Mandalorian

You don’t have to be into Star Wars to love everything about Mandalorian. The story follows a bounty hunter who has second thoughts about a target and ends up befriending a “baby yoda”. You can’t help but love their dynamic and with each episode become more and more invested in their well being. I give this show 2 intergalactic thumbs way up and it is definitely “Relatable”.

Joker

Although I heard a lot of hate surrounding this movie, I thoroughly enjoyed it. The Joker usually compliments Batman as the crazed villain with a lacking backstory. This movie highlighted how someone could become the Joker and addresses the issue of mental illness at the same time. Just like Deadpool change the mold for raunchy superhero movies, I hope The Joker did too with this suspenseful thriller, as opposed to all action and catch phrases. He’s no Heath Ledger, but Joaquin Phoenix knocked it out of the park and the new joker is definitely “Relatable”.

Tell Me Who I Am

Imagine waking up and not knowing who you are. Luckily you remember your twin brother who helps you put back together the pieces. But what if he left things out to “protect” you. One is trying to remember and the other is trying to forget. How would you feel?

This documentary is so good and how they tell the story, really pulls you in. It helps you connect with the brothers as you understand both their sides of the story. I’m not crazy for docs’, but Tell Me Who I Am is definitely “Relatable”.

Dolemite Is My Name

Eddie Murphy is another one of those guys, for me, that can do no wrong. From stand up to movies he’s been excellent. Dolemite Is My Name is one of his best performances yet. He’s funny, sincere, genuine, and with a star studded cast, this based on a true story tale is nothing short of 2 thumbs way up. 4 flames on the 🔥 scale. The movie is good from start to finish and worth doing the extra research to see how influential Rudy Ray Moore truly was. Netflix does it again, this movie is definitely “Relatable”.

The Righteous Gemstones

When I first saw Danny McBride, I thought he was a one trick pony. A guy who was really good at playing himself and didn’t have much range. But after following his career and one brilliant show/movie after another, he’s the real deal. And it’s no wonder why The Righteous Gemstones is a hit. The show was created, produced and and stars Mr. McBride, and follows a prominent televangelist family through their trials and tribulations. This show is nonstop laughter and definitely “Relatable”.

Gemini Man

As a Will Smith fan, I expected Gemini Man to be good, but it was even better than that. The storyline seemed new and hard to predict, while also presenting interesting moral questions that made you connect with the characters. The visual effects are amazing, and the fight scenes literally had me on the edge of my seat. I can’t describe it, without feeling like I’m giving too much away, but it’s perfect for the times and worth the egregious price to see it in theaters. Gemini Man gets my vote, and is definitely “Relatable”.
