Considering this is the movie to end a nine film franchise that spans over 42 years, it lacks a lot of the key planning which could have made it the rightful end to the Star Wars and Skywalker story. Being … Continue reading Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker (2019) Review
J.J Abrams is clearly a Star Wars fan. That much is clear as you watch the first twenty minutes or so of the The Force Awakens. It feels non-stop and relentless with the storm-troopers, a menacing villain who is not unlike … Continue reading Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015) Review
This week, James Gunn, director of The Guardians of the Galaxy, hit back at attempts to publish a “scoop” about the upcoming sequel, titled very imaginatively Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
