Quick-Thoughts: Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order (2019)

Here’s the issue when you have a film critic reviewing a video game: I’ll, more than likely, review the game as if it were a movie or a TV show. If you’re looking for an opinion from someone who’s familiar and critical of the actual gameplay/technical aspects of video games, you probably shouldn’t consider my […]

A List of Some “Simplified” Spoilers for The Rise of Skywalker

SPOILER ALERT FOR STAR WARS EPISODE IX: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER I’ve seen the movie twice now. I have many spoilers to discuss.  C-3P0’s inclusion is the best part of The Rise of Skywalker. “Search your feelings. You know it to be true.” It’s nice to see that the iconic droid has finally received a […]

Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker is a Franchise-Killing Disaster

This review is spoiler-free. Don’t worry, you’re safe!  “Story Overload” is a dangerous disease. TV Shows can suffer from it. Books can suffer from it. Movies can suffer it. But more commonly, unplanned trilogies can suffer from it. “Story Overload” is the contagious concept of a movie having to many plot points, schemes, and objectives […]

Solo: A Star Wars Story REVISITED—for a Few LONG Paragraphs

2nd Viewing I can vividly picture the lead, cooperate managers at Disney involved with the making of this tenth installment in the blindly worshipped Star Wars franchise… There lies a few faceless men and women, barking orders and pointing fingers with their Mickey Mouse gloves on at talented teams of inspiring moviemakers. These are the kind […]

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) REVISITED—for Three Short Paragraphs…

3rd Viewing I have barely anything to say about Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Fans will fall head over heels for it because it’s two straight hours of unashamed fan service. Critics will think it’s alright because at least Gareth Edwards knows how to make a pretty-looking action flick. I, myself, think it’s “whatever,” […]

Star Wars (1977) REVISITED

??? Viewing Part IV of VIII of My “Skywalker” Binge Finally. Now, onto the great stuff.  Believe it or not, there was a time when Star Wars movies could be wildly inventive, vibrant in the characters it created, and humble in its pacing. In 1977, Lucas had invented Star Wars: a movie made out of […]

Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith (2005) REVISITED

??? Viewing  Part III of VIII of My “Skywalker” Binge Wow, CGI drastically improved in the course of only three years. Thank!  Just from observing the opening scene of Revenge of the Sith, it was clear that Lucasfilm studios and George Lucas’s devoted counterparts wanted to make a film that didn’t completely abandon the prequels […]
