So many blockbusters and hit films came out in 2019 that I almost lost track. As this year draws to a close, I look at my picks for my ten favorite movies of 2019. Also, I noticed a lot of them came from Disney and that’s a little scary.
Dear JJ Abrams, I found your final battle in The Rise of Skywalker to be very dissappointing and not fitting for a grand finale. Here’s what I would have done.
Having gotten to see The Rise of Skywalker, what are my thoughts on this (apparent) end to the Skywalker Story? I am neither in the light nor the dark; I am in the Bendu, the Grey. In other words, meh.
After episodes of being hunted down by other bounty hunters, Karga reaches out to Mando with a peace offering: help get rid of the Stormtroopers, and they’ll be square. Since this is an obvious trap, Mando brings some backup.

I love the Jedi Order, but even I can acknowledge the fact that they were wrong about a lot of things. With the Rise of Skywalker hopefully heralding a new beginning for the Jedi, I call them out on some of their mistakes.
The lightsaber duels are always highlights of the Star Wars films, and here, I count down my best to worst of these iconic fights in the films.
Even though it’s been in four of the films and several books and shows, the Mandalorian chooses to go to Tatooine this week.

As the decade draws to a close, I list off all the movies that I loved over the past ten years. There A LOT of them!

When the Mandalorian tries to find refuge for Baby Yoda, he gets involved in an Old Western Stand-Off to save a village from raiders.
As the Skywalker Saga nears its end (for now) I attempt to defend the Star Wars Prequels and the good that came from them. And good DID come out of them. Even if Jar Jar was a mistake.

Ever since Disney bought Lucasfilms, and with it, Star Wars, I’ve kept a skeptical eye on where the company takes the franchise. Then they axed the Expanded Universe and thirty plus years of extra content that they’ve yet to make up for. They may have given us Thrawn back, but I won’t be satisfied until I see the return of Revan! However, I think Disney’s starting to step up, and a big example would be the new show, The Mandalorian.
