The Secret of the Sword

"I've got that flying horsey in my sight" He-Man & the Masters of the Universe was a massive hit toy line and a massive hit animated TV series. He-Man ruled the airwaves in the 80s and it would only make sense to not only make a feature length theatrical film but also a new spin-off series with a new character! The film follows Price Adam/He-Man as he embarks on the search for his twin sister. Turns out that a new villain by the name of Hordak had kidnapped He-Man's twin sister shortly after birth and taken here to another dimension on a planet called Etherea. No one knows what happened to the little girl, Adora. But, with this information and with a magical sword, He-Man is on his way to find Princess Adora.  What much can be said of "The Secret of the Sword", it's not necessarily a film for cinemas as there is nothing special enough about the movie for it to warrant a theatrical release, other than the length of the film.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Teaser



LucasFilm has given us the first teaser for The Last Jedi and I have to say that I am impressed. Director Rian Johnson has big shoes to fill and has never had a film that was this big in scope. The man is a talented director and, from the looks of it, he is going to make a fine addition to the stable of directors that LucasFilm has been obtaining over the years.

This teaser stands out more than the one for The Force Awakens did this same time two years ago, but there isn't the sense of awe that The Force Awakens had. Everyone I know is pumped for this film, as am I, but I hope that coming trailers quench my thirst for Star Wars. Rogue One, while a good film but not a great one, left a bad taste in my mouth. After The Force Awakens, which gave hope for the series, Rogue One showed that the people running LucasFilm don't have as tight of a control that they led us to believe. Marvel has a tighter ship than LucasFilm does.

Still, I am excited to see The Last Jedi. I think that the film looks good and there is enough talent behind this film that it will be hard to be bad.

The Last Jedi stars  Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Mark Hamill, and the late Carrie Fisher. As I said before, the film is being directed by Rian Johnson, who also wrote the screenplay.

The film hits theaters on Decemeber 15th.
