star wars the last jedi

A film by Rian Johnson

Rey (Daisy Ridley) tries to find luke Skywalker (Mark Hamil) to find out what is going on with her inside of her and to embark on this adventure with the gang that unlocks mysteries of the Force and secrets of the past.

Finally it has arrived and I was going to do a review yesterday but something came up. Here are character-packed extravaganza that picks up at the end of “Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens” and guides the series into unfamiliar territory with a few surprises. And yes fans you  are going to love it. Don’t worry the mythology follows what George Lucas has built.

The first part of stars wars deals with Lea and the resistance trying to destroy a main ship and running away from the Empire. The other part is Rey trying to convince the self-exiled Jedi master Luke Skywalker , to overcome his grief at failing a group of young Jedi trainees and rejoin the Resistance. And yes in the mix there is Darth Vader-obsessed apprentice Kylo Ren (Adam Driver). Yes there are the usual suspects but I am going to be vague even not say much after that.

The story telling goes where it is supposed to go even end it where it is suppose to go which is to be followed by the 9th one. The special effects are out standing and even beautiful at times. The surprises make sense and you will see why when you see the film. It is down perfect this film and let’s hope they can do the same for the next one. The thing is the unexpected death of Carrie Fisher, thank god they gave her more screen time on that one. R.I.P Carrie Fisher. Yes it has humour in it and I expected that but the ending of the film I knew it was the only way to go. Until next time.

LOOPER (2012)

A film by Rian Johnson.
Cast: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Emily Blunt.
In the year 2044, a man working for a group of killers called “Loopers” (they work for the mob and kill people who are sent blindfolded back in time from the year 2074 by their bosses) recognizes a victim as himself. He hesitates resulting in the escape of his older self.
Rian Johnson’s “Looper,” a smart sci-fi story most time travel story makes mistakes specially toward the end even in between. This film leads to a startling conclusion that wipes out the story’s paradoxes so neatly it’s as if it never happened. The thin-air guy, who was bound and hooded, is a man from the future who has been sent back in time to be assassinated. The shotgun guy is known as a “Looper.”He has been sent back into time to be the trigger man. Eventually, when he grows old enough, he will be sent back in time to be killed by his own younger self. This is known as “closing the loop.”Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays Joe, the triggerman in 2044. Bruce Willis plays Old Joe, sent back from the future. Old Joe arrives without a hood, and Young Joe hesitates when he realizes his latest target is … himself. He knew that would happen eventually (it’s part of the deal), but a hood would have prevented him from knowing which victim was himself. Old joe knock out little joe and takes off. I do not want to give more then that of course there a little romance here and there.Time travel may be logically possible if you travel very fast but to me nothing is impossible,but once we allow a film to use it, we have to be grateful if it makes sense according to its own rules. But if you change time what would happen? That is the big question. would you do thing differently?
