    Task 12. A movie with an event or detail that reflects your life experience (anything goes, big or small)*How does seeing this element of your life reflected make you feel? Does it feel accurate to your experience?

    If you’re going to make a sad, gay teen movie, this is the way to go! Even though it’s sad, it doesn’t feel hopeless like some other gay movies. The character of Wilder played by Aliocha Schneider is…

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    ★★★★★

    Is this the best Star Wars in the series? Possibly. I have to rewatch Solo (which I proclaimed to be my favourite last year) to know for certain, but I’m leaning towards yes. The Last Jedi is an amazing Star Wars movie that subverts all expectations and delivers us something unique and breathtaking. Each character goes down a path that I was not expecting. Luke being selfish and beaten. Leia getting to utilize the potential of her Jedi abilities. Poe…

    This movie is so wack, the plot with the 5 people in their survival of the fittest test is really lame and only has one good gore moment. Plus plot wise, it really doesn’t play into a whole lot, and is just there to up the body count. With Hoffman and Strahm, we get a cat and mouse game, but one that just ends with no satisfaction. Maybe the movie series shouldn’t kill off everyone all the time.

    ★★★★

    The moment when Mr. Tibbs slaps Endicott back must be considered one of the best slaps in movie history and was such a satisfying moment against someone as bigoted and criminal as Endicott. The murder mystery isn’t the highlight of this movie, that’s the characters, but it still provides some thrilling moments like the autopsy and a car chase. Performances here from Poitier and Steiger are both fantastic, it’s a shame Poitier didn’t even get an Oscar nomination for his work in this movie.

    ★★½

    This is a frustrating doc in a lot of ways. It focuses a lot on these 3 families, and each of them have their own tragic backgrounds about why they fled to Sweden. We learn about their kids having Resignation Syndrome, but that’s about it. Their characters are defined by this syndrome that is starting to effect more and more kids. The doc decides to show a narrow focus of it, and there was an opportunity to do a deeper…

    I did not like this very much. The animation style is neat and it’s got great sound design, but the camera work was odd and out of place. The plot is barely recognizable and I never got a sense for the world the short was in. It’s my least favourite of all the Oscar nominated shorts so far.
