Weekly Recap: Star Wars, 1917 & More!
We've now arrived at the biggest release of the season, let alone the year. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is now in theaters everywhere and it's...a bit of a letdown. It will no doubt appeal to a certain side of the fandom, and that's great, and I hope it grows on me over time, I guess. Regardless, I have a review of that film, along with an early one for 1917. There's also my list of various award contenders still in theaters and now on home media, and various streaming services. The first of a few top ten lists is up as well. There's also Ad Astra out on home media as well. Finally, there are plenty of new trailers to dig into as well, along with our latest podcast covering Uncut Gems. Enjoy and thanks for reading!
