    El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie

    ★★★½

    Fans of the show who love the big exciting moments like the finales of seasons 4 and 5 are going to be disappointed that El Camino is a slow and relatively small scale production. The biggest action scene in the film is a contained Mexican standoff that lasts all of two minutes.

    What makes this work is Aaron Paul’s terrific work as Jesse Pinkman. He truly elevated the material and makes for an extremely compelling protagonist. The directing and cinematography…

    Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

    ★★★

    Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is the first in a line of Star Wars prequels, telling the story of how the rebel alliance obtained the plans to the Death Star at the start of the original 1977 film.

    Rogue One is an entertaining movie. Everyone in the cast does a good job, led by a solid performance by Felicity Jones. The visual effects are stunning and flawlessly rendered. Director Gareth Edwards knows how to depict scale, making the Death…
