“I don’t know where you get your delusions laser brain” Princess Leia: Empire Strikes Back
A Rogue Resistance warning: Rogue One spoilers lie ahead! Do not get lured by the dark side…see the movie before you read on!
It is always a traumatic time when a major movie franchise loses one its crown jewels upon the screen, but when that loss transcends to reality the passing is always a bitter pill to swallow. This loss was profound, one I have never quite experienced before in the fandom of Star Wars. The loss of Kenny Baker was a body blow to us all,...
Republic Pilot: *Flying the Imperial Landing Craft above several mountains*
Heidi: *Watching Colonel Turner look at some books John gave to him. She switches her seat, moving from the left side of the ship to the right*
Colonel Turner: *Looking at the names in the book* Barkley wrote these names?
John: Yes. It's a list of Imperial agents in Coruscant.
Colonel Turner: That Barkley.
John: And Thomas, and Christianson.
Colonel Turner: *Looks at John with a look of amazement* All three of them? Incredible.
Because it's the last day of 2016, I've decided to dedicate an article to a special someone who meant a lot to me, and for everyone else: Carrie Fisher.
Like everyone else, I was pretty damn (Sorry about that.) shocked when I heard about Carrie Fisher's death. I was talking to my friend on Google+ when he informed about her death. I knew that she had a heart attack about a week before she died, but I didn't expect this.
I'm not very good with writing but I wanted to try and express my feeling about getting the heartbreaking news yesterday afternoon about Ms. Carrie Fisher's passing.
This celebrity death hit me hard, it was like I lost a family member, it was like I've known her, even though I've never meet her, she's been a part of my life since I was 8 years old, just hard to believe she's gone. Yes, as an 8 year old boy, she was my first crush, even if I didn't realize it. I grew up with her, she was always Princess Leia to me, yes I've seen her in other films, but she was always Leia. She...
I finally saw Rogue One! And did I think it was better than The Force Awakens? YES. Was it better than The Empire Strikes Back? NOPE.
Any longtime fan of Star Wars knows what the story is about. A small band of rebel spies infiltrate the Empire's deadly battle station "The Death Star" on a mission to steal the Death Star schematics and deliver it back to the Rebellion so they can find out how to destroy it, leading up to the events of A New Hope. That's pretty much the gist of it.
I am a huge Star Wars fan, I've been a fan since I was 7 years old. I am what some would call an O.T. generation kid, but I also really loved the prequels and Jar Jar Binks as well, still can't figure out why some fan hate him so much, but this isn't about the prequels or Jar Jar, it's about Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
As a "O.T." kid I loved this movie, all the small call backs to A New Hope were awesome and they were done right, they were not "ham-handed" and they did not feeling like fan service to me.
