Today is Star Wars Day. The only celebration, at least to my knowledge, based around a dad joke.
Dad jokes are good though. What would a dad be with out being able to make us groan at a silly joke. Sometimes the funnest part is when you know something silly is coming but you can’t quite see where he’s going to go with it. So yes: May the Fourth Be with You.
I saw Rogue One back in, I think it was, January. It was a worthy addition to the Star Wars universe. It had its problems certainly – but it was enjoyable. I think the biggest disappointment to me was no opening text crawl – and when thinking about it afterwards I couldn’t even tell you the names of the characters.
If there is a battle between Rogue One and The Force Awakens my vote goes to the latter. That film had issues too but I warmed more to Rey than I did to Jyn. My major issue with The Force Awakens was bringing in yet another planet busting weapon. I hope The Last Jedi does something new.
Happy Star Wars Day to you all. Are any of you marathoning the films today? Are you skipping any of them?
May the force be with you.
I just wanted to say that I have checked this post. I really have. Unfortunately my particular combination of dyslexia and dyspraxia makes it really hard for me to spot typos. Please enjoy and I’ll try not to make too many errors.
