    Truth or Dare

    ★★★

    Maybe I should start by mentioning that Heather Langenkamp is in this, which is always a nice addition.
    It's ridiculous how many films are named Truth or Dare. Now, the 1986 horror film was pretty damn entertaining. Haven't seen it since I was a teenager, but I do have the VHS somewhere... Watch that one!
    Back to THIS movie... In the grand scheme of things, it's bad. Syfy put out a lot of generic horror films around Halloween this past…

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

    Initially, I had no interest in seeing this film because I couldn't give a rat's ass about gambling. This doesn't really have much to do with poker as it does with pushing themes like resourcefulness and the perseverance one needs when the cards are stacked against you in life.

    ★★★★½

    I grew up with these films and wasn't disappointed like others seem to be. The themes of resistance and hope are stronger than ever in this one. Luke and Leia together was a beautiful thing. We learned much more about the power of the Force. This felt right. It sucks that these themes are still so incredibly relevant right now. Sure, a few things were not addressed (which probably will be at a later time), but there are so many nods and connections to the originals that for anyone to say it's ruining their childhood is just plain silly. Don't fight each other. Fight tyranny, man.
