Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is the conclusion to the recent trilogy of Star Wars movies. It follows Rey (Daisy Ridley), Finn (John Boyega), and Poe (Oscar Issac) as they are faced with the return of Emperor Palpatine.
Marriage Story is Noah Baumbach’s latest film that follows Nicole (Scarlett Johannson) and Charlie (Adam Driver) as they are going through a divorce.
BlacKkKlansman surrounds Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) as he becomes the first black cop in Colorado Springs. He starts investigating the KKK after seeing an ad in a newspaper. Though he talks to them on the phone, Flip (Adam Driver), is a white cop that meets in the KKK in person. Both cops, whose nationalities the KKK are vehemently against, must play the part of white supremacist to investigate deeper into what the KKK are capable of.
Spike Lee does a great job with this film, though you should have already got from the title, it’s very political. It not only captures the attitudes and political sphere of the 70s but it also reflects modern day. Specifically, it calls out the current President of the United States.
I finally got a chance to see The Last Jedi, and I was a little bit more trepidatious about it once I heard mixed fan reactions to the movie, but overall I liked it!
