The Vaticans Movie Reviewer Disses ‘The Force Awakens’ HARD

By December 26, 2015

First off. The Vatican has a movie reviewer? That is strange on so many levels. That dude has an interesting job.

This man of mystery is Emilio Renzato and according to TIME he disliked Star Wars: The Force Awakens quite deeply saying it was:

Modeled on the sloppiest current action films derived from the world of video games. The only merit of J.J. Abrams’ film is to show, by contrast, how the direction of the previous films was elegant, balanced and above all appropriate

You gotta hand it to the guy for not being swayed by almost the rest of the entire universe who loved the movie or at least liked it right? I personally gave the flick a near perfect rating. One of the only teeny tiny things I nitpicked over was a couple of small misfires with the CGI (Snoak and Maz or as I call  her Maz the Minion) in an otherwise impressive mix of practical and computer effects. Renzato disagrees calling the entirety of the special effects:

The clumsiest and tackiest result you can obtain from computer graphics.

Did someone give him a copy of Phantom Menace as a Vatican joke? Not done yet he went on to criticize the Villains of The Force Awakens saying that they failed “most spectacularly” as representations of evil. That hurts the deepest! The Vatican just called Kylo Ren weak! In addition to the Vatican hard dissing Kylo, some hilarious human being has also started an “Emo-Kylo Ren” Twitter account over @KyloR3N if you’re interested. Here’s my personal favorite:

Simply glorious. Seriously did any of you know the Vatican had a movie reviewer guy? Stay tuned to GeekNation for more people being wrong about movies.

    of course I knew this. The original purpose of the Vatican movie reviewer was to tell faithful Catholics what movies they could NOT watch, under fear of being mind-poisoned or whatever. Excommunicated.
