I love Star Wars so it is a no brainer that I’ll be watching the The Force Awakens. I’m quite excited for it compared to the last three that came out. I am glad George Lucas has nothing to do with these new movies since he has no clue why the first three were successful. If I ever got around to stumbling across In the Heart of the Sea, I imagine I would find it entertaining and it does star Thor. I am not sure there is enough to make me watch it willingly. A remake of Point Break seems highly unnecessary. I almost fell asleep watching the trailer for MI-5. Close Range and Extraction both have lead actors that are missing the crucial charisma needed to be an action hero. Extraction seems worse since it also has the horrible actress from Haywire and Bruce Willis looks like he’s phoning it in for a paycheck.

You might have heard that there is a new Star Wars movie coming out that is set 30 years after Return of the Jedi. Also of important note, Jar Jar Binks is not in it.

Herman Melville’s Moby Dick only told half the story, this film tells all of it including the aftermath of the crew trying to survive for 90 days, thousands of miles from home.

Director: Ericson Core
Remake that is missing the excellent casting of Keanu Reeves and Gary Busey.
