    Maybe I'm grading on a curve here since franchises are swallowing up the movies as we know them, but fuck it. I had a blast with this.

    It keeps you on your toes throughout, the tension level is through the roof, and it takes turns you won't expect. It's also funnier than I expected, albeit in a very dark way.

    Support original movies, people.

    What else can be said that hasn't already been said? It's a stone-cold classic. It generates more suspense and chills than many movies with significantly bigger budgets.

    Thankfully Speilberg never did anything stupid with this like go back and add a realistic CGI shark. The rubber shark here adds to the charm.

    ★★

    It was in trouble right from the opening crawl: THE DEAD SPEAK!

    Yup, the Emperor is back with no explanation and no buildup from the previous movies. He has a massive fleet of Star Destroyers that literally pop out of the ground and represent this movie's Big Boss Battle. It's like fan fiction from a grade schooler.

    The movie has occasional charms (like a solid lightsaber battle between Rey and Kylo Ren and some very funny lines from C3PO), but…

    ★★★½

    It's two-thirds of a great movie and one-third of a mess. First hour or so is fantastic. The Djinn's stories are riveting, and George Miller's sense of spectacle is as strong as ever. But then the main character finally decides to make her first wish and, well.... I'm not entirely sold on it. The movie loses some steam at that point as it switches gears.

    It's worth seeing though just for being different and for actual adults who (gasp!) actually want something original and not just franchises over and over.
