From the writer director of hit HBO Max series Euphoria, Sam Levinson brings together two of Hollywood’s hottest stars in a black-and-white romantic drama where a filmmaker and his girlfriend put their relationship to the test. The film is said to be “achingly” beautiful and the chemistry between Washington and Zendaya is strong.

Owen Wilson and Salma Hayek star in this “mind-bending” love story where a man who is recently divorced and fired meets a woman living on the streets who believes everyone is living in a computer simulation. This could be an interestingly weird take on the romantic genre right before Valentine’s Day.

Johnny Depp returns to the big screen as “war photographer W. Eugene Smith travels to Japan where he documents the devastating effects of mercury poisoning in coastal communities.” Film critic Scott A. Mantz describes the film as “a gripping and emotionally satisfying tale of corporate greed, consequence and comeuppance”

When the disease gets in between the relationship of Jude and Emma, the lines between the past and present, what is true and false, are blurred. Little Fish is a film that celebrates the memories we share with our significant other and has been called a “gentle reflection in an increasingly crazed world” by critic Brian Orndorf.

Movies have been my passion since I was a young teenager. I had realized how much I loved going to the theater and watching something on the big screen, and I wanted to feel that sensation as often as possible. I began seeing as many movies as my schedule and wallet could allow, and in wanting to give back to the film community and myself, I wrote film reviews. I first posted them under the audience reviews of Rotten Tomatoes; if I ever go back to those posts now I cringe at the writer I used to be. In 2018, I had the idea to start my own space to post my content and thus Movie Reviews Today was born. I am a film and media studies student at Arizona St. University. I am also a three-year shift supervisor with Starbucks. My hope is to soak up as many movies and movie knowledge as I can moving forward and to share my passion with my readers.
