FilmTake Reviews takes up the topic of movies from the viewer's perspective - mostly mine - instead of the usual commercial hype. Movies will not always be viewed through rose-tinted glasses. It's a fact that there are lots of movies out there that some people may consider good and there are those that some may consider as bad. But it's really just a matter of personal choice. Generally, movies serve to succeed in entertaining audiences, no matter what people's opinions about them are.
Take for instance the three Star Wars prequels. Fans of the old trilogy had a lot to say about the origin story of Darth Vader. Most said it wasn't necessary and that the prequels ruined the franchise. George Lucas, on the other hand, said the last three movies were part of his grand plan for the series and that they were "just movies" that shouldn't be taken seriously. Despite the mixed reactions, the movies still earned a lot of money and fed the associated franchise business with more fuel to burn for many years to come.
Another example is Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Old fans also didn't like it and advised other fans to pretend it didn't exist. It still made a lot of money nevertheless and was still good entertainment for a new generation of viewers. Movies will still be movies and people will still be watching and making money from them no matter what reviews they get and llong after their time on the silver screen has passed.
Well, there will be more posts later. This is but a teaser of bigger posts to come. Enjoy your stay and have some popcorn and soda.
