    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Most of Pixar’s latest releases, while enjoyable, for the most part, haven’t resonated with me. There’s not a lot of memorabilities, I tend to gravitate towards the characters I grew up with like Woody & Buzz from Toy Story or The Incredibles, even Boo and all her cuteness from Monsters Inc. that’s the Pixar I enjoy. Again, I’m not saying films such as Inside Out, CoCo or Onward aren’t good, I just don’t often return to them (I have my reasons…

    ★★★★

    It is a joy to revisit this film. Shot beautifully in the wilderness, watching this family slowly deteriorate one by one. What is most impressive is the performances--specifically the child actors. They're all phenomenal once the story reaches the climax. The imagery throughout the entire film is brutally disturbing, and yet, I love it. It will always be baffling that Eggers felt like he didn't make the film he intended.

    This film has it all. An ending that fills me with goosebumps, the eerie and haunting score to match. Great performances, script, and directing; regardless of what Eggers thinks of himself on this.

    It's because of this short film, we--as the audience--were blessed with "The Witch" as Eggers' feature film debut. For 10 short minutes, he manages to create massive tension between these 2 brothers. This was gripping and unsettling all at once. An interesting portrayal of the Cain and Abel story.

    Even in film school, Ryan Coogler had a powerful voice. This short film was incredible and very touching towards the end. Also, no surprise to see the music was done by Ludwig Goransson. If you're a fan of Ryan Coogler I would highly recommend checking this out. Nice to see his early beginnings as a writer and director.

    Return of the Jedi

    ★★★★

    Return of the Jedi is a fitting way to put an end to a saga (or so we thought). Now a fully trained Jedi Knight, Luke must face his father, Vader once again and help not only put an end to the Empire but bring balance to the force.

    The final battle on Endor, in the third act is intense. Everyone on both sides risking it all to claim total victory. The Emperor finally making his appearance in a new…
