    The Shallows 2016

    ★★★½ Watched 27 Jun, 2016

    It's like a strange remix of Castaway, 127 Hours, and Jaws...4. Someway, somehow it works for what it is.

    Star Wars: The Force Awakens 2015

    ★★★★ Rewatched 23 Jun, 2016

    Third watch. It's what was required after the prequels. Hopefully the follow-ups will be free to explore some new territory and ditch the heavy dependence on mysterious character origins.

    Is something wrong with my TV? It's all blue, then orange, then grainy, then ultra clean. Oh wait, nevermind. I'm watching a Soderbergh film. A very good one mind you, but definitely held back a bit by some overt soapboxing.

    ★★★★½ Watched 22 Mar, 2015

    I kept waiting for the hysterical chant of, "ANIMAL! ANIMAL! ANIMAL!" at the end.
