“The Rise of Skywalker’s” mistakes are so apparent and avoidable that it's frustrating seeing how much better of a film it could have been.
Do science and comedy go together? Comedian Shane Mauss seems to think so, as did the crowd who packed the house to see Mauss’s touring comedy show "Stand Up Science."
With future episodes being undertaken by different writers and directors, the show’s future could be promising. Suspend judgment on the series as a whole until more episodes have come out and give Episode Two a chance when it premieres on Nov. 2. But until then, skip “The Body” in the hopes for a brighter future for the series.
Since direction of the plot is unexpected, the film is never dull, as simple moments can have large consequences and effects. Near the middle of the film, as two characters have a tense discussion in a car with one pointing a pistol at the other, we are never entirely sure whether or not that pistol will go off and, if it does, who will be on the receiving end of the bullet.
