    Return of the Jedi

    The third act is some of the best of Star Wars (and I personally love the Palace sequence, even as it drags a bit.) However, ewoks have become less and less cute and more and more clearly a prequel-era kind of racism. Making me realize Lucas had far more hands in this than one might realize. Easily the worst of the originals.

    I miss Carrie Fisher more and more with every passing film.

    He's a master. This is one of his masterworks. Easily the best film of the year, and easily top 5 of his features. This just needs a rewatch for the 5 stars. I loved every minute of this. Every ounce of humor, every crumb of pain, and every sense of gangster-style remorse. This was perfect. Thank you for not letting me down, Marty.

    Baumbach’s best. 

    Yeah, Scarlett has made some weird comments recently but I’m pulling for her and Adam to win now. 

    There’s more personal thoughts that I feel like I should put in, but I’d like to leave it at that.
