Revenge of the Sith, like it’s previous films, has it’s problems. The thing that this one got right that Attack of the Clones got wrong was that this one entertained me. I can admit the beginning was a bit boring and had some pacing issues, but once it got into the plot of the film it started to pick up for me and became more enjoyable. I had always heard that out of the prequels, Revenge of the Sith was the best one and I can agree with that statement.
Now, let’s take a closer look at the good and bad of this film.

Movie Review – Star Wars, Episode II: Attack of the Clones

Our marathon continues with the second episode, Attack of the Clones.

Attack of the Clones, has a lot of problems and one the biggest ones is the writing. I didn’t find myself enjoying this one as much as I did enjoy The Phantom Menace. See while both movies have a lot of problems, The Phantom Menace was able to keep me entertained at least. Attack of the Clones just left me so frustrated with all the potential it had to be great, but the writing and then the acting of this bad writing just makes the film not as enjoyable as it should be.
Now, beneath the cut is my attempt at trying to give you all a cohesive explanation of my feelings on this film, but I think it comes across as incoherent rambling. I hope you all are able to follow what I was trying to say.

Movie Review – Star Wars, Episode I: The Phantom Menace

First of all if you don’t know what this is, then please read this post first.

So, we start our Star Wars marathon with the first episode, The Phantom Menace.

The Phantom Menance, while doing a decent job of setting up what the story of the prequels is gonna be about, it does feel like it relies on you having seen the original trilogy before watching this one. I felt that hurt the film a bit because what if you decided to watch the films in chronological order like I did with this rewatch. You’d be confused about this world and everything happening. Let me further explain with my pros and cons list.

Star Wars Reviews Coming Soon….

NovemberFavorites.png

So, to get myself even more hyped for the newest Star Wars film, I decided to have myself a marathon of Episodes 1-7, plus Rogue One. Then while I was watching them I decided that I’d review all eight films since I haven’t given my honest opinion of them. How my reviews are going to work is I’ll give my overall impression, give my pros and cons of each movie, and wrap it up with my star rating.

Now, before I start posting these reviews, I want to give a disclaimer that I didn’t grow up with these films. I watched Star Wars for the first time last year and since then have become a fan, but that doesn’t mean I’m not gonna hold back on the things that I do and don’t like about these films. So, if you don’t agree with my opinion, that’s fine, but please don’t attack me for not adoring these films like I know so many people do. I don’t have the same nostalgia that most people have when it comes to these films.

Now with that out of the way, I will start posting these reviews tomorrow and will review all eight films leading up to The Last Jedi’s release. Then I’ll go see that and review that as well. I hope you guys will enjoy these reviews and please let me know your thoughts of each one, respectfully though.

Dancing With The Stars Recap: “And the Winner is……”

Season 25, Episode 12 “The Finals, Part 2”

Tonight is the night. The night we crown our Season 25 Mirrorball Champion of Dancing with the Stars. Tonight the performers had to once again perform two routines. The first one was the celebrities having to perform their favorite routine from earlier in the season again and the second dance was a fusion dance of two different dance styles.
The opening number was so fun, and it was so great to see all the competitors again, and I loved that they danced to “Dancing in the Street” again like they did in the premiere. Kelsey Ballerini performed and it was quite enjoyable. I liked the performance Val and Jenna did with footage of the contestants playing on a screen behind Kelsey and the song was really pretty.

Now let’s look at these performances one by one.

Dancing With The Stars Recap: “And Then There Were Three”

Season 25, Episode 11 “The Finals, Part 1”

Tonight was the first night of the finals and Julianne Hough returned to guest judge this episode. The contestants had two dances again this week. The first was a Judges Redemption dance where they had to redo a dance from earlier in the season where their score was low and the second dance was a freestyle.
The opening number was quite quick, but very fast paced and enjoyable. During the show they also had a performance by Pitbull and Fifth Harmony that was okay, but if I’m being honest I didn’t really care that much about it. Julianne Hough did a dance routine inspired and choreographed by Marinda Davis. The routine was stunning and was just heartbreaking, yet beautiful.

Now let’s look at these performances one by one.

Dancing With The Stars Recap: “The Semi Finals Have Arrived”

Season 25, Episode 10 “The Semi-Finals”

Tonight the competitors had to do two dances the first was “Pro’s Choice” where the Pro’s would get to chose the song/concept for the dance and the second dance involved the competitors having to recreate an “Iconic Dance” from the shows history. So, there wasn’t a opening number this week, but there was a troupe performance in between the two dance routines. It was fun and a good preview of what to expect if you’re going to go see the troupe live during their upcoming tour. I felt tonight’s routines left me with a lot of mixed emotions on the episode as a whole. Some were amazing, some were good, and some were okay, but could have been stronger.
Now let’s look at these performances one by one.

Dancing With The Stars Recap: “Some Old Friends Return to Help Out Our Stars”

Before I talk about tonight’s show, I have to quickly talk about how shocked I was last week when both Vanessa and Nikki went home. I was really upset last week when Nikki went home since she was the whole reason I started watching the show and didn’t think it was her time to go, but I don’t control the show or the votes (although I don’t fully believe she didn’t have the votes). Still I’m proud of how far she came and I hope her & Artem are proud of all the work they put into the show. Now on to tonight’s show.

Dancing With The Stars Recap: “A Night at the Movies Goes Okay”

Season 25, Episode 7 “A Night at the Movies”

Tonight was “A Night at the Movies” and it was a pretty solid night of dancing. Shania Twain performed and was a guest judge, which I wasn’t a huge fan of. Her performance was lovely, but her actual judging was a little awkward. It just didn’t seem that she knew what she was talking about and her scoring was all over the place as well. Really liked the opening number and the story they told through that number was just really fun.
Now let’s look at these performances one by one.
