Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales was one of the movies I happened to miss this summer so when it was available to watch digitally I was so excited. This was one of the movies I actually wanted to see and I was a little disheartened to see that it got subpar reviews. People didn’t say it was bad but they didn’t say it was great either. So I watched it apprehensively. I figured it would be enjoyable, to a certain extent, because Disney doesn’t make absolutely terrible movies, but would it be able to stack up to the success of some its predecessors? And I’m glad to say I came from the movie with a nod and a smile on my face. It was good, it wasn’t great, but I did like certain aspects of the film. So, with that, let me start this review.
One of my favorite aspects of Star Wars are the locations. Whenever there’s a new planet I’m always excited to see what it’ll look like, such as the new planets in The Last Jedi, Crait and Cantonica. Throughout the Star Wars films, there have been many, many planets that I have found are absolutely incredible. So, on that note, here are my favorite planets.
Mustafar is one of the most original locations in Star Wars. The fact that it’s a moon that consists of only lava and volcanic rock makes this, undoubtedly, one of the coolest planets in Star Wars. And thanks to Rogue One, we now know that Darth Vader built his castle on the fiery world. That is a very awesome fact.
A lot of the great storylines in Star Wars revolves around family matters, from the whole father/son struggle between Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker to now the conflicts between Kylo Ren, formerly Ben Solo, and his parents. And even though it is the mothers that bring these characters into the world they’re not really celebrated or utilized into the weaving of these fantastic stories as much as they should. So I figure it’s only fair to write a post celebrating these extraordinary women who have had a huge but usually overlooked impact on these Star Wars films.
I am pretty sure that there are going to be a lot of surprises in The Last Jedi, and one of the biggest, if not slightly devastating, shockers would be to find out that after all of these years Luke Skywalker turned bad. Not only would that be one of the most astonishing surprises in Star Wars history but that would just be terrible. Luke Skywalker was a galactic hero. He survived the seductive powers of the Emperor, he saved his father’s soul, and he was a full-blown Jedi Knight by the end of Return of the Jedi. So what could possibly turn the Jedi Master to the dark side? I have no idea but the closer it gets to The Last Jedi’s premiere the more apparent it’s becoming that Luke isn’t the same Luke he was in Episode VI. I’ve just recently seen a couple of new photos of Luke and I’m telling you, they’re kind of creepy. Here they are. Continue reading Has Luke Skywalker Secretly Gone to the Dark Side in The Last Jedi?
I am pretty positive thanks to a very reliable source in the form of Mark Hamill’s twitter that on October 9 the next trailer for The Last Jedi will premiere during Monday Night Football. That is literally only ten days from now. Isn’t that awesome? And so, since it’s so close until the next trailer debuts I’m here writing a post on the things I would really love to see in the trailer. Here they are.
A Few More Shots of Finn
Finn was a very essential character in The Force Awakens, in fact, he was just as important as Rey, and so when the teaser trailer came out I was kind of disappointed to see only one shot of him and that only consisted of him asleep in some sort of bacta device. Now I understand why he was so scarcely seen in the trailer. That trailer was supposed to kind of highlight where the characters were the last time we saw them without really showing too much but it’s less than three months until the movie comes out. I think it’s time we see a little more Finn action, for sure.
35 seasons, seventeen years, and Survivor is still going as strong as ever. After last season I was a little skeptical that this new season wouldn’t be as good as Survivor: Game Changers, considering that Season 34 had so many huge personalities and incredible Survivor players. I was excited about this new dynamic however in terms of the three groups, Heroes, Healers, and Hustlers. Would these people really live up to their groups’ identities or would the titles just mainly boost their egos?
When Season 35 debuted its premiere last night I was ecstatic. One of my favorite shows is Survivor and so whenever there’s a new season I am so excited to see the new faces and new idols and new situations that Survivor never seems to disappoint on. And last night’s premiere was not an exception. Continue reading The New Season of Survivor Is Here!
I know it’s not even a month until Thor: Ragnarok comes out but the closer it gets to November 3 the more excited I’m starting to get. It’s getting closer and closer to the days when Avengers: Infinity War will be the movie I’ll be waiting for and Thor: Ragnarok, I’m sure, will have a lot of nods towards that Avengers film. I’m also excited to watch this new Thor film because it looks so different than all of his other movies.
