A Collection of Thoughts 6: Return of the Undiscovered Country

Hope y’all have had a blessed week so far! I’ll be straight up, I don’t know how long this’ll be. It’s gonna be a collection of mini-topics, which I’ll admit I love doing. Hopefully you’ll enjoy. So I’ve been working crazy hard this past week on the website/website related things. Like I said in the update […]

Solo: A Star Wars Story

I will be straight up my friends – I was wrong. I’ve talked about it in posts and on the podcast – how not getting the trailer till the superbowl was a bad sign, how none of the trailers made me excited, how I didn’t think there was anywhere Han’s story could go, how the actor […]

Let’s Talk About – Which Prequel Trilogy Was Worse: Star Wars or The Hobbit with Mike Naulls

  On today’s episode of One Cross Radio, we are rejoined by longtime friend and film-maker Mike Naulls, and we’re discussing which prequel trilogy is worse – Star Wars Episodes I-III or the Hobbit – two trilogies that were considered a huge down for a lot of fans in their respective franchises. Hope you all enjoy […]

Some of my favourite elements from the Star Wars Expanded Universe

Now up front, I feel I owe an apology to both the Heir of the Empire(/Thrawn Trilogy) and Dark Empire trilogies of novels and comics. In my zeal for Shadows of the Empires impact, I think I may have downplayed their respective impacts. Star Wars was almost dead in the water after the Ewoks and […]

Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire

A long time ago, when the EU was still canon… So Shadows of the Empire is a title that I believe that any child and active Star Wars fan would remember from the mid-90s – heck, it was something even non-active fans would remember. It was, dare I say, the biggest deal in the Expanded […]

Quick Post – a video & a plug

Hey y’all! Just wanted to do a quick post sharing two things! The first is my good friend Melissa Miller’s website. Melissa is a friend of mine from my Touchstone Youth Centre days, is a practicing Christian, wife to an awesome dude named Jason (who does some awesome kit/toy-model work you can see here on his instagram), and […]

A Collection of thoughts 4: Collection & Thoughts

I really couldn’t figure out what title to go with – should it be the Star Wars (which we’ll be looking at) reference, or a poke at The Fast And Furious’s funny trend of just switching up its titles in confusing and funny ways (here’s to Fast 9: Furious Family). A lot of movie news […]

Let’s Talk About – Star Wars: The Last Jedi with Steve Lambert

  Today’s episode revisits Star Wars: The Last Jedi (because I can’t stop talking about Star Wars), and also features our dear friend Pastor Steve Lambert. Steve is another life-long Star Wars fan, and he had a much different take on the film then I did – which is what happened across the Star Wars […]

Let’s Talk About – The Last Jedi

I am a life-long Star Wars fan, and this movie is very divisive – it had a lot of bad and nonsensical, but it had some really solid stuff too. Let’s Talk About – Star Wars: The Last Jedi. What did you think of The Last Jedi? Are you one of the few who are […]

My Top 12 Star Wars Lightsaber Battles

So since I’ve been sick again, I haven’t been able to do the Star Wars  Last Jedi blog yet. So instead I’m gonna do a post ranking the lightsaber battles. A couple of things first though – these are only from the 7 main films (the Last Jedi’s awesome saber-scene isn’t online yet, and Vader’s […]
