    Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me

    ★★★

    Does not deserve as high of a rating as I've given it, but since I'm a fan of the show, I enjoyed it more than I should have. 

    By all means, this is a mess. The story has some major issues and inconsistencies with the show, the acting is melodramatic in a way that the show never was, and the film's entire reason for existing is questionable. 

    However, this movie gives a new layer to the show: a darker, uglier later to the quirky town of Twin Peaks. The question is, was it really necessary?

    It Comes at Night

    ★★★½

    A tense, well-shot, and, as most people will describe it, confounding film. Deserves a rewatch but doesn't necessarily warrant one.

    Jack Reacher: Never Go Back

    ★½

    Aptly named.

    X-Men

    ★★★★

    Rewatched this today with low expectations and it honestly holds up pretty well. Sure, there are some cheesy late 90s/early 2000s moments here, but overall it's a lot less ridiculous than it could have been.

     It's amazing to note the contrast between this film, the start of the X-Men universe, and Logan, which may be the end of it. There were a few rocky patches, but overall, the evolution has been great.
