Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker

It amazes me how people can see the same movie and come out with drastically different opinions. Two of my friends really liked Rise of Skywalker; I, on the other hand, kept checking my watch to see when it would be over.

Personally, I found the movie to be slow and poorly scripted. As it is incredibly hard for me to support my opinion without giving away spoilers, you will just have to watch it and decide for yourself.

If you like it – GREAT!

If you don’t, I’m sorry you wasted $15 dollars and 2.5 hrs of your life.

My suggestion – wait until you can view it on Disney+ or get it from the library.

Solo

SoloI saw Solo a couple of weeks ago. The show was well acted and has more of a plot than most Star Wars movies. As much as I hate to say it, I was a little disappointed with the movie. While I thought the actors did a fabulous job, the overall story was not as much fun as I remember Star Wars movies being. There was not a lot of humor and the action violence was more serious/intense than I remember Star Wars films being. Also, there were more innuendoes than in previous Star Wars films.

The only reason I enjoyed the film was because I grew up watching the original Star Wars trilogy, so it was fun to see where Han Solo came from and how he met Chewbacca and Lando Calrissian. That alone made the movie worth watching; however, I’m not sure it made it worth paying to see it in the movie theaters.
