The New York Times Has a Post Every ‘Star Wars’ Fan Should Read

The New York Times has some of my favorite movie reviews out there and so it was no time before I hurried to their site to see what they had to say about the latest Star Wars film. But along the way, I ran into this: ‘Star Wars’ Episodes I-IX, as New York Critics Saw Them.

Um…awesome! I had to read it. And it was nothing short of fascinating. Star Wars from the view of a New York Times Critic is something else. There are movies that are viewed with joy and love and others that considered with downright disgust. I urge to you read this post because it truly is a delight.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day. May the Force be with you.

Before the Great Hall, the whole of New Asgard’s population stood, awaiting their first female King in their people’s history. Valkyrie stood inside the Great Hall, her heart pounding in her breast as she prepared for the first time to stand before her fellow Asgardians as their official ruler.
