    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

    ★★★★★

    I received a Kubrick box set for Christmas in 2015. I live in the US and the box set is 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.

Surprisingly, everyone takes the changes in direction and vision with professionalism and grace; it was refreshing. I can imagine that Disney wants to bury this because they don't want the public to have a window into their filmmaking process.

    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.

  • Iron Man

    Iron Man

    ★★★★½
