3/4 37% Downhill (2020) I cannot get angry or feel let down by what Downhill is not (most obviously that it isn't as deep or as profound as Force Majeure was). I can only judge the film for what it actually is.‐

1.5/4 52% Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) [This] is the first time I feel like The Force is no longer with the franchise and the Darkside of corporate cookie-cutter greed has proven to be victorious.‐
