The Saga’s Endgame (Star Wars: the Rise of Skywalker, 2019)

All things must end they say. It seems like May 4th is the appropriate day for me to put out my review of the final film in the “Skywalker Saga”. While I saw the film twice in theaters, December and January passed before I…

All By Myself (Solo: A Star Wars Story, 2018)

Nothing But Star Wars Episode Eight (Star Wars: The Last Jedi, 2017)

I will be be honest.  Walking out of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, I had no idea just how controversial this film would be.  I wrote my first review and then rewrote it due to a spoiler claim. I watched as the film seemed…

Nothing But Star Wars Episode Three and a Quarter (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, 2016)

The Force Awakens, in spite of conflicting reviews had made Disney enough money to feel confident in going forward with their game plan.  Disney had set a goal of a Star Wars movie every Christmas. Since films of the blockbuster nature often can take…

Nothing But Star Wars Episode Seven (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, 2015)

After the prequels, Star Wars appeared to be…well, complete.  Lucas was no longer talking about a third trilogy.  All had gone quiet on that front.  Instead, Star Wars thrived in animated fare like the Cone Wars cartoon and in comic books through Dark Horse….

Nothing But Star Wars Episode Three (Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, 2005)

As previously noted, people were pretty resigned to Star Wars remaining a trilogy of parts four through six.  Then it was announced, Lucas had decided episodes one through three could finally be made.  He stated that the technology had reached a point that he…
