Race (2016)
2 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Just in time for the 2016 Summer Olympics, this inspiring story that happened 80 years ago still resonates today due to the struggles of the main athlete, Jesse Owens, and the kind of environment that he had to grow up with. The level of detail dedicated to the authenticity of this historical drama is laudable.

Spotlight (2015)
3 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

A well-balanced real-life drama on what happened before the first huge exposť of the Catholic Church's major scandal, this is a must watch for fellow Catholics around the globe. It is amazing how the Boston reporters managed to prepare their report under wrap of secrecy in 2001, and maintained their focus even when the need to report on the 9/11 attack nearly eclipsed the significance of their reporting.

And before you try to dismiss this film as anti-Catholic, L'Osservatore Romano (the official Vatican newspaper) has officially endorsed this film as factual and not an anti-Catholic one as many had feared. So please, watch it.

The Big Short
The Big Short (2015)
3 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

This is a very informative yet entertaining film explaining what happened during the Great Recession of 2008. If only more people watch this instead of blaming poor people and immigrants for the myriad of issues that this country faces, perhaps there wouldn't be as many people voting for the two major party candidates today

The Intern
The Intern (2015)
3 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

A really lovely comedy drama about unusual friendship of an old intern (played by DeNiro), his boss (played by Hathaway), and his colleagues.

Theeb (2015)
4 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

A very realistic film about a Bedouin boy trying to survive the harsh Arabian desert in 1916. Without any embellishing for dramatic effects, this plays out like a mini-travel-documentary sans narration.
