    Stargirl

    ★★★½

    Man that Band needs way more practice.
    I had only really ever skimmed reading "Stargirl" then I actually had to read the sequel "Love Stargirl" for school and it was an okay book. I was surprised to see that Disney was adapting the "Stargirl" book as I don't really see "Stargirl" as something that has stayed in the eye of the public.

All five of the actors who played the kids were excellent, particularly Judd Nelson and Molly Ringwald.
    A+

    Hacksaw Ridge

    ★★★★★

    Boy does Mel Gibson know how to make action gut wrenching.
    Not only is "Hacksaw Ridge" a tribute to Desmond Doss and what he accomplished but another reminder at the horrors of war.

    Andrew Garfield delivers a powerhouse performance and I think we will be seeing him come Oscar time. Teresa Palmer and Hugo Weaving are great as Desmond's wife and father and Desmond's fellow soldiers all give great performances especially Vince Vaughn who shows us true dramatic chops and…
