King Kong or Gozilla, 7 July 2012
Author: José Pedro Gomes from Portugal

I would enjoy this episode if I hadn't seen King Kong or Godzilla, if I didn't notice that several episodes are pastiches of other classics as this one, if I hadn't confirmed that many episodes are what we call in Portuguese "encher (fill) chouriços (sort of sausage)", metaphorically meaning to fill something just for the appearances. As a 4 years old veteran fan of the original theatrical Star Wars, my heart was broke when the new episodes came to cinema, when noticing my imagination created from the missing links of the original story were filled as I said, as a "chouriço" with pastiches of other movies. It's not a Tarantino's recycling geniality, it's the inability of creating a strong plot in dedication to the genial original Star Wars storytelling what was missing from the original beautiful and old Greece mythological and Freudian story. It's the proof that imagination is lacking. How could it be, with so many years separating the 2 trilogies. Unacceptable. Perhaps for the young jedi fans it seems innovative, but for this old jedi the force isn't indeed with the cloak of the new special effects.

(update): For now, in general, I'm frankly surprised with the great quality of the third season
