Star Wars Blog-a-thon: ‘A New Hope’ (Week 1)

etab-hans-solo_ford-4_3_r560_c560x380Let the countdown begin! We’re now about three weeks away from the release of the new Star Wars movie, “The Force Awakens,” and I’m super excited (but you probably knew that). ;) I had a lot of fun with my Marvel blog-a-thon earlier this year and thought it might also be fun to try the same thing with Star Wars, revisiting the previous films in the weeks leading up to the new one. For this blog-a-thon, I’ve decided to just stick with the original trilogy, since the new movie will have the closest ties to them, but I may take on the prequels at a later time. So, over the Thanksgiving break, I re-watched “A New Hope.”

Star Wars has been a pop culture staple for so long that I often forget just how groundbreaking these movies were. The special effects set a new standard for Hollywood and paved the way for future blockbusters. And regardless of how you feel about George Lucas and the prequels, Lucas did create wonderful, timeless characters and a good overarching story: a farm boy who becomes a great warrior and redeems his father from the dark side.

Although Star Wars is classified as science fiction, it’s really more of a space fantasy/Western, and that might be what helps it stand out. “Long, long ago, in a galaxy far, far away”—it’s a fascinating concept, giving the world of Star Wars a sense of ancient grandeur and also otherworldly technology beyond our current creative capabilities. You have futuristic spaceships but also old-fashioned “knights” with a strict code of honor (a.k.a. the Jedi) and the Western archetype of the wandering, gun-slinging loner (Han Solo). The world of Star Wars isn’t shiny and slick and new; it’s a little bit grimy and worn. It feels like it could be a real place people lived in.

There are also plenty of great characters introduced in the first film. Luke Skywalker is easy to identify with. He’s a dreamer who fears he’ll never go anywhere or be anything, and he’s a stubborn idealist. It’s a fact that greatly annoys the more cynical smuggler Han Solo, who was my hero growing up (and OK, maybe still is). ;) You’ve got Han’s Wookie sidekick Chewbacca, the bickering droids C-3PO and R2-D2, and also the wizened warrior Obi-Wan Kenobi. I’ve heard that Alec Guinness hated playing Obi-Wan, which is a shame because he was such a great fit, and the character brings a lot to the story. Princess Leia also is a great character and I think deserves some credit for helping to change how women are portrayed in action movies. Leia isn’t just a damsel in distress; she’s a leader, and she can hold her own in a fight.

And, of course, there’s also the villains. Darth Vader is my all-time favorite movie “bad guy”; he’s a powerful wielder of the dark side of the force, but there are more layers to his character than you first imagine. And the stormtroopers are pretty cool too, even if they aren’t always the most accurate shooters and are easily persuaded by Jedi mind tricks. ;)

The films are accompanied by what are arguably some of the greatest soundtracks of all time, thanks to John Williams. The music in “A New Hope” is both epic and beautiful, and elevates the cinematography. That iconic scene of Luke watching Tatooine’s double sunset just wouldn’t be as powerful without John Williams’ score.

“A New Hope” is an entertaining, rousing adventure, with the promise of even better things to come. The special effects still hold up very well almost 40 years later, though occasionally you catch some costumes/hairstyles that are just a little too reminiscent of the ‘70s and ‘80s. And yes, there are some errors, such as the alien’s arm bleeding after Obi-Wan slices it off with a lightsaber (the lightsaber blow should have cauterized the wound, as it does in the other movies), and some frustrating changes in the revised version (it really is OK that Han shoots first). We also don’t really get to see a full-on, elaborately choreographed lightsaber battle until the next movie.

I once read a comment from a reviewer that said while the Star Wars films may not be the best movies ever made, they are universally well-loved. Despite some of their flaws, they have plenty of hope and heart, and a grand sense of adventure. Star Wars is my personal favorite film series, and no matter how many times I watch the movies, I still feel the magic. I’m hoping “The Force Awakens” will be a worthy addition to the saga.

