With Mother Nature catching a cold and making it snow again, everyone can feel a little gray like the clouds. Some people may read a book or play a game while huddled under their blankets, or having fun in the city with some good company.
For the students at JuiceMedia it’s a good film. Here are their answers.
Baine: “I would have to go with Punch Drunk Love, because it’s a well-written comedy with some good and obscure humor, as well as having a relatable story.”
Ben: “I like watching Jackie Chan films on a bad day. Legend of the Drunken Master is a personal fave because it’s a perfect blend of well choreographed action with good humor. It just works.”
Elias: “Kubo & the Two Strings. Hands down. The beautiful stop-motion animation is amazing (expect nothing less from Laika), and the story is wonderful. The music blends well into the narrative, which makes it great for a gloomy day.”
Gavin: “It would have to be a tie between Upgrade from 2018 with its
cinematography and dark, yet enjoyable story, or King Arthur from 2017 with its music and visuals. Either way, they‘re both great films to watch.”
Izzy: “I would go with Frances Ha. It’s a bittersweet film, but the writing by Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach makes the story and humor work. And I really like Gerwig’s performance in the film.”
Nathan: “I think I would have to go with Eighth Grade. It is a sad film, yeah, but I felt nostalgic for that not-so-distant past.”
Sev: “Coraline. I enjoy its atmosphere, and it’s fun to watch on a gloomy day.”
Tommy: “Baby Driver is my pick for sure. I really like the protagonist. He’s so cool. Notjust that, I like the story, the acting, its pacing, music and editing. It’s great even for a sunny day.”
