Star Wars: Rey, Ben, Kylo Ren, and Recruitment into a Hate Group

SPOILERS FOR RISE OF SKYWALKER!! Read on at your own risk. The Star Wars Prequels were about how fascists and hate rises to power. It focuses on someone gaining power, people with power refusing to stop them, how hate groups fear on people’s fear, and the removal of the illusion of democracy. The Original Star Wars trilogy is about how the belief in being better … Continue reading Star Wars: Rey, Ben, Kylo Ren, and Recruitment into a Hate Group

For Better & Worse: The Force of Nature that is Star Wars

At the end of 1983, it was presumed that the Star Wars series had come to an end even though they had been titled: Episode IV, V, and VI. They knew that eventually they would get the story before with I, II, and III. It wasn’t until 1999 that Episode I was released that brought to us the start of the prequel trilogy and the … Continue reading For Better & Worse: The Force of Nature that is Star Wars

Star Wars: Episode IX- The Rise of Skywalker (2019) Review

The final entry in the new Star Wars trilogy has finally come. Not only is it the end of the new trilogy but it’s being labeled as the final entry in the Skywalker saga and is supposed to wrap up the complete story from Episode I – Episode IX. There was a lot riding on this movie’s release whether it be the need to wrap … Continue reading Star Wars: Episode IX- The Rise of Skywalker (2019) Review

Star Wars: Episode VIII- The Last Jedi (2017) Review

Undoubtedly and without question the most divisive film in the Star Wars franchise. This is the film that split the fandom in two and created a toxicity that is unwarranted and downright uncalled for. Fandom in general whether it be Star Wars, Marvel, or DC has become a toxic cesspool of scum and villainy with many trying the hardest to attack people personally for liking … Continue reading Star Wars: Episode VIII- The Last Jedi (2017) Review

Star Wars: Episode VII- The Force Awakens (2015) Review

The force has awakened after a long slumber that many thought would be forever. With George Lucas closing the book on his Star Wars saga, many of us thought that we would never get another movie again despite his questionable claims of having plans for a sequel trilogy. Years pass after the release of Revenge of the Sith and it really did start to seem … Continue reading Star Wars: Episode VII- The Force Awakens (2015) Review

Star Wars: Episode VI- Return of the Jedi (1983) Review

Return of the Jedi is a mixed bag of decent and amazing. This movie has some of my least favorite parts of this trilogy and some of my most liked moments of the trilogy. It’s a hard placement on my ranking of Star Wars movies. I know a lot of people think this is the best of all of them and some not so much. … Continue reading Star Wars: Episode VI- Return of the Jedi (1983) Review

Star Wars: Episode V- The Empire Strikes Back (1980) Review

One of the best sequels of all time. My favorite Star Wars movie and my second favorite movie of all time. The Empire Strikes Back for many including me, is peak Star Wars. For the franchise this was uncharted waters of whether or not George Lucas could actually pull off making a successful sequel in an era where sequels weren’t that common especially successful sequels. … Continue reading Star Wars: Episode V- The Empire Strikes Back (1980) Review

Star Wars: Episode IV- A New Hope (1977) Review

This where everything started. This is the movie the laid the groundwork for the Star Wars universe we know today. There have been many video essays that cover the excellence of this movie. I do agree that this movie is fantastic and accomplished so much with the struggle it had just getting made. However, unpopular opinion, A New Hope is right dead in the middle … Continue reading Star Wars: Episode IV- A New Hope (1977) Review
