    The Greatest Showman

    Destined to be a classic for many the whiff of naffness dominates here with iffy tunes and a wandering, incoherent story. Barnum has all his edges polished off in pretty disappointing stuff despite some excellent choreography.

    Just huge fun, huge crazy fun. Rightfully feels like a watershed, great flawed conflicted characters, a satisfying emotional core and brilliant strong women. Oh, the women!

    An incredible balancing act. Darkly funny and completely heartbreaking.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi


    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    No mere nostalgia trip, this is a great Start Wars movie and a glimpse of what the saga can become.

    It doesn't all work, but mostly this soars.

    Also, Kylo = such a great baddie... Adam Driver is just superb.

    Also, also, Carrie 😢😭😭
