Movie Review: 'Before I Fall' (2017)

What makes someone a good person? That is one of the questions at the heart of “Before I Fall,” a magnificently directed teen drama about Samantha Kingston (a phenomenal Zoey Deutch), a high school senior, who keeps reliving the last day she remembers.

This “Groundhog Day” scenario plays out with a nuance other similarly-themed films have struggled to capture. “Before I Fall” is more character driven, thought-provoking, and disturbing.

Based on Lauren Oliver’s novel of the same name, “Before I Fall” tackles hard-hitting themes and dilemmas. It debates the moral responsibility of a member of a “Mean Girls” clique, a daughter’s duty to her parents, and a sister’s to her siblings.

Writing About: 'Game of Thrones' Season 7: Questions, Opinions & Speculation

“Game of Thrones” Season 7 has drawn to an end. No! Yes, unfortunately, it is true. With three fewer episodes than its previous seasons, “Game of Thrones” flew by this year.

The good news is that Season 7 was exceptional; an absolute delicacy that united and reunited characters far and wide. Thanks to a newly heightened pace, the season was able to generate multiple momentous milestones.

It also provided ample material to write about. Previous seasons of “Game of Thrones” have historically offered many things to meditate on and Season 7 has been no exception. 

Here is what I’ve been writing about “Game of Thrones” Season 7 on the Inquisitr. Please be warned, spoilers for the entire season (Episodes 1 - 7) are discussed below. The links to read are in blue.

Quick Hit Movie Reviews #12: 'Bleed For This,' 'The Founder,' & 'Gold'

What do the 2016 films; “The Founder,” “Gold,” and “Bleed for This” share in common? Each movie is centered on a protagonist taking a bold shot at glory. Two of the three movies turn their lens towards real larger-than-life characters, while another offers a fictionalized account of true events.

Under the golden arches of McDonald’s, Ray Kroc finds his last great hope for financial success in “The Founder.” In the dramedy “Gold” a fictionalized character spends his last dime on the wild dream he can strike gold. While boxer Vinny Pazienza deals with the life-altering risks of staging a comeback to the ring, taking the chance his attempt could be his first and last.

Three men aim for glory, which movies deliver it to them? Eclectic Pop weighs in…
