‘Star Wars: Resistance’ Delivers an Even Better Second Episode

Last week’s first episode of the second season, Into the Unknown, was a suspenseful, riveting blast. This week’s episode, A Quick Salvage Run, was even better.

Coinciding with the events of The Last Jedi, this episode ups the action and the suspense as the heroes come face to face with the First Order for the first time this season. I found myself unable to tear my eyes from the screen from the level of enjoyment this particular episode provided.

What I found the most exhilarating was the different point of view the episode relayed of the First Order attack on D’Qar in The Last Jedi. We got to see it from Kaz and the crew’s view and it was definitely an interesting perspective.

With our heroes finding themselves in quite the precarious situation moving into next week’s episode I can’t help wondering how this season will play out and what surprises could be up Dave Filoni’s sleeve for this second season.

I’m rating this episode 97 out of 100 and 5/5 stars. It was legitimately entertaining.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a beautiful day. May the Force be with you.

Throwback Friday: The Five Best Scenes of ‘The Last Jedi’

The new trailer for The Rise of Skywalker is almost upon us. Like with all new movies, there’s a time when we don’t know what’s going to happen in the film or what to expect. And then, months after seeing the movie for the first time, we get the chance to watch it over and over again and the memories of mystery surrounding the film are gone.

Here’s a look back at a post I wrote after just buying The Last Jedi on Blu-Ray early last year. Enjoy!

Okay, so I’ve just recently owned The Last Jedi and after seeing the movie eight times now I am more blown away by the film than I was after I went to see it in the movie theaters all those months ago. The story is impeccably designed, the character development is riveting, the cinematography is beautiful, the action is phenomenal, and overall it’s undoubtedly, to me, the best Star Wars movie ever made. It even surpasses the genius of The Empire Strikes Back which is now boring in comparison.

(Present day: Too bad this elation dissipated. Rogue One has returned to being my favorite Star Wars film and The Empire Strikes Back has reclaimed its title as my 2nd favorite film in the franchise. I now have The Last Jedi sitting in 4th place just behind The Force Awakens, which is still pretty good.)

The only setback of this movie’s entertaining quality is the difficulty I’m going to have a hard time discerning my five favorite scenes from the movie because there are so many fantastic scenes it feels unfair to leave some parts out but I’m going to try my best.

A Tantalizing Preview for Resistance Reborn Reveals a Very Blatant Fact for Rey

Before The Mandalorian, before Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, before the biggest event of the year for Star Wars fans, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, we have Resistance Reborn, a novel set shortly after the events of The Last Jedi, featuring General Organa, Rey, Poe, and Finn in an adventure to restore the Resistance to glory before the events of The Rise of Skywalker. It’s a must-have prequel to the movie Star Wars fans are counting down the days for and yesterday an exclusive excerpt was dropped on starwars.com to get us pumped for the novel.

Of course, I read it, and it was expectedly thrilling but there was something very blatant that I gleaned from a certain section of the excerpt that caught my very rigid attention. Here it is. Continue reading A Tantalizing Preview for Resistance Reborn Reveals a Very Blatant Fact for Rey

My Sister’s Opinion: The Proof that Kylo Ren Told Rey the Truth About her Parents

My sister arrives to deliver yet another delve into the theory zone about Rey and her position in this story. This time she points to one of the greatest debates of the sequel trilogy; Rey’s parentage. Enjoy!

One of the hottest questions in the entire Sequel Trilogy has concerned the lineage of Rey, whether she is a Skywalker, a Palpatine (which is technically a Skywalker), Ezra Bridger’s granddaughter, or a clone. And I’m sure there are even more theories on her origins.

It has been such a searing query that even when it was answered in The Last Jedi via Kylo Ren, who told Rey her parents had died as “nobodies” on Jakku, the question has persisted–so much that J.J Abrams has confirmed that Rey’s “heritage issue” will be resolved in The Rise of Skywalker.

Now, here’s the thing: it’s already been “resolved”. Right? I mean, Rian Johnson seemed adamant that he wanted the revelation of Rey’s parentage to be the exact opposite to Luke’s. Luke Skywalker discovered his father was a force-wielding giant, Darth Vader/Anakin Skywalker, whereas Rey learned her parents were filthy junk-traders who sold her to Unkar Plutt for another bout at the bar.

And many people were bummed when they heard Kylo Ren utter these words in The Last Jedi. So much, even, that they think he was lying (including my sister).

But here’s the reason he wasn’t.

In The Empire Strikes Back, when Luke has been defeated by Darth Vader in the Cloud City, Darth Vader tells him that he is his father. Remember, Luke first says, “That’s not true. That’s impossible!”

Darth Vader: “Search your feelings, you know it to be true.”

And Luke immediately understands that he is indeed his son and shouts in anguish.

It’s the same way for Rey. Remember, Kylo Ren begins by saying, “Do you want to know the truth about your parents? Or have you always known?” As he gazes at her, he realizes that she already knows, so he continues, “And you’ve just hidden it away. You know the truth. Say it.” She doesn’t respond instantly so he says it again, “Say it.”

And out of her own mouth, without any influence from Kylo Ren, no mind tricks, she states, “They were nobody.”

Then Kylo Ren begins to communicate what she already knows.

When you examine Luke’s account alongside Rey’s, they are incredibly similar. Even their dismissals of joining the Dark Side. It just so happens that because we yearned for a bigtime revelation like Luke’s, we can’t accept Rey’s which is so…lackluster. Like Kylo Ren said, she has no place in this story.

We’ll just have to see if J.J Abrams will uphold this scene in The Last Jedi and maintain Rey’s “nobody” status…which probably won’t happen considering all evidence points to the fact that she is the granddaughter, or distant relative, of Sheev Palpatine.

Whatever the case, he wasn’t lying y’all!

Now, of course, this is my sister’s theory, which actually makes a lot of sense. However, I wrote a post last June sharing my own theory about the exact same scene and why I believe Kylo Ren is lying which you can read here: I Have the Proof That Kylo Ren Didn’t Tell the Full Truth About Rey’s Parents.

I thank you for reading My Sister’s Opinion and I hope you have a spectacular day. May the Force be with you.

I Think I’ve Found the Proof that Rey Is a Palpatine Clone

After recently watching The Last Jedi I was once again struck by the clear blatancy of Rey’s darker side. Throughout the film, she is bombarded by darkness, whether we’re talking about her first lesson with Luke Skywalker or her growing relationship with a very agent of the dark side, Kylo Ren, the darkness in Rey is very apparent.

Of course, throughout my experience watching the film, I couldn’t stop thinking of the infamous Dark Rey that we saw at the end of the D23 Special Look. There are a lot of theories out there about what that haunting scene could mean but I’m heavily leaning toward the idea that Dark Rey was a clone. And I feel I have the definitive proof of that fact.

Halfway through the film, Rey goes down to a cave where she has a haunting vision. Continue reading I Think I’ve Found the Proof that Rey Is a Palpatine Clone