Movie review: ‘Mockingjay – Part 2’ ends Hunger Games saga on a grim note

hungergamesfinalheaderHunger Games victor and rebel hero Katniss Everdeen’s journey comes to an end in “Mockingjay – Part 2,” the final film in the Hunger Games saga. We’ve watched Katniss deal with the aftermath of winning the Hunger Games, where a cruel post-apocalyptic government forces teenagers to fight to the death in an arena as punishment for a failed uprising years ago. Katniss then finds herself as the unexpected head of a new rebellion, and the “girl on fire” becomes the “Mockingjay,” a symbol of defiance. However, for the rebels, victory comes with great sacrifice, and Katniss will lose some of those dearest to her in the fight.

“Mockingjay – Part 2” closes out the Hunger Games franchise on a fairly solid but grim note. It doesn’t rise to the same heights as “Catching Fire,” which arguably remains the strongest film in the series, but it quickly establishes itself as a stronger film than “Mockingjay – Part 1,” which felt more like a placeholder in the franchise. Lately Hollywood has been splitting the final books of trilogies into two parts, and the results aren’t always strong. Too much of “Mockingjay – Part 1” felt like filler. However, what’s done is done, and thankfully “Mockingjay – Part 2” improves upon its predecessor.

While I am a big fan of the Hunger Games books and movies, I did not really like the book “Mockingjay,” and it seems a number of other fans didn’t, either. It is, at times, a strange and unsettling book, and it’s different in tone from the other two books in the trilogy. The ending feels rushed and unsatisfactory, and several major character deaths are glossed over, without giving the other characters—or the readers—time to grieve. I was so frustrated with the book I actually threw it across the room after finishing it.

I actually liked “Mockingjay – Part 2” better than the book. I don’t know whether that’s because the film actually handled some of the plot issues better than the book did, or whether some of those issues just bothered me less because I already knew what was going to happen (I think it was probably a little of both). In this film, Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) leads a band of rebels into the Capitol, supposedly to shoot propaganda footage to convince the citizens of the Capitol to surrender and prevent further bloodshed. However, the unit ends up drawing heavy enemy fire and Katniss turns the operation into a mission to kill President Snow (Donald Sutherland) and end the war once and for all.

Jennifer Lawrence is great, once again, as Katniss; I really can’t imagine any other actress playing this role. There are some other great supporting players: Donald Sutherland is elegantly terrifying as President Snow; Woody Harrelson and Elizabeth Banks are great as Katniss’ mentor and stylist, Haymitch and Effie; and Sam Claflin and Jena Malone also are excellent as Finnick and Johanna, two former victors who join the rebellion. Unfortunately, they don’t get as much screen time in this film.

The special effects are good, with some truly terrifying “pods” (high-tech traps) waiting for the rebels in the Capitol. There’s not a lot of down time in this film, or moments of humor. It’s a tense rush to the finish, with some surprising twists along the way.

*Spoiler alert!*

Two parts that bothered me most about the book were the deaths of Finnick and Prim, Katniss’ younger sister. The deaths are covered hastily and without a lot of reflection for these two fan-favorite characters. These deaths are still rough in the movie, but I felt the film covered the significance of their deaths better and gave us some time to process their loss.

I also thought the film did a better job setting up the somewhat shocking ending, where Katniss ends up assassinating the rebellion’s new leader instead of President Snow. It’s up to the viewer to decide if it actually was a morally justifiable decision, but at least to me it felt like the movie made it a little clearer that the rebellion’s new leader was dangerous and could, in time, become just as terrible a tyrant as President Snow.

*End spoiler alert!*

I’m curious to see what other fans of the books, and those who are just fans of the movies, thought of this film. “Catching Fire” remains my favorite film in the franchise, but I did enjoy “Mockingjay – Part 2” more than the book it was based on. The Hunger Games series has offered some timely moral and political themes. The books and the films aren’t always comfortable or easy to process, but I do think they have something important to say. It’s too bad the two films kicking off the franchise are stronger than the films wrapping it up.

Let the countdown begin: One month to go until “The Force Awakens”

CTqji00VEAUXY9nI love “Star Wars.” That’s definitely not a secret to those who know me well — or have seen my collection of memorabilia at home. I even have a small Darth Vader figurine sitting on my desk at work. ;) I’ve loved “Star Wars” for a long time. As kids, my little brother and I would run around the backyard, pretending to be our favorite characters, and as I got older, I discovered the Expanded Universe novels, introducing me to even more characters and stories.

