    Identity

    ★★★½

    The big twist is still pretty half-baked and underwhelming, but the great cast, Agatha Christie setup and semi-slasher vibes help keep things interesting. I enjoyed the film more this time knowing the silly twist was coming.

  • The Gift

    The Gift

    ★★★½

    #20thAnniversary A solid little supernatural drama/thriller. Not Sam Raimi's usual horror style but intriguing none the less. Cate Blanchett is fantastic, and it's interesting to see Keanu Reeves and Katie Holmes play against type. The pacing drags a bit in places, but overall it's an undersung little Raimi gem.

    Solo: A Star Wars Story

    ★★½

    As the saying goes: "Just because you can doesn't mean you SHOULD." The biggest issue with SOLO is that it never justifies its existence. Despite some fun scenes, it's ultimately nothing more than a pointless, corporate cash grab with just enough plot threads left open at the end to [presumably] support an even more pointless sequel.

    There are no big plot revelations in this film beyond the obvious, obligatory points. You'll find out how Han got his name (who cares?).…

    ★★★★

    WILD and surprisingly hilarious. Oh and, yeah, preeetty gay. Definitely a favorite from the past decade.
