    Cliffhanger

    ★★★½

    (B)  This might be the first full on classic Stallone action movie I've seen. I totally get it now.

    Star Wars: The Force Awakens

    ★★★★★

    (A+)

    Disclaimer: I'm not a big enough fan to get wrapped up in the minutiae and put the magnifying glass on this.

    BUT as a person who has seen all the ones from the 70s/80s (at least once) and none of the ones from the 90s, I found this thoroughly enjoyable and incredibly true to the flavor of the originals. I thought it did a great job of incorporating the core elements Lucas brought to the big screen (early on) and updating it, without a heavy hand, with modern cinematic techniques.

    Definitely worth seeing in the theater - it will give you feels.
