Movie Review - Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Star Wars The Last Jedi Director: Rian Johnson Starring: Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill My Rating:  Simply put, I think The Last Jedi is marvelous! I am really confused as to why audiences are not responding well, but that is typical for the middle movie of a trilogy. I admit that this movie is quite different from any other Star Wars movie. It’s dark, with some light humor (often delivered by Oscar Isaac). It has some pretty intense moments; apparently I was, unknowingly, squeezing my wife’s hand throughout most of the film. It was so awesome to see Mark Hamill reprise his [… Click to Continue …]

Biggs Zone - 2016 Year in Review

Another year is over and we now look forward to a fresh start in 2017. As we prepare our resolutions or intentions or what have you, let’s reflect back with a 2016 year in review. By the way, there will be NO politics or political hot topics/agendas in this post. I hate to start on a somber note but I would rather get the depressing stuff out of the way first. We lost some amazing celebrity icons this year. One of our favorite TV dads, Alan Thicke (“Growing Pains”), and our favorite TV mom, Florence Henderson (“The Brady Bunch”) both passed away this year. We lost our [… Click to Continue …]

Movie Review - Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Directed by: Gareth Edwards Starring: Felicity Jones, Alan Tudyk My Rating:  A second Star Wars movie in a year is a dream come true for Star Wars nerds the world over. I saw this movie in a Dolby Cinema off of Times Square in New York City. It’s one of 10 Dolby Cinema theaters in the country and this should be the only way to watch a Star Wars movie. Rogue One takes a different approach to telling a story in the Star Wars universe. It’s a movie that isn’t part of the main story but it does make a [… Click to Continue …]

Movie Review: Suicide Squad

Suicide Squad Directed by: David Ayer Starring: Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie My Rating:  It has been a while since my last movie review post. Batman vs Superman (BvS) may have been the last one I did so it’s serendipitous that Suicide Squad is next. I can’t believe there was no warning that you should see BvS before you see Suicide Squad. It picks up shortly after the events of BvS so you should watch that first, if you don’t want a spoiler. Suicide Squad is esoteric to comic geek canon. In other words, if you are not familiar with DC villains then you probably have no [… Click to Continue …]

Movie Review: Batman vs Superman

I did see Batman vs Superman. I have been talking smack about this movie since it came out and the reviews were so awful. I’ve mostly been doing it to those of my friends that give me a hard time about Star Wars (despite its $932 million in domestic box office sales). I’ve also been doing it because I knew I was going to see the movie. Typically I won’t be too quick to publicly judge a popular movie like this unless I intended to see it (after all, I did watch Titanic before I finally decided I didn’t like it). In the spirit of full disclosure, [… Click to Continue …]

Star Wars: My Inner Child Awakens

I have been working on this post (whether its written or in my head) since I saw The Force Awakens December 24th. The thing I struggled with the most was giving this post a proper title that not only reflected how I felt about the film but also what this post is going to be about (other than simply my nerdy review). I settled on “My Inner Child Awakens” because not only is it a play on the film’s title but it’s how I felt watching the movie. If you have talked to me in person or followed any of my Twitter or Facebook posts then you [… Click to Continue …]
