    ★★★

    This "requel" felt somewhat satisfying through the first two acts providing an ample amount of callbacks and connecting it to the original while still capturing the less serious and slightly irreverent tone that made the rest of the franchise entertaining for non horror fans such as myself.

    I wasn't into some of the new cast members performances but am also unsure how much of that was by design. I recognize the director may very well have been asking for some…

    The Tragedy of Macbeth

    ★★★

    Considering I am a total philistine and have always struggled with all things Billy Shakes, this film did not start out particularly well for me. The only Shakespeare I have ever read by choice was King Lear a couple years back when I was determined, for albeit a short time, to expose myself to more of his work.

    Many years ago I tried to learn an instrument and had no trouble quickly saying out loud what each note was on…

    ★★★½

    It is easy to recognize Quincy Jones contribution to modern culture with his long spanning and diverse body of work across many mediums, however when his career is laid out in front of you, all at once, the immensity of the stamp Mr. Jones has left on this country becomes overwhelming.

    This documentary traces Quincy Jones career from his start while simultaneously following him currently, as he battles health issues and works on producing the Smithsonian African American History Museum's…

    Star Wars: The Clone Wars

    ★★½

    The plot was engaging and felt like any other Star Wars story, which is meant in a somewhat positive way, however the dialogue, and in particular the way the voice work was edited, sounded pretty bad.

    While feeling like a Star Wars live action story is good in a "stick with what works" kinda way, later movies, and now shows, can walk the line of feeling repetitive or unoriginal at times. It was also impossible not to get baby Yoda…

    Kill Bill: Vol. 2

    ★★★★½

    Kill Bill clearly works better as one complete film but when separating them I rate volume two just slightly lower. While still an excellent film on it's own, as well as a totally satisfying conclusion, volume two does lose some of the energy that made volume one an all time favorite of mine.

    ★★★

    This white knuckle thriller was definitely entertaining and had an easy time holding my attention despite a fairly unoriginal concept overall.

    Alexis Louder was very good as Officer Young but Toby Huss definitely takes the MVP here, easily leaving the biggest mark on this film, killing it every second he appears on screen. 6.5/10
