The Apocalypse Force Awakens Now

Movie makers are very sneaky. They will insert all kinds of subliminal images and messages in their movies. Watching Star Wars: The Force Awakens I noticed a take in the movie on Apocalypse Now, the classic Vietnam film directed by Francis Ford Coppola.

In Apocalypse Now there is a famous scene where American helicopters on an attack mission are backdropped by the rising sun. The director of The Force Awakens uses the same concept when the bad guys in their TIE fighters are on the attack. Quite cool actually.
