With Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker in theatres and Disney+’s hit show The Mandalorian finishing its first season, Star Wars is again firmly back in the contemporary zeitgeist.

It is my humble opinion that, when it comes to a cultural landmark movie like Star Wars: The Force Awakens, even opinions and critical consensus constitute a spoiler. For that reason, I’ll throw up a great, big SPOILER WARNING right here, even though I am going to make a concerted effort not to ACTUALLY spoil […]

When I first heard that Star Wars: Battlefront II, possibly one of the most enjoyable and accomplished battlefield-games of the PS2/Xbox generation, was getting a reboot, I was both hugely excited and anxious at the same time. You see, when grappling with such a beloved franchise, every effort must be made to try and reach, […]
