    Return of the Jedi

    Watched with audio commentary. 


    Return of the Jedi is a pretty chill ending to the original Star Wars trilogy. It starts off pretty strong and the rest evens itself out to a grand finale of Daddy Issues: the Movie. The Ewoks are a thing of weird fantasy but whatever they contribute a lot to the plot. One thing I liked about the commentary was the final part where the fighting of Luke v. Vader and what’s happening on Endor is nicely edited.

    The Empire Strikes Back

    I don’t know if anybody is out there that’ll say this isn’t the best Star Wars movie, because it is. Everybody else is a liar. The greatest thing to happen was Lucas stepping back a bit and letting somebody else take over his story. Still though the other great thing is such a buildup to the unexpected twist that even having seen this so many times, there’s no clue that’s going to happen. This is a lot bigger production on…

    Arrival

    ★★★★½

    I mean if you see like two things this November worth your money, this is one of them. This is not another alien arrival film it's so much more. It is one of the more life changing films I have ever seen which surprised me a lot. I don't care you all have to see this. I am blown away by where this went and it left me feeling a sense of hope for our way of life.
