    Deliver Us from Evil

    Tear away the action, police procedural, mystery, and supernatural suspense, and you get a Christian Apologist film. How there is real evil in the world, and it can only be defeated through prayer and power of Christ. It even has the audacity to dress itself is as a true story by the end.

    Absolutely stay away from this film.

  • Despicable Me

    Despicable Me

    ★★★

    A cute tale of a jerk whose heart I warmed by something simple: being a decent human man being to those who are too young to have proper agency over their lives. The humor can be a tad twisted, what with having children in the presence of someone who has no problem murdering others (freeze rays actually kill you, death traps in home, other evil villain shenanigans). The angle of the lead sometimes being a bizarre klutz takes the edge…

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    ★★★★★

    "FUN" is the best adjective I can give this movie. It's a roller coaster of emotion, and visually fantastic. So much was at stake and so much lost, really nailing in the theme of death and rebirth.

  • Jack the Giant Slayer

    Jack the Giant Slayer

    ★★★

    This movie is filled with stereotypical tropes to the brim, but it's the best damn adaption of Attack on Titans I've seen. Okay, not really an adaption, but it gets all the points right on the physical futility on fighting against a giant, but also the ingenuity and technology of humans. This movie shines on being Attack on Titan Lite in the last 30 minutes, so if you can deal with the medieval fairy tale stereotypical banter...enjoy.
