As a huge Star Wars it pains me to say that I thought Force Awakened wasn't very good. I know those of you that read my Facebook post about it are just shocked! It was better then the
Phantom Menace, and many of the god awful books that were released, but that isn't actually saying much. Kylo Ren is a terrible, he is like what if Darth Vader in the original movies was
just like Anakin from the Prequels. The reset of the galaxy was, imo, idiotic. I didn't eve care when the big even happened at the end of the movie (fyi, need to add spoiler tags), and it
was telegraphed from a mile away. Even Donald Trump could have seen that coming. JJ Abrams shouldn't be allowed near another Sci Fi property ever again, especially Star Wars. How JJ Abrams
has snookered people into thinking he makes decent movies is almost as confusing as Michael Bay and how well his movies does. But for some reason he sells tickets due to type, and taking advantage of audiences hungry for a movie that is even slightly palatable.
I really hate JJ Abrams as a director.
Rogue One, haven't watched it yet to be honest. Convince me that I should care, please.
Why don't you tell us how it really is? haha!
Unfortunately, that's just way movies are made now-a-days...none of them are as good as the hype. Everything has to be so apolitical that it handcuffs any kind of decent director. The force awakens is a perfect example...everyone gave the actor that played Fin rave reviews like he was the best thing since sliced bread. Ummm, no.
To be honest...I went in with low expectations and was pleasantly surprised. That's just my jaded and cynical nature though. :) I was entertained and was super happy Star Wars was back!
One movie that I really loved but didn't get any love from anyone else was John Carter! I still don't understand why that movie didn't do better. I guess I was just too 'into' it to appreciate that others wouldn't like it like I did.
The next movie I'm hoping will do well is the new take on Tarzan! That should be coming out in the near future. Here's to wishing!
