When Peter Lorre’s The Dark Side of the Force landed on Netflix – a review
The Dark Sides of the Future are the last of Peter Lorres’ trilogy of movies, and they’re the one I was hoping would come to Netflix.
The story of a young boy named Luke Skywalker (voiced by Tom Hanks) and his adventures through the galaxy’s various star systems is one of my favourite films of all time, but it also has a very specific kind of nostalgia that’s never been explored by mainstream cinema.
I’ve been following the saga of Luke Skywalker since it was first released in 1980, and I was curious to see what I could make of it.
The Dark Knight Trilogy is my favourite Batman movie, and it’s the kind of movie that you can’t really get wrong if you’re a fan of the franchise.
It’s the first movie I watched in high school, and since then I’ve been watching The Dark Forces of Evil, a movie with some of the most iconic action sequences in film history, and The Force Awakens, another film from the Star Wars franchise that was released in December 2015.
What can I say about The Force Unleashed that hasn’t already been said already?
I have never really enjoyed the Dark Forces series as a movie series.
As a teenager, it wasn’t really my thing.
I liked the idea of a teenage superhero team up with some cool weapons and gadgets, but the movie was far too focused on Luke and Rey, two boys who just didn’t quite fit into the franchise’s overall structure.
The Force, like many of its predecessors, was more about the story of Rey and Luke, and the action sequences were more of a throwback to the original trilogy.
The series, like its predecessor, also tried to bring the galaxy to life through CGI and special effects.
However, The Force was far from the first of its kind.
A little over a decade ago, a few talented people at LucasArts created the first fully animated film in the series, and in that same year, The Dark Force Strikes Back was released.
The movie itself had some great special effects, but as a sequel to the previous film, it was far more focused on the adventures of Rey, Luke and their friends.
The plotline in this film seemed to be moving in the same direction as the first, with the characters being forced to take action against the Sith.
Although it was more of an homage to The Dark Sith than its predecessor (the Sith were evil beings that had invaded the galaxy years before), it still was a good way to introduce some new characters into the series.
While this film wasn’t exactly an immediate hit, it did manage to become a very popular franchise movie.
It was the first film to be directed by a woman, and its star Carrie Fisher was also a big part of the cast, playing a young girl named Rey.
While the original film was a huge success, The Empire Strikes Back became a huge box office hit, earning $1.4 billion worldwide.
In the years that followed, The Sith Saga continued to expand, with sequels being released each year.
It didn’t get as much attention as the previous films, but its sequel, The Phantom Menace, was also hugely successful.
After The Phantom Manace, The Clone Wars was released as a trilogy of five movies, which was also the first time LucasArtes had released a new trilogy.
As it turned out, the Clone Wars trilogy was the best of the bunch, and for a while, it became a staple for all of us.
In this year’s film, Luke Skywalker and his companions, the Resistance, are on a mission to destroy the evil Darth Vader, and Luke finds himself fighting against the same kind of evil he once fought in The Phantom Force.
It’s a bit of a departure from the series’ usual approach, and while the characters aren’t exactly new to the franchise, they’re not exactly clones either.
Instead, these characters are all people who have gone through a similar journey in life.
The Resistance members have been raised by Force-sensitive parents and raised in a Jedi Order; the clone soldiers of the Resistance are the descendants of clones who fought in the Clone War; and the Emperor is the leader of the dark side of the force.
I can’t wait to see The Force for myself.
The new trilogy is the most exciting thing since the Clone Saga, and with the next film coming out next year, there’s every chance it will become a hit.
The fact that the story is so different from the last movie means it can be even more thrilling to watch as a fan.
This is a new approach that I haven’t seen before, and if it does well, I think I’ll be able to watch it for a long time to come.
