Kylo Ren has found the Sith Wayfinder and it led him to the planet Exegol.  He discovers the man who created Snoke and Darth Vader.  Now, this man is willing to give Kylo Ren the throne to an empire bigger than any before it.  Kylo Ren will be the new leader of the Final Order.  He only has to do one thing: kill Rey.  Before Kylo heads on his mission, the man warns him: Rey is not what she appears to be.  Back on the Millennium Falcon, Po, Fin, and Chewbacca got a message from a mole in the First Order.  Kylo Ren has the Wayfinder and discovered the true origin of the Sith.  They fly back to tell General Leia and Rey.  Rey is completing her Jedi training and reading through Luke Skywalker’s text.  When Fin lands, Rey can’t believe the Millennium Falcon is on fire.  Fin can’t believe that Rey let a tree fall on BB-8.  Once Fin settles down the argument, they have to tell Rey and Leia the intel: The Sith leader is back and out to kill Rey.  They must find a Wayfinder to get to Exegol.  Then kill the Sith leader for good.  Rey wants to go alone.  Lately, she has had vision of herself sitting on the Sith Throne … next to Kylo Ren.  She is afraid of the path she will take and don’t want to take her friends with her.  But they refuse to stay behind.  They decide to be with her all the way.

Extreme, hardcore Star Wars fans will hate this movie because they never wanted to like it since Disney bought the franchise.  Regular hardcore fans will pick it apart for inconsistencies.  Casual fans will like the cinematography, the spot-on graphics, and overall story arc.  Action fans will like the choreographed fight scenes but would want more blood.  When watching this movie you can finds connections between the plot and Episodes 4, 5, and 6.  At some points, it feels like the same story is being told again.  During the movie, you are transported to another world that feels, looks, and sounds real.  Like all Star Wars movies, there is nothing to see after the credits.  While the movie is available in 3D, it’s not necessary to enjoy the film.  However, viewers should see it in IMAX.  The larger screen makes it easier for your eyes to feast on this film.  This movie ends the way it should and gives fans a final bow.  The fan you are determines if you see this or Episode 6 as the final bow.  All in all, it’s a fun action movie with the characters you know and the characters you love with a few more thrown in for good measure and humor.  Nothing like a good droid hacker.

Thomas Edison created the light bulb and a Direct Current to send electricity from home to another.  He has presented his idea to J.P. Morgan to gain financing for his future endeavors.  The married father of two never leaves home without his secretary, Samuel Insull.  Edison describes Insull as himself, only human.  With J.P. Morgan’s money, Edison plans to bring electricity to homes all over the United States.  However, two men see a flaw in his design.  George Westinghouse created breaks for trains but he has always been in the shadow of Edison.  After seeing Edison’s design, George realizes Edison can only provide electricity in a one-mile radius.  In the city’s, with homes so close together, this is ok.  But in rural areas, this will be a problem.  Rural areas will look like a checkboard with light and dark patches.  Westinghouse has created an Alternating Current method.  Power can travel across wires attached to large poles.   Westinghouse’s design will provide more homes with power at a cheaper cost.  Edison tells the press Westinghouse design is dangerous and could kill people.  His solution may be more expensive but it is safer.  Nikola Tesla, after working for Edison, believes that both men are thinking too small.  He wants to turn water into an energy source.  Also, he believes the currents can do more than power lightbulbs, it can power machines.  Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse will battle the current wars for over a decade.  And the winner will be declared by who runs the Chicago World’s Fair.

The Current War spawned great inventions, companies, and deadly consequences.  Inventions like the phonograph and motion pictures were created during this war.  J.P Morgan and General Electric took off.  It is shocking how a race to be first caused Thomas Edison to go back on his morals and create a device under the Westinghouse name.  When they couldn’t settle their problems in court, they went to the papers.  Their wives were behind them every step of the way.  However, Edison and Westinghouse understood they were only as good as their latest invention.   Edison hated that Westinghouse used is lightbulb design.  Westinghouse hated that Edison didn’t respect his work.  Your eyes will be opened by this movie and its detail to history.  You will learn a great deal about modern technology we often take for granted.

I give it 4 out of 5 stars

What did the boy say – J. P. Morgan

Do you not love us anymore – Dash and Dot
