This film definitely had a tall order for me to enjoy the film. Rian Johnson's, Last Jedi was a terrible film which then made Rise of Skywalker as a course correction film. JJ did the best he could to correct what was done in the last film but there were somethings that were done that couldn't be prepared. Another problem with the film and has been problem in every film is that Rey is and has been over powered from the beginning. There are things that she can do that would take regular Jedi's, including Luke, years to master. There were villains brought back from past installments because of what Rian Johnsons did to Snoke and the villain that's brought back makes no sense. The villains arc was done and it kind of diminishes what a certain other character meant to the Skywalker saga. Ultimately this film tried be too much, and used easy cash cow gimmicks like nostalgia of old/popular characters to lure people in.
This was such a great breathe of fresh air from all of the superhero/comic book movies, which I love but its always nice to see films like this being heavily marketed like those other movies. I have to say, I came into this movie thinking it was gonna be Clue but with some deviations to make it seem original, but it was certainly not that at all. Through the whole movie, I felt like I knew who the murderer was, then there a point where its switched my mentality of not just who the murderer is but caring for certain characters and hoping they make it out okay. There is social commentary in the film, but not to the extend of taking a side. To me, they made fun of the both extremes (conservatives and liberals). Danial Craig and Ana De Armas were the stand outs. They added tons of funny/comedic moments, but not forcing anything. Craig and Armas also had plenty of dramatic moments that made you care for their characters. To be honest though, this assemble cast did an amazing job. It's defiantly worth a watch but it wouldn't be a film I watch every year.
Finally got to see The Lighthouse and it did not disappoint. It felt like a classic horror, depending on uneasiness and anxious scenes between characters. It didn't need jump scares or a ghost to carry the film. It had amazing dialogue that kept you engaged at all times, while also providing some comedic parts as well. To also shoot the film in black and white, and adding in grain to make it look like a classic horror film was genius. There a lot of shots and shadow positioning that made me feel like I was watching a Alfred Hitchcock movie, There were some scenes that were a little off putting or would defiantly make someone feel very uncomfortable but it was something that you can overlook. William Defoe and Robert Pattinson are great! This film is worth seeing in theaters, and it is probably my favorite horror film this year.
Didn't know what to expect from this film. The trailers didn't interest me and seemed more like a Shakespearean play which is typically not down my alley, but I was dead wrong. This movie is great and it is an excellent drama. It is defiantly a slow burner which leads to a great third act and pays off but it may be too slow for some people. There were a couple of dull parts in the film but nothing too bad. Overall, I was very surprised by this film and think its worth look.
Very good sequel to an iconic film. This movie stands on his own and doesn't heavily rely on homages from The Shining to succeed. Ewan McGregor does a great job as Danny Torrance, and his character development is great. Other characters in the film were great as well that were developed well. Overall, it's a great film but defiantly not as good as The Shining. Defiantly worth seeing in theaters.
