And the Title of "Star Wars: Episode VII" is... 


The Force Awakens! Apparently, the Force has been sleeping through the last "Star Wars" movies!

And predictably, it didn't make everyone happy when it was revealed on the film's Twitter and Facebook accounts.

Some sample snarkiness:

New Star Wars title not bad, just feels a little forced.
I had my money on STAR WARS INTO DARKNESS.
And my favorite, Shhhhh. The Force is a very light sleeper.

But not everybody will be happy with the most over-hyped, over-talked contemporary movie! Honestly, while I"m not a fan of the title, I really couldn't give a flying f&*^

I'm tired of hearing about "Star Wars" sequel period!!!!! Just do the movie, make money, and then do more sequels to satisfy the new home of "Star Wars," Walt Disney Pictures!

And honestly? I'm beginning to hate J.J. Abrams!!! The last "Star Trek" movie wasn't that good, it made me long for the original, much better "The Wrath of Khan!" I'm slowly learning to despise him the more he talks about his new pet project!

So while everyone is watching "Star Wars, ahem, The Force Awakens" I'll be basking in the glory of the first three "Star Wars" movies. No, not the Sith Revenging or Clones Attacking, more like the Empire Striking Back by Way of the Jedi Exacting Revenge. That is, ultimately, my New Hope!

New "Into the Woods" Trailer Comes Out But Sorry, I'm Not Impressed! 


The new trailer for "Into the Woods" came out today but somehow, I wasn't thrilled! Look, I'm a die-hard showtunes queen LOL, I celebrated "Chicago," "Mamma Mia," "Les Miserables!" But I wasn't feeling it with the new trailer for "Into the Woods." Sure, Meryl Streep sang, and ooooh, she's a witch! The look of the movie is like a cross between "Maleficent" and "Jack the Slayer." So, I'm not buying this trailer, but my fingers are crossed that the movie will be much, much better! I hope! Let that be my Christmas wish!

Boo! Check Out My "Nightcrawler" Movie Review -- HAPPY HALLOWEEN! 


The movie might be called “Nightcrawler” but it’s not supernaturally spooky at all! But it does feature the dark side of the human heart! So is this film perfect to see this Halloween season? Find out in my movie review of “Nightcrawler.”



Official “Nightcrawler” synopsis:

NIGHTCRAWLER is a pulse-pounding thriller set in the nocturnal underbelly of contemporary Los Angeles. Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Lou Bloom, a driven young man desperate for work who discovers the high-speed world of L.A. crime journalism. Finding a group of freelance camera crews who film crashes, fires, murder and other mayhem, Lou muscles into the cut-throat, dangerous realm of nightcrawling -- where each police siren wail equals a possible windfall and victims are converted into dollars and cents. Aided by Rene Russo as Nina, a veteran of the blood-sport that is local TV news, Lou thrives. In the breakneck, ceaseless search for footage, he becomes the star of his own story. (c) Open Road

Written and directed by Dan Gilroy

Cast

• Jake Gyllenhaal as Louis Bloom
• Rene Russo as Nina
• Riz Ahmed as Rick
• Bill Paxton as Joe Loder
