McCoy / Spock dialogue
Jack Anderson May 11, 2020, 11:05 ET

While the episode itself is not great, that scene between McCoy and Spock was truly excellent. The acting, the tone, the words, everything.

1917 Review
Jack Anderson January 25, 2020, 05:01 ET

Today, we have seen 1917. A different kind of film. Here is our exclusive review.

THE TRUTH
War films have an intrinsic quality that separate them from the other genres. By getting rid of all the social barriers and mundanity of life, war films go straight to the heart. There is no need to open the door for anyone, no need for sharing a smile or keep up with any appearances. War is the most brutal form of life. A removal of everything and perhaps even the retirement of life itself. War is death. The ultimate and most frightening death.
To such an extent, that there is a beauty that comes out of it. An essential core that brings out the truth of the emotions. You cannot lie in the face of death. And war films tend to depict that in the most essential way.
I remember watching Peter Jackson's documentary "They Shall Not Grow Old", in which some soldiers explained that after World War I, they couldn't go back to the real life. How can you face death in the most brutal of ways in the middle of the nature and then come back to the mundane? Some never could.

ONE SHOT
And this brings me to 1917. As a moviegoer and admirer of Sam Mendes, I especially wanted to see the film because of one reason. I was told it was an almost uninterrupted shot. Avid of such filmmaking techniques, I couldn't wait to see the result.
Well, to say that I was impressed would be an understatement.
The result is so profound that it makes you even wonder why the camera would cut.
This is special effects pushed to its glory. Meaning that you literally cannot see it. No 3D effects or anything like that. Just a concrete way that actually supports the story.

YOU ARE THE 3RD SOLDIER
The movie is extremely similar to Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk. Like Dunkirk, 1917 focuses on time. As filmmaker Nolan said once in an interview, suspense is a very powerful way to tell a story. And clearly 1917 uses that. The film embarks you in a journey, in which you are part of the story. You truly become the third character in the film. You are a soldier and you live the story. This is the beauty of cinema versus other mediums. There is nothing as immersive as living a story in a movie theater – except of course living that story yourself.

THOMAS NEWMAN
Thomas Newman, which I discovered as a kid when he moved me in The Shawshank Redemption, is once again taking the task to compose the soundtrack from Sam Mendes' new film. The result is also clearly supporting the story. Once again, there are no gimmicks in this film. Many reviewers said the opposite and I strongly disagree.

VERDICT
I give the film 9 out of 10. Outstanding. Sam Mendes is proving, once again, that he is a very talented filmmaker.

It's official.

Following the merger with Fox last year, Disney announced that it is retiring the Fox brand.

This means that 20th Century Fox film studio will become 20th Century Studios. Meanwhile, Fox Searchlight Pictures will simply become Searchlight Pictures.

Our review of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker
Jack Anderson December 21, 2019, 02:12 ET

That's it. The end of yet another trilogy. Come to think of it, this is the end of a trilogy of trilogies.

PREVIOUSLY, ON STAR WARS
Let me get this straight, I loved The Force Awakens, which I've rewatched a couple of days ago. It is fresh, fun, cool and most importantly, recaptures the magic of the original trilogy – which itself is magical.
I thought J.J. Abrams did a wonderful job, everything felt alive and true. That was really profound.
Then, The Last Jedi was very interesting and while not as good its predecessor, it took risks which did not all paid off but, at least, it was a true film on its own.

THE LOST MAGIC
Which brings me to The Rise of Skywalker. I went into the movie theater knowing virtually nothing about the film. Or, actually, knowing too much already. While I haven't watched any trailer, I saw Lando Calrissian on the poster. And then I saw on a couple of headlines that Senator slash Emperor Palpatine would be back, which definitely made me feel odd.

PALPATINE
Why bring Emperor Palpatine? I gave the movie the benefit of the doubt and was surprised to see his name appearing in the first text presentation of the film. So... let me get this straight, the key to this new trilogy, the entire climax, is to kill Palpatine? Seriously?

