    ★★★½

    The Ron Says: Pablo Larraín's Jackie is one of those films that's all about the lead performance.  Natalie Portman is front and center as Jackie Kennedy and she's brilliant.  Her performance is so powerful it's literally hard to focus on other aspects of the film.  Quality is there throughout, Portman just commands the screen in a career best performance.

    If you are wondering why I didn't go higher than 3.5 stars it's simple, it's not a film I think I'll ever revisit.  A wonderful performance and I learned about Jackie Kennedy.  Now I'm good.

    ★★★

    The Ron Says: I really enjoyed the first two films of the rebooted Star Trek franchise.  They got me into Star Trek when I wasn't a fan at all before that.  The third installment Star Trek: Beyond is a step down from the previous two films.  Justin Lin, who is probably best known for directing several of the Fast & Furious films steps into the director's chair for this one and the results are mixed.  He obviously knows action, and most…

    Fucking brilliant!

    Looper is easily the best film I've seen this year! I loved everything about it! I was in awe from start to finish. The directing, performances, and plot are all top notch. Pierce Gagnon basically steals the show as Cid with the best child performance I've seen since Haley Joel Osment in The Sixth Sense. I teared up at one point because I was so happy with what I was seeing. I can't recommend this film highly enough and I think most people will love it.
