Throwback Friday: My Review of ‘The Last Jedi’ Novel

This has become quite the eventful Friday. The highly anticipated trailer for Avengers: Endgame just dropped. I’m still trying process the fact that I’ve seen actual, legitimate footage from Avengers: Endgame which is SO awesome. I’m also trying to calm down after seeing Ronin who looked so ridiculously cool that I’m still hyperventilating. But, I must stick to the normalcy of the week and share with you all a Throwback Friday post.

This week I’m revisiting my review of The Last Jedi novel which is such an amazing book. I hope you enjoy. 🙂

Finn and Rose

really loved the dynamic between Finn and Rose in the novel. In the movie, it doesn’t ever delve deep into the details of their evolving relationship but after reading the book I have a completely different view on not only their companionship in the film but on Rose as a character as well. For a great deal of the novel, we see her annoyance with Finn. She didn’t like his constant harping on Rey and she was peeved by his naivety. As much as he got on nerves, however, she gradually began to realize how good a man he really was. It was almost, to her, strange to see a man who was once a stormtrooper have such an innocence about him and his kind heart is what led to her liking him…a lot.

By the time she saved him from sacrificing himself on the salt plains of Crait you realize just how much she actually loves him and it’s really sweet. I already liked Rose before but now I really like her thanks to the novel.

Darth Vader or Kylo Ren: Who’s Your Favorite?

It’s Sunday and that means it’s time for another weekly segment of Who’s Your Favorite? Last week’s segment was a fun one as I asked all of you who your favorite Justice League hero is? This week I’m heading back to a galaxy far, far away and giving you another fun topic; Darth Vader versus Kylo Ren. Both of these characters have delighted us, scared us, and provided their respective trilogies complex and engaging storylines that keep us coming back for more. And that’s why I made them the topic of this week’s segment. Enjoy!

Darth Vader

Darth Vader has had quite the journey. As a young man, he was an accomplished Jedi Knight who was believed to be the Chosen One who would bring peace back to the galaxy. But Palpatine had another plan in mind.

He used Anakin’s deepest, darkest fears against him and turned him into the heavy-breathing, lightsaber-wielding, masked-cyborg, Darth Vader.

A Fun Twitter Poll About Rey

A couple of days ago I tweeted a fun twitter poll about one of Star Wars‘ greatest new characters; Rey and to my great surprise it got a lot more traction than I expected. It was a day-long poll so it’s over with but what was so incredible about the poll were the results. And so, I wanted to share those results with you all because it’s just fun.

So as you can see from this tweet I asked everyone in which film did they prefer Rey and look at those numbers! The Force Awakens just barely managed to edge out The Last Jedi. Isn’t that awesome?

A lot of times I say that Star Wars fans are divided about these current trilogy movies straight down the middle but there is never an actual statistic to back that claim but this proves that point immensely.

I was so fascinated by the results of this poll that I felt that I had to share it with you all and I hope you enjoyed. Next week I will introduce another Star Wars but this time I’ll make sure to write a post about it that day so you all can get in on the action as well. 🙂

If you were to choose which movie you thought Rey was the coolest which movie would you pick? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.

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

(And by the way, I pick Rey from The Last Jedi.) 🙂

‘The Force Awakens’ or ‘The Last Jedi’: Which Outfit Was Better?

With every installment in a Star Wars trilogy, it is safe to assume that the major characters’ wardrobe will change which is always one of the exciting factors of a new Star Wars movie. The major characters presented in The Force Awakens were incredible heroes and villains with their own sense of style and that style stretched onward into The Last Jedi as each character obtained a new outfit. Some looks were better than others but I’m here today to compare those looks with you all. Enjoy!

Poe Dameron

Poe Dameron doesn’t have the flashiest outfits that have ever been seen in Star Wars because the Resistance is, in essence, a ragtag band of rebels who refuse to let the First Order take over the galaxy. HIs clothing represents that rugged quality of the Resistance.

In The Force Awakens, he had a look perfect for that of somebody visiting the sweltering Jakku; his specially made jacket that’s basically a casual suit of armor, the open-necked shirt for temperature control, and then he’s got his regular pair of pants and boots.

In The Last Jedi, his look was a tad bit more conservative and officer-like. His new jacket, a dark blue one with the Resistance symbol on the shoulder screams rebel fighter, his newest shirt is fashioned more for outer space with the lack of the open neck look, and his pants’ color matches the jacket.

I love both of these looks. They’re simple yet perfectly match Poe Dameron. But I think I would have to say…I like The Last Jedi look a tad bit more.

Luke Skywalker: Blue Milk to Green Milk?

Luke Skywalker has been heroic, made mistakes, fought and redeemed Darth Vader, but something else that he has become kind of famous for (among Star Wars fans) is his affiliation with oddly colored milk.

In A New Hope we see Luke Skywalker speaking with his uncle and aunt at dinnertime and that’s when we were first introduced to the infamous Blue Milk. Blue Milk is one of the most fascinating beverages in Star Wars. I’ve always wanted to know what it tasted like because it has always looked so delightfully delicious.

And so forty years later Rian Johnson brought milk and Luke Skywalker back together by having the legendary hermit milk a Thala-Siren (that’s the yucky looking tentacle monster) and drink its milk all disgustingly.

It’s an interesting homage to something that has no important implications but has delighted fans throughout the years regardless. Just like the Golden Dice that before The Last Jedi seemed like just an ordinary pair of die but now have become an important staple to Han Solo’s story.

Blue milk, green milk, whichever milk you like, now that we’ve had two colors of the iconic Star Wars beverage will we possibly get another colored milk in the future? How about purple milk? That could be interesting.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day. May the Force (and the Blue Milk) be with you.

My Newest Ranking of the ‘Star Wars’ Movies

Every once in a while there comes a time when one must update their standing on how the Star Wars movies should be ranked, for as months go by new revelations come to light and that can move a film from first to fifth place in a blink of an eye.

Well, recently I participated, for the first time, in watching a Star Wars marathon using the Machete Order which means you watch the films in this order: SoloRogue OneA New HopeThe Empire Strikes BackThe Phantom MenaceAttack of the ClonesRevenge of the SithReturn of the JediThe Force Awakens, and The Last Jedi.

After finishing that adventurous marathon experience I learned a lot about Star Wars and how beautifully and deeply interconnected the films’ stories truly are. I was struck with revelation after revelation and I soon realized that it was time to update my ranking of these movies. Hence, this post. I hope you enjoy.

10. Attack of the Clones

Attack of the Clones is still hands down the worst Star Wars movie.

Which Place Is Nicer: Canto Bight or Dryden’s Yacht?

The last two Star Wars films have featured gorgeous locations that feature fancily dressed characters and fascinating aliens. But, between Canto Bight and Dryden’s yacht, First Light, which one would I rather go to on a 5-star Star Wars vacation?

Canto Casino

Canto Bight is a place of beauty and sheer fun. There’s a giant casino, spas, restaurants, it’s basically the nicest place to be in Star Wars. And while it is a very fancy place it wasn’t as amazing as I had expected it to be. It was a beautiful location, there’s no doubt about that, but nothing about Canto Bight really piqued my imagination in the way that I thought it would.

Now, First Light is gorgeous. The golden colors, the strange looking windows, I’ve never seen a yacht in Star Wars before but it’s kind of amazing.

I’m undoubtedly a fan of First Light way more than a fan of Canto Bight. Maybe that’s because the scenes featuring Canto Bight but it just never hit my wow button even though I thought it would.

Which fancy location do you like more; Canto Bight or First Light? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.

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