It’s been interesting to see how “Star Wars” has captured my imagination over the years. Other interests have come and gone, or at least faded to the background. But something about “Star Wars” continues to fascinate me, and I think it will take quite a bit to top “The Empire Strikes Back” as my all-time favorite film.

So of course I’m excited — and terrified — by the prospect of a new “Star Wars” movie. I remember when it looked like “Revenge of the Sith” would be the last of the “Star Wars” films, and the most I was hoping for was that those rumors of a live-action “Star Wars” TV show would be true. Then I remember the day this announcement came seemingly out of nowhere: Disney had purchased Lucasfilm, and we’d be getting more live-action “Star Wars” movies. The follow-up announcement that one of my favorite directors, J.J. Abrams, would be directing the new “Star Wars” movie was even better.

But as excited as I am, I’m also a little nervous. All the signs are promising: the trailer looks good — REALLY good; the cast is solid, and brings back favorite characters from the original trilogy; and I’m a big fan of J.J. Abrams’ work in general (his 2009 “Star Trek” film actually sits at No. 2 on my ranking of all-time favorite movies, right behind “The Empire Strikes Back”). However, we’ve all seen films that didn’t live up to the breathtaking promise of their trailers, and there’s so much hype for this movie that the bar has been set really, really high. Abrams had a difficult task: capturing the magic of the original trilogy but also bringing us something captivating and new. The pressure is perhaps even greater now that two of 2015’s other most anticipated films — “Age of Ultron” and “Spectre” — didn’t quite live up to all the hopes fans had for them.

Still, I have purchased my tickets, and I’m planning to walk into the theater Dec. 17 (the movie officially releases on Dec. 18 but I couldn’t resist the lure of a sneak preview showing the night before) with high hopes. Until then, it’s fun to see all the fan theories and try to dissect the trailers, which tease a lot more than they reveal.

I don’t think Luke Skywalker is actually Kylo Ren, one theory that has been floating around. We haven’t seen much of Luke in the trailers (if we’ve seen him at all) and it’s true he could have gone to the dark side. I personally hope not, since I think that would rob the ending of “Return of the Jedi” of some of its power. Luke turned his father, Darth Vader, from the dark side; I don’t want to see Luke fall to the dark side himself. There are also questions of what Han and Leia are doing now, and if the film will pick up any of the plot lines from the Expanded Universe novels, where Han and Leia are married. Could the scavenger Rey and the dark side master Kylo Ren possibly be their children (Han and Leia had twins in the books)? Is Finn really a stormtrooper, or is he an undercover Rebel or Jedi? There are so many possibilities, and I hope there won’t be any spoilers before the movie, because I want to be completely surprised.

There’s just one month to go now for “The Force Awakens” and I’m definitely counting down the days. Of course I could be wrong, but I’ve got the same gut feeling I had before the first Marvel team-up “The Avengers”: this is going to be big, and it’s going to be special. Here’s hoping the Force is with J.J. Abrams, and that “The Force Awakens” is worth the wait.

Movie review: ‘Skyfall’ proves to be tough act to follow for new Bond film ‘Spectre’

“Skyfall” is, admittedly, a tough act to follow. The 2012 James Bond film brought in more than a billion dollars at the box office worldwide and received rave reviews from both fans and critics. So it was perhaps inevitable that the follow-up, “Spectre,” would struggle to reach those same heights.

In “Spectre,” James Bond (Daniel Craig) receives a posthumous warning from the former head of MI6, M (Judi Dench), that takes him to Mexico to eliminate a target. He learns the assassin M sent him to kill is part of a shadowy criminal organization called Spectre that has ties to his previous missions in “Casino Royale,” “Quantum of Solace” and “Skyfall.” Following these threads across the globe, he ends up at a mysterious compound in the middle of the desert, where he confronts the man in charge of this organization (Christoph Waltz) — a man who has always been Bond’s greatest foe, even though he has just now learned his identity.

There are two ways to look at the latest Bond movie. Despite what the barely-fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes might lead you to believe (I think it deserves higher than the 63 percent rating it received, at least a little higher than “Quantum of Solace’s” 65 percent; the audience score of 70 percent is more on par), it is a quite entertaining movie. I’d place it behind “Casino Royale” and “Skyfall” but before “Quantum of Solace” in my ranking of Craig’s Bond films.

