Trainwreck
Trainwreck (2015)

Trainwreck started so well, it was funny, interesting and who doesn't love Amy but unfortunately it just turned into just another unrealistic story. I believed the character up to the point where she goes home with her teenage intern .....come on really. Getting your heart broken doesn't make you ignorant. Then when she "smartens up" to become serious about being in a committed relationship she gets rid of all her booze and decides to completely change who she is. I mean wow way to be totally sexist whoever wrote this crap. Nice job on continuing to show women that to be in a monogamous relationship you have to get rid of everyone and everything but this guy you're seeing because otherwise you're a bad woman.

What an incredibly lovely film and now I'm super sad that James Gandolfini is gone, he was absolutely charming in this

Nebraska
Nebraska (2013)

Nebraska is so simply dysfunctional and awkwardly heartwarming that I fell in love within minutes. The simplistic score gives it such a genuine feel and I want to hug whoever decided to film it in black & white because I don't even to want to imagine it in color. I truly feel I know these characters which came as a pleasant surprise. There's so many good things to say about this film but for me the only one that matter is ......this film feels like home ;)

Undefeated
Undefeated (2012)
4 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Not only does this documentary deserve the oscar it won but it's the best sports film ever and no I don't say that lightly. It's real, it's heartbreaking, it's inspiring and most importantly, it displays what high school football is all about ..... heart. So trust me if you love football as much as I do you will be wowed or for the suckers like me be moved to tears :)

Fruitvale Station

Ryan Coogler made his debut into the film world with brilliance, I liked the buildup to the station scene. I felt this guy was incredibly flawed but someone who had a heart, granted I have no idea what the real guy was like and people will say his flaws weren't captured enough but for me, I got it. The station scene may be one of the most intense scenes I've ever experienced, there's no overly dramatic music and I was literally shaking. Michael B. Jordan, who was an awesome addition back in the day to the Friday Night Lights cast, does not disappoint, honestly all the acting was impressive, I never once felt like it was overdone. I try not to cry in front of complete strangers but everything came together in just the right way that it could not have been stopped and neither could at least half of my theater. So go see it just be prepared for tears.
