Star Wars: The Last Jedi is Beautiful but 40 Minutes Too Long (Review)

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is Beautiful but 40 Minutes Too Long (Review)

My goodness it was not easy to get in to see Star Wars: The Last Jedi.  Long line-ups just for seating, sold out shows, no parking – there probably isn’t any need to review this because you’ve probably already seen it, whoever you are.  For those sane few who were not competing for the same seats as I was this weekend, this review is for you.  I’m not a rabid fan, I don’t really think Star Wars is any better than some of the other movies this year.  Still, there’s something wonderful about Star Wars, isn’t there?  The droids, the aliens the Jedi, the Force, the Spaceships, I love all of it and I couldn’t tell you exactly why.   Read more

Ranking The Star Wars Movies Including The Last Jedi

Ranking The Star Wars Movies Including The Last Jedi

The Star Wars Saga is probably the most popular film franchise in history. As loved as the saga is, not all of the movies are pure cinematic gold. There have been ups and downs, as expected with any franchise with 9 films. I had the privilege of seeing Star Wars: The Last Jedi on Monday and I thought it would be appropriate to rank all of the films from the worst to best. Let’s take a look below. Read more

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is the Year’s Best Blockbuster (Review)

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is the Year’s Best Blockbuster (Review)

After seeing Star Wars: The Last Jedi, I’m not surprised Lucasfilm is giving director Rian Johnson the keys to a new Star Wars trilogy after Episode XI; in fact, Rian Johnson’s now further involvement has me actually excited for the next Star Wars trilogy (and I’m not even a Star Wars fan). While The Last Jedi is a Star Wars movie, it also at times feels unlike any other Star Wars movie you’ve seen before. With that said, however, The Last Jedi is still a Star Wars movie through and through, and is filled with crowd-pleasing moments that should delight fans of the franchise. From the story and its gratifying twists and turns, to character developments for both new and old characters in the saga, to the movie’s dazzling action and visual effects, The Last Jedi is everything you could hope for in a grade-A blockbuster, and is easily one of the absolute best Star Wars movies in the franchise.

Star Wars The Force Awakens: Holy Shit, They Actually Pulled it Off [Review]

Star Wars The Force Awakens: Holy Shit, They Actually Pulled it Off [Review]

Just so we’re clear, I went into Star Wars already sick of it.  It’s all I’ve heard about the last 2 months from friends and co-workers, not to mention all the products that have Star Wars on them.  I have a low threshold for harassment.  Yesterday in preparation, we marathoned the original 3 movies and after that I could have waited another year for The Force Awakens to come out.  I did not intend to like The Force Awakens (and might have been harbouring some resentment), but I did intend to review it fairly – it had to succeed as a film on its own merits.  .
