I’m sure you’re all wondering what my thoughts about this are… J.J. Abrams returning to the director’s chair to helm, Star Wars: Episode IX. I think it’s a good idea, honestly because I thought J.J. did a great job with The Force Awakens. I thought it was a great film so I think it’s a good idea to bring J.J. back to close the new trilogy.
In my opinion, I think J.J. should have directed episode VIII as well. I’m sure Disney wanted him to direct all three but initially, he wouldn’t go for it. This is a guy who said he’ll never direct a Star Wars movie again after The Force Awakens, so I wonder what made him changed his mind? Was it the money? Did Disney offer him a deal he couldn’t refuse? No; I don’t think it has anything to do with the money at all ’cause J.J. is already a very rich man.
Maybe he wants to come back ’cause it has something to do with “creativity”? Maybe he had a story idea in his head that he wanted to get out of? Maybe he’s just an obsessive fan of Star Wars like most of us and he loves making these movies? He just felt he needed to do one more. He knows Star Wars better than most people which is why he got the job to begin with and you can see that with The Force Awakens which I thought was an amazing film. I’m pretty sure J.J. have already seen Episode VIII: The Last Jedi, which comes out later this year, maybe J.J. had an idea after seeing the film. If he didn’t see The Last Jedi yet, I’m sure he already read the script even though he wasn’t involved with that film at all.
I think J.J. is a talented film-maker. Not sure why he gets made fun of by a lot of people. He made some good movies and good TV shows too except for Star Trek reboot which is pretty much garbage but other than that, J.J. is talented. No doubt, J.J. is a genius with visuals, effects and sound. The sound editing in The Force Awakens movie was incredible. I’m sure J.J. will do the same for episode IX.
I think it’s cool that he’s coming back. It really shows that he’s got huge passion for Star Wars like all of us. He’s a fan too.
I’m definitely looking forward to The Last Jedi later this year. Definitely gonna see that one.
Netflix has been trying to get all Star Wars movies to be made streamable, including the original trilogy and the prequels, but looks like that’s never gonna happen now. The reason is that Disney is getting their own streaming service pretty soon and everything Star Wars and everything Marvel will be moved to there.
‘Star Wars,’ Marvel Films Moving From Netflix to Disney Streaming Service
I was surprised to see that Disney actually allowed Netflix to stream, Star Wars: Rogue One — that film is gonna get pulled off of there.
Anyway, I don’t like Disney anymore. They’re no longer an interesting company. Are they trying to own everything? Seems like it. Disney is a powerful empire and it’s getting bigger.
Netflix is not all that great of a service either. You don’t need to watch Star Wars on Netflix anyways. The movies can be bought and downloaded from Itunes. If you have a Blu Ray player or just use DVD, you can watch the Star Wars movies on those things too. Even better, if you’re old school and still watch movies on VHS, you could probably watch the original Star Wars versions on VHS.
Screw Netflix. I don’t watch Netflix as much as I used to ’cause it’s no longer interesting. I only kept it ’cause of “Longmire” and “Gotham”. I like those shows.
Ya know something? For many years liberals went after conservatives for opposing “gay marriage”, opposing “abortion”, not siding with them on black on white crime, bashing Obama, etc. I can go on with this all day but they think threatening a Republican president with assassination is okay! What’s wrong with that picture? The left’s deep hatred for the “right” is getting way out of control for sure.
The left wants to accuse “conservatives” of being “too extreme” and “offensive” all the time yet liberals can be just as bad. The media gave the Duck Dynasty guys, Phil and Willie Robertson so much hell for opposing gay marriage. I’ll never forgot the way the media treated those guys, yet the media seems to be okay with liberals threatening a Republican president’s life?
I don’t see how conservatives are offensive and too extreme when it’s actually liberals that are offensive and too extreme. I mean, do liberals look at what they write to people before they hit the “post” button? A lot of liberals can really mean and harsh. They can be a lot meaner than conservatives. I’ve gotten a lot of attacks by liberals over the years. Can’t count how many times that I’ve been called a “homophobe”, “racist”, “bigot” or whatever name that FB/Twitter social networking groups have been coming up with these days.
And liberals wonder why they lose elections, right? It’s simply because they’re showing their true colors and we’re not liking it.
About this Johnny Depp thing, I understand that he was just joking but it’s never cool to joke about assassinating a president. It’s never cool to bring up the word “assassination” when talking about a president especially after the Alexandria shooting. Shouldn’t matter whether the president is a Democrat or a Republican. I condemn all threats to the president.
Depp another actor to put on the boycott list. I don’t think I’ll see a movie of his ever again ’cause I used to like him too. Not anymore. Depp maybe quick to apologize but just another one playing innocent victim and noticed how he didn’t apologize to Trump himself either? So with that being said, apology not accepted. His apology will be hard to accept since he’s a woman beater anyways. So fuck him. Time to get rid of his movies I have of his in my DVD collection. I don’t have too many of his films, just a few of them. I won’t bother seeing the new “Pirates” movie either.
Liberals have nasty temper tantrums, no doubt! And they’re getting nastier under Trump.
Here’s a few interesting tidbits, back when Ron Howard was an actor he starred in “American Graffiti” which was a film George Lucas directed before he made the first Star Wars film. Then later in the 80’s, Ron Howard directed a movie called “Willow” which was another George Lucas creation.
Now Ron will be officially directing a Star Wars film for the first time ever. Even though George Lucas isn’t involved at all, it’s still kind of cool.
I like Ron Howard, he has made some good movies over the years. I think he could pull off a Star Wars movie pretty well, trust me. I think it’s clear that he is a pretty big Star Wars fan like most of us so I’m sure he’s capable of giving us a Star Wars film that all of us would want to see. I’m sure he won’t disappoint us at all.
