I remember being 17 years old and after standing in line for hours to see Star Wars I walked out of the theater sorely disappointed, although I went to a record store (as they were called back in those days) bought the sound track on 8-track tape. I never saw Star Wars again, nor have I seen any of the later episodes in the franchise. In honor of Carrie, I went online this morning and after a near thirty year absence, I watched Star Wars once more.

Goodbye Carrie.

Nothing can be made idiot proof because idiots are far too clever.

Increase the Flash Gordon Soundtrack and put more sciencey stuff around.

Okay, I'm going to talk about Rogue One, so if you haven't seen it yet don't read what's in Red because:



~~~

"I left a flaw in the design that if you destroy the Main Reactor the whole station will explode." (Or something along those lines)

It's the Main Reactor, wouldn't that happen any way?

~~~

My favorite scene is when the Rebels use that Hammerhead Corvette to push the disabled Star Destroyer into the other Star Destroyer and take out the shield gate. (Good thing the shield generator wasn't on the planet.)

Or expanding on my earlier post (top of page 15) when the Heart of the Mountain bulldozed the Extinction Level Event into the Kiss Your Ass Goodbye.


~~~

Now, if memory serves, it's opening weekend was during the Polar Vortex/Arctic Blast/Colder Than A Witch's... meaning some unlucky bastard had to go out in the God awful weather to change the sign, and possibly again because they spelled it Rouge One.

Happy Star Wars Day

It's a thing.  It's like a plan, but with more greatness.

Fighting? There's no fighting in Plan C. Plan C is run away faster!

The past with dumb people who wanted to kill us for dumb reasons is behind us.  Ahead is a new place with new people who'll want to kill us for totally different reasons!

I'm watching Star Wars Rebels with my son last night and I noticed this on Hera:



She has eye brows.  That blew my mind for some reason.  I looked around Wookieepedia at some other Twi'leks, and all of the females seem to have eye brows, but none of the males do. That just seems insane to me.

This is not going to go the way you think.

Am I the only person not enthused about the new trailer and the direction it makes it look like the movie is going to go?

The Han Solo movie has an official title.

And it's very imaginative.  I wonder how they came up with it? Must be Ron Howard's creative influence.
