I asked Mom if she could make a baby Yoda for my desk and she came through. This is awesome!

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

People’s reactions seem to be all over the map after watching The Last Jedi. I enjoyed it. It’s a really fun movie. I don’t remember the last time I watched a two and a half hour¬†movie without feeling bored or uncomfortable at all. When I got in my car I remember looking at the clock and thinking it was off; I couldn’t have possibly been in the theater that long.

Everything you said about this movie is wrong.¬†If you walked out of the movie disappointed, listen to this podcast. Hopefully it’ll help you appreciate the film a little more.

I think a key point they make is Star Wars is for kids. We’re grown up kids now, but there are new generations of children being introduced to this universe with each movie. We keep getting older, but there are always going to be children watching their first Star Wars film.

Pew Pew Pew

It’s December and that means Star Wars! I’ll be ready for The Last Jedi with this new t-shirt. My brother saw it on Woot and thought I’d love it. Of course I ordered it right away!

Review: Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith

Star Wars - Episode III, Revenge of the SithIt’s been over a month since I saw Revenge of the Sith, so a review is long overdue. I might need to see the movie again to remember it!

Like most people, I was disappointed with Episodes I and II, so I was really looking forward to III. It didn’t disappoint me. I thought the movie was a great finish to the last (actually 3rd in the timeline) of the Star Wars movies. Revenge of the Sith answered all of the questions I had going into it. I won’t go into any detail because I wouldn’t want to spoil it for anyone who hasn’t seen the movie.

I do have to bring up two things I didn’t care for. I thought General Grievous would be a much more prominent charcter in the film. I thought he went down pretty easy to Obi-Wan Kenobi. I was waiting for a big battle where he took on 4 or 5 Jedi. Which leads me to my other complaint. Did the Jedi go down too easy or what?

With that said, I thoroughly enjoyed Episode III and give it an A.

Review: Star Wars – Clone Wars, Vol.1

Star Wars - Clone Wars, Vol. 1 (Animated)With Star Wars Episode III less than two months away, not many people are aware of this DVD, but it’s a very important piece of the story. So what is it? George Lucas wanted to bridge the gap between Episodes II and III, so he decided to team up with the Cartoon Network to produce an animated series.

Volume one of the Clone Wars is composed of 20 three minute long pieces which have been shown on the Cartoon Network TV channel. For the DVD, each part of the series was seamlessly combined into one long piece. Clone Wars has a lot of action with little diaglog, as most animated films are.

The whole idea behind the series is to explain what happened during the Clone Wars because we don’t get to see it during the real Star Wars episodes. There is battle after battle shown throughout the DVD and you even get the first underwater battle in the history of Star Wars. You get to see some of the events that push Anakin towards the dark side and Obi-Wan’s attempts to control the young Jedi Knight.

Every true Star Wars fan needs to see this DVD before going to the theater for Episode III Revenge of the Sith. Since this if Volume 1, there is no doubt there will be at least one more, but I sure hope the DVD is released before May 19th.

I give this movie an A-.
