  1. I am not a big fan of TFA, but I think it's enjoyable enough, and serves its purpose of presenting the main characters and setting up the story. But TROS? I thought the trainwreck was due to disney's interference, but if what Sciretta says is true, then it speaks really really badly of JJ.
  2. For sure. But this has actually happened since 1980. You just can't please everyone, neither should it be the main point of any movie. But, seriously... It is even ironic. JJ tried as hard as possible to get away from the prequels, and he has managed to sink the franchise back to that level. Or even worse, because episodes 1 to 3 at least had a lot of world building and creativity put into them, even if the execution was awful.
  3. If that is true, then it is even more disappointing. Disney should have allowed LF to delay the movie. JJ has always been a hack, and TROS only proves it even further. My god.. Just the thought of having Rian back to helm 9... He would have made wonders with everything he set up in TLJ. What a shame.
  4. It is not the worst Star Wars movie yet, but it surely is the most disappointing one. Abrams and Terrio only had to do one thing right after TLJ tied up everything else so nicely: finishing ben solo's arc, and they have been unable to do it in a satisfactory way. Why? Because they lacked the courage to do what was, simply put, the best thing for the story. They had to cater to the fans. And to nostalgia. After months of complaining, moaning and asking the wrong questions, the fans broke the mouse's endurance. It just couldn't put up with the pressure. I can sympathize with them, but that doesn't make the movie any better in my eyes. It should be a mandatory commandment when writing a story in any kind of medium: NEVER. EVER. EVER pay attention to the fans. It only leads to the death of storytelling. And TROS proves so. I repeat: it's not the worst movie in the saga by a long shot, but it surely is the most disappointing one. Here is my personal ranking: -Empire Strikes Back -Star Wars -The Last Jedi -Return of the jedi -Solo -The rise of Skywalker -Attack of the clones -Revenge of the Sith -The Force Awakens -Rogue One -The Phantom Menace
  5. I was actually going to post the very same thing that @Noctis did. Cinema in general is a hobby. I love studying it, talking about it and writing about it. But its importance has to be relative. Shitstorms do exist, but only in real life. When it comes to star wars... Well, I have been a fan of the franchise for the most part of my life. There are movies I do not like, but I don't get angry about it because that is not supposed to be the reason those movies exist. It baffles me, and I also think haters and extremist people are the ones who ultimately lose by acting the way they do. Either way, goodspeed people 😘
  6. I can only hope that TROS' post production is going as smoothly as it can possibly go, but there is something that intrigues me. I remember reading two years ago and by this very same dates that TLJ was a good movie but that it would be highly divisive. Furthermore, I also remember reading four years ago that TFA was ok but that it wasn't going to be the movie to rekindle the spark for the franchise. I kinda feel both statements turned out to be true. So, how does it comes we haven't heard anything about it, apart from the leaks? That is, considering Venom's comments are false, of course.
  7. I had the opportinuty to assist to a preview screening of Glass in Spain, which is where I am from. It certainly is quite quaint to see what happens to Shyamalan's movies, which aren't generally well received at first, and it is after their release that they are reivindicated (Unbreakable, The Village, etc). Glass is not going to be any different. To say that it is a good movie is to stay far too short. I think it is a true masterpiece, way ahead of its time, with a script that has so many elements going on that it is mandatory to see the movie at least twice to fully get the big picture. And the crazy thing is that it works like a clockwork. Yeah, of course it has a few conveniences here and there, but overall it is a really really good script. And that is just one part of the equation. Let me begin to say that I think the Shyamalan from The Village is long gone, but, yet, there is such craftmanship in how and where he works the camera, there is such control of the atmosphere and its tone that turns watching the movie into a blissful experience. What is more, McAvoy, Jackson and Paulson give stellar performances, Willis is also pretty good, but those other three are just magnificient. I am not sure what the general audience's reactions are going to be, they may feel indifferent about it, or they may be dissapointed after the first 20-30 minutes, which is the most crowd pleasing part of the movie. Just go and watch the movie, and rejoice. For once, we are not living in mediocre times.
  8. Hi! Long time no see! Just wanted to drop by and say that this is by really really really far the best spiderman movie since Raimi's spidey's 2. Jut leaps and bounds better than homecoming and garfield's diptic, as if in day and night. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
  9. Just saw the movie! In my opinion, on par with the first one. I think the action is better, but the humor is not as witty, and some gags are repeated so much throughout the movie that they become unfunny.
  10. I agree with you. I also think Ultron is a better movie than the first Avengers, despite having that awful scene in the cave. Age of Ultron delves more and better into the characters, and not just in the farm scene, which I obviously love. There is something unique about Whedon, which is that he captures the character's voices perfectly. Also, it has one of my favourite moments in the entire MCU: when the Avengers are fighting in the church, there is a moment when the real Ultron gets thrown out of it, and Thor, Iron Man, and Vision throw lasers at him. That is pure superhero crazyness, all the more glorious because it is the first time we see the Vision throwing beams out of the stone in his forehead, without any kind of presentation, because of course he can do it! I think this works so well because of how Whedon builds all the superhero nonsense in the previous scene. And this comes sadfully unappreciated. In my opinion, right now there is no one better than Whedon when it comes to handling superhero movies, and I think that Avengers and Ultron make for a diptych apart from the rest of the MCU that is far more intersesting. This is the MCU's very own TLJ.
  11. Don't count on it. Why, oh, why do they think making a live action sonic movie is a good idea? They never learn. Let's cross fingers, though.
  12. I think this is going to break nearly as much as TFA did. This is the movie Marvel has been hyping for the last 6 years in an ever growing universe that began 10 years ago. Even Ultron, despite its mild reputation, did really well in the box office. I think there is no way this is going to make less than 1.500 million.
