Colossal is a creative exploration of alcoholism and abusive relationships that uses Kaiju (and the destruction of Cities) as a representation of the way we feel when making decisions in the darkest moments of our lives. It’s not the light hearted comedy I expected it to be, but it does a great job balancing the heavy topics with humour and an over the top premise that’s a lot deeper than I would have guessed.
Rogue One puts you in the trenches of the Star Wars universe where we finally see the horrors of a galaxy controlled by the Empire from the perspective of the regular people willing to stand up to them. The biggest compliment I can give the movie is how well it nailed the feel of the original trilogy. Not only did it do that, but it was also able to connect the OT to the prequels (and even the cartoons) and made them actually feel like they all exist in the same universe. The characters are all great, the story was good, but my favorite part of the movie was actually seeing all the different types of storm troopers.
The Last Jedi isn’t the best movie in the franchise, but everything with Luke, Rey and Kylo easily make up for all of its shortcomings. Mark Hammil is at the top of his game and steals almost every scene he’s in. The sound design is awesome, the music is fantastic and the visuals are stunning! Moments in the film will stand out as some of my favorite in all of Star Wars. The movie does feel a little long, some of the storylines could have been cut out and I wouldn’t complain. But every choice made by the characters (and some would say by the director) supports the message of the movie. We all make mistakes, even the best of us, It’s how we learn from those mistakes and what we do after they are made that matter.
Solo has some of the best production/costume design I’ve seen in a Star Wars movie. Glover was perfectly cast as Lando and Ehrenreich did well, but was never able to recreate the charm that Harrison Ford brought to the character. Overall I enjoyed the movie however it’s riddled with callbacks and answers to questions that I really didn’t need or want addressed.
