    Star Wars

    ★★★★★

    Watched with my 2-year old son. Here are some of his observations:

    - Darth Vader is "sick" (ill)
    - Every planet was "Earth"
    - The Death Star was "Moon" (that's no moon, son)
    - Every spacecraft was a "rocket ship"
    - "The robot (C3PO) walks on 2 legs!"
    - Chewbacca is his favorite character
    - Jawas are scary

  • The Shining

    The Shining

    ★★★★★

    I received a Stanley Kubrick box set for Christmas in 2015. I live in the US but found a great deal on a box set from the UK. The Shining is one of my favorite movies of all time and I just watched the Blu-ray from this box set for the first time.

    The Woman in the Window

    ★★★★

    Although I thought this was related to 2021's The Woman in the Window, turns out the only thing these two movies share is a title.

    A gripping noir/thriller about an accidental murder and it's subsequent investigation. I really liked Fritz Lang's use of clocks to help the viewer track the timeline throughout the movie. A lot has been written about the ending and although I think it's a cheat, it's also masterfully executed from a technical standpoint.

  • Silverado

    Silverado

    ★★★★

    A fun 80's-era Western/Adventure. The core cast of Scott Glenn, Kevin Kline, Danny Glover, and Kevin Costner is great, with Costner being the real standout. The best way I can describe his character is "cowboy Paul Rudd". The supporting cast is also stacked, with too many great names to list, with Lawrence Kasdan directing some great Old West shootouts. Overall, very impressed with Silverado.

    Scarface

    ★★★★★

    The clothing. The cars. The pastels. This movie is cocaine. Is Scarface over the top? Yes. But for Brian de Palma to bring Oliver Stone's violent and excessive script to life, over the top is all we could have asked for.

  • The Lighthouse

    ★★★★½

    I'm not sure what the hell I just watched, but whatever it is, it's amazing.