PULL THE STRINGS!
I liked the darkness of the film, especially in the opening scene. That dark planet was as cool as coolness itself. Going inside the crashed Death Star? Sublime! Going inside the house of Luke Skywalker? So cool! But that was pretty much it. The Rise of Skywalker is style over substance. I never felt the same way I felt in the first two films of this trilogy. Everything felt fabricated and... not true. Filmmaker J.J. Abrams pulls the strings and, this time, we can see those. It worked pretty well in The Force Awakens, but here, it fails, a lot.

ROSE
What is great is that the producers learned the lesson from The Last Jedi and reduced the character of Rose to its minimum. Also, she got a new costume which made her look way less annoying.

CHARLIE
I simply hated to see Dominic Monaghan in a small role. What is really ironic is that his character appears... in a jungle. This felt like a crossover between LOST and Star Wars and completely out of place. I know it's unfair to the actor, but LOST was that popular that obviously everyone will think like myself – my girlfriend's reaction said it all: "What?!"

KILL ME, I KILL YOU, SAVE ME, I SAVE YOU
What I did not like as well was the countless times Rey and Ben fought each other in this film, then killed each others, then saved each others, then saved each others again. This was so much that I felt bad for the audience and could read their mind: this is too much. We crossed the barriers of scifi too much. There was no more science in fiction.

NO ONE DIES AND WE GET NO RESOLUTION
Since this was the last film of the trilogy, it would have been a perfect time to actually kill one of the three main characters from the resistance. Rey, Poe and Finn all live at the end of the film.
But most importantly, and I'll end my review here, we never got the chance to witness the climax of the relation between Rey and Finn. That is very, very sad, as their chemistry worked like magic in the first film. But since then, they have been separated by the story and I think this was a major mistake. They should have been reunited in the third film and in a way, they never were.

VERDICT
Each film of this new trilogy was worse than the previous. You can sense that J.J. Abrams loved the original material and did his best to make a great conclusion. Unfortunately, there were not so many risks taken, and by following too much the original work, he lost his way in his journey.
I give it 4 out of 10. Average.

Wonder Woman 1984 Trailer & Music
Jack Anderson December 12, 2019, 05:12 ET

Warner Bros. released the trailer from Wonder Woman 1984 only four days ago, and already the video has been watched more than 16 million times on YouTube. Netflix fans will surely think this is a mashup between WW and Stranger Things season 3. The 80's are cool again, but actually, come to think of it, the 80's were always cool!

Watch it below and tell us what you think:


Many are watching the trailer as a loop because of the apparently addictive soundtrack. For those wondering, the original song is Blue Monday by New Order. Listen to it below:


Wonder Woman 1984 hits theaters on June 5, 2020.


 
 
Black Widow First Trailer
Jack Anderson December 10, 2019, 04:12 ET

After much anticipation, Marvel Studios has released the trailer from Black Widow. Fun anecdote, even Scarlett Johansson herself was not aware of the release of the trailer and was informed about it when she woke up and saw a text from Chris Evans sent at 5am telling her he liked the trailer.

Watch it below and tell us what you think:

How to know when a sitcom is bad?
Just remove the laugh track.


 
 
The Irishman, the Series
Jack Anderson December 8, 2019, 03:12 ET

Yes, The Irishman is painfully slow and excruciatingly long. And yes, I'll say the word, and I apologize to Mr. Scorsese, De Niro, Pacino and Pesci. They are all idols of me and it is very hard for me to say it, but I found The Irishman boring. There, I said it.

Following that shared feeling, someone on Twitter had the idea to break down the film into four parts, as if it was a mini-series. Here you go:

Episode 1: I Heard You Paint Houses
From start to 49:00.
Cut when Jimmy Hoffa ends the call.

Episode 2: Hoffa
From 49:00 to 1:40:00
Cut when Jimmy the Blond is introduced.

Episode 3: What Kind of Fish?
From 1:40:00 to 2:47:30
Cut when Frank exits the house.

Episode 4: It Is What It Is
From 2:47:30 to the end

You are welcome.

Disney released this week the trailer from the live-action film Mulan, based on the eponymous film from 1998.

Watch it below:


When the Emperor of China issues a decree that one man per family must serve in the Imperial Army to defend the country from Northern invaders, Hua Mulan, the eldest daughter of an honored warrior, steps in to take the place of her ailing father.
