    This movie it’s possibly the most important movie of Greta Gerwig’s career. 

    You can tell her voice is in this movie and it seems to me that Barbie is the perfect messenger for what Gerwig has to say about womanhood, patriarchy and social interactions between men and woman.

    Scream VI


    Probably the second best movie in the saga, and a major improvement in almost every way.

    The character work improved a lot in this installment, we are finally in front a new generation that benefits from familiar faces but that are no longer it’s training wheels.

    This is the most brutal Ghostface ever, the deaths and violence have increased their intensity and the same goes for the offensive of the protagonists. However, there are certain problems, the killer reveal felt,…
