    Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith

    ★½

    21/100

    Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith is probably my least favorite film in the whole Star Wars franchise.

    It had the unbelievably difficult task of tying all the previous films together. It had to take all the plots introduced in the prequels to all the well-known plots of the originals. To say it faced an uphill battle would be an understatement, but given the stake of this film, and the importance it would hold to the…

    300

    ★★★★

    80/100

    300 is a homo-erotic action film adapted from the graphic novel of the same name directed by Zack Snyder. This film also gets the title of the first R-rated film I ever saw in theaters.

    You can tell that Snyder went the route of style over substance, because 300 is a spectacle on the eyes. The cinematography alone will keep you invested, you honestly could pause the film at any moment and that still would make a gorgeous photograph…
