Trailer Spotlight – Harrison Ford is back in Indiana Jones 5: Dial of Destiny (2023)

Woo wee!! Color me surprised, pleasantly surprised that is. To be honest, I was mostly meh about the latest Indiana Jones installment, mostly because The Kingdom of Crystal Skull is such an abomination (see this list of unnecessary blockbuster sequels).

Obi-Wan Kenobi series trailer got me excited for the Star Wars universe once again

I've got to admit that since Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker, I got pretty Star Wars fatigue. Yes I did binged The Mandalorian (because, well who could resist Pedro Pascal and Baby Yoda) but I skipped The Book of Boba Fett. My hubby was playing the clip with Luke Skywalker and Grogu on …
