What’s Your Favorite Sequel Trilogy Official Poster?

Last week the official trailer and poster for The Rise of Skywalker arrived, dazzling Star Wars fans around the world due to its powerful theme of hope and the implications to what could be a mesmerizing saga finale. A little while ago I shared a post determining what your favorite Sequel Trilogy teaser poster was. Now, for this week’s Who’s Your Favorite? I thought it would be the perfect time to compare the official posters of the Sequel Trilogy. So, here the are.

The Force Awakens

This poster was designed to make Star Wars fans absolutely lose it with excitement and LucasFilm did a great job exceeding all of our expectations. Disney wanted to prove, in a very big way, that Star Wars was back and this poster illustrates that abundantly.

The design is so well made, from the color scheme to the poses of the actors this poster is very precise, highlighting every single element on this poster in a big way.

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. When one thinks of iconic vessels in science-fiction you may be easily drawn to say the Nostramo or the USS Enterprise but the Millennium Falcon will always be a part of that conversation because it is so iconic.

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’

Throwback Friday: I’m Convinced That Captain Phasma Isn’t Gone

This is hilarious! Looking back at this post that I wrote last April about Captain Phasma playing a role in The Rise of Skywalker is actually really funny. At the time, I was so heartbroken that Captain Phasma, one of the coolest characters to appear in this franchise, was gone that I refused to believe the obvious fact. Now, seventeen months later, looking back at this post is actually quite the comic relief. So, for this week’s Throwback Friday, here’s a look back at why I was so certain that Captain Phasma would play a role in The Rise of Skywalker. Enjoy!

The Force Awakens introduced some exciting new characters to the Star Wars universe and one of those incredible new additions was Captain Phasma. I remember seeing some concept art for The Force Awakens in the early months of 2014 and one of the most interesting pieces of art was the one that highlighted Phasma in concept form. It was literally one of the coolest things I had ever seen. Then, when I found out that this incredible new stormtrooper was a woman I was like, “WHAAAT!” She was so awesome!!! And then I watched The Force Awakens and I was like, “Huh?” There was so much hype surrounding that character and she ended up playing a ridiculously minor role that quite possibly didn’t need to be in the movie. She was simply eye candy for the film and a chance for Disney to say they introduced the first female villain to a Star Wars movie.

Comparing the ‘Star Wars’ Sequel Trilogy Teasers

After the D23 Special Look for The Rise of Skywalker I was so excited, I went back and watched the trailers for The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi and, of course, The Rise of

Skywalker in an expectedly awesome Star Wars trailer marathon. It was so much fun. So fun, in fact, that I wanted to write about it. So, with no further delay, here’s an analysis of the correlating Star Wars sequel trilogy teasers.

The Force Awakens

 

When this teaser came out for The Force Awakens we hadn’t seen anything related to Star Wars that was new since 2005’s Revenge of the Sith. In that ten-year span being a Star Wars fan was fun but all we had were the six George Lucas films, which were awesome, but old news.

Seeing this teaser, I can still feel the emotions I had while watching it for the first time, especially when seeing Kylo Ren for the first time with that amazing crossguard lightsaber.

This teaser was designed simply to display in a short amount of time, Star Wars is back! And the Millennium Falcon at the end is, of course, the icing on the cake.

As the logo displays itself in the classic yellow color the music is bright and adventurous. The teaser is designed to inspire pure elation and joy and even now, years after its release, it still manages to bring a smile to my face. Continue reading Comparing the ‘Star Wars’ Sequel Trilogy Teasers

Throwback Friday: My Awesome Magazine Collection

At the end of the year I will have to share my updated list of awesome magazines that I’ve collected but until then, take a look at these old magazines that are a part of my ever-growing collection. Enjoy!

I love collecting awesome Entertainment Weekly (and other) magazines that feature covers of my favorite upcoming movies. So, on that note, take a look back at these fascinating magazine covers.

My Marvel Movie Collection

Magazine1

These issues are all in alphabetical order and date back to December 2015. Can you believe that?! So many Marvel movies have come out in that time. You’ve got first looks at Captain America: Civil War and Doctor Strange. There’s Spider-Man and the Guardians of the Galaxy, Thor and Black Panther. Oh, let me tell you a little bit about my experience when I got the Thor: Ragnarok issue.

I had seen bits and pieces of Thor: Ragnarok concept art (only of Hela) in the movie news but I had no idea of the changes that would be made to the Asgardian God of Thunder. So imagine my surprise when I get my Entertainment Weekly that week and saw Thor with his short hairdo, wielding two swords, and flanked by these two AWESOME looking women. It was unlike anything I’d ever seen with Thor and I practically exploded with excitement. It was a great day.

To revisit these issues brings me so much joy as I think about the excitement I obtained with every collection.

So out of these eight marvelous covers I broke it down to the four I like the best. Here they are.
