REVIEW: “Solo: A Star Wars Story”

As a kid, I always saw myself as Luke Skywalker, but I always wanted to be Han Solo. As I wrote when The Last Jedi came out, I identified with Luke’s awkwardness and compassion, but envied Han’s charm and natural skill. It wasn’t until later that I began to appreciate the complexities in Han’s character arc. Han Solo isn’t simply ...

REVIEW: “The Last Jedi” Novelization by Jason Fry

Jason Fry’s novelization of The Last Jedi is a retelling of Rian Johnson’s film, with a greater emphasis on the characters and less humor. Like most novelizations, the book sticks pretty close to the story we saw on screen back in December. However, Fry gets to spend time inside the characters’ heads, shedding light on how the characters viewed certain events. ...

Middle-earth Menu: “Hearty Lunch Pie”

By Astrid Tuttle Winegar When visitors come to Bamfurlong, Mrs. Maggot likes to serve her “healthier” version of a classic shepherd’s pie. It’s healthier because of the spinach, which is straight out of her garden. Make Maggot’s “Mini-Mashers” first, or buy a 24-ounce container of ready-made mashed potatoes and add an egg to it. Or you could use 3 cups ...

The Last Jedi and Me

In the weeks since I shared my first impressions of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Episode VIII has become the most divisive film in the Star Wars canon. Professional reviewers, who tend to prioritize the acting and themes in a film, have overwhelmingly praised the way director Rian Johnson deconstructs Star Wars tropes and subverts expectations. By contrast, fans, who ...

The Legendarium team is excited about Star Wars: The Last Jedi’s success! Then again, most people predicted it would go beyond our expectations. Here’s what Legendarium contributor Dom Nardi has to say about the latest installment from a galaxy far, far away: One of my biggest critiques of Star Wars: The Force Awakens was that it relied too much on nostalgia.

REVIEW: Blade Runner 2049

Ridley Scott’s 1982 classic Blade Runner helped me understand humanity. The film is rightly lauded for its detailed world-building and hypnotic score, but it is also a philosophical treatise about human identity (seriously, Ridley Scott’s oeuvre has spawned a whole academic subfield). Humans unfortunately have a tendency to tribalism, defining some members of the species as sufficiently worthy of respect while excluding ...
