Watching some random tosh and mixed bag.

Grease: what's not to like about a sing along classic

Jonah Hex: a different comic book adapted character film with a sweaty and buxomed chested Megan Fox

Little shop of Horrors: again a childhood sing along film

Star Wars the force awakens what a complete pile of shite It must be said please keep geriatric action hero's out of these sci fi action films poor old Harrison Ford look as if he had just been shat out of Jubba the Hutt's arsehole marks out of 10 -4 and that's being kind.

One of those films that you can on while you're doing something else.
Mildly entertaining, mildly funny and a mild 5/10.

'Star Wars Episode VII The Force Awakens' ... a good 8/10.

I'm not "into" Star Wars. I don't think I've even seen the other three (the later, first three). I saw 'Star Wars' back in the day and 'Empire Strikes Back', possibly seen ' Return of the Jedi' but can't remember.

Anyway, 'The Force Awakens' is a fun romp. As a straight-up film it works. It's got all the elements of a decent Sci-Fi film coupled with some drama. As part of an epic, it's a clever handover - here are some new folks, here are the old folks, look how washed up they are and look how the new folks are sliding into position. Yeah, it worked.

I likened it to Ballet, how the older dancers hold non-dancing roles, like the King, the Queen, that sort of thing. They're on stage, but it's the younger dancers that hold the key roles. The old folks were all there in the film, just not holding the main roles. Long cameos, if you like.

So, all handed over ... I guess there's be a good few more to come.

Enjoyed. And actually, it perked my interest to watch the others.

I think it's pretty good too. I wasn't that keen on 1,2,3 the computer generated stuff was over the top for me. While the new offering has plenty, it's just not as over the top.

It did all slide in very well as you have said.

Actually, one disappointment with 'The Force Awakens' was the hyperspeed effect in the Millennium Falcon.

In 'TRON', the light cycles had a breathtaking effect for its day; the hyperspeed effect also. In 'TRON Legacy', they did that one better - the lightcycles were stunning and then they went yet one better with the light gliders.

That hyperspeed effect is a signature - it could have been modernised.
