Ah, Star Wars, that classic syfy series that we have loved for ages. Well, except when it is ruined by a poorly made prequel. We all know that the Phantom Menace was probably the worst starwars film, but why was this movie so bad?
First of all, the age group this movie was supposed to appeal to was confusing. At first, the movie seems to only appeal to an older audience, with references to tax problems and political issues, but as the film continues it seems to only appeal to children under eight as they include characters like Jar Jar and have Anakin as a eight year old boy.
My next complaint about this movie, is the lack of character develpoment. Many good and well-known actors appeared in this movie, but their characters were dull and boring. The two main Jedi in the film seem to have no personalities or show interest in their roles. IN addition, our main villian, Darth Maul remains a mystery character the whole movie. We are given no reason to really dislike this character or believe he is evil other than he looks angry, wears black, and has a red light saber.
Overall, this film could have been a lot better if a better story line was made, and better characters with real personalities were formed. The only things I really enjoyed in this film were the scenes on the different planets. The truth is I have no desire to see this film again.
I can't really say I loved this movie. I thought that the creative magical scenes were thoroughly enjoyable, but the characters were plain, dull, and had poor actors. At first, I thought the appearance of Hemsworth would spark up the film, but even his character was poorly portrayed. Kristain Stewart may have been an accpetable actress for the popular Twilight series, but as the innocent lovable princess she did not do a great job. To me, she came off as depressed, dull, and boring. This movie could have been a lot better if there was a more stable storyline, and better character development.
I found this prequel exceptionally good. At first, the beginning of the story is a little slow, but overall the story was interesting and adventurous and was perfect to the setup of the next two movies. However, I was somewhat disappointed that the filmakers decided to split The Hobbit into three movies. While I understand that the book was very long and contained a lot of vital events in the story, I felt that it could have been shortened into at least two movies.
I enjoyed both Bilbo and Gandalph as the main characters, and thought the dwarves were a pleasant addition to the journey. I still believe that the LOTR films will always be the best films regarding this story, but the Hobbit was an enjoyable movie for any fans of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy.
While there was much criticism to the lack of accuracy to the original series, Star Trek Into Darkness is a great movie. Anyone who enjoyed the first film should be pleasantly surprised by this sequel.
For starters, Chris Pine, and Zachary Quinto do an excellent job as portraying the two friends and heros Kirk and Spock. Young Kirk once again shows his cocky yet confident leadership as Captain of the Enterprise. And Spock, his logical and loyal friend stays by his side throughout their adventures. Benedict Cumberbatch also does a great job of playing the vicious villain, Khan. Khan was an incredibly witty character, yet an extremely cold and powerful man who portrayed an excellent adversary and challenge to Kirk and his crew. This film was filled with strong emotion driven by each one of the characters that moved the audience.
The story line was fast-paced and interesting.At first, I thought that the movie was going to be bland and predictable, but I was pleasantly surprised at the suspenseful events in the story.
There were some complaints about this movie as well. Some people were displeased with the differences that occurred in this film when compared to the original series. For example, in one of the original Star Trek Movies, Spock is the one who dies in the radiation capsule, and Kirk mourns his death. Also, some were upset that the ending seen was Spock fighting hand to hand with Khan and not Captain Kirk.
Overall, this film is very exciting and thrilling. It is has a great balance of emotion and action. It is a brilliant sequel to the first Star Trek movie.
In many ways, Iron Man 3 was a good movie. Robert Downey Jr.once again does a great job of playing the arrogant, clever, yet admirable character, Tony Stark. He filled the audience with laughter as he made his usual remarks throughout the movie. It was composed of a strong story line, that was filled with many plot-twisting and action-filled events. However, some of this events in the movie could be viewed as disappointing.
For one thing our hero Tony Stark, seemed to rarely put on the suit and become the powerful hero we all know him to be, Iron Man. Just as soon as we think he is about to suit up and launch off to victory, he stumbles and is forced to fight without his armor. I know that perhaps the writers of this film were trying to make a point, that Tony could still be the hero without the metal exterior, I felt that a concluding movie to the Iron Man films should of had more action with him in the suit. In addition, I was disappointed that there wasn't an epic fight seen at the end of the movie with Stark in the suit against the Manderin.
The characters in this film were displayed very well. Almost all the characters were likable in some way. The main villain of the movie was despicable, powerful, and threatening as a good villan should be. Pepper Pots of course did a great job at being both Stark's assistant, and girlfriend. However, I felt that Pepper's character was sometimes over-played as the hero too much.
Overall, the film had a very good story, and message. Some aspects of the movie were disappointing like Iron Man not being displayed as the main hero enough, but the multiple suits, and dangerous supernatural powers of the enemies were quite thrilling. In conclusion, the Iron Man 3 was a good movie that is worth seeing, but could of had a little more.
