Movie Review – Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Movie Review – Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Star Wars The Last Jedi.jpg

Characters from Star Wars Episode VII return along with some of the charm and humor.

Rey has traveled to Luke Skywalkers’ recluse island and given him back his lightsaber along with the request to train her and return to the rebellion.

(Side note: Luke’s island is a real location: Skellig Michael in Ireland)

There are plenty of twists in this movie. Although some a lot more predictable than others. However, overall I really enjoyed the film. Some critics have said it’s on par with The Empire Strikes Back, I disagree. I would put the movie under TESB and the original Star Wars movie, but above Return of the Jedi.

Episode IX, the final installment of the sequel trilogy, is scheduled for release on December 20, 2019.[1]

Movie Review: CoCo

Coco (2017 film) poster.jpgMovie Review: CoCo

The idea of the film takes place on the Mexican holiday of the Day of the Dead.

Miguel (the hero) just wants to play music. However, his family has forbidden music for generations. On the Day of the Dead, he steals a guitar and is transported to the land of the dead. He must find a way to get back to the land of the living.

I thought it was going to be an okay movie. I was wrong.

It was a great movie. Twists and heart-warming.

I highly recommend this movie and it’s up there now among my favorites.

Movie Review: Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

Movie Review: Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

Official epic artwork posterYes, Johnny Depp is back as Captain Jack Sparrow. There are also cameo roles from Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann-Turner from the previous Pirates of the Caribbean movies.

This movie tells of Captain Armando Salazar (played by Javier Bardem) who became undead by Sparrow when he was younger. The storyline also has Henry Turner (Will & Elizabeth’s son) as he tries to free his father from his curse.

In all, the movie had its moments. The ending was too fast and simple. Would’ve been much better if Henry had somehow called his father into battle with Captain Salazar.

Movie Review – Spiderman Homecoming

Movie Review – Spiderman: Homecoming

Spider-Man Homecoming poster.jpgSpider-Man Homecoming takes place after the

Avengers: Infinity War movie. Tom Holland plays Spiderman and I have to agree with the critics that the actor did a superb job portraying Peter Parker/Spiderman.

The action and special effects were amazing.

This isn’t your copy-cat Spiderman though. First, MJ is not who you think she is and Peter doesn’t have a crush on her. Second, Aunt May is much younger than in previous films and comic books. Third, well that’s a surprise at the end of the movie so I won’t spoil it but it does tie into the second point above.

There are two post-credit scenes with the last one being another Captian America info-glip that is after all the credits.

So when is the next Spiderman movie coming out? A sequel is scheduled to be released on July 5, 2019.

My rating 4.8 stars out of 5
