A review of "Be More Chill" by Ned Vizzini

How would I describe this book? Probably as “a satirical social critique disguised as a John Greenesque high school sex comedy.” With a narrative voice straight out of a Woody Allen film, Ned Vizzini tells the story of a typical neurotic teenaged schmuck named Jeremy Heere, who inhabits a very atypical plot.

The Thomas Crown Affair (1999)

Do you want to have some romantic, exciting fun? If so, check this one out! This is one clever, keeps-you-guessing remake, all while being a wild ride. After I watched this one and loved it, I checked out the original film. The 1968 version is less exciting, more confusing and basically, in my opinion, not […]
