Yesterday being May the 4th, Disney Plus released Star Wars part the 9th the Rise of Skywalker.
I watched it with my son.
Okey dokey, it looks great and there were some good bits but in truth it basically ignores the whole of the previous film and there are so many huh? Why? WTF? moments that even my 8 year old son was astute enough to say "but that doesn't make any sense because......"
I've always struggled with Star Wars as when I was a kid I loved it but as an adult it's always been bollocks, entertaining bollocks but bollocks all the same.
The final film (Dear God please let part 9 be the final one!!) is good looking but utterly bollocks bollocks.
I watched Annihalation the other night. Visually great, very strange story though. I also watched One Upon a Time in Hollywood. Why did Tarantino base it around a true story but then mess with it? I could have worked without the back story he based it on.
