It’s that time of the year…when I see a lot of movies.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Thank you, Harrison
You owned this remake/retread
A new hope indeed.

Why is Matt Damon
always needing to be saved?
Grow those potatoes.

 

MV5BMjIyOTM5OTIzNV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMDkzODE2NjE@._V1._SX95_SY140_Spotlight

Keaton at the helm
of a newspaper story.
Second chance justice.

 

MV5BMjE0NTA2MTEwOV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNzg4NzU2NjE@._V1._SX88_SY140_Steve Jobs

Walking and talking
can only take you so far.
“Sorry, a system…”

 

MV5BMjIxOTI0MjU5NV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNzM4OTk4NTE@._V1._SX94_SY140_Bridge of Spies

Heroic Tom Hanks
can do no wrong in Berlin.
Nicely made, but yawn.

 

MV5BODg5NDM1MDI4NF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMzg0MzQxNzE@._V1._SX94_SY140_Creed

Sly Stallone can act.
Story is complicated.
You’ll stand up and cheer.

 

MV5BMjE0MDI3NTE5NF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNzI3ODM2NjE@._V1._SX94_SY140_No Escape

It’s not quite Taken.
It’s actually a horror
movie in disguise.

 

MV5BMjI2OTk5MzYyMl5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMzY1MjE3NjE@._V1._SX94_SY140_Youth

Yes, it is precious.
Artsy-fartsy to a fault.
But oh, such beauty.

 

MV5BMjM1NTc0NzE4OF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNDkyNjQ1NTE@._V1._SX90_SY140_Terminator Genisys

This movie is bad.
Please, do not see it, ever.
Not worth the hate-watch.

 

MV5BMTYzMzc5OTkyOV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNzc3OTMyNTE@._V1._SX95_SY140_I’ll See You in My Dreams

A woman in grief.
Two men who bring her love, life.
Leading Blythe, at last.

 

MV5BMzE4MDk5NzEyOV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNDM4NDA3NjE@._V1._SX94_SY140_Brooklyn

Saoirse surely shines
as the heartfelt immigrant
in this gorgeous film.
