    My Forbidden Past

    ★★½

    Love the setting of nineteenth century New Orleans, but movies about marital infidelity are usually a turn-off and this is no exception. I do like that it's all from Ava Gardner's perspective and I like the moral journey that she goes on; I just don't dig some of the details along the way that get her to where she needs to go.

  • The Maze Runner

    The Maze Runner

    ★★★★

    I love all the things about this movie: the characters, the actors, the setting, the mystery... even the crazy cliffhanger. But even though I love the cliffhanger, I still knock off a star for not being a complete story. Rewatching so that I can catch up with the new one from this year. If I still love the overall story after that, this one goes up to five stars.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    ★★★★½

    Will probably bump this up a half-star after processing it some more. Definitely a Top Three Star Wars film for me.

  • Manhattan Night

    Manhattan Night

    ★★★

    '40s noir by way of '90s sex thriller. Unfortunately, I only like one of those genres. The mystery is good though and it resolves well with some nice surprises.
