    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    ★★★

    I guess it was fine? The cameos were ok, they dealt with Carrie Fisher's death as well as they probably could have given the timing of filming. The themes were hammered home heavy-handedly to the point of being laughable.

    The "reveal" of Rey's identity was depressingly cliched, especially after the way the previous movie left things. And the resolution of Kylo Ren's plotline was infuriating.

    Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)

    ★★★★★

    Manic and violent and everything I want out of a breakup movie, with a central love story between a girl and a nasty breakfast sandwich.

    I wish it had been more explicitly queer, and the couple of times protagonists littered sandwich wrappers on the street without comment bothered me intensely, far more than the murderous violence.

    Thief

    ★★★

    Beautifully shot neo-noir, but with one-note character motivations, and surprise, gross treatment of every woman in the movie.
