This one is pretty cool. James Arnold Taylor helped with it (lending his voice and playing a part as well).

‘The Rise of Skywalker’ Spoiler Free Review

December 19, 2019 at 10:29 pm | Posted in Episode IX, Miscellaneous, Movies, Reviews, Star Wars | Leave a comment

I liked it. Seriously, I can think of no better way to summarize it than that. Somehow I managed to stay spoiler free, kept my expectations low by cutting myself off from all the extra trailers and TV spots, went in, and enjoyed it. It was great. Was it the best Star Wars movie ever? No. But it wasn’t the worst, either. It took a little while to settle in, but once I was in, I was having fun. There were surprises, and thankfully, I enjoyed them all.

Going in, I was still on a high from Chapter 7 of The Mandalorian. I really didn’t have any excitement to see The Rise of Skywalker. I stopped watching trailers a long time ago in order to keep things fresh. But doing so also killed the hype. That build up, that anxiousness to see what would happen, I cut myself off from it. So when I sat down and waited for the movie to kick on, there was not a lot of emotion or anticipation. Then you see that Lucasfilm logo pop up, and you know it’s about to begin. There’s that odd feeling of reading a brand new crawl for the first time. There’s the opening shot — an iconic moment for any Star Wars film — and the story starts.

Darth Vader will stop at nothing to crush the rebels but his efforts to locate their new base have been in vain. Will the dark side of the Force guide him to the missing rebels and to young Skywalker or mire the dark lord in the conflicts of his past?

As the son of Rebel Alliance heroes Leia Organa and Han Solo, as well as Luke’s own nephew, Ben has the potential to be a great force for light in the galaxy. But the Skywalker legacy casts a long shadow, the currents of the dark side run deep, and Darth Vader’s blood runs in Ben’s veins. Voices call from both his past and his future, telling him who he must be. He will shatter, he will be reforged, his destiny will be revealed. Snoke awaits. The Knights of Ren await. Ben Solo’s path to his true self begins here.
