Daisy Edgar-Jones portrays the main character Kya, in the movie adaptation of Where the Crawdads Sing, she really brings the character to life straight off the pages of the book. The movie gets slow in a few places, but the visual aesthetics of the movie make up for it. All in all, the movie was very well done and kept pretty close to the book.

The Blair Witch Project is a found footage documentary style film telling the story of Heather, Michael and Joshua who travel to Burkittsville, Maryland to make a documentary on the legend of the Blair Witch. The film follows the trio as they hike into the woods in search of different locations to film and as night falls they find themselves lost. Trying to make it back to their car they soon realize they might not be alone and that the local legend might not be a legend at all. I enjoyed the found footage style of the movie. I thought it added to the tension in the atmosphere.

I enjoyed watching the PBS program American Oz about L. Frank Baum, the man who wrote The Wizard of Oz. There seems to be a common link between many successful people insomuch as they struggle with a lot of adversity in the beginning but they keep getting back up and working at it. I liked how Baum never lost that child-like adventure and wonderment and never gave up on his dream. This was a good biography to watch with a happy ending, much like Dorothy.

Casablanca is a classic film set during WWII, which has some of the most quoted lines in movie history, is a must see for movie buffs. Rick (Humphrey Bogart) is an American expatriate bar owner in Morocco, and when his former lover Ilsa (Ingrid Bergman) asks for his help to flee the city from the Nazis with her husband, he has to decide how much he is willing to risk. The witty dialogue between the deadpan Rick and Captain Renault (Claude Rains) is worth the price of admission alone.
