The Ten Coolest Vehicles in ‘Star Wars’

So last year I wrote a post highlighting the coolest vehicles in Star Wars but after The Last Jedi it’s time to condense that list and add some new ships to the fray because one thing The Last Jedi definitely had were some amazing vehicles. I’m beyond excited to share with you my new list and I hope you enjoy. 🙂


10. Naboo Royal Cruiser


This is my favorite of the extremely elegant Naboo ships Ms. Amidala had throughout the prequels because it’s just so downright pretty. The beginning of Attack of the Clones has one of my favorite beginnings of all of the Star Wars films mainly because of this ship. Its four motors, the way it descends into the white clouds, it’s simply a gorgeous opening to the movie. Too bad the actual movie wasn’t that great.

9. Dreadnaught


One of the reasons why The Last Jedi is such a fantastic movie is because of the beginning. The movie literally opened with a space battle, a rather epic one at that, and in the middle of this exciting conflict was the Dreadnaught, a massive Star Destroyer with a pair of giant turbo laser guns bent on obliterating anything and everything. This is such an incredible ship and even though it only appeared in the movie briefly it definitely was cool enough to get on this list.

Luke Skywalker is the First True Jedi

One of the lines in Star Wars that has always confused me is something that Yoda told Luke once when he was training him on Dagobah in The Empire Strikes Back. Luke wanted to know how he could distinguish the good guys from the bad guys and Yoda told he would know if he was calm and at peace with himself. Then he said: “The Force is used for knowledge and defense. Never for attack.” Now, while this was an interesting idea that the Jedi supposedly believed in they didn’t exactly follow through with that concept with their actions. I mean think about it, for decades the Jedi used violence to try to keep “peace and order” in the galaxy but their ways only begot more war, more enemies, and more suffering. In The Clone Wars Obi-Wan’s old lady friend, Duchess Satine Kryze, confronted him with this truth.

Duchess Satine Kryze

Duchess Satine was the ruler of the once war-torn world of Mandalore and instead of joining either the Separatists or the Republic she decided to keep her world a neutral zone, for she wanted to keep her world out of the conflict and remain as a peaceful nation. On a diplomatic mission to Coruscant with Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker joining her for protection she told Obi-Wan how she felt about the Jedi’s ways.

The Jedi were supposedly the guardians of the galaxy (I’m not trying to actually reference Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.) The inhabitants of the universe looked up to the Jedi Order to save them from the Separatists but the Jedi didn’t even try to achieve peace by fighting war with harmless negotiating. They solved every problem, every crisis, with violence and Satine didn’t believe in that. In her eyes the Jedi were just robed hypocrites using their religion to belittle others and claim dominion over the weak while spouting “wisdom” about the Force and destiny to glorify their violent reasoning to save the galaxy.

The Jedi were so blinded by their own power that they didn’t even sense the ruler of the Republic (who was a Sith lord!) manipulating every event to his own eventual dominion because there was just no way the Jedi could be beaten.

So, long story short, the Jedi were nearly wiped from existence and Yoda and Obi-Wan went into exile, waiting for a new hope to restore order to the galaxy.

This Is The Funniest Thing I’ve Seen All Day

So I was just checking out to see what was new and as I scrolled down the home page I saw this two-minute long video displaying the LEGO version of The Last Jedi. Now, let me give you a brief history of my experience with legos. When I was younger I had a Wii and a few of my favorite games was LEGO The Lord of the Rings (fantastic game by the way,) LEGO Harry Potter Years 1-4, and LEGO Star Wars. These games made me love the LEGO version of some of my favorite movies. Then when I got an XBOX One I also ended up getting LEGO The Hobbit and LEGO The Force Awakens, both of which I enjoyed playing immensely. If there just so happened to be a LEGO The Last Jedi I would own it on the first day, that’s how fun and hilarious these games are.

So anyway, like I said before, I saw this two-minute video of the LEGO version of The Last Jedi and I just had to watch it. Check it out:

This is literally one of the funniest things I have ever seen. It’s the entire story of the original trilogy plus The Force Awakens plus The Last Jedi all within two minutes and it’s just absurdly perfect and comedic. I love legos, I loved The Lego Movie when it came out four years ago (I actually own it,) I love seeing these characters I know so well depicted as LEGO toys, and the child narrating the short film only made it funnier.

