    Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith

    β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½

    The crux of the prequels...

    The movie that told the story we wanted, that the two previous entries haven't been able to provide.

    It's canon film that gave our fantasies a little truth (prior to the prequels). The fight between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader (formerly known as Anakin Skywalker) that was as epic as we wanted it to be... on a freaking volcano planet surrounded by lava. Just image going around fantasizing about that moment for 20 years, and…

    Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones

    β˜…β˜…β˜…

    I've waited for this film since it was first announced that Damien Chazelle was making his next film. I loved Whiplash. And when I saw the first trailer to La La Land, I knew that I would love it too.

    I mean the literal thought of the film could bring tears to my eyes. La La Land is such a me film. It's about Movies and…
