Rise of Skywalker Trailer Reaction

Now that I have had some time to digest this new trailer (and watch it about 8 more times), I’ve come up with a few thoughts. Some conclusions I’ve made based on what I’ve gleaned from the trailer; others are based on some of the other things I’ve read on the Internet. Everyone is posting their theories and trailer break downs, but this is my Rise of Skywalker trailer reaction. If you haven’t watched the new trailer yet, or again (and again), then go do that now (or again). I think this trailer is much different than the other two; it’s far more nebulous. There [… Click to Continue …]

The Final Skywalker Trailer

A bittersweet event. The last trailer before the release of Rise of Skywalker and the final trailer for the Skywalker saga, released on Carrie Fisher’s birthday. Here it is! HOLY KENOBI OMGBBQ!!! We were regaled with this trailer for the first time during Monday Night Football. Fortunately you didn’t have to watch the game, just half time. Much to Tom Brady’s chagrin, that is the only reason anybody tuned into the game because nobody likes watching the Patriots. By no means is this the last Star Wars trailer, there are at least three more coming in 2022, 2024, 2026. Potentially more if the rumor mills [… Click to Continue …]

Movie Review: Avengers Endgame

Avengers: Endgame Directed By: Anthony Russo, Joe Russo Starring: Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo My Rating: Despite the looming “Superhero Burnout“, this movie is crushing it at the box office. It is already breaking the same records The Force Awakens broke four years ago. I fully expect this film to continue to break records set by Star Wars, including top grossing movie of all time in the domestic box office. Honestly, I’m glad it’s a Marvel movie too. In the spirit of the #DontSpoilTheEndgame trend, this is a SPOILER FREE movie review, however if you have not seen Infinity War yet, then consider [… Click to Continue …]

Movie Review: Captain Marvel

Captain Marvel Directed By: Anna Boden Starring: Brie Larson, Samuel L Jackson My Rating: A Kree by the name of Vers (Brie Larson) crashes on Earth, circa 1995. She is hunting Skrull who are seeking technology the Kree do not want them to have. Assisting her on her mission is SHIELD agent Nick Fury. During her search she also has flashbacks that seem to be from a previous life. Are these flashbacks key to defeating the Skrull and/or helping her find out who she really is? Biggs’ Review I really enjoyed this movie. I can’t say if it’s the witty writing or the homage to [… Click to Continue …]

Star Wars: Luke Isn't Broken in The Last Jedi

Several new stories keep popping up on social media that Disney (or J.J.) are calling in George Lucas to “fix Luke”. Apparently Luke’s character evolution did not appeal to many people. This isn’t just some other thing the manbabies cried about on social media; some of my friends have made similar comments. Luke’s behavior is exactly what I was expecting so I’m not sure what needs to be “fixed”. You’ve heard the idiom “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it”; well I believe Luke isn’t broken in The Last Jedi. The Trailer and TFA Made It Very Clear When the trailer came out, I’m sure [… Click to Continue …]