“Willow” was a great film and that film was kind of like Star Wars a bit. There was a lot of sword fighting in that film so I’m sure Ron is capable of putting on some entertaining as hell light saber battles.
While the cast is already all set, I’m sure Ron will add more actors to the cast. Wouldn’t it be cool if Tom Hanks get some kind of role in the film? Like maybe a cameo appearance? Would be kind of cool. Ron and Tom Hanks made a lot of movies together over the years.
While announcing the release date for “Star Wars Episode IX” which is the final film of the new Star Wars trilogy, Disney & Lucasfilm finally confirmed “Indiana Jones 5”. Best of all Steven Spielberg is returning to the director’s chair for Indy 5 and Harrison is once again playing Indy. Indy 5 is set for a July 10th, 2020 release date.
What I like the most about Indy 5 is that George Lucas is no longer in charge so that means more creative freedom for Spielberg and Ford. It’s gonna be interesting to see how Spielberg is gonna pull off an Indy film without Lucas involved for sure. I’m a huge Indiana Jones fan, loved all 4 Indy movies…. yes, I even thought, “Crystal Skull” was real good despite the negative critics of that film. I will always think “Raiders of the Lost Ark” will be the best Indy film ever made, though.
At almost 75 do you think Harrison still has what it takes to play Indy? Yes, absolutely. I think Harrison can still do action scenes and his own stunts quite well. He seems to play Han Solo quite well in, “The Force Awakens” movie. Since Han Solo is gone Harrison won’t be playing in SW: Episode 8 and 9 so it’s looking his next movie is gonna be Indy 5.
Will Indy 5 be a continuation of “Kingdom of the Crystal Skull”? Probably will but I hope they don’t bring Shia Labeouf back, though.
They need to make the next Indy movie more like “Raiders”. Make it a serious film like “Raiders” was. The next Indy movie will probably be an action movie like they all are but I hope they leave the science fiction stuff out of it this time.
I’m glad Indy 5 is finally happening ’cause Spielberg and Ford has been talking about it for years. They better get to work on it soon ’cause Harrison is getting older. I think they will get to work on it right away. Glad a new Indy film is happening, celebrate by listening to the theme song below!
At first I was kind of skeptical of Disney buying Lucasfilm. When I first heard the news, I was like, “huh” like everyone else. Now that I’ve seen “The Force Awakens” that takes place after “Return of the Jedi” and seen “Rogue One” which takes place before “Episode IV: A New Hope”, I’m beginning to see that Disney buying Lucasfilm was a good move after all. I pretty much enjoyed both “The Force Awakens” and “Rogue One” a lot. Disney surprisingly did a great job with both of those movies and I didn’t think they could pull it off. Now I look forward to every new Star Wars movie they do so hopefully they do a great job with the Han Solo standalone film that’s in the works.
In the past, I wasn’t that big on Star Wars. I like Star Wars, don’t get me wrong but I don’t “geek” out on it like a lot of die-hards. I’m more of a Star Trek geek than Star Wars but seeing “The Force Awakens” and “Rogue One” makes me want to love Star Wars a lot more.
As far as “Rogue One” goes, I thought it was a very impressive film. Loved it a lot! It was good to see the old stormtroopers again. “Rogue One” was definitely one of the best movies of this year.
I know how some Star Wars fans prefer to keep it as the original trilogy but with a story like Star Wars, you can create more stories with that franchise. More sequels, prequels and spinoffs. I wonder if Disney is gonna try to make Star Wars films that will take place between “A New Hope” and “Empire Strikes Back”. I wonder if Disney will try to make films that will take place between “Empire Strikes Back” and “Return of the Jedi”. They probably will. Now that George Lucas has retired from films and has passed the torch to Disney, expect a lot more Star Wars films to come out. Will Boba Fett get his own film? I can see that coming. Will R2-D2 and C-3PO get their own film? Yes. I think Chewbacca getting his own movie might be pretty interesting. There’s all kinds of possibilities.
I’m just so glad that Lucas is no longer in charge of Star Wars and Indiana Jones ’cause like most I too think Lucas is a horrible storyteller and bad film maker. Good riddance. I’m not a big fan of the prequel trilogy either. It turns out that “The Force Awakens” and “Rogue One” were both very successful films and hope Disney keeps up the good work.
There’s a bill that’s about to get signed in Georgia that’s sparking a lot of outrage in Hollywood. The bill is called, Free Exercise Protection…. the bill has been sent to Gov. Deal to his desk for him sign and the deadline is May 3rd. What the bill does is that it gives ministers the rights not to be forced to perform marriages on same sex couples if they don’t want to and it gives real people like myself the right not to attend a gay wedding if they don’t want to.
I don’t see how this bill is “anti-gay” ’cause all it does is that it gives people the right not to perform marriages on same-sex couples and we don’t have to attend gay weddings if we don’t want to. That doesn’t mean we hate gays just because some of us still believe that marriage should be between a man and a woman alone. There’s still a lot of us who still believe in traditional marriage like myself. Ministers shouldn’t have to get forced to perform gay weddings and we shouldn’t have to attend one if we please. I don’t see anything “anti-gay” about that bill at all.
Hollywood is fighting back ’cause I know how freakin’ “liberal” Hollywood is.
It’s a shame that anyone who disagrees with same-sex marriage is quickly judged as “anti-gay” or a homophobe.
Our freedom of expression is in danger here… we can’t speak our minds on the homosexual lifestyle, we can’t talk about Muslims however we want to and soon we’ll be called “sexist” for talking about women in a bad way. Yeah, ‘Merica.
