Movie Rewatch Week!
I've seen and reviewed these movies before, but now I've seen and reviewed them again!
The Big Short - ★★★★☆
Having read some of the source material in between viewings, I'm even more impressed with the adaptation. This movie's got my vote for a screenplay Oscar.
World of Tomorrow - ★★★★★
Dope - ★★★★☆
Still a lot of fun. Those scenes with the copped jokes really stand out as jarring though. Maybe even more this time.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens - ★★★★★
Also still lots of fun. I really like the shuggoth sequence on Han's freighter.
I think it's interesting that this is the first time in Star Wars history that the story of future films will be built on reveals instead of retcons. We'll look back at Han's reactions and asides the way we review Obi-Wan's carefully wording and meaningful looks, and this time it will be possible that they were intentional.
