Because we have Ewan McGregor reprising his role this show is just the Star Wars version of Star Trek Picard. In other words- super damaging and very hard to watch.
Cause and effect are out the window and if a police department used this movie for training they’d be accused of Racial and Gender Profiling.
The Kenobi shows mission is not to entertain but to tear down other Star Wars. The presence of Ewan McGregor makes this show Star Wars’ version of ‘Picard.’
The debut peaks when we get Jimmy Smits and McGregor together for some damn fine acting that absolutely rises above the material.
I’ve decided to kick the can on Dr Strange and here’s how I came to this conclusion.
Not that History and Science are why I go to the MCU- but in weird Episode 6 Up is Down
Among other franchises being liberally borrowed from we have a huge dose of Batman, Philip K Dick’s novels and movies based on them, Twin Peaks, The Matrix, Resident Evil, a growing amount of STARGATE and just a dash of Star Wars
Episode 4 of Moon Knight features continued strong performances from Ethan Hawke and Oscar Issac as well as some cool Twin Peaks-like Moments. It also seemingly rebooted everything to this point
For the third time in three episodes I’m wondering if we get some answers next week.
The second episode of Moon Knight dropped on Disney Plus earlier today and I for one was hoping we would get some payoffs and answers. There’s some of that but its mostly comedy and edgy-ness.
I don’t know what to make of this. Oscar Issac is too good an actor to say the shows good or bad, because he almost totally wills strange things into coherence with sheer determination. The premiere wasn’t a smooth or fluid experience though. The story didn’t feel like it unfolded organically.
Star Trek may be the only show on TV at the time to address Vietnam. They do it pretty indirectly but clearly via a reference to “the 20th century brush wars on the asian continent.” This is Star Trek doing politics right.
This movie was absolutely made to have some of the ‘stand up and cheer’ feeling the movies made during the war had while still maintaining a serious enough tone. This war movie is never really that morbid despite a lot of heavy and serious events. The tone and feel often mirrors older, black and white era war movies.
FURY is darker and grimmer than most any other war movie I’ve seen. It’s very fatalistic, beyond the normal fatalism of soldiers in World War II movies. In the end they take on what seems to amount to a suicide mission.
The inversion of reality is so complete that all nations military’s fight hard and honorably- except the bumbling Americans – who just so happen to have won the Western European part of the war in REAL Life.
The re-modified Modifier standing by a Bacta Tank in front of a corpse that WILL go on whether it should or not really was a fitting way to end this show and a real referendum on the state of Star Wars.
the core of this episode involves franchise hero Luke Skywalker being something fans have wanted for a long time – a kind and powerful Jedi Master teaching a new student the ways of the Force
Rolling in to Episode Five of Book of Boba Fett the show veers away from everything that’s happened til now and rejoins The Mandalorian
Episode four hit new lows in casting, character names, music and costuming.
The 36 minute experience was an almost random series of truly meandering images and occasional dialogue with a few bloodless fights and chases
Boba Fett’s successes in this episode are because his opponents aren’t what we’re told. They are also very stupid. The ‘fearless assassin’ Fennec captured breaks in seconds due to the threat of the Rancor- a creature that’s dead about 6 years this point.
“This was the best you could do? The show was planned at least 2 years ago. There was time.”
The early signs this movie was headed in a bad direction didn’t really show up.
While Original Khan is a soldier, a politician, a philosopher and a genius JJ’s botched Kelvin Clone is a mere MCU SuperSoldier.
There seems to be no consequences for this expensive, offensive, fan-less mess that failed so badly as a premium show it killed CBS ALL ACCESS. Its also achieved historically bad ratings when shown on regular TV. The show is a disgrace and a disaster. We’ll Explore a few reasons why.
JJ Abrams horrible ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ was something he felt strongly about only one aspect of – he wasn’t going to call it what it was – Star Trek 12. The word sequel is frightening to JJ and he fails at them every time. So we get nonsense name INTO DARKNESS. He tried to… Continue reading Star Trek Into Darkness is a Horrible Movie A Comprehensive Review
The cast are gone. The director is best known for slapstick comedy. The head writer has never made a movie thats been in theaters. The co-writer has two poorly regarded scripts and has never been retained for a sequel to her own work.
After a confusing string of disjointed episodes there was a LOT riding on the season finale to cement the show into some form of coherence.
This weeks plot is the worst yet- but the episode is actually fun.