I love hilarious stuff and you can’t go wrong with legos. I hope this made you laugh as much as it made me laugh and I thank you for reading. Have a beautiful day and May the LEGOs (hee-hee) be with you.

‘Jumanji: Welcome To the Jungle’ Is the Surprise Hit I Wasn’t Expecting

So last December Jumanji: Welcome To the Jungle came out I think a week after The Last Jedi and even though it had some pretty stiff competition against the Star Wars it did a very decent job at the box-office, officially making roughly $900 million in its box-office run (*jaw dropped*) which is very impressive indeed. But even though it had such a great run at the movie theaters I wasn’t totally convinced that this movie would be good or not. Rotten Tomatoes gave it a menial score of 76% and the commercials I saw made this film look like something I wouldn’t want to watch. And then in the past week I kept seeing commercials boasting that Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was still in theaters and coming out on digital at the same time. That was the moment when I thought to myself, “Maybe this movie is actually good?”

So, yesterday I rented the movie and low and behold it was FANTASTIC! There’s not a lot of times when I watch a comedy and it’s actually really good but this was one of those rare surprises that reminds me why I love movies so much. The story was refreshingly simple; a group of high school students stuck in detention ended up sucked into a game called Jumanji and they had to, of course, finish the game in order to escape and return to their regular lives. In Jumanji, however, they were transformed into the game characters they chose which was absolutely hilarious and led to some very great character interaction that had me laughing non-stop.


Spencer, the nerd boy, was Dr. Bravestone, a.k.a Dwayne Johnson. The football player, Fridge, was Kevin Hart, a zoologist. The nerd girl was Karen Gillan’s character, the Killer of Men (ha-ha!) And the pretty, popular girl, Bethany, was Jack Black (which was even funnier.) This combo of actors was perfect for the film and they made the movie so enjoyable from beginning to end.

If you’re a gamer (which I am) this movie is even funnier because it really does strike the imagination of what it would be like if you were stuck in a game. And it conveyed to me how much I wouldn’t want to be trapped in a game. Jeez.

To my great surprise there was nothing in the movie that I didn’t enjoy.  I mean this film was laugh-out-loud funny throughout the entire film and the story never let up or got corny. And, I have to admit, I did get a little emotional from this movie as well. I held back the tears because I didn’t want to embarrass myself by crying at Jumanji but it definitely touched my heartstrings at a certain point in the movie.

My Conclusion of the Film


I’m glad to say this movie got a grip on me on early on into the film and it didn’t let go. It was impeccably written, perfectly cast, the action was exciting, the situations were riveting, the movie was funny, and like I said before, the film definitely plucked at my heartstrings I’d say a couple of times.

I will give this film a 95 out of a 100 and 4.5 out of 5 stars. While it is one of the better comedies I’ve seen in a long while it definitely isn’t the best movie I’ve ever seen and that’s the only reason why I didn’t give it a 100 or 5 stars. But, if you haven’t seen this movie or you’re a little curious about it like I was I highly recommend that you watch it. It’s the perfect film to watch if you’re bored and you need a light movie to brighten your day.

I thank you for reading my review and I hope you have a wonderful day.

The Five Best Scenes of ‘The Last Jedi’

Okay, so I’ve just recently owned The Last Jedi and after seeing the movie eight times now I am more blown away by the film than I was after I went to see it in the movie theaters all those months ago. The story is impeccably designed, the character development is riveting, the cinematography is beautiful, the action is phenomenal, and overall it’s undoubtedly, to me, the best Star Wars movie ever made. It even surpasses the genius of The Empire Strikes Back which is now boring in comparison. The only setback of this movie being so entertaining is I don’t know how I’m going to discern my five favorite scenes from the movie because there are so many fantastic scenes it feels unfair to leave some parts out but I’m going to try my best. Enjoy!

