‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ far from least

There are few films as difficult to review as a “Star Wars” movie. There’s such a fine line that needs to be walked with regards to the narrative; no one wants to be responsible for spoiling any aspect of such an eagerly-anticipated cinematic experience. However, you also want to be able to convey your feelings about the movie in a manner that is both engaging and accurate.

We’ve arrived at the end of another year, a year of films good, bad and in-between.

That means it’s time for a look back at what 2017 has wrought in terms of cinema. These lists – both best and worst – are accurate as of press time, though there are some highly-regarded movies that I simply haven’t yet had a chance to see. I imagine that films like “The Shape of Water,” “The Post,” “The Florida Project,” “The Disaster Artist” and “Call Me By Your Name” – just to name a few – would likely compete for spots on this list.

(Note: “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” probably warrants inclusion here, but I figure the massive review elsewhere in this week’s edition will serve to make clear my big feelings about that particular offering.)

And again – there’s no denying the subjectivity of lists such as these. In truth, things could break very differently depending on my mood when asked. Still, to my mind these are good, representative lists of movies that you should either a) see as soon as possible, or b) avoid at all costs.

Celebrity Slam - A better Bieber?

It’s that time of year where people will sometimes find themselves reflecting on the good things in their lives. The things for which we are grateful. The things that brighten our days.

Here at Celebrity Slam, Justin Bieber is one of those good things. Well – he used to be, anyway.

Kibbles and Picks 2017 – Week 15

The struggle continues.

Thanks to a 10-6 record in Week 14, I’ve sliced one game from Stella’s lead. She went 9-7, which means that her advantage is a still-daunting five games with just three weeks (counting this one) left. We’re in the home stretch – I’m running out of time to take my shot.

I’ve got seven games where I can potentially make up some ground here in Week 15. It’s a chance to make a huge move. Conversely, Stella can put this thing out of reach. Most likely, we’ll come down somewhere between the two extremes.

Stories of loss are difficult to tell. Finding ways to convey the notion of grief without succumbing to sentimentality or devolving into the maudlin – particularly on-screen – can prove trying to even the most accomplished filmmaker.
