Things I Like: Darkest Hour (2017 Film)

I think I first heard of Darkest Hour when the Oscar nominations were announced. When the Oscars gave out the Academy Awards, Gary Oldman won the Oscar for Best Actor for his role of Winston Churchill in the film. Now when I think of actors who look like Winston Churchill, Gary Oldman doesn’t’ come toContinue reading “Things I Like: Darkest Hour (2017 Film)”

Things I Like: The Contender (2000 Film)

While trying to search for older critically acclaimed movies, I was pointed to The Contender which is a political thriller of sorts. Even though American politics are at an all-time high of being insanely absurd, it was a little strange to go back just to a time where national issues were much milder due toContinue reading “Things I Like: The Contender (2000 Film)”
