STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI – Rian Johnson

STAR WARS THE LAST JEDI

That old familiar theme song queues…and we’re all once again transported to a…GALAXY FAR, FAR, AWAY… It’s hard to believe, but this year marks 40 years since the release of the very first, STAR WARS film, in 1977! I have been a major fan since day one. I saw the first film when I was 6 years old, and have been to every opening weekend, of every STAR WARS film ever since. The franchise has certainly come a long way.

SARAH FRENCH – Interview

Sarah French

One of my favorite interviews was with a local Minnesota actress, who is now making her mark on Hollywood, and is also showing off her talents as an author. I’m speaking of Actress/Writer… Sarah French. I first interviewed Sarah in August 2015, for the Tri County Sun, which appeared in the August 12th issue.

BLADE RUNNER 2049 – Denis Villeneuve

BLADE RUNNER 2049

In the summer of 1982, I was 11 years old.  That summer you could find me at the movies more often than not.  Some of the greatest films were released that year, such as E.T., Poltergeist, The Thing, and many others. However, one of the biggest science fiction blockbusters from that year released was Blade Runner, so you could bet I’d be there.
