    Bend It Like Beckham

    ★★★½

    One of the most niche movies I've seen with broad audience appeal. Sometimes getting a joke will require you to have lived on a specific street in Leeds from 1998 to 2001 but when it hits, it's fun.

    At the beginning of the movie they say that David Beckham looks like a skinhead, and I will never be able to forget how much he does.

    If I told you something was formulaic you might assume it was bad. But turning lead into gold consistently is formulaic.

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    ★★★½

    Pros:
    - Poe Dameron is hot af
    - Very genuine at times, I got choked up
    - Great arc for Kylo Ren
    - The looming threat felt real and not just another Deathstar (though it still kinda was)
    - Poe is very hot
    - Some characters felt like they've evolved since Episode 8
    - Fun and funny
    - Emperor Palpatine was cool
    - Snokes in a jar
    - Poe Dameron

    Cons
    - Making a dead person look alive technology still…
