My First The Last Jedi Review: Revenge Of The Return Strikes Back

*Since Star Wars is effectively a non-entity and a bit of a joke at this point, I thought I would drag my original post on this film out from the ether, update it a bit but not much, and send it back out into a cruel world.  Plus, I had just rewatched the Red Letter …

There’s No Trouble With The Trouble With Harry

This post is part of The Bernard Herrmann Blogathon that The Classic Movie Muse is hosting from October 29 through October 31st!
