    ★★★★½

    US is proof Jordan Peele is the real deal. What a fresh, exciting voice in horror this guy is. I hope he sticks with the genre for a long time, because the genre needs him. Also: Hollywood has SERIOUSLY been wasting Lupita Nyong’o.

    There’s so much I love about this, particularly how Peele balances deeper, cerebral, ambiguous chills with Spielbergian thrills.

    I’m also D R E A D I N G the “plot hole” crowd reaction to this, though, because there’s so much left unsaid. And whenever a movie dares to be equivocal, some people tend to yell “OMG PLOT HOLE!!"

    This movie is not good, but I'm so committed to logging shit I took the time to add it to letterboxd, because it wasn't even on here. YOU'RE WELCOME.

    Jessica Rothe will win an Oscar one day.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    ★★★★

    Defies almost all expectations (and fan theories). A thrilling, emotional and surprisingly VERY funny adventure. I don't know if this is the best Star Wars movie, but Rian Johnson is definitely the best Star Wars director.

    I won't give away spoilers, but there are about 10 moments in this movie tailor-made to make the audience lose their damn minds.
