Star Wars: Episode VII: Revenge Of The Septuagenarian

McGregor was good in the prequels and did the best he could with what was given him. Here you can see the struggle in action:

Not a lot of room for a story I guess when your movie is mostly just explosions and letting the kid from the Facebook movie re-imagine Lex Luthor into basically evil Mark Zuckerberg.

 
"Lois you can't take a helicopter to go after a story! Remember how we had to send you coach all over the country to find out about the bullet that got conveniently lodged in your day planner?"

"But Mr Fishburne, it's not for a story!"

"Oh well because it's for a personal matter totally unrelated to work, please by all means have our chopper guy fly into the middle of a fight between two super heroes!"

Not sure if that was my favorite part, or how batman changed his suit basically mid- fight. Or when Superman almost dies just going into the water with the spear, the zod monster gives him enough time to have a teary goodbye, and then he's able to pick it up and fly off with the thing. That was good too.

Like I said, it has its issues for sure.

Like are there no razors at Wayne Manor? No CVS nearby? Not only is Affleck always sporting scruff, but so is Alfred....no way a proper British butler isn't shaving.
Affleck is not too bad, certainly not on Bale's level, but miles ahead of Clooney. Probably 3rd of the recent 5, Bale, Keaton, Affleck, Kilmer, Clooney.

And I still think Cavill may be the best big screen Superman/Clark Kent we've had....certainly looks the part. A lot better than Routh, hard to compare fairly to Reeve since so much time has passed, but at least as good if not better.

I'm hopeful that things take a step up for Justice League part 1, we shall see.

Cavill is like a wax figure of Superman (sort of) come to life.

Looks like the combination of mixed reviews and Easter kept folks away from Batman Vs. Superman, only made 170 Mil domestic.

Star Wars: Episode VII: Revenge Of The Septuagenarian

Critics don't make a difference until the second week, if at all. Anyone that's interested in seeing it opening weekend will do so regardless of public reaction.

I'm guessing the second week dropoff will be brutal, but I'm wrong all the time.

I can forgive TFA for the blatant nostalgia and lack of originality simply because its the most fun I have had watching a Star Wars movie in decades. For me the next movie is the big test, they have me hooked again, I really hope that they try to go in a new direction otherwise I'm out.

I personally don't want any more Star Wars or comic book hero movies.

Comparing Star Wars: The Force Awakens with A New Hope shows some familiar beats · Great Job, Internet! · The A.V. Club

I am pretty impressed how much imitation/homage to the Ep. 4 JJ clammed into one movie.
