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.


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.


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.
