Disney announce Star Wars Episode 7!

And they want to make a few more Star Wars films, this cames on the back of George Lucas retirement and sale of his assets. LucasFilm, along with the Star Wars franchise and his other brands for $4.05 billion (£2.5 billion)

He understands and wants the legacy to continue and the Disney corporation maybe the best alternative to him. Very few other companies have the ability to keep what George has built over the years and hopefully it will be in the right hands.

I am a huge Star Wars fan, but considering how crap EPI was in 3D, I don’t see the point of seeing the next two!

Assassin’s Creed: Lineage

Last night the rain was pouring down and I really didn’t want to go anywhere. There wasn’t much I was interested in on the TV so I browsed throught the Playstation Home  network on my PS3.

What court my interest was a short film about 40 minutes long promoting Assassins Creed II. I didn’t know what to expect but the storyline was very well presented. Music and effects were also good. They clearly have spent a fair bit of money on this project.

It seemed to be missing something, or didn’t seem long enough in parts. It did feel very quick know. But gave a good account to the story as a whole.

For those that don’t have a PS3, you can watch the film on youtube. It’s something to enjoy if you’re a fan of the series like me.

The Dictator review

Sacha Baron Cohen plays a vile dictator and yet, no matter how good he is, is also how bad he is. The idea I thought was good, the acting so so, jokes are way below my conservative standards but still made me laugh.

Slap-stick value is off-the-chart on this, no one actor stands out as being exceptional, then this has never been about pure acting. Ending of the film is a clear political message to the American way of life in a comparison to a dictatorship.

I am not sure I need to learn the kind of Israeli language on offer and to be frank, at the end of the film I did feel fairly repulsed! But that tends to be his style.
