Movie Reviews from an avid movie-goer

Star Wars

In anticipation of the release of Episode VIII: The Last Jedi, I’ve decided to review all of the movies in the Star Wars franchise in chronological order, starting with Episode I. I will be releasing one Star Wars movie review per day starting today, December 7, 2017 until we reach the day that Star Wars – Episode VIII: The Last Jedi is officially released to the world on December 15, 2017. In all of the reviews, I will put the source for the pictures and the trailers as Lucasfilm Ltd, as that’s the only constant production company throughout the franchise, from 20th Century Fox, to now Walt Disney Corporation.

I’ve decided to write these reviews well in advance this time, as I did not plan ahead for when I did the MCU reviews, once a day leading up to Thor: Ragnarok. In the past, I’ve just wrote the reviews over a one or two day period, however with the Star Wars reviews, I’ve decided to write them ahead of time, so that I can have more time, and not feel rushed.

The Star Wars franchise is my second favourite franchise behind only the Middle Earth Franchise (Hobbit + The Lord of the Rings). As such, I doubt that I will be able to be be overtly critical of the movies, but I will do my best anyway, because no movie is perfect, and they all have flaws. All of the reviews for the Star Wars franchise will be full of spoilers, with the one for The Last Jedi being the first movie that I will write two reviews for, the Non – Spoiler version, and the Spoiler filled one that will be released on the following Monday after the initial release.
