What movie would you like me to review this week?

After waiting 10 years for a new Star Wars movie, JJ has taken over and built up massive hype to revive the franchise. Including new visuals, stories, and characters, The Force Awakens does well...but sometimes not every moviegoer has the same critically praising opinions as critics and other fanboys of Star Wars.

Story:

Several years after the events of Return of the Jedi, Luke Skywalker has gone missing and a new empire known as the First Order rises from the original Empire after its defeat, vowing to not stop until every Jedi is dead.

In the beginning, we see Rebel Resistance pilot Poe Dameron meeting with a companion that gives him a small device that poses significance of searching for any of the remaining Jedi. It isn’t until The First Order creates an ambush and leader Kylo Ren kidnaps the pilot. One of the Stormtroopers, however – cannot bear the trauma and chaos The First Order delivers, and decides to escape the reign of the dark side.

Along the way is a girl Rey, strong-willed and sort of resembles a female Luke Skywalker based on mannerisms and her slow transition into a much stronger character with a surprise twist in the middle of the movie.

Soon, all three meet up together along with a likely group of old friends from the original Star Wars movies that will band together to take out Kylo Ren and The First Order, while protecting the droid with the clue to Skywalker’s whereabouts.


Pros:

Daisy Ridley and Oscar Isaac are the only stars in the movie who really stand out. Daisy as the adventrous and rebellious Rey and Isaac as the wisecracking badass Rebel pilot Poe Dameron.

The visuals are amazing (the space fights, the large creatures in the Millenilum Falcon, the new Death Star’s laser)

Bringing back the old cast (Harrison Ford, Carrie Fischer, Peter Mayhew).

Some good character development involving Rey, Poe, and the new Resistance. 

The supporting villain General Hux is powerful with his speech to the First Order when they are about to wage war with the Resistance.

CGI with certain characters (Clerk that Rey goes for metal money, Supreme Leader Snoke, and other supporting roles who help out Han Solo and the Resistance.)

The script is better than some of the original trilogies’ dialogues and has improved from the prequels.

The movie is fun with its sense of humor and visually striking battles.

The twists and turns, such as Kylo Ren being a former son of Han Solo and Luke Skywalker exiling himself after Kylo Ren turns to the dark side is surprising.


Mixed:

Finn is an all right character, goes from traumatized by the First Order’s cruel and violent actions toward anyone affiliated with the Rebels to being some sort of happy go lucky hero. Poorly developed but could have had a better start with Finn and a better actor to portray the role.

The story moves at a slow pace until the newcomers meet up with some of the rebels and the old allies feels rushed.

The friendship between Rey and Finn feels forced, but could progress a little better.

How the hell do these characters know how to fly the Millenium Falcon? If this was a real situation, nobody would even know how to pilot a ship like that!


Cons:

Kylo Ren and the actor who plays the villain is one of the most critical mistakes ever made in this movie. Where Darth Vader showed plenty of power, discipline, and was super calm under pressure and receiving bad news, Kylo Ren is so weak – He walks like a Californian surfer, throws tantrums like a little child and has a monotone Batman voice when interrogating his victims.

Han Solo was killed off too quickly and it was obvious and predictable as to what was going to take place that moment when Han Solo confronts his son, convincing him to change back to the light side.

There isn’t too much background about how the First Order was established after the fall of the Empire.

There was only one lightsaber duel in the end, and it was TERRIBLE. It looked more like horror icons going at each other than a real, intense fight with REAL Jedi and Sith knights fighting.

Felt like a style-over-substance type of movie, with the story being less of a concern in the movie and visuals being important.  

The Stormtroopers are lame as well. In the original movies, the Stormtroopers were more combat hard and authentically genetically controlled soldiers while in this movie they act like rookies and are more like video gamers who were transported into a virtual reality.

Lor San Tekka (Max von Sydow) was only in the movie to advance the plot, but could have been useful later on in the movie..

Seeing this in IMAX for the first time, I was really impressed with what had been done with The Force Awakens and the direction it took into starting a new trilogy, but unfortunately, I lost my enthusiasm after the second viewing, but still have hopes that Episode 8 will be better than this one.

I will give this movie a 3/5, and my verdict for this movie would be an IMAX 3D theater for those who haven't seen the film already and want to be mind-blown by the visuals and action sequences, or if people just want to wait until DVD/Blu-Ray to watch the movie for themselves. 

Have a great 2016!

STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS - SPOILER REVIEW!
My first movie review of 2016! Originally was going to make a video about this, but decided to post reviews on YouTube ONLY for movies that already came out in January. This is a COMPLETELY MAJOR SPOILER review. DO NOT READ if you have NOT SEEN THE MOVIE.

Have fun reading!

Happy New Year ladies and gentlemen, hope everybody has very long-lasting goals and resolutions to make outstanding achievements in their lives. :)

It's been awhile since I stepped into the spotlight because of lack of creativity, so I decided that I will start something new on DeviantART.

Movie Reviews! :D

For those of you who have known me for a long time (new up and coming watchers will see what I mean later on), I'm a really big fan of movies. Most of my old original characters that I have developed when I first joined this website back in 2012 have been inspired by many movies and some television shows that I have watched as a kid or during high school. For example, one of my first original characters named after me is developed by Superman in Man of Steel and SRMTHFG. Looking back at those days make me smile, but I decided that it was time to move on and commit to a hobby that I'm really happy with. 

