Star Wars Episode III Revenge of the Sith Review: 7 out of 10

Star Wars Episode III  Revenge of the Sith Review: 7 out of 10

John Williams’ brassy fanfare for Star Wars is a bold, recognizable piece of movie music magic full of pomp and circumstance. And as its opening notes sound for George Lucas’ final piece of his massive, mythic undertaking, it heralds a graduation of sorts. Star Wars Episode III Revenge of the Sith has had no shortage of pomp. Myriad magazine covers and the sheer tonnage of tie-in memorabilia have seen to that. But it is the…

STAR WARS EPISODE III REVENGE OF THE SITH IS A PERFECT FIT FOR THE STAR WARS TRILOGY

STAR WARS EPISODE III REVENGE OF THE SITH IS A PERFECT FIT FOR THE STAR WARS TRILOGY

STAR WARS EPISODE III REVENGE OF THE SITH is the movie he ought to have made right from the beginning. This is the entry he kept on promising he’d deliver, the film we’ve all kept longing for. The other two Star Wars prequels are utterly irrelevant; this film could have existed without them. It’s a perfect fit with the astounding original films and unlike the predecessors, it only tops them. I still remember the first time…

Arrival Review: The Earth is under a great threat

Planet Earth is thrown into chaos when 12 mysterious, extra-terrestrial craft appear around the world. Their inhabitants want to talk, so it’s up to linguistics professor Dr. Louise Banks (Amy Adams) to try to decipher their mind-bending language before global panic turns into inter-species war.

Arrival is deeply human, superbly realized sci-fi

Arrival is deeply human, superbly realized sci-fi

You can stop staring at the skies. They’ve arrived. Arrival movie that begin with confounding aliens on the loose have been around for awhile (at least since 1951’s “Man From Planet X” and “The Day the Earth Stood Still”) and they invariably share a family resemblance even if the space visitors themselves never look the same way twice. Where do these beings come from, baffled scientists and frightened government officials inevitably want to know. Are…

Arrival – Amy Adams has a sublime word with visitors from outer space

Arrival – Amy Adams has a sublime word with visitors from outer space

Arthur C Clarke famously said there are just two possibilities: that we are alone in the universe, or we aren’t, and both are equally terrifying. The first terror is more challenging to put on Arrival movie, but director Denis Villeneuve brings the second to life with this wacky and audacious contact sci-fi – and makes it something other than terror. Screenwriter Eric Heisserer has adapted the novella Story of Your Life by the SF author Ted Chiang;…

All the reasons given why Arrival is the best movie of 2016

All the reasons given why Arrival is the best movie of 2016

Here are 11 reasons why Arrival, the astonishing sci-fi drama starring Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner and directed by Denis Villeneuve, is currently the best film of 2016: 1) It’s as emotionally intriguing, immediately from the beginning, as any film since Pixar’s Up (2009). Pixar might never be topped for its ability to move an audience to tears within the first five minutes of a film, but this opening sequence comes close. 2) The visual design of the alien…

Arrival – What Are The Aliens Up To?

Arrival – What Are The Aliens Up To?

In what’s probably the first science-fiction film — Georges Méliès’s 1902 marvel “A Trip to the Moon” — a group of astronomers lands in the Man in the Moon’s eye. They’re soon taken prisoner by moon men, but a quick-witted astronomer clobbers the king and they escape, with one earthling vanquishing moon men with an umbrella. Humans have been zapping extraterrestrials ever since. It’s so easy to battle against the unknown, at least as films…

Arrival 2017 movie- Intriguing Alien Alphabet

Arrival 2017 movie- Intriguing Alien Alphabet

Arrival  2017 movie is, to be sure, an alien flick. But under that sci-fi cover is a movie about communication, and the effort needed to understand someone (or, in this case, something) who looks and speaks differently than you do. In Arrival  movie, this patient work applies to linguist Louise Banks (Amy Adams), who is called to Montana, by the US Military, to contact with an alien race known as the “heptapods.” (Heads up: Minor spoilers lie ahead.) The aliens write with “logograms,”…

Arrival: Heartfelt Alien-contact Movie Communicates Spectacular Ideas

Arrival: Heartfelt Alien-contact Movie Communicates Spectacular Ideas

Arrival movie 2017 is both heartfelt and very entertaining, and it brings back hope for sci-fi movie, which has been lost since the overwrought disappointments of Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar and Jeff Nichols’s Midnight Special. Denis Villeneuve’s sci-fi contact drama is dreamy, freaky and audacious. Arrival movie skirts the edge of absurdity as anything like it must but still manages to keep the story clear. The movie includes a big flourish in the manner of early movies by M. Night…

Star Wars Episode III Revenge of the Sith – Good but Flawed

“Henceforth you will be known as Darth Vader!” These dire words, addressed to a tormented Anakin Skywalker as he crosses the threshold to the much-mentioned Dark Side, mark the definitive moment of his Luciferian journey, which will come to an end with the man in a black, neo-Wehrmacht helmet-mask, with incipient emphysema and a walk that makes him look as if he has had concrete hip replacements. It supposedly forms the mythic heart of the…

Thor Ragnarok Is secretly bringing a franchise back to life

Eric Pearson’s pressure-filled job laid the foundation for a movie that’s fresh in a way that’s all but unheard of for a third installment. When Eric Pearson earned a spot as screenwriter for Thor Ragnarok, there were two orders given to him: Chris Hemsworth‘s God of Thunder should be the film’s breeziest character, and the work shouldn’t be restrained by the series’ past. Thor Ragnarok film succeeded on both counts. Ragnarok has become Marvel Studios’ best-reviewed film yet and is…
