It has been a while since I blogged about a movie although I have watched quite a few since the last time I blogged about one.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens. 

In one word, epic!

C3PO and R2D2, move over!
BB8 is the new star of the show!

I watched my first Star Wars movie in Capitol Theatre when I was in Primary 3, if I remember correctly. I have watched every single Star Wars movie since. 

Yes, I am a big fan.

If you are a fan like I am and if you are a male in your 40s, you should be and you would want to watch this latest episode. 

I enjoyed the movie partly because it was like a family reunion with all the original cast although all much older now. Yes, I know. Sentimentality is a sign of old age.

Although I suspected that it would happen, it was still very sad when Hans Solo died at the hands of his own son (whom he fathered with Princess Leia). Their son who called Darth Vader his maternal grandfather went to the Dark Side, in case you are wondering.

I will miss Hans Solo.

OK, on to a delightful find. The Millenium Falcon! Yes, older and dirtier but it still packed a punch! I dreamt of flying in the Millenium Falcon when I was a boy.

Luke Skywalker had the easiest job in the movie, appearing only at the end, standing on top of a mountain, looking contemplative. 

We don't have to contemplate too much. We know to look out for the next episode.

I am not going to say very much else except to thank my broker for the treat. 

May the Force be with you!

My last blog post about a movie:
Exodus: Gods and Kings.

Hi Howard,

LOL. Despite what some might think, I did not leak the plot at all. I just shared a couple of scenes. Seriously, the plot has not been leaked! ;)
