Solo: A Star Wars Story just recently came out on Blu-Ray and that means it’s available to watch whenever I may please. It’s a great film too. It’s a riveting adventure from beginning to end and truly captures the essence of what Star Wars films are all about. But what makes it such a fun installment to Star Wars? The film’s various scenes of course. From beginning to end this movie deals out incredible moments that will bring a smile to any casual Star Wars movie watcher’s face. So, on this week’s segment of Who’s Your Favorite, I’m asking you what your favorite scene in Solo is? Here are the film’s most important moments.
The Corellia Speeder Chase
The film doesn’t waste time getting to the action and the speeder chase that takes place as Han and Qi’ra strive to escape Corellia is beyond awesome. It features Han’s incredible piloting skills before he got his hands behind the controls of a ship complimented with an upbeat musical score that made the scene even more riveting.

Obi-Wan Kenobi is one of the most beloved Star Wars characters for one simple reason; he’s awesome. He wowed fans when he was introduced as the Star Wars version of the Wizard Merlin in A New Hope. And he was easily the coolest character in the often harangued prequel trilogy. So, on this week’s segment of Who’s Your Favorite I’m tackling one of the greatest Jedi that has ever lived; Obi-Wan Kenobi. Enjoy!
Classic Obi-Wan Kenobi
Obi-Wan Kenobi might’ve died in A New Hope but he lived on in ghost form throughout the classic trilogy, randomly delivering Luke wisdom and being awesome. One of my favorite scenes in The Empire Strikes Back is when Obi-Wan Kenobi visits Luke in Hoth. It’s the first time we see Obi-Wan in physical ghost form and it’s always fascinated me seeing him standing in the snowy gloom telling Luke to go to the Dagobah system. Old Obi-Wan is awesome.

Wow, this week has gone by fast and that only means it’s time for another segment of Who’s Your Favorite? And this week it’s a fun topic in the form of Star Wars bands. Star Wars bands aren’t popular to a casual Star Wars viewer but to us fans the bands are some of the coolest characters to appear in the franchise. They provide galactic beats that are either hilarious, iconic, or downright cool. And that’s why I’m here to ask which Star Wars bands happens to be your favorite? Here they are.

Another glorious week has passed and it has definitely been an exciting week for Star Wars fans. The Clone Wars cartoon was announced to be getting a final season which will debut on Disney’s new streaming service and the official cast announcement for Episode IX was released on Friday. So, in the spirit of Star Wars, this week’s segment is focused on, well, Star Wars characters of the current trilogy. Who’s your favorite of the new troupe? Here are the characters.
Until Finn there had never been a story about a stormtrooper-turned-rebel fighter and that’s why Finn is so great. He’s a special man and on top of that he is as heroic as they come. He didn’t have to turn against the First Order but he did because he knew the First Order was wrong in what they were doing. He didn’t have to save Poe but he did (mainly because he needed a pilot’s help.) He didn’t have to save Rey from getting killed by the stormtroopers on Jakku but he did because he’s a good man.
I could keep going on and on about his heroics but you get the point. All of the heroic things he did he didn’t have to do. He could’ve remained a mindless stormtrooper who does what he’s told despite the obvious fact that he would be doing wrong or he could make a difference and defy those who wanted him to kill innocents without mercy. I’m glad he took the latter. (Finn’s great.) 🙂

Princess/General Leia and Rey are two of the most important heroines in cinema history. Each character was a groundbreaking development for the portrayal of women in Star Wars and have paved their own legacies through this wonderful franchise. Now as one character’s story continues and another’s has fallen their inspiring paths are all the more brilliant to observe, especially when the two strong women are in the same presence as one another. But of the two who is the greater heroine?
Each of these characters has inspired girls and women around the globe by showing how powerful a woman can be through young and old age. It seems unthinkable to distinguish one above the other but they do have their differences. Their strengths and weaknesses are the things that we individually identify with the most. So, on this segment of Who’s Your Favorite, I am celebrating the heroines that have brought much happiness to so many people around the world. Enjoy!

Every week I present a new segment of Who’s Your Favorite this or that but this week I’m changing it up a bit and today I’m asking you which Star Wars movie is your favorite? Star Wars is a tough topic, especially when you get into the conversation of which film in the franchise is your favorite because they’re all so good. It’s also a fun topic to broach as well, as it sparks debates and connects Star Wars fans around the world. So, out of all of the Star Wars movies, what is your favorite of the franchise? Here they all are.
1. The Phantom Menace
The Phantom Menace was the first of the prequels and while its arrival had Star Wars fans riled up its actual quality quickly turned those same fans against the movie within no time. Now The Phantom Menace is considered one of the worst entries in the franchise but it has its shining moments as well; the podrace sequence, Darth Maul, Qui-Gon Jinn, etc. It might not be the greatest movie ever made but it’s still Star Wars and that’s always awesome.
2. Attack of the Clones
Attack of the Clones is the second entry in the prequel trilogy and instead of building up a compelling foundation for the trilogy it is viewed, to most fans, as easily the worst or second to worst Star Wars film. But, like The Phantom Menace, it’s got its bright spots as Ewan Mcgregor shines as Obi-Wan Kenobi and makes the film worth watching.

Star Wars is heavily wrapped around the basis of family and it’s Father’s Day! Last month I wrote a post celebrating the mothers of Star Wars and on this weekly series of Who’s Your Favorite I’m asking you, my fellow Star Wars fans, who’s your favorite Star Wars father? Here is my list of the galactic dads of the franchise.
Galen Erso is one of the secret heroes in the Star Wars universe as he purposely sabotaged the Death Star to eventually get blown up. He risked his life creating the diabolical plan and had to sacrifice so much to get it done. While he isn’t on the poster of Rogue One he was easily one of the film’s biggest contributors.
Darth Vader just might be one of the most iconic movie fathers of all time. He may have played the part of the villain for the majority of the original trilogy but through all of those wires and that cold exterior was a heart of gold that couldn’t be denied. He helped end the reign of the Empire as he killed Palpatine and even though he died he perished doing what was right and that is why he’s such a great character.