1. Force-Skype Is Turned On


One of the most riveting scenes in The Last Jedi is that first Force connection between Rey and Kylo Ren. Rey is pleasant as she wakes up from a deep slumber, the training that she had been waiting for about to begin, and Kylo Ren is also in a calm state as he gets his scar tended to. And then they slowly realize, to each of their horror, that they can see each other. That silent moment when they just stare at each other in disbelief is such a quiet, intense moment.

And then as they speak to each other their conversation is just as riveting. Especially when Luke appears and Kylo knows Rey is with him just by the fear on her face. That’s such an amazing part to me and it only was a precursor for more epic scenes to come.

2. Rey and the Lightsaber


For so many months I saw clips of this scene over and over again through commercials and trailers and I thought when I would see it in the movie it wouldn’t be that great. Well, that was delightfully wrong. This scene has become so magical to me. Maybe it’s Rey’s theme music, maybe it’s just the choreography of the lightsaber sparring, or maybe it’s because this is just a great scene period but I have come to enjoy this part of the movie immensely. And I love that this scene provided a little bit of humor as the cut rock crashed into the Caretakers’ cart on the road below. It’s a funny interaction between Rey and the alien nuns and it helps make that part that much better.

Leia’s Greatest Moments

Princess Leia is one of my favorite heroines because throughout the films she’s graced she never faltered from being awesome. She was tough, she was heroic, and she was never a damsel in distress. That’s my type of princess right there. And even in the latest installment, The Last Jedi, she was still a boss. That’s pretty awesome! I am so excited to share with you the moments that, to me, have made her the coolest princess in entertainment. Enjoy!

1. Standing Up To Darth Vader

When Princess Leia first appeared in A New Hope she wasn’t your typical leading lady. She wasn’t hiding on the ship with wide eyes and shaky breaths as the stormtroopers pillaged the ship for the Death Star plans, praying that she wouldn’t get caught. She was creeping around the Tantative IV with a blaster in hand ready to fight. And even though she got captured did she shrink under the dark gaze of Darth Vader? No. She was the shortest person in the room and yet her bold, confident presence was larger than life. She talked down to Darth Vader as if he was a child, berating him for interrupting her “diplomatic” mission and glaring at him with pure annoyance. Darth Vader was so taken aback by her attitude that all he could do her was talk angrily against her and point his finger in her face and she still didn’t bat an eye.

2. Down Talking Tarkin

Destruction of Alderaan

Another Imperial mogul that Leia wasn’t afraid of in the slightest was Grand Moff Tarkin. This has always been one of my favorite moments from Leia because of the fact that she called Tarkin stinky. Hah, hilarious. She did not care did she?

The Five Best Scenes of ‘The Force Awakens’

The Force Awakens was the Star Wars movie I had been waiting for since I was a child. I enjoyed the prequel trilogy (mainly because they were the first Star Wars movies I’ve ever seen) and the original trilogy was of course a major Star Wars treat but I wanted more. I wanted characters I could really get behind and cheer for, stories that I could truly enjoy and remember because I was old enough to experience a new Star Wars movie in all of its glory. The Force Awakens was that movie. I went and watched it five times at the movies because it was that special to me and I’ve seen it, I’d say, over a hundred times since. So I can’t express to you how excited I am to share with you my five favorite scenes from this movie. Enjoy!

1. The Millenium Falcon Chase


This is one of the most exciting scenes in The Force Awakens for a couple of reasons. One, it’s the first time I got to see Rey pilot a ship and she flew the Millenium Falcon so well it was like she was born to fly. So that was exciting. Two, it’s just a fascinating action scene. The TIE fighters chasing the Millenium Falcon through the Jakku ship graveyard is one of the most awesome scenes in Star Wars and the way it ends with Rey flipping the ship, Finn shooting the oncoming TIE fighter, and them shooting off into space is one of the more perfect endings to an action scene in Star Wars.

2. Rey’s Vision


For two years straight I was trying to figure out what this scene was trying to say with all of its hidden references and cryptic meanings. After The Last Jedi this vision has become obsolete in the realm of theorizing but it’s still one of my favorite scenes from The Force Awakens.
