I must apologize for the lateness of this post.  I’ve been under the weather a bit lately and with all of the Christmas preparations underway it’s been a tad difficult to keep up with the site.  For that I am truly sorry.  However, you can catch up with my latest audio reviews of “Ladybird,” “Three Billboards,” and others by clicking on the link to the America Matters Media website and searching for the show “Dog’s Movie House” among the many podcasts.  That should keep you up to date as my health continues to improve.  That said, it’s time for my review of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.”  I will keep this review spoiler-free for those of you who haven’t had a chance to check it out yet, but I will say that writer/director Rian Johnson has definitely made a film that takes some terrific story Doturns while still feeling like a Star Wars film.   It manages to darken things up a bit thematically while still providing the humor and fireworks one is accustomed to seeing in a Star Wars film.   In short, “The Last Jedi” is positively terrific!

Daisy Ridley As Rey In “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”




The winter biggies are beginning their full court press in the form of final trailers.  “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” released it’s second trailer and boy, is it a stunner.  Consider my interest ramped to new all time high for this one.  Meanwhile, the new “Justice League” trailer is intriguing for the lighter comedy aspects (especially Ezra Miller’s Flash) but still shows more of the same from the other trailers.  Looking forward to Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, though.   And finally we have our first look at Josh Boone’s “New Mutants” which is presenting the intriguing idea of the X-Men (variations of them at least) in a haunted laboratory setting.  It’s certainly different than any other mutant movie that’s come before.  Enjoy all of them and feel free to comment below!  So Sayeth The Kendog!
