The Last Jedi

the last Jedi 12 17 2017

I am not going to give spoilers about this movie, but the visuals and graphics are absolutely stunning. You will definitely want to see it. If you are not a fan, then it is not the end of the world. Star Wars is one of the great Franchise movies ever made an epic tale of Good and Evil.  The same thing with the politicians they were good once and they turn evil? The total of all the Star Wars made over a billion for the past 40 years.

I like the cinematography in this movie because it’s absolutely breathtaking especially the action scenes they put together.  Since I am a photographer, I like the way it is put together.  Each frame tells a story.

Billie Lourd - The last jedi

Since Carrie Fisher died over a year ago, it is good to remember that this movie will be dedicated to Carrie Fisher and the next episode of the Star Wars Franchise movie should have an epic funeral of her instead of bringing her back alive. Did you know Carrie Fisher helped writing the screenplay for the Last Jedi? There was an epic scene in the movie or was it a premonition she had before she died.  And did anyone know that Billie Lourd, Carrie Fisher daughter was in the movie?

So far, the number is rising, the box office reports over 250 million surpassing the budget of this movie, that means the actors will be paid. Then the IRS will be after them.

rey jedi

One of the biggest clues in the movie is who is Rey? What’s her relationship with the characters in the movie? Who is related too? We don’t know. And why did she have the powers of the Jedi?  Is Kylo Ren and Rey related somehow? Did Yoda conceive her when Yoda did it with human female many years ago in a galaxy far far away?  Should they make a movie about Rey? People want an answer, and it would be great.  I am going to write a screenplay and see if they like it. It would take time to write it.

Go See it.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Force Awakens MP

What? Nooo! Why? That was my first reaction when I watch Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The last one was 32 years ago they could do a Star Wars 6.1, 6.2 or 6.3 to see how the characters were teenagers? Possible a prequel to the sequels?

Oh by the way, never let your son or daughter be tempted to the dark side. Teach them, guide them, and take them to church. Can I borrow a nickel?

What’s Rey in relationship with Luke? Is she Luke adopted sister when his parents were killed in the first movie and she disappeared? Luke stayed with his Aunt and Uncle, the Lars family. Did they have a daughter and Luke did not know? And she left? Remember they were both scavengers and they know how to fix robots, droids and space vehicles. There’s a gap in the storyline maybe it will be answer in the next movie. Sci-fi – action – adventure – soap opera. They should put this as a new TV series. Oh they did remember Battle Star Galactic from the 1980’s and the remake in 2009?

By the way, I loved it. It was fantastic. The action sequence was so real like it actually came close to me. I had to duck when the lasers from the fighters flew over my head. The lasers hit my popcorn and it exploded in the movie theater. I saw it in 3D. I actually touch the spacecraft up close people saw my hand touching something. So real.  I hope the movie get’s nominated for an Oscar in 2016 for something, which will be great for J.J. Abrams and his crew.

Can’t wait to get it on Blu-ray DVD in May 2016 to see extra stuff and the process of making it and the gag reel of behind scenes.

Go see it!

Star Wars: The Review

So, if you haven’t seen any of the Star Wars movies here’s what you miss for the past decades of great Star Wars movies. Here’s a quick review.

Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace (1999)

Some stuffs about taxes and blockades. Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi escape to Naboo, save Jar Jar Binks, meet Queen Padmé Amidala. Slave Anakin Skywalker wins pod race, is freed, joins team. Jedi turn down Anakin, Gungans fight droids. Jedi fight Darth Maul. “More like Die-Gone Jinn.” Maul gets sliced. Obi-Wan can train Anakin.

 

Episode 2 – Attack of the Clone

Anakin is older. Padmé looks the same. It’s no longer weird. A couple of assassination attempts. Obi-Wan discover a clone army. Anakin can’t save his mom. Obi-Wan is captured. Anakin and Padmé to the rescue. They get captured. Gladiator with monsters. Anakin loses a hand. Yoda fights Count Dooku. A wedding!

 

Episode III – Revenge of the Sith

The Jedi are slaughtered, but Yoda and Obi-Wan are okay. Vader and Obi-Wan duel. Vader gets fired. Padmé has twins, dies.

 

Episode IV – The New Hope

Princess Leia sends C3PO and R2-D2 for help. Luke Skywalker meets them. Then Obi-Wan, bye, Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru. Hello, Han Solo and Chewbacca. See ya, Alderaan. That’s no moon, it’s a space station. The guys rescue Leia. Vader strikes down Obi-Wan. Han returns. Luke uses the Force. Boom goes the Death Star. No medal for Chewie.

 

Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back

Luke gets clawed, escapes. Han stuffs him inside a tauntaun. Leia kisses Luke. It’s weird. Luke meets Yoda. The others almost get eaten. Lando Cairissian betrays them. Leia loves Han. He knows, gets frozen. Lando is cool again. Vader is Luke’s father. The end is kind of a bummer.

The gang goes to Jabba the Hutt’s. Leia frees Han. Everyone is captured. Luke arrives, kills Jabba’s pet rancor. Leia chokes Jabbar, Yoda dies. Luke gets a sister. Everybody meets the Ewoks. Luke surrenders, but won’t give in to the dark side. Vader turns on Emperor Palpatlne. Dies. Lando blows the Death Star. All is well…for now.
