For R1, just because they're stealing plans to a superweapon doesn't mean that's all the movie had to be about. I kind of wanted to know more about what Hannibal-dad was going through at that research station. How Ghost Dog rebel got to be so paranoid and delusional all the time. What's up with the two quasi-Jedi? Why and how are they still guarding a temple on an Imperial world? Instead, they were chucked out and for most of the time we got to focus on cookie cutter guerilla girl and her block-of-wood love interest.

I don't even remember much of what TFA was about now. Just that Luke was looking at some chick like she just handed him a dead squirrel and a hobbit-haired Snape had it in for blinking consoles.

Well Ghost Dog Samurai was supposed to have a bigger part in the script but Ghost Dog did such a bad job acting the part they decided to cut it all out. I do think there could have been a lot of interesting story made about how Ghost Dog, Stereotypical Monks, and others were resisting the Empire. It was a pretty cool scene where they ambushed the imperial patrol. I didn't mind the scenes with Spunky British Girl and French Resistance Rebel. Though I think it was pretty lame how French Resistance Rebel somehow decided to spare the imperial weapon designer for some reason.

The more distance I get from TFA the more I have come to accept that it was a letdown. At least the prequels have their own flavor and feeling to them. TFA just reused a lot from the OT and didn't add too much.

An interesting angle would be to start from the perspective of the temple guys trying to keep the peace between the populace and the paranoid Imperials while an extremist rebel cell operates nearby. Sort of like a messed up Space Afghanistan. Then it could have intersected the Spunky-France couple to suck the survivors of the Death Star test along on the plans mission, maybe at a place that actually had Bothans.

The Bothans died for the information regarding the second death star.

I wonder how these guys sneaked onto an imperial base after all of that surely additional resources the empire's department of homeland security got to defend their data banks

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

10/10, enough said.

Edit: okay, I will say I feel this film was better than the first, first impression wise. Granted, the first gave me quite the fantastic first impression and was enjoyable, but this film just takes it a step further and has a more compelling story. Even despite the cluster of stuff involved in this movie, it still somehow works.

Some of the cameos and cultural references were funny, but I didn't think it had the zip of the original.

What was the bar of your expectations for the first one compared to the second, out of curiosity? I have no problem with you preferring the first over the second, I am just curious if it was due to expectations for both films or something else.

The first one was unexpected and original, the second had no real originality - just a different story.

It did have Zoe Saldana though, so it was OK.

That's just a bad picture of her, she is quite attractive.

Wonder Woman 9.5/10
I deducted 0.5 as I didn't think the Amazon's outfits were skimpy enough. Not sure how the film-makers didn't know that the whole point of the Wonder Woman story is for the girls to run around in skimpy outfits.
Apart from that I thought it was pretty good.

Power Rangers (2017): 7/10

Was hoping for this to be a good film and was satisfied. It turned out entertaining and well-paced. I liked the characters and hope there is a sequel to continue the story just to see where this goes from here. The die hard fans of power rangers that hated this film can suck it. People who were pissed at the Krispy Kreme product placement I can understand. It was a little ridiculous but it actually made the movie hilarious and brought back the classic power rangers corniness in a way. I counted Krispy Kreme to be verbally said 7 times and rangers about 31 times, so cannot say Krispy Kreme was said more than rangers.


Spiderman: Homecomng 7.75/10. I was on the fence whether to give this a 7.5 or an 8 so....

Michael Keaton was an awesome villain and Tom Holland did a good job as 15 year old Peter Parker/Spiderman. I'm glad they skipped the origin story with Uncle Ben for this film. The film certainly has its laughs and entertainment and is worth watching. The ending was pretty funny, but the post-credits scene, oh God... lol. I laughed all the way towards the car with that one.
