Crop And Save
In one roughly 40 minute episode, The Mandalorian tops the prequel trilogy in action, acting, set pieces, and overall story. A fantastic episode that brings the Star Wars of the past back.
Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018)
This film could have been much better than it was. While not a bad movie, it doesn't ever justify its existence other than explaining some of the legends behind Han Solo that didn't need to be explained. The film has some pacing issues, mostly during the first act as it has to introduce characters, important settings, and begin the adventure all within around 30 minutes, causing the film to go through exposition followed by intense action and more exposition. The second act is fairly standard, and the third act is where the film picks up with the Kessel Run sequence and the introduction of the first rebels. Overall, however, the film is uneven and can feel pointless at times and never feels like the great Star Wars adventure it should be, often feeling like a film Frankensteined together with reshoots, probably due to the switching of directors between filming. Give it a watch if you want.
Rogue One (2016)
The closest we have gotten to the Originals
Rogue One is the first Star Wars film that feels similar to the originals since The Phantom Menace. Taking place during the Empire's rule yet again, we follow the rebels on a suicide mission in collecting the Death Star plans. The acting is incredible, the characters, while not the most interesting, definitely have chemistry and a sense of camaraderie between them, and the effects are some of the best out of all Star Wars films. The best of the Disney Star Wars films.
I honestly don't hate it
If you asked me 4 years ago what my least favorite Star Wars film was, it would be this one. Remembering the last time I watched it being when I was 7, I thought it was boring and uneventful and not worthy of a rewatch and until I was 17, I didn't watch it. However, after watching it at an older age, I appreciated the film more. Of course the Gungans are annoying, the CGI dated, and some of the dialogue is messy, the film sets up Anakin and his relationship with Obi-Wan and Padme, as well as fleshing out Obi-Wan's past. The fights are memorable for the most part, especially the last one, the manipulation starting within the government of the Republic is intriguing, and overall it feels like more is happening to move Anakin's story forward than the second film and does so in a more memorable way.
What was this?
My second least favorite Star Wars film. After The Phantom Menace, which was ok, we have this film which I hate. The worst aspects of the prequels lives here. Bad dialogue, wooden acting, bad CGI at points, and a love story that has no chemistry between the characters and feels creepy if anything. On top of that, it has the weakest villain of the entire franchise (At least in the films) with very few memorable moments. Not a good film.
An all time favorite
While I understand many don't like the prequels because of the poor dialogue and, at times, acting, I feel this film has less of it than the last two and brings the story of Anakin Skywalker's turn to the dark side to a satisfying conclusion. The film is the darkest in the franchise, has many great fight scenes, Palpatine is a joy to watch, and while still having some issues with dialogue, I can't knock the film down points because I thoroughly enjoy it overall. Ewan McGregor stands out as Obi-Wan, and with so many iconic moments in the film it ranks as one of my favorite Star Wars films.
Highly Underrated Star Wars film
I don't understand why when I ask people to rank their favorite Star Wars films, this one is constantly at the bottom? Is it because of the Ewoks? Because other than people having gripes with them I can't see many flaws. The story is great as always, the fights amazing, the effects outstanding, the interactions between characters are top notch, and it wraps up the trilogy really well. One of my favorite Star Wars films and really underrated.
The Best of the Star Wars franchise
This film is the Star Wars film that will always serve as the bar to which all Star Wars films that are released must strive to reach. The story is darker than the first, more interesting than the first, and has so many iconic moments that it is impossible not to think of them when you think of Star Wars. Amazing acting, characters, set pieces, effects, new worlds, arguably my favorite lightsaber duel in Star Wars, and plenty of great plot twists, this film is a truly legendary film.
Star Wars (1977)
A True Classic
While A New Hope is not my favorite Star Wars film, it was the film that got me into Star Wars, and ultimately, inspired my love for film in general. It will always be a movie close to my heart. Great acting, characters, story, and effects for its time. An all around outstanding film.
A decent Star Wars film
When this film first released I would have rated it a 9, mostly out of the exhilaration of a new Star Wars film being released. However, after sitting on it for a few years, I believe it deserves a 7. The film follows the first Star Wars film too closely and feels like a rehash of things we have already experienced. However, with solid acting, decent to great characters (Kylo Ren), and having excellent effects, the film is entertaining enough to rewatch (unlike a later entry into the series).
Better than the last one
The Rise of Skywalker is an enjoyable entry into the Star Wars Saga that suffers issues with pacing and including some plot holes that can be troublesome, though delivering an ultimately entertaining moviegoing experience. Definitely better than The Last Jedi, Attack of the Clones, and Solo in my opinion.
Go out and see this movie. Phenomenal acting and a beautiful character study creating a truly disturbing portrait of the Joker.
Captain Marvel (2019)
Dull and boring
Captain Marvel does everything by the numbers and brings nothing interesting to the table. Brie Larson is not charismatic enough to portray the character well and Captain Marvel cones off as arrogant and cocky without any consequences befalling her because of her being overpowered. She displays almost no weaknesses and is not a very relatable character for the audience. On top of this, the film is a formulaic origin story with no distinct tone. Overall, the film fails to do anything meaningful so that it can stand out in the vastness of the MCU.
