Star Wars Book Review: Dark Disciple

I knew I put off reading Christie Golden's Dark Disciple for too long, but now that I've actually finished the book, I'm furious with myself for putting it off so long. I'm more furious with Disney for canceling Clone Wars in its prime. If you don't know, Dark Disciple is the continuation of Asajj Ventress' character arc from… Continue reading Star Wars Book Review: Dark Disciple

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland

What up, nerds. It's been a while since I've posted about Star Wars on this blog, but if there is anything that can properly drag me back to this fandom it's an immersive experience the likes of which only Disneyland is capable of.

Clone Wars is Saved – Why Is It Important?

I willed Star Wars: The Clone Wars back into existence. I'm serious. The day before Comic Con, I was gushing about the long-cancelled animated series as my true entrance into the Star Wars universe and how everyone should watch it, and the very next day, Disney drops the trailer for the show's return. That can't be… Continue reading Clone Wars is Saved – Why Is It Important?

I'd been dying to try this, and I finally convinced a friend to come with me. (Who knew some people don't want to… Continue reading Star Wars: The Virtual Reality Experience

Solo: A Star Wars Meh

If this trailer had been a fan-made film, I would have gushed about how they did a great job.  "You guys made cool effects, an interesting (fanfic) backstory premise, and an awesome Chewbacca impression," I would have said.  But no.  This was a real Star Wars trailer. I don't know anyone who wanted this movie to… Continue reading Solo: A Star Wars Meh

Spoiler Free Review of The Last Jedi

It happened, y'all.  Star Wars: The Last Jedi dropped and I'm a bit of a mess.  Now, I'm going to be real with you: if you're expecting the groundbreaking, awe-inspiring, gravity-defying splendor that fans credit to The Empire Strikes Back, you're not going to find it because, well, who can live up to that?  No one.  I… Continue reading Spoiler Free Review of The Last Jedi
