Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back

star wars empire strike back

IMDB: 8.7

Director: Irvin Kershner

Produced By: ‎Lucasfilm Ltd.

Story By: George Lucas

Cast: Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher

Plot: An excellent sequel to Star Wars, this is the darkest and most serious out of all the Star Wars films. The character of the Yoda was first introduced in this movies and he accept Luke as his student and train him to become a Jedi. In the end Luke has to fight with the Dark Vader in an epic battle. It also introduces Lando Calrissian, Han’s Solo old gambling and smuggling buddy played very well by Billy Dee Williams. Empire is more character driven than the original and relies more on comic relief to help lighten the mood, but it doesn’t go overboard with the humor. The story is more refined and the acting is better as well. Despite all of this I can’t really say that I enjoyed Empire more than the original. The original Star Wars has a certain charm to it that none of the sequels (or prequels) have captured. I’d say that it is at least on par with the original though and is a fitting follow up in what is probably the greatest series of movies in the history of cinema.

This movie also takes a top spot in best action movies to watch on Disney Plus List.

IMDB: 8.4

Plot: This story is after what happened in Avengers: Infinity War where Thanos killed half of the Earth population. The remaining Avengers assembles and goes back in time to collect all the infinity stones and reverse what was earlier done by Thanos. All the Avengers come back to life then the epic battle between Thanos and Avengers begin. The saddest part is that although Avengers win the battle but Ironman lost his life in the process. One more thing which I missed in this movie was that the hulk role was very limited.

Wall E

IMDB: 8.4

Director: Andrew Stanton

Produced By:‎ ‎ FortyFour Studios, Pixar Animation Studios, Walt Disney Pictures

Story By:‎ Andrew Stanton, Pete Docter

Cast: Ben Burtt, Elissa Knight, Jeff Garlin

Plot: In a distant, but not so unrealistic, future where mankind has abandoned earth because it has become covered with trash from products sold by the powerful multi-national Buy N Large corporation, WALL-E, a garbage collecting robot has been left to clean up the mess. Mesmerized with trinkets of Earth’s history and show tunes, WALL-E is alone on Earth except for a sprightly pet cockroach. One day, EVE, a sleek (and dangerous) reconnaissance robot, is sent to Earth to find proof that life is once again sustainable. WALL-E falls in love with EVE. WALL-E rescues EVE from a dust storm and shows her a living plant he found amongst the rubble. Consistent with her “directive”, EVE takes the plant and automatically enters a deactivated state except for a blinking green beacon. WALL-E, doesn’t understand what has happened to his new friend, but, true to his love, he protects her from wind, rain, and lightning, even as she is unresponsive. One day a massive ship comes to reclaim EVE, but WALL-E, out of love or loneliness, hitches a ride on the outside of the ship to rescue EVE. The ship arrives back at a large space cruise ship, which is carrying all of the humans who evacuated Earth 700 years earlier. The people of Earth ride around this space resort on hovering chairs which give them a constant feed of TV and video chatting. They drink all of their meals through a straw out of laziness and/or bone loss, and are all so fat that they can barely move. When the auto-pilot computer, acting on hastily-given instructions sent many centuries before, tries to prevent the people of Earth from returning by stealing the plant, WALL-E, EVE, the portly captain, and a band of broken robots stage a mutiny.

This movie is a masterpiece in my opinion. I consider this movie a greatest creation of all time. No doubt it is in the list of best movies on Disney Plus

Plot: Emotions run wild in the mind of a beautiful little girl who is uprooted from her peaceful life in the Midwest and forced to move to San Francisco with her family in this Pixar adventure. Young Riley was perfectly content with her life when her father got a new job in San Francisco, and he moved across the country along with his family. Now, as Riley prepares to navigate a new city and attend a new school, her emotional headquarters becomes a hot bed of activity. As Joy (voice of Amy Poehler) attempts to keep Riley feeling happy and positive about the move, other emotions like Fear (voice of Bill Hader), Anger (voice of Lewis Black), Disgust (voice of Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith) make the transition a bit more complicated. This movie dictates how all the emotion of one child effects her everyday life and her decision making. This is one of the best Pixar movie and I insist that every parent must watch thi movie because it has a great meaning or message behind it.
