The Shining (1980)

What better way of starting the month of October than by revisiting one of my all-time favorite films. A masterpiece of atmosphere and tension, with excellent performances all around, particularly Nicholson’s, and a chilling, memorable score. My second favorite Kubrick, after 2001.

***** out of *****

‘Kelly Marie Tran: I Won’t Be Marginalized by Online Harassment’… (in her own words)

What did she mean when she said “my real name is Loan”?

Her real name is Loan. I think Kelly Marie is a stage name.

Is <em>Revenge of the Sith</em> the Best or Worst Prequel?
Time

I’m not too sure. ROTS might have the most surface-level entertainment value, but I feel TPM is the most well-made movie of the three. For starters, it’s not a bad looking movie (all the stuff set in space still looks fantastic), and I appreciate its visual continuity with the OT. It also has a superb John Williams score, and its sound design is pretty great as well. Overall, it’s defintely not a very good movie, but it’s got a lot going for it.

Episode IX - Discussion * <strong><em>SPOILER THREAD</em></strong> *

I don’t think it’s gonna happen. They’d surely have released news this big along with the recent cast announcement.

Lucasfilm clearly stated that this is the “final installment of the Skywalker saga”. Singular, not plural. I don’t think they’re all of a sudden going to change this into a two-film ordeal partway through development, especially after the bad rep they’ve acquired after the productions of Rogue One and Solo. They’re gonna take this as smooth as possible and strive towards making a coherent, satisfying conclusion.

Just my two cents.
