Bad Times at the El Royale

Visually and narratively pleasing it is elevated by fine performances by each one of the significant players including Bridges, Johnson and Hemsworth. Secrets, lies and tension were the name of the game and Bad Times at the El Royale kept it coming in droves and made you guess. It was fun, dark and ...

Re: An HP fan theory. Does it make sense?

Obviously not cannon, but I think it fits pretty well, especially with how utterly baffled the wizarding community is by muggle technology and social norms. They've definitely been out of the loop for a long time. It was funny at first, but then it started to feel like an incongruous element, or wa...

Re: Star Wars: Episode 9

IHowever, if it's a patchwork fit in to say goodbye yet again that's stupid. I get the feeling it's a lose-lose situation, but hopefully the rest of the story is crafted well enough that it'll only be a hiccup. One can only hope but based on how The Last Jedi ended it definitely feels like the char...

Re: Star Wars: Episode 9

There is a long standing story that Harrison Ford asked for Solo to die in Return of the Jedi and was refused by Lucas. Perhaps he only agreed to return if they killed him. I do not mind the creative endeavour to kill off major staples of the universe in order to create new and engaging story. I am ...

Avengers: Infinity War

There was a lot of moving parts to the biggest narrative undertaking yet in the MCU. Some of them fit together nicely and others felt clogged for the sake of delaying the inevitable massive fight scene. Cap and Iron Man again had the most compelling narrative and Tom Holland and Chris Pratt served a...

Re: What are your top 10 most overrated movies?

Not going to be a list of 10 but here are some off the top of my head. Star Wars Prequels and The Last Jedi- The prequels were not necessary stories to be told and The Last Jedi in my opinion was just not a great continuation to the series. It was boring, pacing was off and the storylines just did n...

Re: Star Wars: The Last Jedi

I don't blame Rian Johnson anymore, I blame whoever had the decision making power and for some reason saw his resume and thought he'd be a good fit for directing a space sci-fi adventure film, that's who's at fault. Indeed the fault does fall with the person who gave him the job in the first place....
