So, it’s been a while since I posted on my movie/TV blog at http://PeteSaves.US and it’s been somewhat intentional. There has been such an explosion of good quality TV and movies over the last couple years, I just haven’t felt compelled to write about much. Combine that with my busy schedule working on my own creative projects (http://caffeinated.space, petesfiction.blogspot.com and more), it’s been hard to carve out time to help Hollywood in the ways it still really does need my help. I mean, did you see the last STAR WARS movie? Holy Jar-Jar Binks, Batman! That movie was divisive as a STAR WARS movie, but it also had some issues just as a movie movie.
I know you probably don’t need the above exposition but I wanted to have some sort of explanation available for anyone who notices the massive gap in post dates. I’m a little obsessive like that, myself, which is a good trait for any writer.
Watch for new posts about 2016’s WONDER WOMAN, 2017’s BLADE RUNNER 2049, and, duh, STAR WARS: EPISODE 8: THE LAST JEDI, coming soon!
In fact, probably this Thursday!
Here is a quick preview of my take on STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI:
So, if you cut out the bulk of Poe Dameron’s scenes and the bulk of Finn and Rose’s scenes, would the movie still seem cohesive? I say yes. I also say, that makes those scenes not necessary.
See you on Thursday!
