Twin Peaks Fire Walk With Me is interesting. It is very bizarre but works with the television series. For a prequel it does it’s job. The acting is great and if you enjoyed the show you will likely enjoy this movie. It is missing a lot of the humor and silly charm. It still somehow works.

Soul was delightful. It is abstract and clever and treats the audience like they are smart enough for deep concepts. It is a lovely tale that takes you on a bizarre journey with images reminiscent of Dr. Suess and the Apple Computer aesthetic. Check it out if you are wanting a truly thought provoking movie experience.

WW84 is a dumb movie. The dialogue is pedestrian. The characters are cartoonish and the CG action makes the movie lack any depth. Nothing felt realistic or threatening. I did find Maxwell Lord compelling at first, but when the movie stopped caring, I did too. I still have no idea why it had to take place in the 80s. I don’t recommend the movie. If it wasn’t on HBO I would’ve been upset to have seen it in theaters.

Happiest Season is a pretty cute Christmas movie. It has real issues in the plot without being too heavy handed. The actors do a great job. The story is a bit silly, as is the conclusion but in terms of holiday movies cheese, it is one of the tamest on the market. It’s worth checking out when you are burnt on on the classics.

Terminator:Dark Fate is okay. The action is fun when they film it so you can see what is happening. If anything this movie is hindered by having past characters return. The story is fast-paced but feels like he same beats as the first and second Terminator movies. It’s a mixed bag that is worth seeing if you are okay with the screwy timeline. At this point, it’s best to embrace the schlock.

The Cheshire Murders is a profoundly dull documentary about a very brutal murder in Connecticut. It is about an hour too long. The details of the crime are very cut and dry and there are no twists or turns to keep me compelled. Give it a miss.
