Star Wars Episode VII – The Force Awakens

Since the whole world seems to be fixated on Star Wars these days here’s a quick rundown of my impressons of Star Wars Episode VII – The Force Awakens:

The good:

– The humor is sometimes great even fantastic. I loved the scene were two Stormtroopers wisely avoided a raging Kylo Ren. The moment when the Wall-E knockoff was doing a thumbs up with its torch was the best one of the movie
– The effects are well done
– The Stormtroppers finally can hit something in front of them
– The Midichlorians were never mentioned. On the contrary the force was again portrayed as something mystical. It’s as if Episodes 1 to 3 never happened

The mediocre/bad:

– Was there any original idea in this movie?  Let me give a short sublist of stuff …

Tron Legacy: The Sequel Review

Amazing visual effects but a stupid plot. That’s the original Tron movie in a nutshell. But that didn’t prevent from Tron becoming one of the biggest nerdy sci fi cult movies ever. So after roundabout thirty years of standby Disney made the logical decision to reboot the franchise with Tron Legacy. Was the effort worth it?

The Thor movie? Not that good. (Review)

I know there’s a plot in there that would make me care. I just cannot find it.

I’m terribly sorry!
