Tonight I had the pleasure of catching an early screening of one of my most anticipated films of the year, "Eight Grade" along with a livestream Q&A with the cast and crew courtesy of Alamo Drafthouse. Every so often a film comes along that's just an absolute game changer and for the coming of age genre, that film is "Eight Grade". I have to of course begin with the man behind the entire project, writer and director Bo Burnham. As a director, Burnham did everything he could possibly do right as the primary overseer of this project. It's the level of authenticity that he brought to the film that makes it so special, never being afraid to show what middle school actually looks like, sounds like and feels like for a shy and awkward eight grade girl, even if that meant being painfully honest. There were so many moments in this film where Burnham was able to evoke the feeling of embarrassment or anxiousness in the viewer and place us directly in the shoes of our main characters using camera techniques, editing, music, actor improves or sometimes even all four which is truly the work of a gifted director. As for the screenplay, he was able to avoid every bad high school film cliche and instead create a free flowing movie that knew when to make us laugh but also when to break down in tears. The monologue delivered by Josh Hamilton towards the end of the film was the emotional highlight of the movie and had the entire theater including myself dabbing our eyes because of how simple yet beautiful it was. In addition, many high school films tend to fall into the trap in which the dialogue ends up sounding nothing like the way actual teenagers talk but the fact that the teenagers in this film actually spoke the way we are accustomed to hearing them in 2018 only made the movie seem even more realistic even if it was painfully cringing to listen to. Of course the wonderful direction and flawless screenplay wouldn't have transpired so well if it weren't for the solid performances. While the acting was perfect across the board it's no surprise the main standout was newcomer Elsie Fisher as Kayla Day, quite possibly my new favorite fictional character of all time.

Hey y'all, last week I asked you to send me questions for my first ever Q&A and y'all didn't disappoint! I've uploaded my answers on IGTV! I talk movies, gaming, superheroes, and my show-off my video production set-up. Take a gander 📺
High expectations for Shahrukh Khans Upcoming Zero!
No wonder, director Anand L. Rai's films "Tanu Weds Manu" in 2011, "Raanjhana" in 2013, and 2015's "Tanu Weds Manu: Returns" where all very nice movies and did very well at the box office.
And when we look at the star cast of the film, well, expectations get high. But before I say another word there is something very important about Zero:
Zero marks the last film appearance of Indian film legend Sridevi. The Actress sadly passed away at 24. February 2018 at the young age of 54.
But the film could also be a high light in many other ways. Back to the star cast, which includes Shah Rukh Khan, Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif.
That's not all, Zero will have top-class special appearances including, Kajol, Deepika Padukone, Alia Bhatt, Rani Mukherji, Karisma Kapoor ( not that anybody would need her...), Juhi Jawla, R.Madhavan and last but not least Salman Khan.
Yes!!! Their fight is finally over and the two Khans will shake legs together and bring the house down.
Let's see what else Zero has to offer.
King Khan will play a man suffering from Dwarfism, Katrina Kaif will be seen as an Actress fighting with an alcohol problem which might be her most difficult role compared to her low acting skills. Let's see how she will do. Anyway, Anushka Sharma will star as a failed Scientist.
I look forward to this film, which is the most awaited Bollywood film of 2018. Release date is the 21. Dezember 18
What are your thoughts about it?
Odeon Limitless 181 was Skyscraper. I could not quite figure out completely how I feel about this film when I initially left cinema. I am leaning towards an above average score. Dwayne Johnson does ooze likeability which helps give the film higher marks, and it is a film that you can switch the brain off to with some nice action sequences. It’s nice to see Neve Campbell back on the big screen and I hope Hollywood takes note and give her more films again to sink her teeth in. I did find the jump from the crane to the building laughably cringeworthy even for a film like this. The villains are instantly forgettable also, and a good antagonist would have really helped the tension better. All in all not bad but can’t quite hit the good for me. At least Rampage had George to help knock up its marks. It’s 5.5/10 from me.
