As a Star Wars fan, I was hugely let down by The Last Jedi. I had big expectations following the previous film, The Force Awakens, which, despite criticisms that it was essentially a rewrite of A New Hope, just felt like Star Wars to me. It’s a hard concept to explain, but I’m sure other […]Read more "This isn’t the “Star Wars” film you’re looking for"
Last week I started my two-part piece on my first impressions for Destiny 2, based on the Beta build that recently closed.
