Happy Star Wars Day (2024)

May the Fourth Be With You! On this Star Wars Day Lucasfilm has given us two great treats. The first is Tales of the Empire, essentially, season two of Tales of the Jedi. I haven’t had the opportunity to watch these yet, but they are on the list for this weekend.

The second big treat is a new, official trailer for The Acolyate. Check it out!!

The masked character at the end gives me Knights of Ren vibes. Obviously, it isn’t since the Knights of Ren were established after A New Hope (3 ABY) and this series is approximately 125 BBY.

This trailer definitely has me more intrigued than the teaser trailer.

How are you celebrating May the 4th?


Comedy Month (2024) – Donner and Gibson

The original intention was to go with a Mel Gibson comedy theme but then I realized that Richard Donner also directed all the movies I picked. If you are a movie aficionado like I am, you may have already guessed the films on this list this month. As I’ve said before, comedies are my favorite genre of film so picking just a handful is always difficult to do. However, I’m very satisfied with this month’s selections.

The Acolyte Trailer

Rumors were going around that The Acolyte would drop in June, well now it is confirmed. Here is the trailer for the upcoming Disney+ series that takes place near the end of the High Republic era.

There will be a two episode premiere on June 4th.

I cannot wait!


Drama Month (2024) – Based on True Events

The movie selections for Drama Month are those that are inspired by or are based on true events. I’m always a sucker for biopics and movies of significant historical figures and events. Again, I will write short reviews about each film but I will try to keep each review brief. Last month I may have been a bit loquacious.

I finished my watchlist early so this post is coming to you just before the end of the month. I do not anticipate fitting any more movies in before Comedy Month starts.

The Bad Batch Season Three Premiere

I’m not going to do a write-up for all The Bad Batch episodes as I’ve done for the live-action shows. However, I do want to drop some theories that I’ve come up with after watching the Bad Batch season three premiere. There shouldn’t be any major spoilers in the following supposition but I’m sure having seen all three episodes helps follow along.

This is your last “possible” spoiler warning in 3 .. 2 .. 1 …

My Rating:

No good deed goes unpunished. After fulfilling a promise made at the end of Captain Marvel, Carol made some enemies. These enemies seek to destroy her for the danger she has created for their people.
