Fan Film Hoshino is What Star Wars Could Be…

It’s an interesting time we live in. Affordable technology and the internet allows creative people that might have fallen through the cracks 40 years ago to express themselves and connect to kindred spirits across the world.

I’ve been mulling it over in my brain for quite some time, and I hate to say it, but the Force Awakens sucked! I think this review by J. Olson hits the nail on the head.

For the first ten minutes of J.J. Abrams’ “The Force Awakens” – ten beautiful, perfect minutes – it seems as though “Star Wars” may finally be back.

First, the opening crawl.

Inveterate Jedi Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) has gone missing. His sister Leia (Carrie Fisher), now a General, leads the Resistance against the First Order, an offshoot of the long-defunct Empire. Continue reading Uhhh Guys, I think the Force Awakened Sucked…
