Is Marvel Better than ‘Star Wars’?: Part 1

This is a question that has been plaguing me since Infinity War. It’s a question that I thought I would never ask myself but after years and years and years of consistently good-to-great content from the MCU it was a question I had to start honestly asking myself. But it’s a question I never answered…until now.

(This is a longread.)

Think about it. Star Wars has been wholly consistent over the past four decades.

The Three Greatest Millennium Falcon Action Scenes in ‘Star Wars’

The Millennium Falcon, it’s the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy. The ship that captivated the eyes of millions of viewers since 1977, the Millennium Falcon is a beloved vessel.

This year may be the last time we ever get to see this dazzling hunk of junk on the big screen, which is truly a depressing thought, but I’m sure J.J Abrams will deliver a fascinating action scene that’ll highlight the Millennium Falcon in the best way possible.

Today, I want to celebrate this incredible ship by highlighting its three best action scenes. Enjoy! Continue reading The Three Greatest Millennium Falcon Action Scenes in ‘Star Wars’

A few months ago I wrote a post sharing all of the Rotten Tomatoes scores of the Marvel movies at that time. Now I’ve decided to do the same for all ten Star Wars movies. Let’s see which movies prevail and which movies the critics deem the worst in the franchise. Enjoy!

Yep, The Rise of Skywalker sits at the bottom of this list and I’m not surprised. This movie had its exhilarating moments but it had plenty of horrible moments as well. Too many to count on two hands.

Audience Score: 86%

The audience liked it more than the critics did, obviously. I’m on the side of the critics. Continue reading These Are the Rotten Tomatoes scores for Every ‘Star Wars’ Movie: from Worst to Best
