Rogue One: A Star Wars Story – Make No Mistake This is a War Movie [Review]

My goodness, director Gareth Edwards had some pretty big shoes to fill – Rogue One had to bridge the fairly sizable gap between Episode III and IV, it had to tell a great story about how the plans for the Death Star were acquired, it had to fit thematically and visually with all the other films and yet still feel fresh.  Other films have tried that and failed – in this very franchise.  Anyway, that’s a tall order.  Luckily, in my mind, Rogue One succeeds on all counts.

Rogue One: First Star Wars Spin-Off is Exciting and Somewhat Meaningful [Review]

As evidenced by last year’s release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the galaxy, “far, far away,”  reigns supreme over pop culture once again. But the next release in the Star Wars universe proves to be a rather different, and somewhat challenging, sell for audiences: a spin-off set between episodes three and four of the intergalactic saga. Without the Skywalker family or lightsabers (mostly) as the main focus, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is a view of the inner workings of both sides of the all-out war between the Rebellion and the Empire. Rogue One could have easily been just a “cash grab” simply by inserting the words “Star Wars” to its title, but luckily, for the most part, it isn’t. Despite some issues, Rogue One is a fine expedition filled with new characters on both sides of the conflict that feel somewhat meaningful to the Star Wars universe.

Moana: Funny & Charming. Impossible Not to Love [Review]

It’s impossible not to love Moana; it’s so charming.   I was stuck elbow to elbow with a theater positively stuffed with little kids at that special age where they cough and sneeze without covering their mouths and I still had a good time.    I love the effort Walt Disney Animation put into its originality.  It’s not just retelling Fairy Tales anymore, it’s showing a different kind of life with different stories and different practices.  I loved the way Moana looked, especially the way the people moved when they danced.  It was gorgeous.
