Movie Review: Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

Simple Review: I’ve got a bad feeling about this

Well, my fellow film fanatics, we have done it: we have reached the “end” of the space saga that blasted its way onto movie screens and into pop culture way back in 1977. Star Wars started my love of movies all those years ago and cursed me with a lifetime supply of useless knowledge about Jedi Knights, YT-1300 Corellian freighters and armor-clad Mandalorians ( yes I knew about them waaaaay before it was cool!).

There are rumors and a few pictures for Episode 9 out there on the inter webs, but I am not going speculate on these rumors as it is way to early in the process of making this movie to believe any of these ” insider” rumors. Back to Episode 8, I am not going to bash on The Last Jedi as well. I enjoyed some parts, and other parts make me want to hit myself in the head with a hammer! ( Looking at you Canto Bight) So, let’s dive in… Continue reading “My one question for Star Wars: Episode 9”
