Review: 'LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special'

Lego Star Wars holiday special

All of our favorite characters from the STAR WARS universe unite in “The LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special” airing on Disney+ starting Tuesday, November 17. The first few minutes are a bore, but once Rey starts her journey to revisit past Jedi master and apprentice relationships, the holiday special becomes a blast. It's definitely better than the 1978 special for those who remember that cheesy tv event. Watch video review.

'Rebecca' Movie Review: Armie Hammer and Lily James' Chemistry Is Off The Charts

 Rebecca Netflix movie Armie Hammer Lily James

Based on the 1938 gothic novel by Daphne du Maurier, director Ben Wheatley brings the book to life for the big screen with Armie Hammer and Lily James. However the director has a tall order to fill since Alfred Hitchcock tackled the adaptation with Laurence Olivier and Joan Fontaine in 1940 which led to 10 Academy Award nominations and three wins for Best Picture, Best Cinematography, and Best Actor for Olivier. Luckily I am not familiar with either the book or original adaptation, so this viewer will judge the new Netflix movie on its own merit.
