Rogue One: Post Mission Debriefing (Movie Review)

(Read the Pre-Flight Jitters blog first) The first half of this review is going to be about my impressions of Rogue One without any spoilers. While I don’t mind them, I know a LOT of people do.

Rogue One: Pre-flight Jitters

I’m doing my Rogue One blog in two parts, mostly because I’m curious to see how my impressions compare before and after what is a significant media event thirty-nine (yes, 39) years in the making.

A Fact of Life and Business

Once upon a time there was a plumber named Bob and a home-builder named Tom. On a bright, sunny day, Tom asked Bob to tile a bathroom for a home. Tom intended to sell this home to either investors or other homebuilders. The two men agreed upon an estimated price for the work, and with … Read more…
