Just got home from seeing The Rise of Skywalker.
The 9th and final chapter of the Star Wars saga.
Well there are things I don't like there is a lot of things I did. This was the scale I wanted Return of the Jedi to be, this sense of finality that I still felt robbed from in RotJ by those teddy-bears. No this movie did it so much better. I really liked that RoS did it own thing while not forgetting it had to wrap up 8 movies. I like to get more into this movie but that means spoilers.

The Sequel trilogy:
I want to look back just on these 3 movie's. It's definitely my least favorite trilogy, I don't think episode 9 did enough that watching episode 7 and 8 in with all the information is as much fun as watching episodes 1 and 2 after watching episode 3. The OT had just a great story but like the sequel trilogy wasn't as mapped out like the prequels.
All the trilogies had there ups and downs but this is how I place them:
1. Prequels: (Episodes 1 and 2 lacked in the main story but Episode 3 made it a nice package.)
2. Original: (All three Episodes had a great main story but 4 has some problems after watching Episode 6 that prove this wasn't mapped out as much as people like to believe.)
3. Sequels (I enjoyed all three again, Episode 8 had a great main story but a bad side story. Abrams return was good to fill the gaps created by Episode 7 but no this felt as much mapped out as the OT)
It falls in the last place but I love each trilogy and I can't wait to watch all 9 movies in a row.

One thing I didn't like for RoS includes a small spoiler but was present in the teaser so SPOILERS if you didn't watch that:
The Emperors return was done the only way I wouldn't like it. That said he was used right.

We just saw Knives Out on Monday. Really enjoyed it, especially with the twist at the end.

Kirk Douglas just passed away. At age 103! And he was in one of my all-time fave Disney films....

I saw Sonic today. I have to say not bad, a solid 7/10 if I had to rate it. Most of the movie was just generic toys, Videogame, anime movie adaptation aka let's bring in the military and a human side-kick, but the movie had an opportunity for one of the oldest cliché and didn't even attempt it which made me very happy because I always hated it. I also had to watch the Dutch version that also soured the experience what means I probably would have enjoyed the movie more if I had watched the English version.

Just hit with a movie casting revelation!

Found out before the holidays, that FOLLIES was finally going to be made as a film.
This is following a HUGE London Revival that was repeated with a totally new cast a year later!

So, I had an epiphany. Could the cast of CHICAGO(2002) be a repeat for these 4 parts in FOLLIES?....

Sally - Renee Zellweger
Phyillis - Catherine Zeta-Jones
Buddy - John C. Reilly
Benjamin - Richard Gere ....

Hmmm? Possible? ;)

EDIT TO ADD: Then I came up with Meryl Streep for Carlotta ("I'm Still Here"),
and Renee Fleming for the Opera Singer, Heidi Schiller.

I too was pleasantly surprised by Sonic. It wasn't amazing, but that movie very well could have been just a cash grab, but it was solid. In retrospect, that makes sense considering the studio was willing to delay that film a few months to correct Sonic's design after the initial trailer.

Although you missed one thing in your recap, Olive Garden. :lol:
Top 3 Wood- Lightning Rod, Voyage, Coaster (PNE Playland)
Top 3 Steel- Steel Vengeance, Untamed, Expedition GeForce
