The Walt Disney Company has an obligation to fire actress Gina Carano from The Mandalorian following her Twitter activity. I don’t take this lightly.  This is not only something I say as a Star Wars fan but I also feel an obligation to speak out as a Disney shareholder.  If Cara Dune is part of The Mandalorian‘s third season, it will make for some rather uncomfortable viewing.  Should Dune be brought back for season 3,…

Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark

Harrison Ford became the face of a new franchise in the iconic Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark from Steven Spielberg and George Lucas. Many filmmakers in New Hollywood either collaborated on projects together or would offer their advice to one another.  In this instance, the brains behind both Jaws and Star Wars teamed up to give us an American sort of James Bond.  This film has everything: action, adventure, and yet…

Star Wars: The Last Jedi – Road to IX

Star Wars: The Last Jedi may or may not be the best film in the franchise but writer-director Rian Johnson delivers the goods in the eighth installment. What follows below the asterisks is the bulk of my original review–first published in 2017.  My feelings on this film have not changed in two years.  In fact, the film only improves with time.  Rian Johnson would turn out to be the perfect filmmaker to take on the…
