REVIEW – Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

Screen Shot 2019-12-23 at 8.26.36 PM

SURPRISE!

Even though Katey and David are on well deserved holiday breaks, Da7e and Patches thought it would be weird to end 2019 without talking about Star Wars: The Rise of Skeywalker, the newest Star Wars movie where JJ Abrams tries to wrap up the Skywalker Saga.

SPOILERS THROUGHOUT – Either see the movie or make peace with it.

See you for Top Tens 2019 later this week!