It Chapter Two (2019)
While not quite as good as the first one, and having a disappointing final form for Pennywise, these aspects do not serve to detract from the overall quality and enjoyment I had while watching the film. The cast was outstanding, the direction superb, and, for the most part, the writing tight. With a few missteps towards the end keeping it from being as good as it could be, I still feel that this film does justice to Stephen King's book, and even improves the ending of said book in some cases. Overall, I recommend seeing it
as, even though it doesn't quite reach the bar the first film set, it does manage to be an emotional and deep character study that engages to the end.
Game of Thrones (2011)
An amazing series
Save for season 8, this series is one of the best ever to be on television. Watch seasons 1-7 and ignore 8 if you want, but I won't be penalizing the entire show for one bad season. I still love the show and think its up there with Breaking Bad, The Sopranos, and Deadwood as all time great shows.
Game of Thrones: The Long Night (2019)
Doesn't sit well the longer I think about it
I originally gave this episode a 10 out of 10 because I was caught up in the spectacle, but now, after hearing the opinions of others and thinking about the episode, it doesn't hold up as well. While still a good episode, the writing is what brings it down so much. The build up to the Night King and everything ending in one battle is anticlimactic, as well as the fact that Azor Ahai reborn, the main prophecy of R'hllor never comes to fruition. Ultimately I feel it is definitely better than most of the episodes this season, but that's not saying much. Still I enjoyed it decently but it has dropped significantly in my eyes as I have had more time to think about this episode.
Game of Thrones: The Bells (2019)
Best Episode of GoT in my opinion
While I thought episode 3 was outstanding after watching it, it later began to feel more disappointing as I thought about it. Then Episode 4 came around and I thought it was mediocre with a few good scenes. Going into this episode I was scared it was going to be another disappointment and would be underwhelming. Boy was I wrong. This episode was everything I wanted. Great action, character deaths, tension, and unexpected twists brought me back to the two last episodes of season 6, which were my favorite episodes at the time. This episode is horrific in its portrayal of the horrors of war and is unflinching, the effects were top notch, and the acting was nearly flawless. Overall I feel this episode definitely deserves to have a higher rating in my opinion. It was satisfying, emotional, and overall entertaining.
Avengers: Endgame (2019)
An Emotional Ride
Avengers: Endgame is possibly the best example of how to give fans the best possible payoff for staying with the series. While it does drag towards the beginning, it does so to develop our characters and make the later scenes more emotional and tense. Overall, while I may enjoy Infinity War a bit better, this was still an outstanding film that serves as one of the best out of all superhero movies.
Possibly the best battle ever filmed
This episode was incredible. It was brutal, unflinching, realistic, and incredibly satisfying. I am blown away with how beautiful this episode was and I don't exaggerate when I say that this is the best episode of GoT thus far.
One of the best Spiderman/Superhero movies to be released
Amazing visuals, soundtrack, writing, plot, and characters all help to create an absolutely stunning film. Go see it.
Christopher Robin (2018)
Christopher Robin is a truly great and heartwarming film about the importance of family and friends on one's life. Not only written incredibly well and acted perfectly, the film has a lot of realism to it, even with talking stuffed animals as part of the cast. Blending very real everyday hardships with fantasy gives the film a contrasting look at how bleak the world is when we don't realize what is truly important and tells us to remember our childhoods and try to be a better parent by being a kid with your kids. Overall, the film displays a heartfelt message with a cast of fun characters from an iconic series and does so very well and I suggest you go out and see this movie.
What in the hell was this garbage? It's like everything that was built in The Force Awakens was thrown away and the laziest answers for legitimate questions were given. Characters feel as though they reverted back to their old selves in the beginning of The Force Awakens and any character development from that film was tossed out. The movie feels like an hour and a half chase scene with a pointless 30 minute social commentary segment that felt like Hollywood propaganda, and another 30 minutes of constant unnecessary exposition. Force powers are distributed as though anyone can pick their powers put of a hat and use them, all lore established in previous Star Wars movies is contradicted, and beloved characters just die for no reason and are barely even mentioned after their deaths. This was one of the most disappointing movies of 2017 and one I couldn't even review until now because of how shocked I was. I thought that the bad reviews after the film released in theaters were just from a bunch of angry "fans" who didn't like anything but the original trilogy and were just nitpicking, but for the first time, I agree with the fans. This movie was just bad, and I don't know where this trilogy can go from here.
Deadpool 2 (2018)
One of the funniest movies i've seen
Not only does Deadpool 2 up the action, it ups the fun and the humor as well as the emotion. Great acting, action, jokes, direction, and production all around. Go see it!
Avengers: Infinity War (2018)
This film could have failed in many ways, especially if the writers dulled the stakes, but that is the opposite of what they did. This film is tense, dark, hopeless, yet humorous. The film takes risks that will no doubt leave audiences shocked and by doing this alone has made it a revolutionary comic book movie. The characters, the action, the acting, and the setpieces are all done marvelously, and the villain, Thanos, is one of the most intense and frightening villains in Marvel film history and possibly in Cinema as a whole. Whenever he is onscreen you feel as though all hope is lost and that our heroes are in great peril, making this a thrill ride of a film that must be seen. I was not expecting what I got, but leaving the theater, I was absolutely speechless.
