    If you're looking for a dense mystery full of twists and turns, Knives Out isn't it (though it may surprise you more than it did me), but if you want to see a fine ensemble chew the scenery and have fun for two hours, then Knives Out is it. That's why I went to see it, and I was satisfied with what I got.

    An oldie, but goodie - Deathtrap (Michael Caine and Christopher Reeve). I directed the play version about a decade back and the audience loved it.

    Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker

    At times it felt like The Retconning of Skywalker, such time does JJ and the film spend undoing the groundwork laid down by Johnson. As the foundation is upended and replaced, the film frantically begins to establish its own mythology with mixed results.

    There's no denying it has its crowd pleasing moments, and many a great panoramic shots and eye catching battles, but fan service isn't enough to make this installment memorable. The twists and reveals aren't really earth shattering, and although there's no Death Star, JJ once again reaches into his tired bag of tricks for a 'orbiting weapon of mass destruction'.

    With the trilogy now complete, I think Disney should use the hiatus to properly lay out the inevitable next trilogy and form a clear sense of direction before a single scene is shot.

    Sometimes you have to look a little deeper into a film. What you see on the surface isn't usually the only thing a film has to offer. I'm not sure why you would have seen that one. I could have told you it wasn't going to be for you. Did you watch the trailer? A slow-paced, black and white film by the guy who directed The VVitch? That should have been a red flag.

    Fan service seems to sum up the new trilogy. Lack of clear direction/arc for the most recent three is the same thing I'm reading in a lot of reviews.

    Good Time

    Decided to check this out to get me prepped for Uncut Gems. It's a kinetic, neon-filled nightmare that turns the most pedestrian of situations into unbearably-tense filled encounters. Unfortunately, it amounts to little as the film ultimately ends on a whimper. Still, the technical skills at the Sadie brothers' disposal help elevate the film and I'm excited to see how they keep progressing.

    The Lighthouse wasn't around long by me, but I'm eager to see it. Knives Out, too. I just got Spectre from Netflix, so either that or The Irishman, I think, is gonna be my first watch of the new year.

    Uncut Gems:


    I'm not a fan of intentionally shaky camera work, and frenetic claustrophobic cinematography. I understand that these methods were chosen to show the fast paced-in your face lifestyle Adam Sandler lives, but after over two hours I was a bit worn down. This story of a NYC jewelery dealer who is a gambling addict, a philanderer, a cheat, and a liar is of course like watching a train crash. One can't avert their eyes, but you know it's going to end badly.

    For me, what stood out more than what you mentioned, was the sound. It was intentionally "busy" and it got annoying quickly. The scene with him on three telephone lines and the nightclub scene stand out as examples.

This story of a NYC jewelery dealer who is a gambling addict, a philanderer, a cheat, and a liar is of course like watching a train crash. One can't avert their eyes, but you know it's going to end badly.

    For me, what stood out more than what you mentioned, was the sound. It was intentionally "busy" and it got annoying quickly. The scene with him on three telephone lines and the nightclub scene stand out as examples.
    Good Time had the same issue. The blaring music made it difficult to concentrate on what they were saying sometimes and it got obnoxious pretty quickly.

    If you guys like the noisy parts of Uncut Gems, when I get home I'll find some YouTube clips of tea kettles whistling, babies crying and nails on a chalkboard for you. You know, as a late Christmas present.
