6 Star Wars Films to Be Out By 2020

TechInsider reporting that 6 Star Wars films will be out by the end of 2020.

Movies include sequels in the ongoing line (i.e. what Rey and friends are up to next), Rogue One, a spinoff about young Han Solo, a spinoff about Boba Fett.

What do you think, 3.5 readers?

My first concern is I wonder if Star Wars’ success hasn’t been a case of “absence makes the heart grow fonder.”

When I was a young adult,  I cheered for the prequels because I was just happy to see lightsabers on screen again.  Years later I look back and realize that yeah, those movies sucked.  Revenge of the Sith wasn’t bad though.

But I wonder if maybe the time between film releases helps us to love these movies more.

Maybe too many will cause us to lose interest.  Like that love interest you’re pining for, you want her so bad but once you get her you realize there’s a person in your house cutting her fingernails everywhere.  Yet when she goes away you want her back.

Then again, Marvel has been riding high on since 2008 when the first Iron Man was released.  Disney’s purchase of and oversight of Marvel has made those movies a success and to date, I have not grown tired of them despite there having been so many of them.

Iron Man 3 was the only stinker, in my opinion but hey in all those movies, one dud is inevitable.

So maybe Disney can keep Star Wars coming and keep us riveted.  They seem to know what it takes to keep the kids happy and buying merchandise and keep the adults from complaining that the film hasn’t become too cutesy.

BQB’s Favorite YouTubers – Comic Book Girl 19

Hey 3.5 Readers.  You Tubers are like self-publishers for video production, right?

Once in awhile I’ll talk about my favorite YouTubers.

First up, Comic Book Girl 19.  She’s a nerd.  She’s hilarious.  Swears constantly.  Has sidekicks like Robot (usually broken due to a bad wire or something) and Space Brain (floating brain.)

Reviews nerdy movies, comic books, TV shows.  Did a series of videos explaining the back story of Game of Thrones.  Helped me understand some of the stuff going on, who is related to who and so on.

Comic Book Girl 19 – Youtube – Why Did I Go See Gods of Egypt

By the way, I agree with her about Gods of Egypt.  That movie sucked so bad that I didn’t even bother to review it.

So much CGI but so little substance.  Had a few good moments.  But mostly sucked.
