I only like two Terrence Malick films: THE THIN RED LINE and THE NEW WORLD. The trailer for his latest:
In this trailer for THE RISE OF SKYWALKER, C-3PO states, “Taking one last look sir, at my friends.”
One of the main problems with THE FORCE AWAKENS and THE LAST JEDI is the lack of chemistry within the current batch of rebels. I don't buy them as pals forged in a crucible. How do you bond characters with wafer-thin characterisation?

LE MANS '66 / FORD V FERRARI ★★★☆☆
D: James Mangold (Logan, The Wolverine, Knight and Day, 3:10 to Yuma, Walk The Line, Identity, Cop Land).
S: Christian Bale, Matt Damon, Jon Bernthal, Josh Lucas, Tracy Letts, Caitriona Balfe.
LE MANS ’66 – UK title,
FORD V FERRARI – USA title.
How do you make a 24-hour car race interesting? The answer here, only sporadically. Bar Christian Bale's lines, the dialogue is basic. The film evolves from the concerning to the almost coldly critical. The concept had potential not matching the end result.

The evaluation of a film
Verb, "to filmaluate”:
To evaluate a film
I am well aware how difficult it is to make a film, put on a stage play, create a television show, write a novel, let alone make something of note. (That appreciation doesn’t stop me from having high standards though.)
