What Happened to Monday

My rating: ★★★☆☆

Plot: “In a world where families are allowed only one child due to overpopulation, resourceful identical septuplets must avoid governmental execution and dangerous infighting while investigating the disappearance of one of their own.”

Personal Review: For those who enjoy dystopian, futuristic, sci-fi thrillers this movie is for you. It follows the tale of seven identical twins suffering to co-exist in a one-child ruled society. They are designated a day of the week, according to their names, where they are able to leave the house and play a single woman- Karen Setman. This movie keeps you on the edge of your seat and you will be rooting for these seven sisters to outsmart their oppressive government.








My rating: ★★★★☆

Plot: “As a grisly virus rampages a city, a lone man stays locked inside his apartment, digitally cut off from seeking help and desperate to find a way out.”

Personal Review: This movie is a perfect symbol of the past year of our lives. Watching the characters fight to stay alive in the midst of a zombie apocalypse had me comparing living alongside a global pandemic with their situation.










I, Tonya

Personal Rating: ★★★★☆

Plot: “Based on the unbelievable but true events, I, Tonya is a dark comedic tale of American figure skater, Tonya Harding, and one of the most sensational scandals in sports history.”

Personal Review: Has been one of my favorite movies since it’s release. Even if you don’t know who Tonya Harding is, or have any interest in figure skating, check this one out. It perfectly balances biography with comedic touches.








Dead Poets Society

Personal Rating: ★★★★★

Plot: “A new English teacher, John Keating (Robin Williams), is introduced to an all-boys preparatory school that is known for its ancient traditions and high standards. He uses unorthodox methods to reach out to his students, who face enormous pressures from their parents and the school. With Keating’s help, students Neil Perry (Robert Sean Leonard), Todd Anderson (Ethan Hawke) and others learn to break out of their shells, pursue their dreams and seize the day.”

Personal Review: A true classic, if you haven’t seen it- you need to! One of my favorite films, Robin Williams does an amazing job in his role.
