    Silent Night, Deadly Night

    ★★★

    This movies is insane! Sometimes movies get protested unjustly, but I think this one may have deserved it. It is very mean spirited even for a slasher movies. There are two attempted rapes in the movie! TWO! It sort of lacks what generally makes slasher work, but I can honestly say there is no slasher like it. I liked it, but it is not for yearly viewing on Christmas.

    I am not sure I have the words to say how much I loved this movie. It is easily the best Star Wars film since Empire Strikes Back.

    Mayhem

    ★★★

    A company faces a quarantine after a viral outbreak, but this particular virus causes loss of impulse control in the infected, just in time for a wronged employee to exact his revenge on those responsible. This premise of this one feels familiar as the two main characters have a hit list and battle floor to floor, but the performances from Steven Yeun and Samara Weaving. Even as they are doing horrible things, they are able to make the audience root for them. This one doesn’t really bring anything new to the table, but it enjoyable and entertaining.

    I had heard that this was the funniest Marvel movie, and although I’m a huge comedy fan, I did not know how that would work with in the context of the previous Thor movies. The answer to that is extremely well. The humor never feels out of place, and it actually enhances the experience. I have liked all of the previous Thor movies, but they were the ones I liked the least among the MCU films. I would, however, put this one near the top along side Captain America: The Winter Soldier. I hope we see more Marvel films like this.
