    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    ★★★★★

    Still as fabulous the second time around. I didn't mind the whole casino thing that much anymore, though it's still the weakest part of the film.
    What I love is how it completely plays with our expectations and throws every fan theory out of the window. Just to do something completely different. Rian is not playing it safe and he's all the better for it.

    ★★★★★

    I knew and loved the Guardians even before the first movie was announced. So I was filled with joy and terror when Vol. 1 came along. Could it live up to the characters? It's way to bonkers to work as a live action film.
    But James Gunn delivered a really great origin story for Quill, Gamora, Rocket, Groot and Drax. Vol. 1 does have it's flaws (boring villian like most all Marvel movies, almost too typical origin story setup and…
