    The Bling Ring

    ★★½

    "The Bling Ring" should've been entirely focused on Emma Watson and I need more performances like this from Emma Watson. It sure has style but that alone couldn't keep momentum going in this movie.

    ★★★

    I don't think J.C. Chandor's style is for me. The film is slow but also has interesting elements. Not my cup of tea. Jessica Chastain rocks though.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    ★★★★★

    "The Last Jedi" still excites me. Every moment of it pulls me in with lush locations and characters. How Rian Johnson expands on the universe moves me. The final shot is full of so much hope and promise of a bright future that I still can't decide if we got. Still through thick or thin I love "The Last Jedi."

    Oh so Céline Sciamma was a master filmmaker long before "Portrait of a Lady on Fire." I too am infatuated with the allure of Adèle Haenel as Sciamma is in this film. She has a pressence that can't be ignored. Some movies just need to be seen to understand the emotional impact. "Water Lilies" is that kind of film.
