Kevin Smith Talks, The Last Shot Of ‘Episode IX’ – “It Will Melt Your Mind”

Published

on

“When you see this it will melt your mind”

With 2019’s San Diego Comic-Con International coming to a close, many are trying to gather themselves and wrap their heads around the overload of information that spilled its way out of the fan favorite festival. With all the news that usually accompanies Comic-Con, fans can sift through and take away what means most to them. Well, per usual, Kevin Smith has dropped more than just his ‘Jay And Silent Bob: Reboot’ trailer. In a recent interview to come out of Comic-Con, Smith was asked about his visit to J.J. Abrams ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’ set, and he did not disappoint:

“There was a scuttlebutt about a set there at Pinewood. A big set that they were like, ‘You have to see this, when you see this it will melt your mind.’ I was like ‘What was it?’ They’re like ‘Ask J.J.’ And so I asked J.J. I was like, ‘They keep telling me I should see the set.’ And he goes, ‘Don’t.’ I said ‘Why?’ He said, ‘It’s the last shot of the movie.’ So I was like, ‘Well, now I REALLY want to see it.’ He said, ‘You don’t want to be spoiled. You want to be in a theater when this happens, trust me.’ And then other people on the crew were like, ‘Bro, I wish I hadn’t seen it. I’m glad I did, but it will melt your mind.”

I’m not sure what level of “God-Like” will power one would have to have, in order to not take at least the smallest peek at what Abrams has in store for the conclusion for Episode IX. Never the less, Smith resisted and continued to explain his reasoning for not even taking a quick look:

“So for that reason alone, as inquisitive as I am, and curious as I am, I desperately wanted to go look. But when you talk to the magician and the magician’s like ‘Trust me on this one.’ Sometimes as human beings we want to know how they pull the rabbit out of the hat. But J.J.’s such a magical magician that I’m just like ‘You know what? OK, trick me.’ I’ll wait and get tricked. Even though I could’ve seen what it was, I was like ‘I’ll sit back. I’ll like your plan.’ He’s never let me down so far.”

‘The Rise of Skywalker’ is shrouded in secrecy. It sounds like we will still have to wait until December 20th to discover the mysteries that Abrams has in store for us. Check out the video below of Kevin Smith’s interview.

Snow White Will Be The Worst Live Action Disney Remake: Here’s Why

Published

on

It’s no surprise that Disney’s latest foray in the live-action space has come to remaking the animated classic Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. Admittedly, the remakes are not inherently bad but this latest Marc Webb project may be the straw that breaks the camel’s back. Many of the remakes have been criticized for lacking the magic and charm of their animated counterparts. That may be true in some cases but Snow White seems like a remake to take the cake for that and the film hasn’t even been released. 

Not only does it seem that the film is going against the grain of what made the 1937 film so memorable, it decided to delay its release to 2025, which is usually not a good sign. 

Snow White isn’t a love story anymore

According to lead actress Rachel Zegler’s comments, “People are making these jokes about ours being the PC Snow White, where it’s like, yeah, it is—because it needed that. It’s an 86-year-old cartoon, and our version is a refreshing story about a young woman who has a function beyond “Someday My Prince Will Come“.

 

Having a character go beyond a love story is perfectly fine, but when filmmakers are remaking a classic tale that was largely based around the idea of romance and a strong love story, not making romance the focus of said remake will only lead to undercut what the 1937 film achieved.

It may not be Zegler’s fault that she was cast and is a larger problem that relies on Disney but the fact that the Mouse House cast a Columbian instead of a white actress when the movie is called “Snow White”, not “Off White”. 

 

Destroying the fabric and race of who Snow White is supposed to be almost makes it an insult to the character. She’s a great actress but this was not the vehicle for her.

 

Cast comments and director silence

Zegler has not done herself any favors by practically spitting on the legacy of the 1937 film and she and the filmmakers have decided to not only make a love story but also add (mostly) CGI dwarves instead of real actors. 

 

Moreover, director Marc Webb of “The Amazing Spider-Man” duology has been radio silent about the movie and apparently has been tapped to direct a Bermuda Triangle movie. That’s all probably because he knows that “Snow White” is going to suck.
