Star Wars Rise of Skywalker - 7/10

I didn't hate it as much as I expected to, but I didn't like it that much either. Don't want to spoil the movie for amyone else so I'll just leave it at that. :[

It just felt like they didn't know what they wanted to do with the movie.

The plot is so stupid, it's a bloody treasure hunt. Find the ally contact (Lando), to find the dagger, to find a programmer to unlock C3PO, to find the translated coordinates, to find the wayfinder, to find the coordinates to the uncharted region, to find Palpatine, to find a way to stop the Death Star Destroyer fleet.

The only thing saving this movie, is the fact that they loaded it with original trilogy nostalgia:
- Palpatine's return
- Lando cameo
- Death Star wreckage
- Luke & Leia force ghosts
- Luke pulling his old X-wing out of a swamp ala Yoda
- Han cameo
- Han saying "I know."
- Ewok cameo, including Wicket
- Skywalker farm on Tatooine, watching the twin suns


Agreed, the nostalgia was one of the only redeeming parts of the movie IMO.
I got goosebumps as soon as I saw Leia :wow: It's so off-putting seeing someone in a movie when you know they've passed away lol
Also I HATED that the SJW corners of the Internets got their panties all in a bunch because Rose (I cba to remember the actress's name) only had a couple scenes in the movie. It's like...relax, people. She wasn't even all that integral to the plot lol.

Yeah It Chapter 2 was like a 4/10 for me. CG scary monsters in movies are boring. The first It wasn't too bad though.

The Lighthouse 9/10. This was my favorite movie of 2019. Willem Dafoe is amazing, especially the over the top "Hark!" scene. Funny, tense, beautifully shot. I dunno why I never fully get stupid artsy games like Inside and Journey but love crap like this.

Harsh. I thought it was decent. Much better than I ever thought a live action Pokemon film could be.

I mean I'm rating stuff to my own tastes. I have no patience for anything not to my tastes anymore. My adult life is slipping away!

Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker - 8/10
I actually enjoyed it more than I thought I would. The movie has some issues, but it ultimately felt like a nice conclusion to the trilogy to me.

I felt like the sequel trilogy was underwhelming overall, and this movie did nothing to elevate it for me.

The best way I can look at it, is that the trilogy was designed for a new generation of kids to get into the Star Wars universe that previous generations have loved, while keeping enough nostalgia to keep those of the Lucas films interested to watch together. In that light, I can accept it.

But it was more of a 5/10 in enjoyment for me. I would say there were more scenes that I was wowed by in The Last Jedi, even though the plot of that film irritates me a lot.

Toy Story 4: 9/10

Unnecessary sequel considering how TS3 ended, but still great nonetheless. :yes:

Uncut Gems 8/10 :yes: So much chaos, noise, people talking over one another. This movie is nonstop stress, but I loved it. I can't believe this didn't get a best picture nomination and The fucking Irishman did :[

I think Uncut Gems and The Lighthouse are my favorite movies of last year, even more than Parasite. Am I going to start watching the Spirit Awards. Am I a hipster now.

Parasite - 8 or 8.5/10 - although it was quite predictabe apart from one plot twist (and I should've seen it coming), I thoroughly enjoyed it. Funny and no dull moments.
