The remaining actors in this clandestine audition are, Taron Egerton of Kingsman fame, Jack Reynor (Transformers-Age of Extinction, Macbeth) and Alden Ehrenreich who starred in Beautiful Creatures and had a part in the Cohn Brothers, Hail Ceasar!

Season Three lurks around the corner for Mike Tyson’s Mysteries. This Sunday April 17th at 11:45 PM a new episode will air on Adult Swim.

Since The Force Awakens opened on December 18th 2015 fans and critics showered praise on this  mega event of a movie. It blew past many box office records including biggest domestic debut at $238  million, and most presales every at over $100 million (Variety).  Some called it “unimaginative” and “a complete rip-off”. A few even created lists of plot holes. Now available on DVD/ Blu-Ray, The Force Awakens is much more than meets the eye. If you notice  when J.J. Abrams answered the critics, he does not give a firm rebuttal to their arguments. J.J. cannot do this without giving away main parts of the story for episode eight and nine. He keeps a  silent eye on the meta-story, taking a deep perspective on the series, and hopes Star Wars fans will  do the same.

Perception is everything. View this movie again and imagine, The Force itself as a mighty cosmic  phenomenon. A lifetime event occurring much like Category Five Hurricanes and Great Blizzards.

Hidden within this gem of a movie is George Lucas’s secret character The Force itself. The Force  is the One Ring of this Sci-Fi soap opera universe, semi-sentient and moving events on its own. (more…)
