These ARE the Voices You’re Looking For

We all hear voices from time to time (so I’m told…). However, there’s a real talent for impersonating voices. Enter Last Jedi actor and Star Wars legend Mark Hamill in a recent sit-down interview with famed movie critic Peter Travers.

For the record, the merchandise from Star WarsJurassic Park and countless movies and television shows are what enabled escapism normally confined to a movie theater and family TV rooms (pre-YouTube and Internet) to reach new levels of imaginative curiosity. It’s an impactful part of being a kid, going to the movies and dreaming big. So, Sir Alec Guinness, wise Obi-Wan Kenobi, you were gravely mistaken.

If only Mr. Guinness (bet that got him a few free beers over the years) could have heard the voices of millions of kids seeing his films and playing with a myriad of merchandise, all while beginning a lifetime passion for some of the most treasured films in cinematic history.

Obi-Lost that Debate Kenobi more like it, hmmm (just one of those voices…).

Will Chaos Theory’s Kingdom Find a Way to Survive?

Ladies and gentlemen, the first full trailer for the highly-anticipated Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is here.

In a word: Chaos. In more words, which Jurassic Park character famously specialized in chaos theory? The writers built a subtle, yet clever narrative bridge that necessarily welcomes Dr. Ian Malcolm back after 20 years. Well, he actually made a couple “appearances” in 2015’s Jurassic World

Looks like visceral director J.A. Bayona (The Impossible) has attempted to add a big, suspenseful chapter to the Jurassic Park cinematic series with Fallen Kingdom, the second film in the Jurassic World trilogy. June 22, 2018, cannot come soon enough, just as long as there are engaging Michael Crichton-esque dialogue and next-level, imaginative plot twists in equal measure. Plus, there must be several genuine edge-of-your-seat animatronic thrills in gritty, acutely enclosing situations like in the 1993 masterpiece.

Time will tell concerning director J.A. Bayona’s signature filmmaking style amidst prehistoric chaos.

Disney’s Latest 3-Episode Renewal

Yes, yes and yes!

FYI- There’s a very specific and awesome reason why the word “yes” is written three times.

The good news is that The Last Jedi looks visually stunning with a bold, daring story. The better news is that we are only a little more than a month away from the highly-anticipated theatrical release of The Last Jedi, written and directed by the aforementioned Rian Johnson.

A quick refresher on Rian Johnson’s work on Star Wars: Episode VIII.

Looks like beloved Spielberg producer and Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy red read between the lines with Rian Johnson and The Last Jedi. Now even more than before, the fate of Episode VIII needs to be great.

And hopefully with less Dr. Seuss-style rhyming.

Happy Monday

The Last Jedi trailer is here…

I think a few people will see Star Wars: The Last Jedi in movie theaters this Christmas. The film’s director and screenwriter Rian Johnson continues to show that he’s the real deal within the beloved fictional cinematic world of Star Wars.

Is it Christmas yet?

Have a Better Week Than Last Week.
