    Mothra vs. Godzilla

    ★★★½

    First of the Showa films other than the original that I've seen. Boy, is that a tone shift! Some weird dead ends in the script, but I figure pointing them out is besides the point. It is fun.

  • Blood Quantum

    Blood Quantum

    ★★★

    Well someone remembered that zombie movies need to mean and dark as fuck.

    This and The Body Remembers... having the same song over the closing credits is a parallel I did not anticipate.

    The Accountant of Auschwitz

    ★★★★

    I totally get it if you don't think you need to see yet another film about the Holocaust, but this one genuinely has some new things to say. The subjects really grapple with what is trying to be accomplished with war crimes trials. Emotional, but also very thought provoking.

  • Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    ★★½

    It's fine I guess. A big let down of course.

    Probably what we should have expected from JJ Abrams the first time instead of the pleasant surprise of TFA. So many McGuffins!
