Walt Disney has announced a deal to make three new Star Wars movies.
The company said it had struck a deal with Rian Johnson, director of the upcoming "Star Wars: The Last Jedi", to create a new trilogy of the science fiction blockbuster.

In a galaxy where you live...

Disney screws you with another dreadful trilogy so badly written with so many flaws and plot holes you will not believe it. Staring a bunch of actors no one knows about and who can not act for toffee. Who cares the CGI will blow you away into next week where you will say wow I want more.

The thing is, the expanded universe had many great stories to be put on film or go to the KOTOR years and do something new.
Now it may be just "Hei, it's Star Wars, it would do great or be good and give a lot of money"!

Link to the full 1989 Finnish war movie Talvisota (The Winter War). Worth a watch, if you haven't seen it before. (Eng subs)

LA Times review from 1989:
http://articles.latimes.com/1989-12-...ssian-invaders

Quote:
It is a grueling, superb and altogether rewarding achievement, with glorious cinematography and exceptional sound. It has a tremendous, agonizing immediacy yet preserves a detached perspective throughout. It has a whopping 196-minute running time, yet is so absorbing that it does not seem overly long.

This was aired on UK tv last night and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Star Wars Episode VIII - The Last Jedi

Just come up of seeing it, I liked. It didn't surprised me as Rogue One, but it is far better then the previous film (why they are bringing abrams back for the next episode, arrrghhhhhhh)!
It is not a rip-off of The Empire Strikes Back, but some scenes are nostalgic of it. On the other hand, it has great new scenes and things that one not expecting. A few questions are answered in a good way, hope that are staying like that.
A few things still bug me, but they are bit normal in SW universe and of course a few plot holes, again normal ones in SW.
Overall, a good film and a godd Star Wars film.

Reviews of Star Wars are coming in.

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-42378638

Disney so far ha snot ruined the frnahcise in excessive digging for coins, while not breaking new ground like the first movies did back in the 80s, I thought the past two movies of the past 2 years were not bad. I mean of cours eit remains to be and never will be anything else but Star Wars - but while not being more, also not being less.

Definitely going to give it a miss watching the last jedi in the cinema after see force awakens and the reviews don't seem to be any better this time around. It's a shame really, there's a lot of good lore to explore in star wars.
