Ron Howard Defies the Odds with Solo: A Star Wars Story (Review)

Ron Howard Defies the Odds with Solo: A Star Wars Story (Review)

The famed smuggler, scoundrel and hero Han Solo once said long ago in a galaxy far away to, “Never tell me the odds.” I can only imagine that was the same thing director Ron Howard kept telling himself when he was brought on board for Solo: A Star Wars Story after Lucasfilm fired directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, who had almost finished shooting the entire movie when Howard replaced them. With less than a year until the movie’s release and nearly three quarters of the movie scraped and needing reshoots, the task to deliver another entertaining (and successful) Star Wars movie seemed daunting. However, with veteran and acclaimed director Ron Howard steering the ship (or Millennium Falcon, in this case), the latest standalone Star Wars project is another mostly entertaining entry in the intergalactic saga. While Solo is far from perfect, this origin story about the original space cowboy is full of fun moments for both new and older audiences looking to whet their appetite during summer blockbuster season.

Sean’s Top 10 Films of 2017 Featuring Logan & Three Billboards

Sean’s Top 10 Films of 2017 Featuring Logan & Three Billboards

If you’re reading this, then you’ve probably read enough opening paragraphs for “Best Movies of 2017” lists explaining how great a year it was for cinema, and yes, all those articles/lists/whatever are correct. In a year filled with tribulation around the globe, going to the cinema not only felt like the perfect escape, but 2017 was also just a great year in general for movies. From blockbusters to indie standouts, we laughed, we cried, we cheered, and we were wowed from January to December. Creating this list was difficult because, honestly, there was something I saw each month that would have made my top 10 list for any other year; that itself speaks to just how good a year it was for going to the cinema. But another year has come and gone, and it’s time to look back and remember the best of the best that Hollywood gave us in 2017.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is Beautiful but 40 Minutes Too Long (Review)

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is Beautiful but 40 Minutes Too Long (Review)

My goodness it was not easy to get in to see Star Wars: The Last Jedi.  Long line-ups just for seating, sold out shows, no parking – there probably isn’t any need to review this because you’ve probably already seen it, whoever you are.  For those sane few who were not competing for the same seats as I was this weekend, this review is for you.  I’m not a rabid fan, I don’t really think Star Wars is any better than some of the other movies this year.  Still, there’s something wonderful about Star Wars, isn’t there?  The droids, the aliens the Jedi, the Force, the Spaceships, I love all of it and I couldn’t tell you exactly why.   Read more

Ranking The Star Wars Movies Including The Last Jedi

Ranking The Star Wars Movies Including The Last Jedi

The Star Wars Saga is probably the most popular film franchise in history. As loved as the saga is, not all of the movies are pure cinematic gold. There have been ups and downs, as expected with any franchise with 9 films. I had the privilege of seeing Star Wars: The Last Jedi on Monday and I thought it would be appropriate to rank all of the films from the worst to best. Let’s take a look below. Read more

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is the Year’s Best Blockbuster (Review)

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is the Year’s Best Blockbuster (Review)

After seeing Star Wars: The Last Jedi, I’m not surprised Lucasfilm is giving director Rian Johnson the keys to a new Star Wars trilogy after Episode XI; in fact, Rian Johnson’s now further involvement has me actually excited for the next Star Wars trilogy (and I’m not even a Star Wars fan). While The Last Jedi is a Star Wars movie, it also at times feels unlike any other Star Wars movie you’ve seen before. With that said, however, The Last Jedi is still a Star Wars movie through and through, and is filled with crowd-pleasing moments that should delight fans of the franchise. From the story and its gratifying twists and turns, to character developments for both new and old characters in the saga, to the movie’s dazzling action and visual effects, The Last Jedi is everything you could hope for in a grade-A blockbuster, and is easily one of the absolute best Star Wars movies in the franchise.

A Quick Look At Some of The Most Memorable Movie Memorabilia

A Quick Look At Some of The Most Memorable Movie Memorabilia

The role that film plays in society and the impact it has had on wider popular culture over the last century or so is almost possible to overstate. A rather telling example of this comes in the form of a study done by VisitBritain, which estimates that in 2001, approximately 20% of the 23 million visitors to the UK did so simply because of the way the country has been portrayed on television and film. If this isn’t enough to convince you of the indelible impact that the film industry has on our lives then you need to look no further than the rise in collection of movie memorabilia over the last 25 years or so.
