Rogue One draws deep on Star Wars mythology while breaking new narrative and aesthetic ground — and suggesting a bright blockbuster future for the franchise.

my rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

my review: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is a furiously paced, deftly plotted joy, bursting at the seams with disquieting imagery and carrying a disturbingly dark undercurrent.

THE TOP FIVE REASONS STAR TREK IS BETTER THAN STAR WARS

Well, having watched BOTH Star Trek and Star Wars, I now have this to say regarding the debate over if Star Trek is better than Star Wars:

5. Agree with this one; I’m not sure if anything can top that explosion of Praxis.

4. “For the last time, I’m a human, not a cyborg!”~attributed to Dr. Montgomery Bones.

3. The Enterprise hands down. The Millenium Falcon doesn’t even come close to the Enterprise.

2. Pavel Chekov is a comedic goldmine. Jar Jar Binks is nothing more than a caricature and a stereotypical version of a Jamaican. George Lucas needs to apologize to Jamaicans for this gross depiction of them.

1. “KHAAAAAAAANNN!!!” You can’t beat that no matter how hard you try.

Well, I guess Star Trek wins this round. Feel free to comment.

Life, The Universe and Cueball Col

I probably could’ve done a bigger list than this but I wanted to keep the Star Trek theme running on from the Young Spock pictures that surfaced earlier this week. Not that I expect anyone to disagree with my following choices, but should you feel the need to point out a differing viewpoint please feel free to avail yourself of the comments at the bottom of the post. Alright, lets get on with it…

It looks like Lucas was watching a bit of the ole Undiscovered Country before he decided to go re-jigging the original trilogy.

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

After all this time, I’ve wondered why on earth would I even bother reading this book. I mean, the entire series felt like a rip-off of Star Wars (which wasn’t all that great either, to be honest) and it did nothing for me but offend me as a fan of fantasy books and such.

(even the movie was better)

And now it all boils down to the end of the series, which felt like a chore and not an exciting book. Here, I was expecting something big to happen, but never got it.

Well, I could just give it a zero and toss out my copies of the book, but to be fair, I’ll give it two stars and hope he comes up with something original and nothing to do with this epic failure of a novel.

Name of Movie: Robot Chicken: Star Wars

Director: Seth Green

Year Released: June 17, 2007

Summary: Robot Chicken does a rather hilarious send-up about one of the most famous sci-fi/fantasy stories out there! It absolutely butchers everythig Star Wars, not to mention kicks off two crazy sequels, both which are funny in their own way.

My review: absolutely one of the funniest send-ups about Star Wars that I have seen in a long time!

My recommendation: Who ever loves Star Wars or Robot Chicken the TV show or BOTH will love this movie!!

My rating: *****
