From May the 4th through the opening weekend for Solo: A Star Wars Story, Disneyland’s Tomorrowland has a makeover hailing from a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away.

Movie Review – Solo: A Star Wars Story

I’m certainly not disappointed. I think this one was better than the other new Star Wars movies, except for Rogue One. I’m impressed that they managed to hit all of the important back story elements to Han’s character, without it feeling forced or cheesy. My only complaint is that the story dragged on a bit, …

Movie review: Star Wars: The Force Awakens

I can safely say that SW:TFA is the 3rd best *Star Wars* movie in the franchise. And let’s be clear: it would take a miracle for JJ Abrams to create something better than *A New Hope* or *Empire Strikes Back*. This is easily the funniest movie in the franchise. Almost (but not every) funny moment …

Movie Review – Star Wars – A New Hope

*A New Hope* runs very closely to the number one spot that *Empire Strikes Back* occupies in the SW oeuvre — clipping its heels, as it were. It started the whole mythology and adventure in a well told opening story. It’s almost perfect. But the “official” name, *A New Hope,* is just lame. This movie …

It’s got everything: adventure, humor, romance, exciting space action that still holds up after …

Movie Review – Rogue One : A Star Wars Story

Grade: A- There’s a lot to like about this movie. The humor, particularly from K-2SO, or K-2 as he’s more often referred to, is outstanding. I have to say, K-2 really carried the movie. It’s not going to happen, but I would love to see a movie with him as the main character. He’s that …

Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie review

Grade: A- I can safely say that SW:TFA is the 3rd best Star Wars movie in the franchise. And let’s be clear, it would take a miracle for JJ Abrams to create something better than New Hope or Empire Strikes Back. This is easily the funniest movie in the franchise. Almost, but not every, funny …

We Didn’t Start The Fire – Movie References

Billy Joel made an historical hit in 1989, with pop song We Didn’t Start The Fire. Historical pop songs are a small genre (I can also think of One Week and Big Bang Theory, both by the Bare Naked Ladies), but mighty catchy to listen to, try as you might to catch all the cool …
