    The Last Reunion

    ★★★½

    I expected a silly B movie about revenge, but got a decent drama about drunk elderly WWII vets dealing, and not dealing, with their individual traumas caused by shared war atrocities. A few good performances for this type of production, and the scenes with a broken and remorseful Philip Baker Hall were genuinely moving.
    And then once in a while, Leo Fong comes in, beats people up awkwardly, and yells “BUSHIDOOO!” All in all, pretty good stuff.

    Speak No Evil

    ★★★½

    Like one of the better Marvel movies: an unoriginal and predictable story, told in an effective and skillful way.

    If you’ve seen psychological horror movies before, there’s not much new to gain here, however, it does it’s job well in what it sets out to do. A very uncomfortable and unpleasant watch, even if you’re a connoisseur of this type of horror.

    One of my favorites of this year! I was fascinated, provoked, moved, and repulsed, and I loved every second. This is the kind of movie I need once in a while to be reminded of the magic of cinematic storytelling. Go watch it! ❤️

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    ★★★½

    The feeling of oldschool Star Wars magic is back in "The Last Jedi". Callbacks and parallels to the original trilogy feel less in-your-face here than in "The Force Awakens", and more like a continuation of that same universe.

    I loved everything involving Rey and her personal development during the movie - her storyline is definitely the best aspect of the movie. However, I didn't really care about the adventures of Finn. It seemed like they didn't know what to do…
