The Sequel Trilogy We Were Promised for The Force Awakens

I am not a fan of Disney Star Wars and all the movies they’ve made. This is not the direction I wanted for the franchise. I wanted the George Lucas vision made with another director controlling his crazy ideas.

But even then, even with Disney, even when the sale went through and we started getting information. You know, even what I wanted? I wanted the Star Wars we were promised in the trailers in The Force Awakens, the Episode VII. Warning, fanboy level dialog kept for historical accuracy.

We watch the Teaser trailer:

Holy crap, who is this guy in the storm trooper costume and why is he in Tatooine, he looks like he went through something.

There’s been an awakening? Who is that voice? What does he refer to?

Holy crap, who are these new storm troopers?

What is that girl escaping from?

X-Wings? going on some type of mission?

Holy crap a new Sith!

The Falcon is back!

I can’t wait to see a new Star Wars film.

Granted this first teaser wasn’t as great as it was pandering a little too much to the OT but whatever, never ran through my mind since they’re clearly going to tell new stories.

We watch the first trailer:

“Who are you?” “I’m no one” OMG who is she, this is exciting she must be someone important and she’s in Tatooine. She mirrors Luke’s origin but at the same time you know there’s something special about her. Can’t wait to find out more about her.

Holy crap, that’s a lot of remnants of the Empire, what are they planning, how are they back?

“I was raised to do one thing, now I’ve got nothing to fight for”
Wow, clearly something happened to this guy that had him make such a sharp turn in his life, this music is beautiful, it sets him up as this hero, I can’t wait to see his journey in the movie and see him become a hero.

“Nothing will stand in our way. I will finish, what you started.”
That’s a beautiful shot, who is this guy, I can’t wait to find out more about him, they wouldn’t be stupid enough to have Darth Vader 2.0 so I’m excited, the mask and all should tell us they’ll do something totally different with him. What’s his obsession with Darth Vader, what connections did he have?

The Love theme with Han Solo? Crap, he’s going to teach these new heroes to go on their adventure. Awesome.

There’s more sith along side this new Kylo Ren guy? Holy crap, this is epic.

The Empire vs Rebels, I wonder what that really is I wonder how they’re still fighting 30 years into the future, can’t wait to find out how things got the way they are now, clearly it has to be something epic.

Wow, that new character Finn has a lightsaber, he’s going to become a Jedi. I don’t understand why people are complaining, it’s clear that Rey girl will also become a Jedi. Cool, we have two Jedi in training and a bunch of Sith to go against.

We watch the third trailer:

This will be the last trailer/commercial I watch, I don’t want to spoil too much.

Holy crap, something big happened in Tatooine, a big battle. Wow Luke is talking, it’s his dialog from Return of the Jedi but it’s newly recorded dialog! He is talking about Darth Vader!, himself, his siter and not only Leia this time but someone else, who is getting this lightsaber? I bet it’s Rey, it has to be her. His family has this power, she or whoever Luke is referring to in the trailer is a Skywalker continuing the legacy of the first two trilogies, the new generation, even if not Rey it has to be a Skywalker.

All these action scenes look great and wow who is this Captain Phasma character,s he looks like a total Boss, clearly they haven’t shown a lot about her because she’s going to be something special.

That last Han Solo part was a bit gratuitous, I hope they don’t use him in a bad way. That BB-8 robot looks like a cheap R2D2 replacement for the sake of “new” lame.

We watch Episode VII the Force Awakens:

Well, I just finished watching this but I don’t know how to feel, it was cool but I don’t know why I’m not excited. Wait, it wasn’t that good, it was just Episode IV ANH re-done. We didn’t get any of the answers promised in the trailers, none of them. We don’t know who Rey is or why things are back to the status quo of the OT. Phasma was just thrown down a garbage shoot? We have a new Emperor? What? Maybe Episode VIII will finally answer these issues?

*Complains Online* Well I’m swamped with messages that I’m wrong because everyone except me loved the movie..

The Problem With.. Star Wars The Last Jedi

I have not been a fan of Disney’s Star Wars with their annual releases and their movies but I’m a big Star Wars fan and hoped the sequel trilogy would be great, The Force Awakens didn’t set my world on fire but The Last Jedi doubles down on what made The Force Awakens bad, so here is the problem with The Last Jedi, no spoilers.

I’m sad to say that I didn’t like the film, it makes me wonder if the reviews shill for the brand or they are just that hypnotized the marketing? Best movie since Empire Strikes Back? This could be the weakest movie of them all.

Star Wars Bounty Hunter – Secret Movie

Star Wars Bounty Hunter came out on the Playstation 2 and Gamecube to coincide with Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, the game was pretty fun and felt like a new version of Shadows of the Empire. You really took the role of a Bounty Hunter and it felt awesome. It sucks that we never got a sequel. But I’m not here to talk about the game but the story, as this game took place before Episode II and pretty much tells a somewhat important part of the mystery we see in the movie. Only in the game would you not only know how Jango Fett was hired but make sense of some of Count Dooku’s dialog.

It really is a shame that this story was done only in game form since as of now the CG that was “realistic” at the time is now really ugly. Nonetheless, watch the “Bounty Hunter” Star Wars movie here with all the cutscenes stitched together to make a somewhat logical story and solve some mysteries that Attack of the Clones left unresolved.

Star Wars Gangsta Rap

In the summer of 2000 Star Wars held its first fan film awards and the winner of it was the Star Wars Gangsta Rap. This was before youtube was a thing your battle station needed to have the equipment to play .swf files so you could enjoy this classic from Atom Films. I must’ve watched this hundreds of times, I almost feel bad for my parents. If you’ve never watched it then you owe it to yourself to watch it:

Trying to re-create the original buzz Atom released a “Special Edition” version of the original Star Wars Gangsta Rap in 2004. The audio is exactly the same but the Star Wars Gangsta Rap Special edition featured brand new flash animation and like the real special editions they just aren’t as good as the original. The Flash animation is no longer amateurish looking but completely professional, that actually works against it as that was part of the charm of the original. Then again it could’ve just been that I watched the original so many times anything different just looks odd, go ahead and compare them yourself:

Secret Movie Sequel.. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II

You may be in the mood for a new Star Wars story to watch while waiting for the annual Star Wars movie so why not check out the sequel to The Force Unleashed which you need to see before this “movie”. Like the original this sequel is made from the Playstation 3 and 360 game cutscenes and some gameplay to make the FMV make sense but this being a sequel to a story that seemed to have a definite end,c an it be worth watching?

Secret Movie.. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed

Secret movie is all about finding more content for you to indulge on when you’re hyped so what do you do when you’ve already exhausted your marathons of the Star Wars episodes? Why not find some new content to watch in this case The Force Unleashed which was a video game that tells the story of a Darth Vader’s secret apprentice in a story set between Episode III Revenge of the Sith and Episode IV A New Hope. What we have here is all the cutscenes put together with some gameplay to make it a “movie” and this was in the PS3 / Xbox 360 era which makes this CG “film” actually tell a decent story which had a sequel.
