    Red Rocket

    ★★★

    Baker is a master of direction/ cinematography, but this story feels a bit repetitive after a while.

    He captures little moments that no one else would ever think of, which he did very well in The Florida Project.

    But the key difference between that film and Red Rocket is that in The Florida Project, the story was about good people in a sad, unfortunate situation. Red Rocket, however, follows a manipulative, selfish person in an unfortunate situation.

    ★★★

    The Return of the Living Dead (Dir. Dan O’Bannon, 1985)

    When audiences think of zombies, they instantly picture undead civilians who crave brains. While that depiction is regarded as played-out in the present day, in 1985, it had never been done before, at least until the release of The Return of the Living Dead.

    While watching it, Dan O’Bannon’s film felt like a somewhat enjoyable, yet insignificant zombie flick, but, historically, it actually is an important one. This was the…
