As I'm prone to do, today's post is all about a bit of sci-fi. Got some things to discuss, you see. I'll start with the return of Star Trek: Discovery. As I did with the first half of the season, I'll do a big assessment blog when the rest of the season has aired, giving … Continue reading Some Trek, Some Wars
I came across this little parody tune, thought I'd share. Thanks to OverEnglishMan for posting it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pORNNBE4YVE I don't know if the spirit of intent was call this out or not, but now I see the parallels between Moana and the Rey / Luke storyline in TLJ. Kind of surprised I didn't catch that before now.
I know, I know… Why is there a 3rd review of The Last Jedi on here? What is it that Troy’s ol’ pal Big Dog could possibly say that he already didn’t? Honestly, I don’t know. So let’s go on with what I do know, shall we? Oh, and there will be SPOILERS!!! Just so … Continue reading Star Wars: The Last Jedi — Big Dog’s Review
Although this site was new-ish last year, I still did a year in review post. Having survived another year, I thought it only appropriate to do it again. Only this time, you'll forgive me if I don't bother hunting down all the links. This site has a search function, and everything's tagged, so if you … Continue reading 2017: In Review
As with my first reactions post, this entry will be filled with spoilers. It can't be any other way. All I can say is that the film is divisive among fans in the extreme, perhaps as much or more so than the prequels. It also raised some highly complex thoughts and emotions within me, so … Continue reading Star Wars: The Last Jedi – Second Thoughts
Opening weekend has come and gone, and it's officially the most divisive Star Wars movie in the franchise. Even so, say what you will, there's no denying The Last Jedi has some incredible visuals as a proper Star Wars film should. And as we all know, nothing comes out of thin air. From script to … Continue reading The Art of Star Wars: The Last Jedi by Phil Szostak
Warning: there will be spoilers here while I gush. Also, if you know anything about me at all, you know to settle in for a long one. This is Star Wars; I'll have a lot to say. If you care to read on, this post will continue after this graphic of the film's logo. So … Continue reading Star Wars: The Last Jedi – First Reactions
Just a little public service announcement, just in case... The media review embargo for Star Wars: The Last Jedi ended over the weekend. Most of the reviews out there are spoiler-free, and the early buzz is promising. The standard hyperbole is "the best one since Empire." We can only hope that's true. We'll know for … Continue reading Beware of Spoilers
Lock s-foils in attack position. The mid-season finale of Rebels has arrived, and we've got X-WINGS!!! I'm so freaking happy about this. Can you tell I'm happy about this? It's not like we've never seen X-Wings before, but we've not seen them on Rebels until this point. For me, the last aesthetic pieces of the … Continue reading Star Wars: Rebels – “Rebel Assault”
What's down the road for the Galaxy Far, Far Away? I think we knew the anthology films would continue. After Rogue One, Kathleen Kennedy said that's where the future lies. But both Lucasfilm and Disney had their sights on more. There were always rumors. Now we have confirmation. Rian Johnson, who is helming The Last … Continue reading More Star Wars. So Much Star Wars.
