Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
4 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Name an instance where a famous engineer's daughter is also instantly available to ALL in in the Universe?

That is the hook, the basis for this movie. Dad and mom are taken away from daughter, they never once bother arranging for her to join them, instead they leave her in prison which causes this daughter to LOVE her father even more (yeah right.)

And then, upon being spring from her cell she is instantly one of the key leaders of the resistance. And then it's pretty much non-stop lasers and explosions.

Whatever happened to Act II?

Passengers (2016)
4 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

It's just sad, looking at all these negative reviews.
We have a generation or two now that have grown up playing thousands upon thousands of hours of video games. As a result, they have no idea what a story is. For them Act II and backstory is wasted time. All they know of story is:
1. These are your characters.
3. The end.
This gaming generation has no empathy for a mechanic who's life was thrown away by a greedy corporation, so that he might repair their precious ship which was struck by an asteroid and was in steady decline.
They also can't see that the Aurora character, and ALL of the other passengers, would have all soon died due to the fact that the ship was failing.
For the gaming generation, instead of seeing the James Preston character as the hero that he was, they saw him as a murderer who stalked an innocent woman, Aurora. They failed to see that, after over a year of crushing solitude in deep space, had come to the end of himself. And at that point he did something unthinkable ... he fell in love. With another passenger.
Preston then took the time to read everything Aurora had written and listened to all she had said online, and then genuinely fell in love with her and who she was and what she stood for and even the sound of her voice.
Are these people ignorant of love?
And then, only after he had fallen in love did he decide to do what he knew was wrong, but he had no other choice. They said it in the movie "A drowning man will often drag another down with him." It's human nature, not just one man's horrible dead.
I won't spoil the ending, like all the critics, but suffice it to say my wife and loved this movie. And we loved that it wasn't non-stop BANG BANG, CHOP CHOP, CRASH CRASH. It was a story, a good one.

The Karate Kid

Holy god this movie sucks. And how bad do you hate production companies for just using the original movie title?
