    Windom Earle gets to live out his fantasies inside the Black Lodge.

    Great practical effects. The team here is very visually imaginative. A shining example of "less is more" and the creativity inspired by limitation. It's a shame they felt they needed to bog down the final third of the movie in exposition. Silence would have been more effective.

    A Star Is Born


    A Star is Born (2018): In which the titular star is sidelined by the story of yet another tore up addicted white man with too many inner demons.

    Like the Rube Goldberg gate-opening, this movie may seem kind of dumb and may fall apart under close scrutiny -- but that's not the point. It's okay to relax and enjoy it.
