This is an aside from my usual here. Please don’t hate me if you’re a Star Wars fan. I have been a fan too, and …
I ♥LOVE HARRISON FORD♥. As he has matured and improved over the years I love him more. He is such a great actor, and so easy to admire.
Having said all that – I was glad to learn he was doing another Star Wars movie; I was happy to sit in the theatre to see him … uh, the newest Star Wars movie, to experience what thrilling thing was going to happen on the big screen … but, well, to be honest, I came away annoyed and disappointed, and miffed, asking … what was all the hype about?
Yes, Harrison Ford was in it as Han Solo – older and still his usual great. In case you haven’t yet seen the movie I won’t say what I was disappointed in regarding his role. Also, I found this movie to be even more chopped up than the others before it. Fast and jumping from scene to scene, and a little stranger in a different way than I was ready for, perhaps.
All in all, I suppose it was a good movie. I don’t think it was worth the HUGE record-breaking amount of money it pulled in, though. The movie ended in such a way that it left room for another one to come after it with younger actors obviously willing to continue the saga.
In closing, never mind me. As you will recall, I have a little trouble with change .. and I’m working on that. :)
Oh yes! PS: What’s with Concussion starring Will Smith? I didn’t see the movie yet, just the previews/trailers and the Awards hype around it. Will Smith wasn’t nominated for an Oscar for his role as Dr. Omalu? Wow! I was sure he would … just from the little I’d seen of the movie. Yep. Hollywood doesn’t make sense.
Just my opinion. What’s yours?
Also, I haven’t read Concussion or any of the Star Wars books. Have you? If so, which is better, the movie(s) or the book(s)?
Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings! :)
