Origins: Missed Opportunities, Porgs and Han Solo

Heads up, people...plenty of snark ahead. I really tried to be even-handed, but it's very difficult to stay that way when certain people insist on making things political.

Origins will feature little blips about current films, but will mainly focus on their earlier iterations or else films that are similar to them. Or, it might … Continue reading Origins: Luke’s Journey From Farm Boy to Last Jedi
