The Last Jedi: A Force for good or evil?

2 comments

 

As with most Star Wars films the hype for the last Jedi was out of this world (if you pardon the pun). However there has been many a time when hyped up films do not live up to their expectations. As The Last Jedi hit our screens, I, like many fans, was getting ready to sit through The Force Awakens and when midnight had struck The Last Jedi.

 

In this context I feel that the fact I watched The Last Jedi so closed to a recap of The Force Awakens, highlighted the major problems and corny moments that could normally be ignored. Where The Force Awakens set ups questions ready to be answered and characters with backstories waiting to be explored, The Last Jedi seems to answer them in ways that disappointed me as a Star Wars fan.

 

One of the major things that I am hoping isn't true is #SPOILER# Rey being just a nobody born from scavenger parents who sold their daughter to a trader. I feel that this part of the film, especially with the whole Snoke thing was set up to be a double bluff...at least that's what I'm hoping. I guess we'll find out if there is more depth to this new trilogy than meets the eye in the third instalment, until then The Last Jedi sits in the middle ground, it is the Lando of the new trilogy, we are not yet full sure of it's intentions.

I would agree Joe that we are not sure of it's full intentions until the 3rd film is revealed. However I have to say I enjoyed it as a stand alone film and was extremely impressed with the art direction.

Good points Joe, if not slightly harsh. This is going to be a franchise that they will be dragging out for many years (just like the marvel universe), so I'm glad that they have moved away from the old characters and started a new story. Rey not being tied into the Skywalker family means the story can progress.

As for Snoke? I wasn't expecting his outcome. We didn't know the back ground of the emperor in episode 4, like we didn't with Snoke. The difference being though that one lasted longer than the other in the trilogy..

Who knows what the future will hold, just glad they haven't rehashed ep 4-6..

    Its here! The film all Marvel fans have been waiting to see for the past 10 years. I won’t give away any spoilers (and the trailers were very clever to not give away any of the important stuff) but this is all your favourite characters in one movie, fighting the evil Thanos…. And they did not disappoint. Infinity war part 1, pulls you in right from the start and you realise early on that this is New York again times infinity. This is all down to Thanos who by far is the best and my favourite of the bad guys. Even though he has been thrown straight into the story, you kind of feel for him… His character was developed brilliantly and I was sort of routing for him in the end. This movie was a funny, emotional, adrenaline rush and almost ticked every box even for the most hardened fans. Every character gets their own time on the big screen, while at the same time the story flowed seamlessly. This was Marvel’s empire strikes back movie, and has left us waiting for part 2 with more questions than answers. I’m giving this movie 5 stars, so if you haven’t seen this movie yet, then go and see it. If you have, then go and see it again!

    Mom and Dad looks like one of the weirdest films of this year, however I can not tell whether Hollywood has gone too far or this is a work of comedic/thriller genius. It's nice to see legendary actor Nick Cage back on the screen, however I'm not sure if this film looks funny or sick! What are your thoughts!
