Most Anticipated Movies Of 2017 And Why They Should Be Worth Your Time

[tps_title]Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi[/tps_title]

Personally, I’ve found the last two efforts to be a bit disappointing. Fun, but disappointing. I’m hoping that we’ll eventually look back on those two as efforts to get our feet under ourselves that paid off when we got to this one.

However much you might have enjoyed VII, everyone is going to this anyway. It’s Star Wars. It doesn’t really need a trailer, or TV ads, though we’re going to get them anyway. You don’t need me to convince you that you can’t wait for it.

On the other hand, there are some interesting names involved, you’ve just got to wonder where things are headed, and what the hell is with that big Snoke guy?
