    Star Wars

    ★★★★½

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

    C3PO and R2D2's adventures is a movie that tells the story of two robots and their significant role in saving the world. Chock-full of charme, this movie (that started an insane franchise) manages to create a universe full of unique races and species, characters with lots of personality (and also, Luke) and a world that just feels vivid and living. Feeling a bit more lighthearted throughout than people give it credit for, it's simply entertaining.
    On the topic of lightheartedness…

  • Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby

    Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby

    ★★★★½

    Great comedy. Big props for getting actual NASCAR commentators, and heck, even Dale Jr. himself to show up. Generally also doesn't really portrait the sport as anything it isn't - except obviously the comic exaggarations and stuff that made sense for the story. (And the strange downshifting in the middle of a Super Speedway.) Story itself might not be something super special, but does it really need to? Very enteratining movie throughout.

  • Green Book

    Great road movie of a black man in the 60s touring the South.

  • Hot Shots!

    Hot Shots!

    ★★★★½

    Great slapstick, funny jokes.

  • Gone in 60 Seconds

    Gone in 60 Seconds

    One of the most amazing car chase scenes in film history. 45 minutes of a beautiful Mach 1 Mustang jumping, drifting and hooning around.
