Meet Me In St. Louis

A classic (released in 1944) that I had never seen before. Or at least I had no recollection of. It isn’t really a Christmas movie, but it has an important Christmas moment that apparently makes many consider it a holiday film. Overall very cute. 4/5 blocks of ice off the ice truck.

The Witcher, Season 1

I’ve been watching a lot of streamed content as I sort cards in my Magic collection. I just finished season 1 of Netflix’s The Witcher and I quite enjoyed it. It was a little hard to follow as they wove it together, but I am looking forward to season 2. 4.5/5 unusually colored eyes.

Knives Out

What a delightful journey of a movie. Rian Johnson and his superb cast delivered a fantastically enjoyable mystery which taunts us with tantalizing glimpses of the whole story without giving itself away. 5/5 real knives.

They Shall Not Grow Old

I meant to see this in theaters and never got around to it. We decided to watch it last night and the technology is truly astonishing. I know very little about WWI and this provided fascinating insights. 4/5 stars.

Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker

Overall, I enjoyed it. I wasn’t astounded by it, and it falls fairly low on my overall Star Wars rankings. 3/5 lightsabers.

Watchmen

Just watched the pilot of the new series and I find it intriguing. Plus it has Tim Blake Nelson, and he hasn’t had a role I haven’t loved.

Zombieland: Double Tap

This was a great follow-up to the original. Wholesome, with story, world and character development. Also lots of great jokes.

Spider-Man: Far From Home

Tom Holland is a perfect Spider-Man. This movie was described by a friend as a “beach movie” and in many ways I agree. It was a lot of fun.

The Dead Don’t Die

I went expecting something closer to Zombieland, and instead got something more art house and commentary heavy.
