    My dad and I have often gone back and forth in debate about how certain athletes (particularly soccer players) continue to move from high profile club to high profile club despite any apparent red flags that made them leave the previous one. Ultimately he comes down on the side (not that he agrees with it personally) that talent wins out. If you are truly special at something that not many people are, there will always be opportunities to commercialize that…

    Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery

    ★★★½

    Glass Onion immediately wins points by not feeling like a rehash of the original, and instead forging it's own direction. If nothing else, that alone would get me excited to see what and where Rian Johnson will go to for the next installment. There is so much more to unpack and look into here, that it will almost demand a second and third viewing once it comes onto Netflix. It is definitely funnier than the original, even if some of…

    Does feel like a shame that most of the discourse I've seen surrounding the movie is about how little money this made at the box office. Only focusing on that metric will eventually rob us of movies like this (if it hasn't already).

    Woodstock 99: Peace, Love, and Rage

    ★★★½

    Does a good job of setting up why the eventual outcome was really the only outcome that was ever going to happen. It's honestly dizzying how many issues there were with the festival before they even let people into the venue, let alone after people started getting dehydrated, sexually assaulted, and a million other things that exacerbated the event. It was a powder keg, and they were so ill prepared for what they were about to unleash, and lots of…

    Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

    ★★★★

    Having just finished season one of Andor I thought I should go back and refresh myself with where that series is headed. Focusing on Andor first, I was so so so impressed with the show. It really is Star Wars for adults. I think it's the best Star Wars property that deals with the actual sacrifice and ramifications of rebellion. Eagerly looking forward to season two which I didn't expect given how much I've disliked most of the Star Wars…
