Love Actually (2003) Sr. Rose Pacatte There is enough love to go around, but I am not sure this movie does a good job of spreading it. EDIT

Double Lives (2018) Sr. Rose Pacatte An interesting -- and exhausting -- film. I didn't not like it. EDIT

UglyDolls (2019) Sr. Rose Pacatte While this is obviously a movie directed at children, adults can appreciate the opportunity to reflect on the power of positive self-esteem and looking for the good in everyone. Clarkson is a perfect voice for Moxy. EDIT

Knock Down the House (2019) Sr. Rose Pacatte AOC is the film's darling, but the three other strong women profiled are deeply inspiring and committed in their own right. EDIT

Photograph (2019) Sr. Rose Pacatte This sweet coming-of-age story is by writer-director Ritesh Batra, who made 2013's The Lunchbox. I love both of these films because they offer insights into humanity, family, culture, and the values that guide us through life. EDIT

Breakthrough (2019) Sr. Rose Pacatte I found this film a deeply moving and powerful story of faith. Even though I had read the book and met the real people and the cast, I wept more than once during the film. EDIT

Sobibor (2018) Sr. Rose Pacatte The film is even more interesting coming from a Russian perspective. The violence, suffering, death and loss are heartbreaking. EDIT

I, Robot (2004) Sr. Rose Pacatte The plot seemed forced to me, though average summer fare. What bothered me the most however, was the ending. EDIT

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003) Sr. Rose Pacatte The Return of the King is really the heart of this cinematic masterpiece. EDIT

The Hurt Locker (2008) Sr. Rose Pacatte Visceral. EDIT

Million Dollar Baby (2004) Sr. Rose Pacatte It's too bad it is nihilism dressed up as compassion. EDIT
Posted Mar 1, 2018
Crash (2004) Sr. Rose Pacatte Crash is difficult to watch because of the moral chaos it portrays, but it is best film I have seen in a long time. EDIT

No Country for Old Men (2007) Sr. Rose Pacatte It's a smart film and pure Coen. It has a point, though some may contest it. But it's not a must-see film for everyone so if you are a Coen fan, don't take your grandmother. She will say it sucks. EDIT

Slumdog Millionaire (2008) Sr. Rose Pacatte The actors project a special authenticity that engages the viewer. EDIT

Polina, danser sa vie (2016) Sr. Rose Pacatte The film is interesting enough, especially if dance is your focus. EDIT

Aus dem Nichts (2017) Sr. Rose Pacatte "In the Fade" is a riveting film with a heartbreaking believable performance from [Diane] Kruger. EDIT
