It’s no wonder Anakin Skywalker would think to resolve political conflicts by conversion or coercion instead of tolerance and persuasion.
Despite all of the mess and controversy, Ron Howard, Kathleen Kennedy, and the folks at Lucasfilm have made a fun and entertaining Star Wars film.
Luke Skywalker could be the hero of the story, except for him there were no stakes. There is no risk, and without risk, there is no glory.
‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ is an egregiously bad movie: Poorly written, badly directed, lazily acted, and bombastically grating in both sound and image.
From the early reactions I saw online, I expected ‘The Last Jedi’ to be the best Star Wars movie since ‘Empire Strikes Back.’ That it is not.
The Last Jedi explores the nature and purpose of the force in the universe, but is distracted with drab and childish conflict between characters you don’t really care about.
The Russo brothers have made memorable films as part of the ‘Avengers’ series. Disney should let them take over ‘The Last Jedi.’
More than a century ago, George Bernard Shaw visited the island monastery that now forms the iconic backdrop for the forthcoming Star Wars film.
Princess Leia displayed her strength as a woman, whereas most of the lead action females today are simply trying to imitate the strength of men.
Parents need to help their children develop a healthy understanding of death, and what it means. The right films, and the right conversations, can help.
Rogue One is about the soldiers. And for all its flaws, that’s what these standalone movies should be about.
If this theory is correct, then this is J.J. Abram’s greatest plot twist to date, and will be hard to top for the rest of his career.
There’s something about the Star Wars movies that touches a very primal chord in people—and not by accident.
Star Wars anticipation has peaked. But fans tempted to revel in nostalgia should heed Admiral Ackbar’s warning: ‘It’s a trap!’
Why I forgave George Lucas.
An engineering professor at Washington University in St. Louis has calculated that rebuilding the Death Star after the Battle of Endor would mean financial ruin for the Star Wars galaxy.
Disney just released a new international trailer for ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’, and it has a lot more action.
Mass murder is never justified, either in Star Wars’ Alderaan or our Tehran.
It looks like J.J. Abrams is going to give us an over-complicated, unwieldy film. But I’m not worried he will ruin the Star Wars franchise.
