Star Wars: Episode IX - The Rise of Skywalker (2019) is a futuristic fantasy adventure movie, about the Resistance rebels trying to protect the galaxy from the superweapon of the First Order. I tend to watch movies later after the release, so I get a better chance of evaluating them, by reading reviews and talking with people, but as I know I'd watch Star Wars movies anyway, I watched this as soon as I can, otherwise media channels would spoil any surprise out of the movie. The film is visually astounding, the action scenes look good, though lack any kind of tension. The storytelling is also lacking, but you might enjoy it if you can sit back and don't want to think. I did not enjoy the movie, but I can imagine some could find it interesting.

Terminator: Dark Fate is a futuristic adventure movie, about a group of people trying to survive the relentless attacks of a killer robot from the future. As a fan of the first two movies, I was curious what would James Cameron do after getting back the Terminator rights due to the fumbles of the previous reboot films. I was not satisfied.

"The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown"

H. P. Lovecraft

Perhaps the most famous quote from Lovecraft. But who was he and why am I talking about it on a games website? Those who know the answer will probably smile in front of the screens (stupid question!), But those who don't, I'll open their eyes now because something is going on! Something that's not of this world!

Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi (2017) is a futuristic fantasy adventure movie, about the Resistance rebels defending against the First Order rebels. Usually I wait to watch movies after reading about the opinion of people, but this time I've felt I'd watch it anyway, no matter what they say, and I didn't want to make the experience worse by hearing spoilers. It's a visually nice movie, with great action scenes, without any substantial story or logic behind it. I was somewhat disappointed by the film, but even I have to admit that Disney keeps the stories very even in quality.