It has a great opening sequence in Mexico, where the screen is bursting with colorful costumes and decorations for a Day of the Dead celebration. Daniel Craig is great, as always, as the famous British spy, and he remains my favorite actor to portray Bond. There are some good supporting players, such Ben Whishaw as Q, Naomie Harris as Eve Moneypenny, and newcomer Dave Bautista, who recently played Drax the Destroyer in “Guardians of the Galaxy.” Bautista is obviously having fun as a Spectre assassin who trails Bond across the globe, most memorably instigating a fight on a train. Andrew Scott, who plays Moriarty in the BBC’s “Sherlock,” also shows up as a not-to-be-trusted British official (and has likely inspired some Bond/Sherlock crossover fan fiction).

However, as a follow-up to “Skyfall,” it’s tough not to compare “Spectre” to the previous film, starting with the opening title sequence. I love Sam Smith as a vocalist, and I think he is a good choice to sing a Bond theme song. But “Writing’s on the Wall” lacks the brooding, atmospheric power of Adele’s “Skyfall.” Christoph Waltz also is a fine actor, but I wish he had been given more to work with as the main villain (hint: he’s playing a very famous character from Bond lore). His villain doesn’t seem as dangerous or unhinged as Javier Bardem’s Silva, and his “big reveal,” the fact he’s responsible for all the problems — and misery — in Bond’s life, doesn’t pack as much of a punch as it should. I feel Lea Seydoux, who was great in a small role in “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol,” could have been given a little more to work with as well, though it’s nice to see modern “Bond girls” who are capable of holding their own.

While “Spectre” isn’t as psychologically deep or daring as “Skyfall,” I did like the point the new M (Ralph Fiennes, who takes over nicely for Judi Dench) makes about the difference between real spies and surveillance technology. Real flesh-and-blood spies can make moral decisions in the field that machines aren’t capable of, such as when Bond (spoiler alert!) decides not to shoot the villain at the end of the film.

In short, for fans of the Bond franchise, “Spectre” is a fun, entertaining spy film that’s worth catching in the theater, even though it doesn’t live up to its full potential. While we’ll almost certainly be seeing Christoph Waltz’s villain again, there’s still some speculation about whether or not this was Craig’s last outing as Bond. I’m hoping it’s not, because I’d like to see Craig go out with a bigger bang than “Spectre” delivered.

Catching up on “Once Upon a Time”…

once-upon-a-time2015 has been a bit of a hectic year for me, to say the least. ;) Getting married, living in a new town, starting a new job, and moving (twice) wreaked havoc on my schedule for a while, so it’s been nice to get back to a normal routine and pick up some of my hobbies again, like blogging and watching movies/TV shows. I’m still way behind on “The Flash” and “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” but after some prodding from a coworker, I’m now trying to get caught up with “Once Upon a Time.” :) Thanks to Hulu, I’m now working through the current season (season 5).

I resisted “Once Upon a Time” when it first came out, even though the premise sounded interesting to me. It’s basically a mash-up of all the classic Disney fairytale characters, like Snow White, Prince Charming, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, and more. However, the show presents these characters in new and unexpected ways. When we first meet them, they are trapped in our world in a village called Storybrooke. They’ve been cursed by the evil queen, Regina (Lana Parrilla), and none of them remember their previous lives in the fairytale world. A visitor named Emma (Jennifer Morrison) learns she has unexpected ties to this town—and its residents—and her son, Henry, helps her unlock magical powers she didn’t realize she had.

I guess the reason I resisted watching it is because I tend to be a little skeptical of new shows. Starting a new TV show is a bigger time investment than just sitting down to watch a two-hour movie, and I’m always afraid I’ll fall in love with a TV show that gets canceled too soon (“Firefly”—it still hurts!) or I’ll invest my time in a couple seasons of a new show, only to have it jump the shark. But people kept recommending “Once Upon a Time” to me, and I’m glad I finally gave it a try. It’s not a perfect show and yes, sometimes it is a little cheesy and over-the-top, but it has been a lot of fun and includes some great characters.

