    Future Star Wars spinoffs on hold :(

    Rogue One was a brilliant idea for a spin off/prequel. It had a nice link to the originals, but could be its own thing entirely; other than the final outcome, it had nothing else to set up. The final space battle was thrilling and I loved the little twist. I just found most of the characters very dull, which was a shame.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi - December 2017

    He’s just so fucking boring in the prequels. He was spot-on in TLJ, and was perfectly used.

    Future Star Wars spinoffs on hold :(

    Solo would have performed a lot better at Christmas I’m sure. Christmas is ‘Star Wars in the cinema’ time for us. I had opening night IMAX tickets booked for TFA, Rogue One and TLJ, but I didn’t bother with Solo. I imagine it also suffered from the widely reported production problems (we’d have probably forgotten about those by December), and actually quite a dull premise, which was its biggest crime. Can’t say I’d be excited about an Obi-Wan film either. I reckon Kathleen Kennedy will be replaced. They severely misjudged what people actually want to see, and fucked up with their choice of directors (either go with Gareth Edwards and The Lego Movie guys and let them do their thing, or don’t).

    Pode looks interesting. A little platform puzzler thing. Could also be criminally average as a lot of them are, so I’ll wait for some reviews.
  5. That’s definitely a little bit exciting. My view is, they can’t fuck up the series even more. If my man JC is involved, Linda is signed up, and they bin off T3/T4/T5, I’m interested in seeing what they have cooking up. I’m sure James Cameron always had some ideas for where he’d take the series after T2, and I’m sure we’ll be seeing some of that here.

    Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom - 2018

    Yeah, its worst crime is it’s fucking boring. Don’t mind silly and ridiculous at all. I enjoy plenty of silly films. But give me to some characters to like, give me something to care about while I’m having fun.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi - December 2017

    I found the Kylo/Luke showdown to be one of the most exciting, beautiful, and heartbreaking sequences in a Star Wars film. The whole build up, the backstory between Kylo and Luke, the reunion with Leia beforehand, and the shot of his cloak blowing away in the sunset? Beautiful. Full of emotion. Up there with the best the series has to offer for me.

    Hereditary

    Didn’t he name Under the Shadow as the best film of 2016 too? Yeah. I do like Kermode, but he has some wild opinions. I love that he does have an opinion though; if I agreed with everything he said he wouldn’t be very interesting.

    Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom - 2018

    My favourite thing about the original is that you do not see the raptor at all until it bursts through the pipes behind Laura Dern when you’re least expecting it. You see bits of it - a flash of an eye, the infamous claw, you hear about how it hunts it’s prey, and listen to them eating a cow. The build up to that moment is masterful.

    Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom - 2018

    What the fuck did I just watch Utterly dreadful from beginning to end. I get that it was silly and ridiculous, but it was just so boring with it. The script was humour-free, and not one character was likeable, which made me care even less about what was going on. Genuinely wanted them to get eaten at the end. It looked rubbish - everything looked fake (what is it with blockbusters these days?) - and I’m sure I’ve seen the final battle in a Tim Burton film before. Never again. EDIT: Can someone please stop Colin Trevorrow and his mate from writing/making films please? They made one half-decent indie film a few years ago and nothing good since. Can’t even begin to imagine what Episode IX would have been like.

    This is why Aqua Moto Racing 3D is on sale every other week on the 3DS.

    Hollow Knight - Soulsvania platformer

    Yeah, they clearly worked hard to make it play brilliantly. Had another hour or so on it last night, it’s wonderful.

    SOLO: A Star Wars Story

    What a clusterfuck from the very beginning. Firstly, I just don’t think massive interest would have ever been there for a Solo movie. But then the production problems really put a dampener on things, and how on earth did they spend $300mil on it? Also, to not release it at Christmas was criminal. I’d have done my usual day one IMAX booking if it was out in December. I actually didn’t think I was going to see it in May, but had a free night a week or two after it came out. It just shows how uninteresting it was. I did think it was a fun movie though. Fairly bland and forgettable overall, but it had some enjoyable sequences and the guy who played Han was really good. Much better characters than Rogue One too.

    Hollow Knight - Soulsvania platformer

    Yep, really liking this. Looks great, really fun to control and jump around the world (SO important for a Metroidvania), lots of things to collect, and the enemies are fun to kill, even the easy ones (again, vital for a game like this).
