The Rise of Skywalker had a tremendous battle with an amazing storyline that made the best conclusion for the Skywalker Saga. For many fans of the Skywalker franchise, it may be sad that it ends with this movie but once you watch it, it will blow your breath away. This movie was the best ending Star Wars could ever do for the Skywalker Saga. I loved this because this played back to Luke Skywalker trying to save Darth Vader. Instead in this Rey was given information about her past that changed her forever and which forced her to confront her fears of joining the dark side of the force with Kylo

These three movies are some of my favorite movies in the world. This bundle of DVDs will make a weekend worth being lazy. The first Star Wars movie is a masterpiece which leads to the second and then to the third in a continuous attention-grabbing storyline. There is action, adventure, and betrayal. The Star Wars 1-3 movies are sad at the end but are amazing to watch. Every Star Wars movie, so far, has had three movies to tell their story. These first 3 films entail the quest to find Anakin Skywalker. The first “Episode” leads with the discovery of Anakin Skywalker, a child on Tatooine, who

Star Wars: A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi are my favorite Star Wars movies of all-time. I love them because they have action, adventure, betrayal, reality, and a happy ending. I have always liked the 4-6 Star Wars movies better than any other because this was how Anakin Skywalker succumbed to the dark side of the force but his son, Luke Skywalker, tried everything to stop him. These next three movies are about Luke Skywalker's journey with the Rebellion to stop the oppressing force of the Empire and save his father.


I recommend these next three movies in the

Rogue One was an amazing movie that had action, mystery, adventure, and new knowledge towards the watchers. Rogue One is about a band of rebels who are led by Jyn Erso to obtain information to destroy a secret weapon that the Empire is building. This movie takes place between the 3rd and 4th movie of the Skywalker Saga and could be called the 3.5 Star Wars movie. It is entertaining to watch and spectacular to listen to. My favorite part about Rogue One is the difference in format Star War put in this movie. Instead of introducing this as a Star Wars movie; it is a Star Wars Story. This movie

I loved how Star Wars: The Force Awakens introduced new and different characters into the main roles for the next 3 movies. The appearance of Rey, Fin (FN2187), and Kylo Ren was amazing. After the fall of the Empire, the rebels took control of the galaxy and helped its people. There were a few who still believed in the dark side of the force, the First Order, and took it upon themselves to attack the Resistance. There was a confusing point throughout the movie to whom the new Jedi was going to be. A stormtrooper, Fin, saw how the First Order treated people and left but there was also a girl

Solo begins with Han and Qi’Ra, a friend, escaping their home world. They get separated and Han goes on his mission to gain enough money to save his friend. This movie is my favorite Star Wars story and is a lot different than what you would expect from Han Solo. If you have not seen the original 4-6 Star Wars films then Hans Solo is an overconfident weasel who tries to talk his way out of debts that he gets into. It makes the movie seem funny when you see a younger version of Han Solo who is nothing like the older version. This movie is an amazing watch and I recommend it to people who love

Star Wars The Last Jedi was my favorite movie in the 7-9 Star Wars films because it was in the format of The Empire Strikes Back. After the conclusion of The Force Awakens, Rey journeys through the Galaxy to find Luke Skywalker. While Rey is on her own mission the Resistance is attacked by the First Order. I watched this movie in theaters for the first time and I had an amazing time sitting in the dark and looking at this tremendous movie. I recommend this film to people who love watching Star Wars movies and who loved The Empire Strikes Back movie. To compare this movie to any Star Wars film

The first time I saw this book was online while I was browsing through the Johnson County website. I was interested in this book because of the cover. As I read further into this book I understood that it was more than an adventure story but also a way of going on the journey with Karr. This book has the highest of commendations because it shows how Karr, a kid, journeys throughout the entire galaxy to find out how his powers work only to find out that he was predestined to do something else. This book will help people find how to find themselves because it helped me in that way. When you open

The moment I read the first chapter of Star Wars Lost Stars I knew it was going to be one of my favorite books. When you read the first chapter, not only do you get to know the two main character’s backstories but also how they came into their passion for flying ships. Ciena and Thane are two different people. One from the rich folk and another from the valleys. They were best friends for many years and even went to the same Imperial academy together. Throughout the book you start to see the characters change in either massive or short ways. Thane has different opinions about the Empire and

This book is a lovely, in depth look at Padmé's transition between Queen and Senator. It delves into the the inner workings of the galactic Senate and how Padmé finds her place there. I loved the cover! The art was gorgeous and it did a good job of conveying the theme of the book. I also loved how Padmé's handmaidens were their own characters, and how the author fleshes out characters that were only present for seconds in the movies. It's as compelling as some of the best fics I've read, which is truly the highest compliment I can give a novel.

Lords of the Sith

Paul S. Kemp's Lords of the Sith tells the tale of a Darth Vader who is new to his alliance with the Dark Side of the Force. Vader's allegiances to his Sith master, Darth Sidious, are put to the test in myriad ways as the two villains encounter a skillful resistance movement on the planet Ryloth. Led by the cunning strategist Cham Syndulla (Star Wars: Rebels fans will likely recall Cham as Hera Syndulla's father), this band of resistance fighters may just stop at nothing to rid their beloved home of the Empire's influence. Rather than simply strike at the military forces occupying Ryloth, only

Picking up right where Star Wars, the Force Awakens' story left off, The Last Jedi continues the adventures of Rey, Finn, and Poe following their triumph over the First Order forces on Starkiller Base. Though the Resistance scored a huge victory, we are still faced with many questions: How can the Resistance possibly hope to stand against such an obviously superior foe? Will the now-located Luke Skywalker come out of hiding to save the galaxy?


Oh, and just who is this last Jedi, anyway?


Spoilers ahead!

Set shortly after the events detailed in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the SithKenobi tells a story of Obi-Wan Kenobi adjusting to his new life on the desert planet of Tatooine. Charged with not only concealing his Jedi past from those who might seek to cause him harm, Obi-Wan also faces the teeny-tiny task of somehow managing--from afar--to protect the life of the youth who just might be the savior of the galaxy! Although his presence on the desert world is rooted in secrecy and anonymity, those familiar with everyone's favorite scruffy-looking Jedi know that trouble doesn't take long

Ah, a story featuring the scary-looking, staff-sabered Sith apprentice, Darth Maul! If you are reading this review, you've most likely seen Star Wars Episode One: The Phantom Menace, so you'll no doubt recall Maul as the strong, silent type. Admittedly, I was more than a tad hesitant upon embarking on this book's voyage. Does Maul speak at all? What if entire conversations held with Maul only involve him snarling at people before attacking them with that crazy-cool light saber? My goodness, why am I actually reading this via audio book, of all things?

In Star Wars Crucible, Marvid and Craitheus Qreph, lifelong enemies of Han Solo, stage a hostile takeover of Lando Calrissian’s asteroid refinery operation. Han steps in to help his good buddy Lando and prevent a galaxy-wide domination.