The thing I like best about “Once Upon a Time” is, undoubtedly, the characters. At first it’s just fun seeing where well-known Disney characters and villains will show up and how they’ll be portrayed in a live action setting. But it’s even more fun seeing how the show deviates from the traditional plot lines; for example, the Snow White in this story starts out as a sort of Robin Hood type character who is a lot more action-oriented than the character in the animated movie, and it’s not actually love at first sight for her and “Prince Charming.” Red Riding Hood is revealed as a werewolf (she turns out to be the wolf in her own story); Belle falls in love the Beast…who turns out to be Rumpelstiltskin; and Peter Pan is a villain, not a hero.

I really liked the set-up of the first season, which features flashbacks of the characters in their fairytale world, in addition to their current lives in the “real world” in Storybrooke. It’s fun trying to guess which fairytale characters the residents of Storybrooke actually are.

Another detail I like is that the “Once Upon a Time” retelling is often less black and white than the original stories. Sometimes the “perfect” heroes Snow White and Prince Charming make morally questionable choices, and villains still have redeeming qualities. In fact, the best characters are arguably the ones who are the most morally complex—the villains who have crossed over to the light but still sometimes flirt with the dark side. Lana Parrilla is my favorite actress on the show, simply because she has so much fun with the role of the evil queen Regina. She proves no one is beyond redemption and even becomes a hero later on in the show, though thankfully she never loses her trademark snark. In this version, Captain Hook is a suave, charming, but not-quite-trustworthy pirate, and Robert Carlyle also is excellent as the conflicted Rumpelstiltskin, who can’t quite escape the lure of dark magic and the promise of power.

The show does have some weaknesses, though, and some viewers might find it a bit too over-the-top at times. Since I’ve watched the equivalent of two seasons in about a month, I noticed the show does rely too much on some of the same plot devices. It’s a running joke among fans that every season the characters seem to end up getting their memories wiped and showing up in some new place without having any idea how they got there. Some of the plot twists don’t always work, either. The “Frozen” tie-in in season 4 felt a little too forced and more like a marketing stunt, and a subplot that involved Ursula, Cruella, and Maleficent teaming up didn’t quite work, since Cruella didn’t really feel like she belonged in the fairytale world.

Still, the show remains interesting, and this current season turns one of the biggest heroes into a dangerous villain and transports the cast to Camelot, where we get a new interpretation of the famous legend of King Arthur. And, of course, in typical “Once Upon a Time” fashion, Arthur turns out to be not quite who he says he is.

Do you watch “Once Upon a Time”? What do you think of the show?

My favorite (not-so-scary) movies for Halloween

maxresdefaultI always get excited for Halloween. I like the decorations, the costumes, and, of course, the candy. But I’m not as excited for scary movies, and I must confess I’m a real wimp when it comes to horror films. The last film I watched that could even sort of count as a horror film was “The Mothman Prophecies,” and it terrified me way more than it should have. ;) So, here are some of my favorite movies for Halloween that are spooky but not quite so scary.

Shaun of Dead

While “Hot Fuzz” is my favorite film from British director Edgar Wright, “Shaun of the Dead” is probably his most famous and is a ton of fun. Starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, the film is about two not-so-bright friends who are clueless about the start of the zombie apocalypse. Once they finally realize that the people around them have started turning into the walking dead, they survive by taking refuge in their favorite pub. This film is a great blend of British comedy and the zombie genre, and Pegg and Frost work fantastically together, as always. If you’re looking for a fun Halloween movie marathon, you can pair it with the other two films in Wright’s unofficial “Cornetto trilogy”: “Hot Fuzz,” about a big city police officer who uncovers a dark secret in a small town, and “The World’s End,” which features a pub crawl that accidentally triggers the end of the world.


“If there’s something strange in your neighborhood, who you gonna call?” Why the Ghostbusters, of course! This classic 1980s comedy is about a dysfunctional crew of paranormal exterminators, led by Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd. After they are fired from the university where they work, they start their own paranormal investigation business. I actually saw this movie for the first time last year while working through my “movie bucket list.” Although some of the special effects are a bit dated now, this movie is still a lot of fun, and there are plenty of memorable lines. My favorite part of the movie was watching Bill Murray, who is a master of deadpan delivery. And while we’ve seen New York under attack plenty of times from various monsters, aliens, and robots, “Ghostbusters” gives us something new in the form of a giant “Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.”

