Let’s Go, Solo!


Haven’t you always wanted to know about Han Solo’s history? Like where his ne’er-do-well, bad-boy persona originated? Or the true details of the Kessel Run? You know—that amazing feat of myth that’s as ubiquitous a story in the Star Wars Universe as the bad aim of a Stormtrooper? And what about how he became the owner of the Millennium Falcon—wouldn’t you love to see that card game?

Me too!

And now we can! It’ll be extremely interesting to see Han Solo and the Millennium Falcon in their prime. Lando Calrissian too, for that matter. To see the whole gang when they were young and [not] dumb will be fascinating to say the least. And there are some new faces among the crowd that will certainly make this a movie worth watching.

Black Lightning and Grown-ish: The Evolution of Black Television

As we all know, February is Black History Month and it started off pretty well, if you ask me. But something else has come to my attention recently. Two amazing shows that I’m about to talk about, Black Lightning and Grown-ish. Both of these shows were kind of on everyone’s “If I have time I’ll watch it” list. Now, they have become “I want to tune in every week” shows. Black Lightning and Grown-ish have also earned an achievement most tv shows have not. They both have the highest viewer rate on a premiere date from the CW and Freeform. What makes these shows so special? And why are so many people tuning in weekly now? Each show has a diverse cast and they also hit on major issues in almost every episode, which I will explain in a few.

The Thing About Phasma

The lights glint against her armor

And now no man or beast can harm her

She carries herself within her armor with purpose

And now no one will ever see beneath the surface

She aims with deadly precision

And now you’re out of commission

Warrior of the Scyre

With circumstances so dire

The only one willing to take a stand

I am yours to command

-D. Quinn


This article reveals details about The Last Jedi and the book, Phasma . You have been warned.

I’m a huge fan of Phasma. I was a fan of her when I found out that she was being portrayed by the illustrious Brienne of Tarth, a.k.a. Gwendoline Christie. I was even more excited when I found out that Christie literally begged for that role. I had such high hopes for this character. And the epitome of my love for her was reached when I read the book “Phasma” by Delilah S. Dawson. The narrative is an in-depth telling of the history behind Captain Phasma—one of the most faceless faces in the Star Wars Universe. Yes, Phasma is her real name. It’s not a code name or a name given to her by the First Order. It is indeed the name she was given at the time of her birth.

If you’re like me, you had a million and two questions about this character—where is she from? How old is she? What does she do for fun? Most of these questions are answered in the book.

A Review From A Galaxy Far, Far Away…Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Written by D. Quinn

SPOILERALERTSo, before we get started I simply want to say that I enjoyed Star Wars: The Last Jedi. That being said, I expected a lot more. I heard someone say that this movie was better than Empire Strikes Back. If you agree with that, then to you I say this: you need to reevaluate your life choices. There will be spoilers in this so if you have NOT watched The Last Jedi…then you should NOT read this review.

Prepare for a jump to hyperspace.

The Last Jedi picks up where The Force Awakens left off. Rey, in the noblest of gestures, handing over her newly-found lightsaber to its original and rightful owner, Luke Skywalker. If his grim visage from the end of TFA is any indication, his reaction isn’t going to be good. So, what does he do? He chucks it. While I expected something along these lines, I still found it amusing.

After Rey located Luke, we find him living off the land …in exile. Doesn’t this sound a bit familiar? Wait…Luke found Yoda…in exile…
