In Theaters Now: The Last Jedi

Achariya and I had a ripping discussion on The Last Jedi today. Yes, it begins with light fangirling over Adam ‘Bae Vader’ Driver, but that doesn’t last long.

Achariya and I had a ripping discussion on The Last Jedi today. Yes, it begins with light fangirling over Adam ‘Bae Vader’ Driver, but that doesn’t last long. Tonight we’ll be seeing ‘Darkest Hour’ and will have something up on that tomorrow or Wednesday. May the Force Be With You!

Spoilers Below the Cut!

THE STARS HAVE ALIGNED!

I’ll sit back and let those first few notes of the theme carry me away, and experience the magic all over again. Then I’ll get home, pack, wrap Xmas presents, throw Herzog in the car in his carrier and head north for ninety minutes.

It’s been a rough few weeks. I got to see Star Wars, and have been struggling financially otherwise – basically I live paycheck to paycheck. I’m not complaining – in fact I am INCREDIBLY fortunate that I just have myself and Herzog to look after, and that I’m able to live as well as I do. Many people don’t! Many people have kids to look after, family obligations to take care of, and of course, keep food on the table and the light and heat on and manage to do so by the skin of their teeth, or by working two jobs. I have friends who are on food stamps despite working full time jobs, just so they can eat. My financial troubles were ALL My own making and I am slowly fixing that, but there are a lot of things I do without.

So when I realized I was getting paid a day early, I was over the moon! AND I am getting released several hours’ early from work. This means that I am seeing Star Wars again, in my favorite theater, before I head out of town to visit my family for the holidays. It’s a little dinner theater that serves beer and wings and salads and burgers, and there are hand-painted murals on the walls of Silver Screen legends like Chaplin and Mae West. It’s a wee little theater and I’ve spent some of the happiest hours of the last year there – in fact, I was there LAST Christmas Eve watching The Hobbit: Battle of The Five Armies.

This is the gift I’m giving myself this year, and I’m super, SUPER thankful that I can do it. I’ll sit back and let those first few notes of the theme carry me away, and experience the magic all over again. Then I’ll get home, pack, wrap Xmas presents, throw Herzog in the car in his carrier and head north for ninety minutes.

So once again, from me to all of  you, wherever you are and whatever you celebrate, please have a holiday season of warmth, light and joy!

Star Wars: The Force Awakens

GOD I can’t wait to discuss once everyone has seen it.

PLEASE HURRY UP AND SEE IT BECAUSE I CAN’T HOLD ON TO THIS FOREVER.

I have to get up for work in 3.5 hours, so I’ll keep this short and spoiler free –

You had best take a selfie now, because you will LOSE. YOUR. SHIT. permanently and never see it again after. 

It’s that good. Perfect blend of original and innovative, emotion and action, style and substance.

GOD I can’t wait to discuss once everyone has seen it. 

PLEASE HURRY UP AND SEE IT BECAUSE I CAN’T HOLD ON TO THIS FOREVER.

I will try to get something posted in the next few days, and I will be sure to put it behind a cut to avoid spoilers for folks.

And it feels so good to say this and not have it feel cheap or campy but…

…May the Force be with you.
