Scott Wilkinson ... stitched together

Scott Wilkinson

Episode 1654

Scott saw Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and he was a bit disappointed. He thought it was "stitched together" as a story, and he didn't think the Dolby Cinema was as good as he's seen before. He also thought it was too damn loud. The deep black of space was simply missing. So it was disappointing. But he does say that JJ Abrams and his team did a great job incorporating footage of Carrie Fisher that wasn't used in the last two films so that it worked rather seamless. Scott also said that the music was virtually nonstop throughout the entire film.

Scott went and saw First Man, and Leo says it was a terrible film that does an injustice to the man Neil Armstrong, not to mention the historic moon landing. Scott was also very disappointed, as well, even in IMAX. Leo says that Damien Chazelle should have never been given the task of directing this film. Apollo 13 is much better. Scott does say that the immersive-ness of the space missions was truly impressive, however. The set design was also a bit inaccurate, and the music was rather rudimentary. It will be a sad thing if history considers this a proper depiction of Neil Armstrong.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Catches Scott's Attention

Episode 1097

Scott saw the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the next chapter of the Apes saga. The movie takes place ten years after The Rise of the Planet of the Apes and it shows the fallout from the Simian Flu that has decimated the human population. It address the issues of how people can live together and how fear can beget violence. Scott says it's fabulous.
