Midway tells the story of the battle of Midway, duh. However, Midway is different from Pearl Harbor which focus around a boring love story. Midway presents only the real history and nothing superfluous. A true story of how American exceptionalism and heroism defeated the Japanese Empire through brains and bronze. Even though this was created by a Hollywood that, for the most part, hates America, this film contains a large amount of American patriotism, however it is dedicated to both American and Japanese sailors who died in the battle (kinda cringe). All the ships and airplanes are accurate, they did a great job on this film. Would highly recommend!

1917 is a solid WWI film. It doesn’t have as many cool action scenes as other war films, but it does have several good sequences. The film has a couple of plot twists and includes an unexpected and inglorious death of one of the main characters that reminds the viewer how quickly and randomly someone could die in the first world war. The film did go out of its was to include as much diversity as possible for a WWI film by inclusion Sikh Indian soldiers fighting along side the British.

I absolutely love this one! It’s a light film noir that takes place in 1940s L.A. and mixes live-action and animation. It is incredibly well done and it’s awesome seeing so many beloved classic Warner Brothers and Disney characters on the same screen. Bob Hoskins plays the lead and gives a perfect performance. I’ve watched this one dozens of times since I was a kid and it never fails to keep me entertained and delighted.

A documentary about girls getting into the porn industry. Pornography has become so common, accepted, and even celebrated in our society when it’s been doing massive harm to us all and exploits women in the worst ways possible. This film centers on a few girls in particular, and while there’s plenty of sad and disturbing moments, it could be a lot worst, showcasing the true horror a lot of girls involved in porn go through. Although the subject matter is very graphic, there’s no shots of anything too graphic, just some brief T&A. I’d recommend this to anyone one who ever watches porn and also to teens who will no doubt be exposed to porn. This might be a good starting point to scare anyone looking to go into the industry, and guilt anyone that watches porn.

Although this is one of the weaker films in the franchise there’s still a lot to like here. It does move along at a leisurely pace with lots of shots showing off the scenery, so you have to be in the mood for that sort of thing. The story is good, but when compared to other Star Trek stories, it’s mediocre. The score by Jerry Goldsmith is top of the line. And it’s awesome what this film meant, reuniting the series cast and reinvigorating the franchise. If you’re looking to get into Star Trek movies this might not be the place to start, you could skip it and go straight to Wrath of Khan (1982).
