The cliche "it's so bad, it's good" doesn't apply here. "The Star Wars Holiday Special" isn't enjoyable on any level, campy or otherwise. It's just ugly, painful, and boring.

Although race is a critical element of the production’s DNA, this is first and foremost the story of a remarkable young woman.
For those who can get past the shaky-cam aspect that infects the cinematography, this is an involving look back in time at one of the most significant human endeavors of the last century.

This is the sequel "Halloween" fans have been awaiting for four decades as the slow-burn terrors of 1978 reach out across the years to shock and frighten a new generation.
If there’s a reason to see the movie, it’s Redford, whose charismatic, mature presence argues that age has done nothing to diminish his ability to command the screen.
Unsentimental, non-glamorized, and unclouded by the usual overlay of rose-colored nostalgia, this is a raw but rewarding motion picture.
As an elegy to a perfect fusion of directorial mastery and an actor’s indomitable screen presence, it’s hard to imagine something more memorable.
Gives us a chance to reconnect with characters we fell for in 2004 and discover that, although we may have aged, our affinity for them remains constant.
Although the production is too long and overreaches, it has a bizarre, crazy appeal that’s difficult to shrug off.
A solid follow-up to "The Equalizer" and an effectively understated entry into the 2018 summer movie sweepstakes.
