    Well I suppose I better call my 86 year old mother now.

    That is, after I dry my eyes.

    I wish that all future sequels aren’t just money grabs.

    The Lighthouse

    ★★★★

    Filmed in black and white, along with a small aspect ratio, this art house horror film isn’t for everyone. 

    I can only think of a few  films had me reaching for my Greek Mythology book as well as my Art History  textbook once the movie was over. 

    The claustrophobic atmosphere, the gloomy daily toil, and the oppressive sound design all pack a punch. 

    If this is playing near your town- seek it out. Being trapped in a theater is a much better experience than watching this at home or on a plane.

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    ★★★½

    When something is directed and/or written by J.J. Abrams, you can expect two things. One: you won't be bored. Two: the fans will be serviced. 

    As someone who saw the original Star Wars in the theater as a small child, I can say I was entertained. Was it the best movie in the franchise? Hardly.

    A few too many Mary Sue moments, but it was better than The Last Jedi. Then again, so was Police Academy 6.
