Empress is six issues of a comic series I got to review. It has a very strong flavor, great noir visuals, and a strong story. Please check out my review at http://moviepilot.com/posts/3764841. Thank you.
I’d seen Star Wars, The Force Awakens, two different times. It took me a long time to consider how I felt about it. The film was not by George Lucas. No matter how much I tried to see it, it was a very different movie. It had some great shots, nice computer graphic work, strong alien concepts, diverse worlds, and a solid story. The characters in this movie, whether it was Rey, Daisy Ridley, Finn, John Boyega, or Kylo Ren, Adam Driver, were strong. You immediately understood the balance of Rey in the film. John Boyega’s character, for me, was someone to watch for in the films going forward. I loved the split within Adam Driver’s character. How could I forget Poe Dameron’s, Oscar Isaac’s, purpose in the story?
In the end, I hope these writers create arcs for all of these characters that are uplifting, but can and will pull the rug from under everyone’s feet. I enjoyed how the film felt very much like after the war. It was very much like after a World War, if it were in space. Though many compared the film to Star Wars, Episode 4, this film used the similar backdrop very well and established a different way in this universe. The surprise in the film seemed obvious when it arrived. When” it” happened, it was sad. The characters’ reactions were even better. There could be some solid foreshadowing because of it.
I loved the light saber fight scene, at the end, but wondered about one element in part of that scene. One character was not what they seemed. However, it begged a question. The definition of light saber, highlighted in Wikipedia, defined it as a weapon used by Jedi and Sith, who are skilled, and use it for combat and defense. A major character handled one, but I wondered what their part was going to be in this film series. It might not be anything. Different rules are could be applied in this universe. However, it would be cool if something more could be made of the character. Star Wars, The Force Awakens, is solid. It just needed to be solid.

You dream of something. You consider your options. You see eternity. Dark hair. Creamy skin. Luscious, vibrant red lips. A smile that you cannot resist. Great down to earth personality. Real work ethic. A drive. You work harder. You want to get closer. You feel like you’re there. Work gets challenging. It just has different modes. You don’t want to burden her. Anyone. You look forward to “her” through all of it. She doesn’t know. A man, him and me, has to get closer. You see how. You take it. You make mistakes.
Your world changes. You want to stay, but the game changes. You find a place near her. Don’t lose it. You must wait. You look to see what went wrong while you wait. You remember, years ago. Another woman. Dark hair. Vibrant red lips. Creamy skin. Work ethic. A smile? She fought for you. You wanted her. The fear of that finale. You walked away.
You want her now. They’re not the same, but the feeling of finding that connection. The essence of life. That circle. It makes you want to work even harder. You search. You carry a vive essence, though you lost some pieces within, to get what you want. Her. Her. Her.
She doesn’t know what it means to hold hands, be close to her, or embrace her.
She means creation. Aphrodite’s ballad means happy times. This woman will kick your ass. She will love you just the same overall. You can build so much together. Her. Her. Her. It will not be complete until she finds you. You her. Know to commit. Want to commit. Her. Her. Her.
It is great to be a Philadelphia Eagles fan, but it comes at a cost. The 2014 season is here. The Eagles have one win under their belt. It seems like it is going to take a bigger effort for the team to get where it needs to go. They must remain calm, potent, and unassuming throughout the whole ride, and every ride.
In a town where baseball suffers, the Flyers are unsure, and the Sixers get valid pieces, the Philadelphia Eagles get to overcome a reality. They are the current focus. It is not something the Philadelphia Union gets to write. You look at the Union and they are writing that history for a team in the future. Congratulations on getting in the playoffs. The other teams must overcome past history.
Every team should try to, in every city. You break the past and you write your own future. If the Phillies, combine old players, and new additives, or add the right new players and win two World Series, consecutively, they do better than the teams before them. They rewrite success in the town, for the particular sport. The same for the Sixers, get that right mix of players and win, and Flyers, keep mixing lineups and push to that cup.
You hope the Eagles mix, have fun and push for perfection, but never get too full of gusto. You hope they see themselves there, with a relentless, guiltless, domination. Get that championship. Fill Broad Street and Frankford Avenue with jade exhilaration. Now you have to do it again, unconsciously. Open up the emotional well, the troubles, and strife when it is time to retire, to leave, or when a trade comes up. You, as fans, can only hope the team keeps it together, knows every opposing team is just another set of guys, no matter how dynamic, and can be beaten.
I see outside of Philly, a rival, the Washington Nationals, in baseball, has to overcome a history before them, in the Montreal Expos. They had decent teams, in the past, but had a history of bad squads. Fans have to believe once they see past this; the Nationals will write some new history. Monday Night, the Eagles write an undeniable, unstoppable history. Shift onward, repeat, beat the past, repeat, move forward, and do not stop. Go Eagles!
