The Mandalorian – A New Hope

Disney+ has only launched in a few countries thus far, but those that still have to wait for it have something to look forward to. The Mandalorian is both Disney’s first Direct-to-Streaming and live-action Star Wars television series and it delivers. At the time of writing, I was able to see the first four episodes…

Rogue One – The only Rogue Story

I saw Rogue One when it hit theaters, but did not feel like giving it a full blown review then, as I was very conflicted. People seemed to really like it and I wanted to like it, but the truth is, I didn’t. Don’t get me wrong, Rogue One is still one of the best…

SOLO – Yet Another Star Wars Story…

I skipped SOLO in theatres, as I was not the least bit interested in seeing it, but I recently caught it at a friend’s place, who had bought the digital version of the film, so I am ending up reviewing it after all. Right of the back, I want to mention that SOLO did not…

Avengers: Infinity War (2018) – “Oh, God!”

I will start with a very quick, spolier free review of Avengers: Infinity War and then immediately launch into a detailed analysis of the film as there is really so much to dig into. So first of all, you really have to see this film. But you probably shouldn’t see it if you are unfamiliar…

Black Panther (2018) – Just another MCU film?

Black Panther (2018) is a solid addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe with an important message for us voters and our political leaders. Black Panther delivers another origin story that is not an origin story, much like Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017). In a world filled with superhero films, you would think we would finally get sick…

Star Wars: The Clone Wars & Rebels – The Animated Universe

Star Wars Rebels has just concluded its fourth and final season and it went out with a bang. I want to take some time to reflect on Dave Filoni’s animated Star Wars universe and what it means to fans. Star Wars was never particularly good in the animated department. It’s first two productions were Droids…

Tomorrowland (2015) – A Reflection of Today

Tomorrowland (2015) is filled with amazing actors known from both the small and the big screen, though few get a lot of screentime. Even George Clooney who starts the film by addressing the audience with an ominous and cryptic message only returns to the screen halfway through the film. The viewer spends most time with…

How Disney’s Approach to Star Wars is Different

Before we get into the actual story differences Disney’s Lucasfilm brings to the table, it is important to define what the new Star Wars saga is. It is not, as many people believe, a continuation of the previous saga, it is a retelling. But it is not a remake. A remake would mean new sets,…

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Review

The Force Awakens has met all my expectations and confirmed all my fears. Before I continue with my (hopefully) SPOILER-free review, let me give you my verdict: Must See. I will begin with the visual presentation of the film. J. J. Abrams delivers with a stunning world of both props and CGI. The lightsabres’ reflections…
