    The Invisible Man

    ★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Really well done, terrifying, and timely. The way it connects her haunting to abuse, masculinity, and power was incredible. Reminded me of the way Get Out merged horror with contemporary social criticism. 

    Two changes I would make to elevate it four stars or higher:

    ★★½

    After two decent outings, Brosnan’s Bond goes the way of his predecessors: to increasingly ludicrous villains, and plots that just don’t matter, and women who matter even less (to the movie and to Bond.)

    1. Give Bond an injury. Make him struggle a bit. Make the audience wonder how he will overcome that hindrance. 
    2. Use Judi Dench more. The Craig Bonds took note.

    Alright, I saw this again and I'm happy to report...

    it still stunk.

    Here is a list of things that this movie INTRODUCED to the SW universe:

    Healing people with the force
    Light speed burst jumping
    Stealing/giving life force from one being to another (I guess the same thing as healing, but kinda not really)
    At least six major characters
    Memories that take human form and interact with people
    Strangers that insist on knowing people’s FULL name
    Force Diodes

    You…
