I find the multiple reviews comparing it to Star Wars odd. I have yet to find anything ever like Star Wars. We shall see.
I know where it came from. Sorry I wasn't clearer. It's scary when someone compares look or feel of that world to something like the MCU. Makes me nervous it's creating some expectations that might not be warranted. I am curious to see where that is coming from.Star Wars came from The Hidden Fortress and John Carter of Mars.
Other than the Hero's Journey of course, but that's more of story structure.
Ah.I know where it came from. Sorry I wasn't clearer. It's scary when someone compares look or feel of that world to something like the MCU. Makes me nervous it's creating some expectations that might not be warranted. I am curious to see where that is coming from.
When you compare anything to Star Wars there are some instant expectations, I think that comes along with that. Either way, excited to see what the buzz is about.Ah.
Yeah, I don't know. Star Wars was pretty big in it's time, mostly because of the emergence of it's groundbreaking special effects. Cultural impact lasts today.
The funny thing is Star Wars is arguably not even a Sci-Fi movie. But yeah, even watching previews I didn't think of Star Wars at all. Guess that is just always gunna be what people compare to.

Yep. You got it.
An excellent point. I was hoping it wasn't going to be "Here is the plot line X, Y, Z, beat by beat" but that's literally what it was. Very predictable.Watched this because someone bought me a ticket. Completely expected, entirely forgettable, consume content. Boring, typical, sad.
Skimming the reviews, None of those issues seem to be the problems people have with the movie.Here is what might be influencing with it:
It is a Sci Fi Movie with several visuals that we have seen recently. It's heavily influenced by Star Wars and Dune.
The stakes seem very high but there is some humor so maybe that's why it seems uneven. This easily could have been just absolute darkness.
It's somewhat political. Certainly more than other Marvel movies.
