    National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

    β˜…β˜…

    I really wanted to enjoy this but it felt lifeless to me. It had no charm, no humour, no Christmas cheer. They were all boring and had nothing to work with.

    The Shop Around the Corner

    β˜…β˜…β˜…

    Two employees at a store who happen to dislike each other are writing letters to a secret admirer only to soon realize they're writing to each other and falling in love. As clichΓ© and tired as this rom com setup might be now, James Stewart and Margaret Sullavan make it every bit charming, magical and romantic. They make it feel new and add elements which make it its own thing.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    This was so grand in scale, action, drama, comedy and atmosphere. Every one is on top form and it was spectacular.

    A Star Is Born

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    This remake of the 1937 A Star is Born packs more talent and emotion than before. One fading and aging movie star named Norman Maine played by James Mason helps another hopeful star blossom named Esther Blodgett ( later changed to Vicki Lester ) played by Judy Garland.  
    Cukor directs Garland to new heights as she sings and acts with every breath and every gusto, culminating in a huge talent that can't be replicated. 
    James Mason works well with her…
