    Halloween

    ★★★★½

    THIS is Halloween! after 40 years we finally a worthy companion piece to the original classic. Every scene with Michael Myers has a genuine presence and weight. Jamie Lee Curtis is phenomenal and a total bad ass. The kills are brutal and bloody, the score is one of the years best, and David Gordon Green did a great job as director.

    A Star Is Born

    ★★½

    Feels like it's three hours long. A vapid vanity project that will surly gather awards and album sales as intended. Lady Gaga is honestly pretty good in this and Bradley Cooper is doing his thing.

    At first a famous musician discovers talent, they fall in love, things happen and then it turns into a competition of who can be the most teary. Sure to be a crowd pleaser but i was never really that invested in any of the drama presented.

    Elsie Fisher delivers a very natural performance with lots of subtle charm, she feels like a real teenager because well she is one. I think the best aspect of the film is that it's very innocent but also has an edge, which plays well to teens who…
