A Review From A Galaxy Far, Far Away…Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Written by D. Quinn

SPOILERALERTSo, before we get started I simply want to say that I enjoyed Star Wars: The Last Jedi. That being said, I expected a lot more. I heard someone say that this movie was better than Empire Strikes Back. If you agree with that, then to you I say this: you need to reevaluate your life choices. There will be spoilers in this so if you have NOT watched The Last Jedi…then you should NOT read this review.

Prepare for a jump to hyperspace.

The Last Jedi picks up where The Force Awakens left off. Rey, in the noblest of gestures, handing over her newly-found lightsaber to its original and rightful owner, Luke Skywalker. If his grim visage from the end of TFA is any indication, his reaction isn’t going to be good. So, what does he do? He chucks it. While I expected something along these lines, I still found it amusing.

After Rey located Luke, we find him living off the land …in exile. Doesn’t this sound a bit familiar? Wait…Luke found Yoda…in exile…

Murder on The Orient Express: Do you know who did it?

So this past weekend has been nothing but crazy, from Thanksgiving, to black Friday, to a number of different shows popping up left and right. I finally had time to go and watch a movie I’ve kind of been anticipating to see “Murder on the Orient Express” I went to the movie theater this past weekend with my mom and aunt, yes ladies and gentlemen, my mom and aunt, and also the noisy guy in the background. Don’t get me wrong it’s ok to make noise in the movies we all do, but come on dude not everything needs to be commented on every two seconds, but luckily I tuned him out and enjoyed myself. I’ve been wanting to check out this movie a few months back when I first saw the trailer, it looked so interesting especially with so many actors I really enjoy. But I got so busy and just put off the movie and kind of just waited to see people’s reaction or see if my mom wanted to go, since she just finished the book.

“Avengers: Infinity War Trailer” Thanos Has Arrived

Wow! Just wow! (plays back the trailer before writing this) The long awaited “Avengers: Infinity War” trailer is finally!!! finally!!! finally!! — didn’t I already say finally? — but FINALLY here!!! I mean, I don’t know if there’s ever been such a big anticipation for a comic book movie trailer like this one. Have you seen the trailer!? It is amazing. Fans have been waiting for this trailer since almost May or June. Then we heard that people at San Diego Comic Con got a glimpse of this trailer. Fans around the world heard this news and waited for one of the most anticipated movie trailers to drop, but were soon disappointed to find out Marvel was not releasing the trailer until later in the year. That sparked up many angry tweets, and then an unexpected leak of the trailer from comic-con. This only made Marvel mad, but it goes to show that fans want what the fans want.  Word was going around the internet that the Infinity War trailer was coming out, but many people thought it was just a joke until it kept popping up. Then Tom Holland went live with viewers and showed the new Avengers movie poster, and also stated the trailer comes out the next day.

Justice League: Critics Should be Thrown in the Speed Force

DFWih8yXcAM_5g8

The DC Extended Universe strikes back again with one of the most highly anticipated movies of the year “Justice League”, only to be struck down by critics. Everyone was anticipating the early screening reactions from many viewers. People re-tweeted and scouted all over the internet to see what people were thinking of the film. Many of the reviews seemed pretty good in terms of what we saw last year from the critics with Batman v Superman. To me, a lot of the early reactions seemed all the same. Even though they can never fully go in depth, I still felt no one fully had a good grasp on what they were feeling towards the film. Only about 2 really felt honest. But the early screen reactions weren’t the problem, it was the critics who seem to always bash the DC Extended Universe and we have to wonder why this is. If you come right out and blame Zack Snyder you should turn right around and keep moving.
