    Star Wars: Episode IX - The Rise of Skywalker 4K Blu-ray Review
    J.J. Abrams contrives to conclude Disney's trilogy in George Lucas' universe, rounding out an up-and-down 9-film series in a scattershot approach to satisfying a demanding audience, and turning in a feature that, at the least, looks and sounds stunning in native 4K with Dolby Atmos.

    Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace 4K Blu-ray Review
