    2nd act: Oooh nearly there
    3rd act : HOLY F-CK!!!!! That’s the most epic space battle in Star Wars! And the last shot! Whoa…

    Ok. Sorry. But I didn’t expect myself to get so worked up over this movie!! I was one of those people that weren’t convinced by Disney’s plan to make anthology films because they’re blatantly milking the Star Wars cash cow. But when you’re making a cash grab disguised as a…
