The Last Jedi: Preview Review

This is not a review; it’s just my immediate opinions on this movie. Warning: May Contain Spoilers. I did NOT like The Last Jedi.

She’s not exactly the most heroic of characters and you’re not exactly even rooting for her as you read it. I think the Brothers Grimm were more observant Narrators than passionate ones. So, the characters that … Continue reading Tangled
