The Witch (2015) Anya Taylor-Joy, Kate Dickie, Ralph Ineson. A New England folktale. Horror. Decent horror. 4.5/5

Thororoughbreds (2018) Olivia Cooke, Anya Taylor-Joy, Anton Yelchin (his last film before he died in 2016). Thriller. Kinda boring but stylish. 3.5/5

Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) Up there with The Empire Strikes Back as one of the best of the saga. 5/5

The Hoax (2006) Richard Gere, Alfred Molina, Stanley Tucci. When you don't think he'll dig himself any deeper, he goes and digs himself deeper. The movie about the fake autobiography of Howard Hughes. 3/5

Phantom Thread (2017) Daniel Day-Lewis, Vicky Krieps. (DDL announced his retirement after this film was made.) Set in the 1950s, a famous dressmaker woos a waitress much younger than himself. Long and drawn out and mildly interesting with an unbelievable ending. You may wish you'd spent your time doing something else.

House of Strangers (1949) Edward G. Robinson, Susan Hayward, Richard Conte, Efrem Zimbalist, Jr. Director: Joseph L. Mankiewicz. A self-made banker raises his sons in an atmosphere of hatred to instill in them grit sufficient to face life, but it ends mostly in disaster. A sort of fun film noir. Nobody talks like this in real life.
