Movie Critic Article: Star Wars (The Galactic Cultural Events)

The Galactic Cultural Events
The last part of Star Wars, for the lovers of the series, is not just another part that is full of events and exciting successive planetary wars or adventures of the Jedi Knights seeking to suppress the evil and bring peace across the galaxy. Fans have seen a lot of this in the previous parts.
In this last part a whole generation of viewers come to watch the story of the end. To finalize the workshop which started from the middle parts thereof.The youth of the seventies of the last century who saw the story of the collapse of the forces of darkness and the return of the forces of good to lead the world in the first part of the series later subtitled by George Lucas as “Episode IV: A New Hope”, watch in their maturity the last part which tells the story of the beginning of the fading away of forces of good and the control of evil and dictatorship of The Galactic Republic.
In this part “Star Wars: Revenge of  the Sith-2005” Lucas awakens our minds to memories that dateback twenty years, when he released the last film in the first series “Star Wars: Return of the Jedi".
He seems to have restored the spirit of the philosophy that has been lost during his engagement with large-scale movie production and obsessive utilization of modern technologies of film industry in his mid-series films "The Phantom Menace" and "The Attack of the Clones".
George Lucas 1977
When we talk about the“Star Wars: Revenge of Sith” movie, we should not, as is the case with the other movies in the series, deal with it as a separate, independent movie. Star Wars movies constitute an integrated unit that actually has one and the same story to tell from the inception in the seventies of last century up to this last chapter we are dealing with today. A story that holds one message and one philosophy.
The only aspect that differed in all the six movies is George Lucas himself. There is such a huge difference between Lucas of the seventies,  a young and ambitious man trying to make his way in Hollywood and Lucas of  the millennium Hollywood, a tycoon with great influence. Star Wars is not one in a list of his movies but it is his one and only unique vision and philosophy that turned into a popular culture.
Begun as an experiment, a loose remake of Akira Kurasawa's "The Hidden Fortress", it became a phenomenon that drew the picture for an entire generation of American filmmakers and paved the way for Hollywood to broaden the horizons of entertainment film industry.
As expected, "Revenge of Sith"  is the most bleak of all the films in the two series. At the institutional level, it witnesses the tragic end to a free Republic. It marks the disappearance of the finest images of human civilization, the eclipse of democracy and the victory of the forces of Darkness and Evil.  This accompanies, on the human level, the psychological shift experienced by the young Anakin Skywalker, being torn between the forces of good, the Jedi, or the Knights of the Republic, and forces of evil that want to exploit his weakness and undermine all forms of goodness, and then achieve personal interests and establishment an empire of Dictatorship.
This last film concludes what has begun in the previous one "Star Wars: Attack of the Clones" 2002.
George Lucas in 2009
After three years of the wars of the Clones, the forces that turned against the Republic continue their fight from planet to another instigated by hidden hands to exhaust and destroy the Republic and aided by the efforts of Senator Palpatine who endeavours to seduce Skywalker to revolt against his teachers of the Jedi and eliminate their influence. Thus begins the transition of this young pacifist leader into the dreaded and dreadful dictator assuming a different name: Darth Vader.
Regardless of the fact that George Lucas had finished writing this part of his series before the end of the first Original Trilogy in the seventies, many changes may have occurred in this series because of the enormous progress that has happened in the film industry or because of the long periods of time that separated the different parts of the two Trilogies of six movies. Please find below the list of movies. Also take note that in 2008 an animated part was release under the title "Star Wars: The Clone Wars".

An Entity Unknown By: Mohamed Hamad- Translated From Arabic

Text by: Mohamed HamadTranslated by: Mustafa Mudathir

There is a tiny mystery;
an entity unknown that hymenates our souls for reasons undisclosed with a plasticine of thinness a sleazy film of boredom to blunt our insistence in dealing with existence. And verily those same songs,  enchanted as they are that ornament affect, the deepest and inmost, are turned to mere phonations that tend to bore at most.
The things you sought with passion are now dispelled around you devoid of early value, or heavily under-rationed. You like it, oh! no more, the stretching on your bed Nor do you like rising and nothing is surprising.
Your cup of tea, whose edges

سؤال الضهبان
لا تظنن أنه سؤال هيّن! أو عليك أن تتأكد أن السائل لم يعد ضهبان. وحتى في هذه الحالة ربما لم يجد الجواب ولكنه فقط تحوّل من (الضهب) إلى حالة أحسن نسبياً ودون تفسير. أي سؤال هو ليس بالهيّن. وأي سؤال هو لم يُسأل عبثاً ولهوا. زي، يلاقيك زول ويسأل: كيف اصبحت؟ تجربة وجودية عديل كدا. طيب تعال شوف كمية التزوير في الجواب! طبعاً مافي زول بيجاوب على السؤال دا بالضبط كدا. كلنا تقريبين في السؤال دا وفي غيره من اسئلة كثيرة. الجواب هو المصطنع في أغلب الأحوال وليس السؤال! ياخي حتى السؤال الغبي، الواحد بيتمرمط أمامه. لذلك سؤال الضهبان دا هو موئل الغناء والشعر الكاذب والبطولات! ومن الناس من يحاول أن يغشك! إنهم أهل الاجابات الذين تتكوّر ذواتهم في نهايات الأسطر، مدلهّمة. نقطة سطر جديد! - هوي انت هه! يعني شايل ليك اجابة كدا وفرحان بيها، قايل السؤال مات!؟ دعني أقول لك: جميع الأسئلة التي سمعت والتي لم تسمع بها، جميعها تتمتع بخلود مطلق! السؤال فيهو حيوية والاجابة ديمة نايصة. السؤال بيخلع وجامد. الجواب هو ختة النَفَس، التقية من عصف المشاعر. السؤال، أي سؤال، فيهو قوة، فيهو شواظ وبيطقطق زي قندول عيش ريف معذّب. الاج…

MovieGlobe: Japan's Version of Romeo and Juliet

Romeo and Juliet (2007) JapanOriginal Article by: Fateh Mirghani-Japan

I have just finished watching the masterpiece of Shakespeare” Romeo and Juliet “in its Japanese version.
The quality of the movie is great and the soundtrack, injected with a little Japanese folklore music, has given it a sensational dimension and Eastern fascination!
Basically, the theme of the movie remains the same as the original play, and that has been a particular Japanese notion in dealing with other nations’ cultural products. Part of the reason may lay in Japan's sensitivity to other nations’cultural products- given the long standing historical disputes with its neighbours, and part of it may lay in a fierce sense of homogeneity that has come to characterize Japan as an island nation-state since time immemorial. Thus the Japanese, unlike the Americans, don’t seem to have the temerity to ‘Japanize’ others’ cultural stuff. The movie “Renaissance man”  can be cited as an example of American boldness. The …
