' didn't do anything that other films and TV shows haven't, shoehorning a small but pleasant queer moment in wherever was convenient. Is too little, too late? Oh yeah. Is it something that LGBTQ+ pop culture fans are already used to? Unfortunately. EDIT

Princess Mononoke (1997) Raffy Ermac 'Princess Mononoke' gives empowered voices to women (in a time where they didn't have any) & doesn't make them victims in need of a savior. It also forces audiences to look inward and question the way we consume things from the world around us. EDIT

Crazy Rich Asians (2018) Raffy Ermac Asian characters deserve a rom-com. Asian characters deserve to be in love! And with each other! If Asian viewers can see themselves portrayed in many different ways on screen, then they can believe that they can be many different things in real life. EDIT

Love, Simon (2018) Raffy Ermac While 'Love, Simon' is only one, small glimpse into a diverse and wide-ranging community filled with different stories to tell, it's a good start. And it's something that mainstream audiences need to see more of. EDIT

Promare (2019) Raffy Ermac The strongest theme 'Promare' explores is the discrimination of an entire group of people by the government-an extremely timely, familiar, and relevant story, especially for viewers who live in the States and are aware of the current political climate EDIT

Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) (2020) Raffy Ermac But the best thing about 'Birds of Prey' (and its biggest draw) really is getting to see Harley Quinn shine in the spotlight for once and reclaim her own identity outside of the Joker. EDIT

Weathering With You (2019) Raffy Ermac ...the need to belong and be loved are universal themes that Shinkai, an expert crafter of young, teenage love stories, explores very well in 'Weathering With You.' EDIT

2.5/5 Just Mercy (2019) Valerie Complex Just Mercy is a no-frills film that's not meant to entertain, but act as a wake-up call, and a call to action. EDIT
