Well that’s a blast of nostalgia, a bunch of mind-bending meta universe building, some awesome new characters, a few solid action scenes, and overall quite an action movie. I loved it.
Now that’s music. I can only imagine hearing that on a theater scale sound system. Although my home sound bar certainly tried it’s best…
Anyways, I know I’m behind the times. Better late than never?
Overall, it’s a solid movie that tries to make some big points about everyone having value / sticking it to the people that hate you because you’re different and… mostly hitting the mark? It gets even more complicated when you read up on Barnum’s actual history. Very much a serial ‘get rich quick’er with some questionable ethics, but there’s good parts there as well.
You know, that is a really solid movie. I know a lot of people prefer Empire, but for whatever reason, I’ve always liked Return of the Jedi more. That holds true even more, although I have to say that there are a few (possibly nostalgia fueled) particulars that I like more before the special editions changed things.
Woo! Big icy battles on land in and the sky/space around Hoth, training with a real (short) Jedi Master (and they’re all supposed to be dead), meetings between old friends–who may not be too thrilled about losing in cards all those years ago–another confrontation between Luke and Vadar, and the big bad reveal. Which… seriously. His name is literally Dark Father .
Well that’s a truly bizarre adaptation of the Nutcracker. Or I suppose all of the other versions are bizarre, given that this is supposed to be as ‘close as possible’ to the original Maurice Sendak version.
