Films for a Gloomy Day: JuiceMedia Picks

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.

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

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.”

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.”Image result for baby driver
