‘Star Wars Celebration 2017: Day One’ Reaction – Dagobah Day #31

Like millions of others around the world, my Star Wars Celebration 2017 is spent at home. I spent the entire day watching the official Star Wars live stream, and while we don’t always get to see everything, I thought that what we got here was absolutely terrific.

Now, in this little reaction post, I’ll be discussing some of the news that got out of day one of Star Wars Celebration 2017, as well as some of the panels that I was able to see — starting with the 40 Years of Star Wars-panel!

Top 10 Best Moments in The Force Awakens – Dagobah Day #29

best-moments-tfa

Last year, I made two lists about the two first Star Wars trilogies. The list for the Prequel Trilogy was rather difficult to put together, while the list for the Original Trilogy was much more fun to do. I’ve previously promised to return to The Force Awakens (which I’ve seen 14 or 15 times by now) and, finally, make a ‘Top 10 Best Moments in The Force Awakens‘ list. Today I’m finally ready to reveal the list. Let’s get to it. Continue reading “Top 10 Best Moments in The Force Awakens – Dagobah Day #29”

It’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday. I’m still getting through the best heroes of this decade, and we’ve reached 2015. Do note that these characters aren’t solely ranked on how heroic their actions are. Also, some heroes may not be traditional heroes. In fact, this list includes groups of heroes too. Without further ado, here are the top ten movie heroes of 2015.

Slow News Day – Dagobah Day #28

dago-feb-2017

So, yeah, I had hoped to write about a teaser trailer for The Last Jedi today, but no such trailer was released during Super Bowl sunday. Therefore I actually don’t have a lot to talk about today. There isn’t really a pressing news story that needs to be addressed. So, instead, I’ll give you an update on Dagobah Day and the Star Wars coverage on the blog.

Without further ado, here are the top ten movie villains of 2015.

The Force Awakens Blu-Ray Review – Dagobah Day #13

Dagobah Day - 2016

Sometime during April there’s a good chance you picked up Star Wars: The Force Awakens on Blu-Ray or Digital HD (or both, if you’re me). I know that it released in the beginning of April in the U.S., but I know that people in other territories had to wait a few more weeks to get their hands on Episode VII. So, today I thought I would talk about the Blu-Ray: talk about what is great, what isn’t so great, and what is missing on the Blu-Ray.

‘The Next Spielberg’ – Motion Picture Thoughts #8

MOTION PICTURE THOUGHTS

Every means of entertainment has a couple of greats. The next Michael Jordan – the next Elvis Presley – the next Lionel Messi. I’m sure there are a number of ‘nexts’ you can come up with at the drop of a hat. Today, I want to discuss the label ‘the next Spielberg’, which I’ve seen thrown around a lot. Some times it’s gift, and some times it turns out to be a curse. What is in the Spielberg-name? What does it mean to be the next Spielberg? And… Well, who is the next Spielberg?  Continue reading “‘The Next Spielberg’ – Motion Picture Thoughts #8”

We Need To Talk About Kylo – Dagobah Day #10

Dagobah Day - 2016

Attention: the following post contains spoilers for Star Wars: The Force Awakens!

I’ve spoken to numerous people about the newest villains in the Star Wars saga, and what has become abundantly clear is that I don’t see eye to eye with a lot of the people criticizing the character of Kylo Ren. I’ve found myself defending his character, his development, his design, and the like on multiple occasions. I’m getting really tired of seeing people misinterpreting the greatness of Kylo Ren, so this month’s Dagobah Day is all about Kylo! Continue reading “We Need To Talk About Kylo – Dagobah Day #10”

88TH ACADEMY AWARDS: REACTION – MOTION PICTURE THOUGHTS #7

MOTION PICTURE THOUGHTS

Leonardo DiCaprio – Academy Award-Winning Actor! Finally! The 88th Academy Awards was a great show, with a lot of great winners. Chris Rock was a really solid host, and, as a whole, it probably was one of the better Oscar shows in recent memory. Continue reading “88TH ACADEMY AWARDS: REACTION – MOTION PICTURE THOUGHTS #7”

88th Academy Awards: Predictions – Motion Picture Thoughts #6

MOTION PICTURE THOUGHTS

I love the Academy Awards. There’s just something special about that show, even if I don’t think they pick the right winners each and every year. Often times I find myself agreeing with the nominees for the BAFTAs instead, but only the Academy Awards can make me straight-up giddy to see accolades being handed out. Today I’m trying to predict the winners of each and every category! Continue reading “88th Academy Awards: Predictions – Motion Picture Thoughts #6”
