At the end of the day, A Force Awakens is a decent film. Standing by itself, it’s flawed fan service that only gets half of what it is doing right. Given time, I think most will come to agree this is just a 5.5 film, but if you add in hype and anticipation it’s an 8.
Darth Jar Jar (DJJ) is the top Sith, and Emperor Palpatine worked for him. That’s why Palpatine needed a Death Star, DJJ is too strong in person (or planetside). But in the aftermath of the Battle of Endor, in Episode 7, the figure in the shadows pulling the strings is the return of DJJ.
Kingsman is immediately aware of the nature of the genre it is in. This is about spies, intrigue, and gadgets. But adding to this standard issue, Kingsman throws in a bit of the fish-out-of-water, a touch of class rivalry and bias, and multiple helpings of the outlandish.
Speculation on the plot of Star Wars VII, based on the names of several characters revealed in the teaser trailer.
The latest remake, Wild Card, appears to be an unflinching copy of Burt Reynolds’s film Heat (not to be confused with the DeNiro/Pacino heist film of the same name but vastly different plot). The result, based on the trailer and the way The Mechanic generally mimicked the theme of the original, is likely another fast paced yet unremarkable trip down memory lane.
With the anticipation of this film, the first trailer was supposed to be the knock-out punch that sells the film. It doesn’t. But it does make me predict that this film will live up to none of the things that fans love about the original series.
