    ★★★★★

    This movie is perfect. The Empire Strikes Back, The Dark Knight, T2 are perfect textbook examples on how to advance a franchise and craft sequels.

  • Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    ★★★★½

    Creepy cults, gothic horror elements, ancient evil, epic battles, startling revelations, doomed romance, this is the most fairy tale centric of the trilogy and dammit I’m here for it. So much of this feels tailor made for me! A stellar end to the trilogy! Thank you J.J.!

    Am legit depressed that so many don't share the same excitement. Like super depressed.

    ★★★

    Sonic does for Olive Garden what Power Rangers did for Krispy Kreme.
    The movie is fun. Nothing groundbreaking and not the irritating mess I thought it was going to be. If nothing else it reminded me of how much I miss Jim Carrey and man was great to see classic Carrey.

    Also kudos for having a Sonic movie where a super speeder rides passenger throughout the movie and have it work.

    ★★

    Such a good looking remake that takes an incredibly cartoonish and sleazy direction as opposed to the cleverly crafted original that actually tackled issues from the era. Substitutes creativity and suspense for hyper violence and gross out effects for cheap shock value. But hey, it’s better than the 2019 film.

    ½

    Astonishingly awful. It’s the equivalent of being one of the pandering faith based film, but for the secular left. In its last 15 minutes, it decides to pull supernatural gobbledygook out of its ass.

  • The Raid 2

    The Raid 2

    ★★

    There was beauty in the simplicity of the original, that has been replaced by an needlessly overlong and bloated sequel. In trying to outdo himself, Gareth Evans cracks under the weight of his own ambitions.
