Last Night in Soho (2021)

  • An aspiring fashion designer is mysteriously able to enter the 1960s, where she encounters a dazzling wannabe singer. However, the glamour is not all it appears to be, and the dreams of the past start to crack and splinter into something far darker.
  • This was actually better than I expected a murder mystery with a little Sixth Sense and Sucker Punch thrown in. It’s always nice to watch a movie that’s not tied to a franchise or some pre-existing material. I think it was supposed to be scary, which it wasn’t, and the twist was pretty good but the ending felt anticlimactic. A fun watch with some solid performances, but I’ll probably never watch it again. 6/10

Pig (2021)

Nicholas Cage is a former chef turned recluse in the woods when his prized truffle hunting pig is stolen. I thought this was about to be the most unique John Wick parody ever but it never got anywhere close to the fighting I thought it would be. Solid start but the second half fizzled out for me.

5.5/10

Last Night in Soho (2021)

An introverted gal moves to London to attend fashion school and rents a room from an old lady where she begins to become intertwined with the spirit of a singer in 1967 London when she falls asleep. Edgar Wright is hit or miss with me but I enjoyed this film; decent twist, and moves along at a good pace. This is a pretty decent soundtrack to boot, give this a watch.

7/10

Return of the Jedi (1983)

Rewatched this with my daughter who didn’t dig this as much as other Star Wars films. I had this ranked as my 2nd favorite of the franchise because the whole Luke/Vader relationship is so powerful and goddamn, the Emperor is a fantastic villain. Although are moments that drag in this film like some of the scenes in Endor. The final battle is still so goddamn great but it’s lost a LITTLE steam.
