Morbius and Oscar Noms

Jared Leto in Morbius

So the Morbius trailer dropped and I must admit I’m more intrigued than I was (which was like maybe 2% so that wasn’t hard) but more interested in different movies and the bigger universe.

My 2019 Movies in One Sentence

the family in ready or not

As we get ready for all the new 2020 movies I thought I’d wrap up my movie year in a one sentence for each film post 🙂 I had fun looking back and doing this for 2018.

Though to keep it simple I am limiting it to 2019 theatrical releases mostly in the order I saw them.

My Fantasy Star Wars Saga Endings

Rey and Kylo in Rise of Skywalker

I was rewatching the Rise of Skywalker and I think elements of the Mandalorian could have perfectly explained the return of the Emperor!

Then I started thinking about my how it should have ended head canons and some fantasy spin-off ideas and thought why not?

Obviously spoilers for the Rise of Skywalker below. Also I’m in the middle on the movie so whether you loved it or hated it this is meant in good fun 🙂 But onto how the Emperor returned!

Star Wars The Force Awakens

Star Wars The Force Awakens

Grade A+

When The Phantom Menace came out a couple of years ago my friends and I did twelve hours in line to see the movie at midnight.

Not something I did this time though I have to admit my expectations were still sky high.

But I was for once amazingly unspoiled and yeah, the movie messed with my head a bit but I really, really don’t want to spoil it for anyone else or even take that chance. Even though there’s so much I want to say about the movie!

So what I will say is that it lived up to my high expectations (even with some faults). Seeing the old cast was wonderful and it really did feel like seeing old friends again. I also really liked the young cast. Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, and Adam Driver proved that could carry this new trilogy for me and Domhall Gleeson was someone, who I don’t think got a lot of press, but was absolutely excellent.

The music was beautiful and the locations were just gorgeous. I already want a toy version of the little droid BB-8!

I actually went with my brother who has amazingly, considering we grew up together, never seen a Star Wars movie (and was quite fine with that) but now he wants to watch the originals. So good job movie! And yep, I’m already anticipating the sequel.

Recommend: Yes.
