Movies

Get Out

In the psychological thriller “Get Out,” director and writer Jordan Peele delivered a film nothing short of spectacular. In a world of repetitive horror, “Get Out” offered a unique, refreshing plot, with characters that plunged beyond the surface of superficial development. “Get Out” eerily explored the sickness of the human mind, leaving us questioning the limits of desire, especially in the case of race and physique. Daniel Kaluuya fully committed to his character, Chris, allowing for the audience to easily relate to his persona, unlike many films of the same genre.

 

Wonder Woman

This new american superhero film hit home for viewers everywhere. Not only are the special effects and cinematography superior to many in its league, but it is a commendable example of women on the rise in the entertainment industry. Based on The DC Comics and distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, “Wonder Woman” received a 92 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Washington Post described the film as “an invigorating shot in the metal-cuffed arm of handsome design and snappy storytelling.” It is safe to say that a new bar has been set for upcoming Marvel renditions.

Wonder

Recently released in November, “Wonder” has engraved itself in the hearts of its viewers as an inspiring, heartwarming journey of obstacles that are hard for many to comprehend. Auggie, played by Jacob Tremblay, has a disorder that causes his biggest challenges throughout the film, but the message lies much deeper. “Maybe this little movie about a kid with a facial disorder isn’t really about a kid with a facial disorder at all, but about whatever you and I choose to see in it. And if that’s not art, I don’t know what is,” Bilge Ebiri, a Rotten Tomatoes top critic said.

 

Music

Despacito

With over 16 weeks as number one on the Billboard Hot 100, “Despacito” was crowned as the king of summer 2017 music. Its Latin American roots went seamlessly hand in hand with pop sensation Justin Bieber. His participation in the song, along with Daddy Yankee and Luis Fonsi, boosted its worldwide popularity, appealing to a variety of listeners, and securing its place as a top hit of 2017.
