Re: Solo: A Star Wars Story

I enjoyed this simple story the most out of all the Disney Star Wars films.

Of course, that is faint praise as I thought The Force Awakens was derivative JJ trash and The Last Jedi was utterly,...

Re: The Disaster Artist

I'm keen to check this out, have been to a Room screening with Tommy and Greg and it was a blast so this looks interesting.

Re: Star Wars Ep 8

Well, I imagine absolute dollars are what interest Disney executives the most though.

It's a Star Wars film, so that will get people into theatres, but there's only so many times you can do that...

Re: Star Wars Ep 8

TLJ has had the largest first to second weekend drop-off in box-office history.

I really think this film will with time be seen as a critical mistake.

Don't get me wrong, TFA was the narrative...

Re: Star Wars Ep 8

*spoilers*




Really? I found it completely unsatisfying for a number of reasons. Firstly, the 'fight' (if you can call it that) with Kylo was basically a holographic skype call with nothing at...

Re: Star Wars Ep 8

If you didn't like the Death Star appearing twice between Episodes 4 to 6 then I'd give Episode 7 a miss as well;)

Re: Star Wars Ep 8

I think you raise a excellent point about the ideological bias of critics Karsten. The new Star Wars films have a clear left-leaning viewpoint (the writers admit as much) and that tends to get...

Re: Star Wars Ep 8

It's got nothing to do with letting go of the old, I would prefer if the OT characters weren't in this at all.

It's got everything to do with poor story structure and character development.

Re: Star Wars Ep 8

JJ did his one trick 'mystery box' gimmick in Episode 7 and left Rian to figure out what was in the box in Episode 8.

Rian clearly has no idea what's in the box, so rather than explain anything he...

Re: Star Wars Ep 8

To it's credit though, it's better than TFA which I found *abysmal*, but then JJ is returning for the next film so there is no hope here.

Really makes you appreciate how much better George was at...

Re: Star Wars Ep 8

I saw it and was really disappointed, the more I think about it, the more I disliked it.

I agree with Mark Hamill in that every character decision they made regarding Luke in...

Re: Passengers

I enjoyed Passengers a lot, despite catching it really late (partly due to the bad reviews).

The concept was interesting and Chris Pratt was a charming lead, whilst he did the wrong thing you could...

Re: Star Trek: Discovery

I think it started off well with the first two episodes but has been gradually losing its way. At this point the main thing keeping me watching is the production values, which are quite good.

Re: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

The issue just comes down to a lack of story, which in turn is born from a lack of interesting characters.

It's not just an issue in this film, it's an issue in the Force Awakens as well.

To it's...

Re: Trailer for Alien: Covenant

Despite all the issues with Prometheus, I still was interested to see the continued adventures of Dr Shaw and David.

This is because the engineers seemed more interesting than the aliens - they...

Re: Arrival

I enjoyed this film, it was an intelligent piece of sci-fi which is quite rare these days. The concepts are quite interesting, reminded me of bits of Arthur C Clarke novels in areas.

Re: Star Wars: The Force Awakens -contains spoilers

Yeah I just can't connect Darth Vader with Anakin, for me they are like two different characters.

Even when I saw Rogue One recently I thought 'That's Vader, but it's not Anakin'.

Vader always...

Re: Star Wars: The Force Awakens -contains spoilers

The more I think about it, the more I can't get over how bad Force Awakens is.

The plot literally makes no sense if you spend more than 5 seconds thinking about it. None of it makes any sense!!!...

Re: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

I agree that the dialogue and character were dull in R1 and by extension that impacts the story to an extent, since character and story are so intertwined. However, it was still a story that made...

I enjoyed it despite the script, not because of it. I enjoyed it mainly due to Gareth Edwards visuals and the...
