    "School of Rock is a light-hearted comedy starring Jack Black that was quite enjoyable and is appropriate for both adults and kids and that is what I like most about it. If you're looking for something that pulls at your heart strings and lifts your spirits, this movie is for you. It is a story that shows that sometimes teaching should not be so stuffy and that teachers should be allowed to go with their gut to get kids interested. Great movie."

    "Whiplash was a really fun movie! Sure, it's a pretty tired trope to have a young man mentored by a gruff older man, but it works well here. A young drummer tries to rise to the top, and his instructor is there to guide him. They clash, but don't they always? Really shows how music really brings people together, and it's a good film to watch if that's what you're into."

    "I recently watched again the movie 8 Mile, and I really enjoyed it. This movie talks about the life of the rapper Eminem, about all the troubles he's been in, and how he reached the success despite everything and everyone. I suggest the view of this movie to whoever likes Eminem."
