Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) **REVIEW**

The movie we been waiting for is finally here, the fans get to see if their theories are right. I have to say; ‘The Last Jedi’ was quite good in story line but the rest had me thrown off. We found out who Rey’s parents was, not what I was expecting, they aren’t important to the Star Wars story. But we did get to see what really happened between Kylo & Luke.

‘The Last Jedi’ begins where ‘The Force Awakens’ ended. We see Rey with Luke at the Jedi Island. She’s trying to convince him to come with her to help in the fight but he is straight up refusing. Not until he notices her powers. Remember when Luke was younger he was told about the last Jedi and he always thought it was himself? Yeah.. No. Luke decides to help Rey understand her powers and he tells her the story. Rey and Kylo have a bond where they can communicate no matter where they are. Both Luke and Kylo gave her each a side of a story. So question is, which side is true?

At the same time, Finn and Rose goes on to a quest to find a lock master, someone who can open any lock in the galaxy to help with them with a dangerous quest. No win the war they have to disarm the protection shield inside a mother ship. So you can guess this won’t exactly be easy for the two.

This is where ‘The Last Jedi’ gets a tad messy. It basically holds 3 stories in one film so it’s easy to get confused. Don’t get me wrong, the movie is good, story line is good but… just something about the film as a whole that’s just… not right me. I didn’t understand what others where talking about after they saw the film but after seeing it, I can now see why.

 

Who are the actors in this film and where do we know them from?

  • Mark Hamill – Luke Skywalker ( Star Wars, Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero,The Flash )
  • Carrie Fisher – Leia Organa ( Star Wars, Family Guy, Catastrophe, Smallville )
  • Adam Driver – Kylo Ren ( Paterson, Inside Llewyn Davis, Logan Lucky, Silence)
  • Daisy Ridley – Rey ( Murder on the Orient Express, Silent Witness, Casualty )
  • John Boyega – Finn ( Attack the Block, Detroit, Tinkershrimp & Dutch, Major Lazer, Imperial Dreams )
  • Oscar Isaac – Poe Dameron ( Suburbicon, The Promise, XMen-Apocalypse, A Most Violent Year )
  • Andy Serkins – Snoke ( Lord of the Rings, War for the Planet of the Apes, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Death of a Superhero, Brighton Rock )
  • Kelly Marie Trans – Rose Tico ( Untouchable, XOXO, CollegeHumor, Discount Fitness, Pub Quiz )

 

Who is the director and what is she/he known for?

The Circle (2017) **REVIEW**

We live in a era of where social media have a lot of power. Information can be spread like wild fire and we also find out what we all had for dinner. I heard about ‘The Circle’ book and got interested since it’s aspect is the power of social media but then Emma Watson & Tom Hanks was doing a film out of it.

‘The Circle’ is about Mae getting a job at a huge tech company called The Circle, she’s so excited. They provide her with a room to stay. It’s a massive place and basically got all you need within the walls, you never need to leave really. One day as she sits doing her job two people come up o her asking why she hasn’t set up her social media profile yet, it was part of her job to be on social media and talk to co-workers. But one day that backfires when she shares her friends lanterns and he is being called for deer killer. The lanterns are made out of horns but he gets the horns from others who hunt. It goes so far he need to live in woods to hide. Power of social media.

One day Mae agrees to do something I would never do. To always wear a camera to live record her everyday life for everyone to see. It becomes a huge success. But with that also comes pain. She’s starting to lose friends and family due to the fact she can’t talk to them without them feeling uneasy by the constant filming. After her friends death she feels that something is wrong with The Circle and is determined to find out what, for everyone to see and.. to film it all for all her viewers.

Yes, I would say it’s important to see this film and it’s available on Netflix. You see the real power of social media and how quick jump on the band wagon of filming EVERYTHING and put it out there for everyone to see. In the film they believe that information should be available for ALL, all sorts of information. But that, I don’t agree on. It can be dangerous to know absolutely everything. There are some things we should not know, knowing everything doesn’t always mean good.

Actors: Emma Watson, Tom Hanks, Ellar Coltrane, Glenne Headly, Bill Paxton, Karen Gillan, Nate Corddry, Mamoudou Athie, John Boyega and many more.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015) **REVIEW**

Just before Christmas I got to see the new Star Wars film. I’m a fan of the franchise and seen the films. I’ve seen split opinions about the new one but I can say I really enjoyed it. Many thought Disney would ruin this legendary epic saga but they kept how it is.

It’s been 30 years since Darth Vader defeated and all been well until now. A new threat have risen and it’s bigger and meaner than Darth Vader. We get to see how someone from the resistance is trying to find Luke – who disappeared, visit a village to get the last piece of clues on where Luke is. During this visit this new threat also pays a visit and mayhem begins. We get introduced to a new droid, a hidden star of the film. The droid carries the last clue and basically runs from the mayhem. During the shoot out in this village, one of the storm troopers doesn’t want to kill. He hesitates. The resistance guy gets captured and the storm troopers helps him to escape.

We get introduced to several new characters. For example Rey. A lonely girl who is scavenging for pieces to get food. She was left alone on a planet by her parents. But we don’t know who her parents are. But she does have the force and it conflicted about it. Before she finds out about who she is, she meets the droid and gives him shelter. She meets the storm trooper and they set out on adventure and steal a ship. Not any ship – Millennium Falcon.

In this film we find out who the new threat is. We see familiar faces, Chewie, Han Solo, Princess Lea, R2D2, c-3PO & Luke (in the end). What did you think? Thought they wouldn’t find him? They did.

If you are a fan of the Star Wars franchise I would recommend for you to see this film if you haven’t done so already. It can be a messy film but it all comes together in the middle and you have to follow and trust the film. And you will like the new droid, he is charming and quite funny for not having lines.

You see actors like Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and many more.