Now getting straight to the point, not only do I write movie reviews for the sake of speaking my mind about a particular movie that I enjoyed, but also to encourage people to watch the movie for themselves and give their opinion about it later on. Additionally, reviewing movies allows me to give insight about the flaws and errors about characters, direction, script, or the locations used. 

I started back in late 2012 since I was tired of doing role play and fanfiction, under the name "Daily Night Critic" on Facebook and on this page. I only reviewed movies that had plenty of buzz and hype (The Avengers, Expendables, The Dark Knight Rises, etc.) along with massively underrated movies (Paul Walker's Running Scared, John Carpenter's Ghost of Mars, etc.). I wasn't invested in the social network idea at the time because of my belief of social networking being a bad place to start your own Movie Review page but also lack of time and effort to put in to giving my thoughts about films. 

A few months ago, I got back on the grid of reviewing movies as I started my film journal of 2015 and did my own reviews over here.

I'm even going to post my movie reviews on YouTube, after plenty of inspiration from reviewers like Nostalgia Critic (Known for using various characters and obtaining a comical attitude to his reviews), Chris Stuckmann (Great movie reviewer who goes into great detail with flicks, good or bad) and Jeremy Jahns (fast talking and pretty brief). 

Once again, Happy New Year to all my old watchers and friends on here, and hope that you don't let your dreams be dreams. (Shia LaBeouf)

2016!

For the time being, I'm sticking to writing, as I have a couple of short stories and poems up already.

And just for fun, you guys can ask me whatever you want, as I'm doing some sort of Q&A out of boredom.

A dark blue horizon was the first thing the man set his eyes on. He was pulled beneath this world – the world of clarity. The feeling was shallow, but the surroundings were deep.

Underwater, he felt immune. Immune from the dangers of oxygen deprivation. The fears were washed away by the tranquility that grappled onto the man. He couldn’t be harmed.

But it would only be a matter of time before he realized that he wasn’t being pulled into heaven – he was being pulled into hell.

It all came back to him – the troubles of his past.

That house he used to build for himself – his own dream house that once was luxurious now turned into a wasteland. He wasn’t able to return to his own personal creation, because of the terrible next-door neighbors.

The love of his life wasn’t what he expected it to be. He wasn’t a jock, but he wasn’t a geek. Just a typical human being who is his own Prince Charming. And that Prince Charming happened to rescue the wrong girl of his dreams at the wrong place at the wrong time. She cheated on him, secretly followed men that were more “interesting”. Jocks, criminals, maybe sadists. It wasn’t until he found his girlfriend in bed with a man that used to be his best friend. A trusting, loyal, kind-hearted man turned into an enemy.

His boss at work chewed him out of his job despite all the effort he put into managing jobs for the poor who need money for child support, for investments, or because they’re corrupted by money people are uncertain of what to do with cash aside from luxurious things that won’t be of any good use except for temporary pleasure. His co-workers never stood up for him, except for one, who had put all his respect and faith into the man, the same way the latter had given him every bit of help possible.

He tried to shut it all out – and attempted to recreate his series of events.

What if he was more faithful to his girlfriend? It wouldn’t happen. No matter how many times he would go out of his way to make his girl happy, she would still make him feel like shit.

What if he worked hard enough and was more honest with his boss? It wouldn’t happen. Everybody has their own ups and downs – its part of human psychology. But his boss was more of a hard-ass control freak than a man who would encourage his employees with pep talks and respect to keep pushing forward.

What if he became overdefensive with his own built house? Definitely not likely. The neighbors would either turn their heads away and look down at him, or just have a couple of reckless assholes vandalize his property.

Anger towards his girlfriend? A confirmed path to insanity. Even in his mind, the man would never get out with a clear mind and whatever is left of his sanity. There is always someone out there in the world he could accidentally run into.

He couldn’t shut it out, and the man kept sinking. The entity pulled him by his foot, and all the man could do was flail his arms into the air helplessly.

But…he shut his eyes.

It was a moment of surrender, and he couldn’t keep fighting anymore. All those memories, all the spiders that crawled inside of his head, it was inevitable. Just another pull and the man would drown in his own poison of self-hate.

It all came quickly – flashbacks of his ex-best friend and the jobs he used to have. Being ridiculed by the wrong people. Thoughts of vengeance towards the world. Taking drastic action to be accepted by the public. It would never work out.

But, as soon as he opened his eyes – it was all clear.

Nothing pulled him underwater anymore. He was free. He did not just feel free, he was free. Looking up to the surface, the man moved his arms in circular motions. He pulled his knees to his chest, and kicked.

He kept cycling his arms as if the world around him disappeared, and was left behind.

With a ray of hope beaming down on him, the man created a gateway to paradise.

He wasn’t afraid to fight anymore. He did it already.

He wasn’t afraid to gain control anymore. He did it already.

He wasn’t afraid to survive in the darkest moments of his life. He did it already.

Everything would be clear in the long run.

With an open mind and enough sanity to become the most positive man on the planet.

He broke the surface, and what lied ahead of him was an island.

Time to begin again. 

Time to swim.

Pulled Deep Into The Abyss.
For anyone who ever feels like shit and is lacking confidence temporarily, read this short story. It isn't very powerful, but keep reading this and you'll get a simplistic idea of what learning from your mistakes in the past can be like - making you a stronger person.

So do yourself a favor - don't be scared. Be free to fuck up, look back at your errors, and say "Hey, I did my best. Now, I move on."
