Review: ‘Born in China’ is aggressively average

Though it’s nowhere near artsy, the film is far from a waste of time.

Next Two Star Wars Films Have A New Writer/Director

Next Two Star Wars Films Have A New Writer/Director

By Nick Marini

Episodes VIII and IX from Disney’s continuation of George Lucas’ “Star Wars” franchise have a new writer/director at the helm: Rian Johnson. The news broke late Friday morning.

He was the creative force behind the movie “Looper” (2012), starring Bruce Willis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Emily Blunt, which was one of the most critically-acclaimed, completely original sci-fi movies of the past 20 years, collecting over $66 million in US box offices and receiving numerous critics’ awards and nominations. He also wrote and directed the neo-noir “Brick” (2005), also starring Gordon-Levitt, which early-on solidified him in the industry as a young, refreshingly classicist, entertaining filmmaker that incorporates old-school skill to fast-paced plots and twisted stories. Arguably the best work in his filmography, however, included two of the most critically-acclaimed episodes of “Breaking Bad:” “The Fly” and “Ozymandias.”
