Star Wars Age of Resistance Kylo Ren Review

This week I am reviewing another single issue in the Star Wars Age of Resistance maxiseries. Last week I reviewed the Rey comic issue. This time the character focus is on Kylo Ren – or Ben Solo if you see things from a certain point of view. I take everybody is familiar Ben became Kylo Ren. The story of Kylo Ren # 1 This comic issue is set some time before The Force Awakens. It is seen through veteran storm trooper commander Captain Ruthford – now a member of The First Order.

Star Wars Resistance Rey # 1 Review 4

Star Wars Resistance Rey # 1 Review

Since the summer Marvel has released single issue Star Wars comics under the Resistance maxiseries label. All of these issues are themed around a character from the sequel trilogy.

Rey is of course played by Daisy Ridley in the movies. Despite being the most important character of the sequel trilogy she has not appeared in many of the tie-in novels and comics. Until now with...

My thoughts on the Disney Star Wars Universe

There has been plenty of Star Wars news in the last few weeks. Mark Hamill announced he is done with Star Wars and Daisy Ridley admits Rey might come not be back after episode 9. Finally, Kathleen Kennedy has announced Michelle Rejwan will oversee the production of live-action Star Wars movies. To some the latter appears to be the first step in removing Kathleen all together.

One of those ‘let the Jedi solve it’ stories Master and Apprentice ostensibly is about a mission Jedi...

2019 Most Anticipated Sci-Fi Movies

2019 has finally started so comes the time to anticipate what the year might bring to the big screen. The first thing that is noticeable are the number of super-hero movies. Granted, that has been the case for nearly a decade. Yet, there is a noticeable drought of pure Science Fiction movies such as last year’s Annihilation and A Quiet Place. That doesn’t mean there aren’t any. Netflix movies and other lower-budget offerings are not as visible. Included on this list are a number of movies at risk of being a flop. The Terminator franchise has been pointless since Rise...
