    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    ★★★★½

    After a second viewing, I've changed my mind: this is my favorite Star Wars movie of them all.

    From time to time, I guess I feel the need to check in and see whether this is still that bad, or whether it has somehow magically improved.
    Nope.

    Man on Fire

    ★★★½

    As much as I should (and mostly do) dislike this film, I find myself returning to it time and again, probably drawn in by more than my fascination for Tony Scott's lurid high-contrast aesthetics or yet another powerful but one-dimensional Denzel Washington performance. The whole thing is politically, ideologically, and in most other ways impossible to defend, and yet it has the powerful taste of good, slippery pulp fiction, its many overblown idiocies adding to rather than detracting from its strength as a film. Moth, meet flame.

    Maybe not the best Star Wars, but certainly the *most* Star Wars. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
