    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    By s. Wednesday, December 20, 2017 , , , , , , , , 23 Comments


    Rian Johnson has really accomplished something incredible in the newest Star Wars movie, The Last Jedi. Something different. Something unique. In that he made Star Wars movie that is so boring even if you paid me money I'd not sit through it again. I'm not sure what is more baffling - that a film from the director of Looper is so poorly made or that a Star Wars film is such a poor spectacle.

    Last week we looked at 10 trailers which used songs to great effect. Since I don't wanna trash The Snowman joylessly in a review of it and would rather just whine about it in RF BUT I also want to have at least some content around here, let's look at 10 more:

  • I'm continuing my insane quest. On Friday (and on Wednesday) I rewatched The Wolf of Wall Street (livetweet - 1,2,3) which is one of my favorite films of all time. The script of that thing is amazing. The film is so funny, obviously the ludes scene had me on the floor laughing but the confrontation in the parking lot with Jon and Jonah is just insane and my pick for the second funniest scene in the film. Oh my God, the emperor of Fucksville came down from Fucksvlle to give me a pass!

    10 great uses of songs in movie/TV series trailers

    This is just off the top of my head and by no meants "Greatest of all Time" kind of list because there are just way too many examples like that to choose from. One of the things I love about trailers is when they use the music to great effect (such as the recent Rampage trailer with awesome use of Smashing Pumpkins' song). We're not talking about the epic trailer music or a well known theme from another film used to great effect (Requiem for a Dream music used in The Two Towers trailer), but just a skillful use of song. Here are some of the examples that came to mind:
