Dopamine Coins

Cryptocurrencies, such as bitcoin, as well as the underlying blockchain technology, are things about which I have long been cynical. As far as I can see, they have no value, no purpose and no point other than providing yet another economic bubble, profitable for those that get out fast enough but disastrous for the schmucks … Continue reading Dopamine Coins

Intacto, 2001 - ★★★

Interesting premise, but the film lets itself down somewhat in the execution.

Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron, 2002 - ★★★½

I'm always surprised at just how good this film is. Looking at the individual elements, I would expect to really not like it, but it does work surprisingly well.

It's an impressively effective film about a horse.

Paul added 'Northern Wrath'

Northern Wrath by Thilde Kold Holdt Paul gave 4 stars to Northern Wrath (The Hanged God Trilogy, #1) by Thilde Kold Holdt
Northern Wrath was a bit slow to get started, but once it did it was utterly gripping.

And the ending was both powerful and superb.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, 2019 - ★★★

Spectacularly executed, but ultimately unambitious compilation of the greatest hits of Star Wars.

And bringing Palpatine back is completely nonsensical.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi, 2017 - ★★★★★

The Last Jedi, brilliantly, manages to stay true to the feel of the original Star Wars films while also expanding the saga in a way that opens up all sorts of new opportunities.

This really is the high point of the series.

Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger, 1977 - ★★★

Has it moments but, overall, feels a bit too much like a weak remake of The Golden Voyage of Sinbad.
