I finally watched Solo. I liked it. It was an interesting take on Han's early career.

If I can make one very minor complaint, it's that while Alden Ehrenreich's acting was great, he doesn't look like Han Solo. Ewan McGregor looked like a young Alec Guinness. Donald Glover looks like a young Billy Dee Williams. But Ehrenreich doesn't look like a young Harrison Ford, and throughout the film I had to keep reminding myself that this was the same character.[/rant]

1. Hereditary - 3/5 (Jun 15)
2. Ant-Man and the Wasp - 4/5 (Jul 23)
3. Solo: A Star Wars Story - 4/5 (Dec 25)

I watched so many since the last time I posted that I honestly may forget about some of them.

58. First Man: A. Great movie. Why are people complaining about the flag? Jesus. It was there. Just becuase they didn't show them specifically plant it on the ground. Come on. It's supposed to focus on Neil as a person, like, you know, a biopic.

59. Bohemian Rhapsody: A- Good.

60. Halloween (1978): B+ Classic. The extended edition adds some boring stuff. I really don't recommend the extended edition - it's too slow.

61. Halloween (2018): B+ The best Halloween sequel. Surprisingly good.

62. Bad Times at the El Royale: A- Bit slow at times. Really close to being an amazing movie if it weren't for some slow parts.

63. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: B-. I always hate how this movie starts. They should have reworked the plot. The characters are really fun though.

64. The Crimes of Grindelwald: C+. Too much going on. This makes you regret the first movie and wish they did something different.

65. Dying of the Light: Total failure - Tried watching this with friends one night becuase it looked like it'd be a typical hilarious Nic Cage movie. Instead, it was so dull that we couldn't continue. The funny thing was, my friend's PS3 somehow unplugged itself halfway through the movie and we were like "Welp. Guess that's a sign we should stop watching it."

66. Horror of Dracula: B+. One of my favorite Dracula movies. It was made by Hammer Films. Christopher Lee as Dracula, Peter Cushing as Van Helsing, and Michael Gough is in it too (he was Batman's butler in the Tim Burton films). They were so good in this movie.

67. Frankenstein Must Die: D. A Hammer horror movie. Never saw this one before. Peter Cushing as a sinister Dr. Frankenstein. What could go wrong? Well, everything went south after an uncalled rape scene. Was not expecting that. Everything up until that moment was fine and everything afterwards went to hell and nowhere and all over the place. Weird ending. The monster wasn't even much of a "monster".

68. Bram Stoker's Dracula: B-. Had potential to be amazing but it was too crazy at times. Keanu Reeves trying to be British is awful. At times, scenes were so dark that I had to squint.

69. The Thing from Another World (1959): B+. Classic movie. Never saw it before. I thought the monster would have more screen time though.

70. John Carpenter's The Thing: A. Ahhh, love this movie. Interesting to watch it back-to-back with the original movie.

71. Johnny English Strikes Again: C. Meh.

72. Home Alone: B. Never saw it before. Good one.

73. Spider-man: Into the Spider-verse: A. AWESOME. Really wanted to see it and finally saw it.

I THINK that just about wraps up my year of movies.
