Apparently Gareth Edwards is Still With Us

Which I mention because after 2016’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story I thought that the mediocre experience Edwards seemingly had making the movie drove him from Hollywood all together. It wouldn’t be the first time. Stephen Norrington quit movie making after the terrible time he had directing 2003’s The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Apparently […]

Annihilation – Trailer

I like this trailer a lot though what’s most interesting (at least to me) is that it reminded me of Gareth Edwards’ Monsters except unlike in the case of that movie stuff seems to actually happen. Story-wise it looks like some sort of alien consciousness has arrived on Earth, with it’s presence seeming changing the […]

ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS Story – Review

“What’s surprising is not that ROGUE ON: A STAR WARS Story has earned almost $850 million worldwide, but how astoundingly mediocre the movie actually is.” The biggest problem with Gareth Edwards’ ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS Story is that it’s two movies. For the bulk of it’s time it’s a war movie, and a not […]

Rogue One Review Capsule

I’m in the process of editing my review of ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS Story so check back for the full version! Though I have to say that I really did not like this movie.  Say what you will about the prequels, at least they felt like Star Wars movies. Rogue One?  Maybe the last […]

My Two Cents – Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Let me cut to the chase.  I am not particularly enamored of Gareth Edwards as a director. The problems start with his filmography. First you have Monsters, a movie where the aforementioned monsters felt like an afterthought which shouldn’t be the case with a movie named Monsters. His followup, Legendary’s Godzilla suffered a similar fate, with  Godzilla […]

‘Godzilla’ Trailer 2

I like this trailer, it’s very atmospheric.  As I have said before though, I am worried because Gareth Edwards’ last film, “Monsters” was atmospheric too, but offered little else. You even get a little bit of Godzilla-love at the end.  I hope that it brings the goods, after all we have already had a Godzilla reboot, […]

‘Godzilla’ Trailer

The trailer of Gareth Edwards’ “Godzilla” trailer has arrived, and I have to say that I like it (despite that opening ‘Transformers’ horn sound).  Heavy on atmospherics, relatively little of the big lizard itself, it’s looking pretty good. Overall, it looks interesting enough that “Monsters” will only be an distant memory.