Arsenic and Old Lace

A good friend of mine first discovered this movie and introduced me to it. Released in 1944, “Arsenic and Old Lace” is a surprisingly twisted comedy, at least for its time. Cary Grant stars as a man who pays a visit to his aunts on Halloween, discovering that they’ve been killing off old men, supposedly to save them from loneliness. The film features a variety of madcap characters, including one brother who thinks he’s Teddy Roosevelt and another brother who had bad plastic surgery that makes him look like Frankenstein’s monster. It definitely is a quirky movie, but it’s also very funny and different. It’s a good classic Halloween comedy.

Monsters Inc.

“Monster’s Inc.” is my favorite Pixar movie, and the monsters in the movie are definitely more lovable than scary. Billy Crystal and John Goodman voice monsters Mike and Sulley, whose friendship is tested when Sulley accidentally lets a human girl escape into the monsters’ world. The world of “Monster’s Inc.” is colorful and fun, and Crystal and Goodman’s banter keeps adults entertained. While the follow-up “Monsters University” isn’t quite as good (it shows how Mike and Sulley became friends in college), it has some funny moments and is an entertaining follow-up for fans.


“Hellboy” is a dark, unconventional take on the superhero genre, directed by Guillermo del Toro. Hellboy is an unlikely hero: he looks like a demon and shaves off his horns to make himself appear less threatening. Though he’s misunderstood by the world, he still works to protect it, fighting paranormal threats with the Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense. It’s been a while since I’ve seen this movie, but I remember being struck by its unique, haunting tone and memorable characters. It’s interesting to watch a character who has to fight the assumptions people make based on his appearance; to them he looks like a villain, but he chooses to defy that stereotype.

So, what are some of your favorite scary (or not-so-scary) films for Halloween?

Marvel Blog-a-thon: Wrap-up and revised ranking

avengers-dvd002Well, this officially wraps up my Marvel blog-a-thon. I hadn’t ever done a blog-a-thon before but it turned out to be a lot of fun, and I’d like to thank everyone who followed along. After re-watching all the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, I found my new ranking didn’t change a lot from the old one. Here’s the revised rank:

1. Iron Man (2008)
2. Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)
3. Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)
4. The Avengers (2012)
5. Iron Man 3 (2013)
6. Ant-Man (2015)
7. Thor (2011)
8. Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)
9. Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)
10. Iron Man 2 (2010)
11. The Incredible Hulk (2008)
12. Thor: The Dark World (2013)

The top three were really tough. “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “The Winter Soldier” are so close to being my favorite Marvel movie, but it’s hard for me to bump “Iron Man.” He’s my favorite Avenger, and it was the first MCU movie I saw. “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “The Winter Soldier” haven’t been around as long, but I bet they will hold up well over time.

“Iron Man 3” and “Ant-Man” ended up basically tied for No. 5. “Ant-Man” was a really fun surprise and it’s my favorite movie of 2015 so far, but I felt like “Iron Man 3” had a more interesting villain so it just slightly edges past “Ant-Man” on the list. Re-watching “Ant-Man” another time might change this, though!

I struggled with where to put “Age of Ultron” on the list and finally settled on No. 9. I wanted to like it a lot more than I did, but I just don’t see myself re-watching it as often as the films above it on the list. I have high hopes for “Captain America: Civil War”; hopefully some of the themes teased in “Age of Ultron” will be more fully fleshed out there.

I know “Iron Man 2” probably shouldn’t be as high as it is on the list, but I’ve just accepted that I seem to like it a lot more than everybody else does. ;) “The Incredible Hulk” did edge past “Thor: The Dark World.” While I really like the Thor/Loki dynamic in “The Dark World,” I think “The Incredible Hulk” has a better overall plot.

I joked with my husband that I won’t know what to do with my free time now that I’m done with the Marvel movies. ;) I’m thinking it might be fun to revisit the original “Star Wars” trilogy before “The Force Awakens.”
