The following is a list of minor notes and observations that came to me, during my recent viewing of “Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back”. I hope that you enjoy them:


NOTES AND OBSERVATIONS OF "STAR WARS: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back"

*Exactly who was in command of the Rebel Alliance base on Hoth – Leia or General Rieekan?

*What was Leia doing on Hoth with the Rebel Alliance military personnel? Why wasn’t she with the other political Rebel leaders?

*Ah yes! The ”I’ just as soon kiss a Wookie!” dialogue between Leia and Han. Charming, although slightly . . . childish.

*How ....

Come see Carrie Fisher perform live at Arena Stage in Washington, DC !

Wishful Drinking
created and performed by Carrie Fisher
September 5 through 28, 2008

Carrie Fisher is the life of the party in this uproarious and sobering look at her Hollywood hangover. The daughter of Eddie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, Carrier Fisher became a cultural icon when she stared as Princess Leia in the first Star Wars trilogy at 19 years olds. Forever changed, Carrie’s life did not stay picture perfect. A demanding career and single motherhood followed, as well as her struggle with addiction. It’s an incredible...

Colonel Russo and the rest of his squad landed just outside of Los Ingles, but the Colonel broke his leg.

Colonel Russo: *Sighs* At least we were able to avoid the swamps.
Rebel Doctor: Can you walk?
Colonel Russo: Maybe. It would be easier if I had something to lean on.
Rebel 55: Here Colonel. *Gives him a stick* I took this off a branch from a tree. It should be long enough for you.
Colonel Russo: *Takes the stick* It is. I appreciate that soldier. Let's move.

Anthony got free from the tree, but he still couldn't find Colonel Russo, or the rest of his team.

Anthony: *Leaning behind a stone wall,...

Song (Start at 3:22): link

The Rebels, and Republic were getting close to Naboo.

Anthony: *Sitting on a box*
Early: You know which beach you've been assigned to?
Anthony: Oh I'm not storming any of the beaches. I'm going with Colonel Russo's squad to capture Los Ingles. We're going to keep the enemy from getting reinforcements down to the beaches.
Early: Good luck Anthony.
Anthony: And may the force be with you too.

Gator walked into a Republic officer's club. He looked upset.

Gator: *Sits at the bar*
Waiter: Your usual Captain?
Gator: Yes.
Michael: *Walks over to Gator* Hey, how did it go?
Gator: Our attack run?
Michael: Yeah, did you kill lots of Tie Pilots?
Gator: I did, but we lost Honday.
Michael: What happened to him? Where is he?
Gator: In the middle of space, floating lifelessly around the galaxy.

Another Republic officer started playing a song on a piano: link

Michael: I don't understand. What happened to him?
Gator: He put his mask on, and his oxygen tank when his cockpit was shot open, but he wasn't able...

Over at the bridge. Lieutenant Olara and his men were still fighting Imperials while disassembling their bridge, until they saw the sight of General Rancor.

Lieutenant Olara: What the hell is a General doing here?
Rebel Soldier: *Stops the Metra near the bridge*
General Rancor: *Gets out, and looks at Lieutenant Olara* You are to put everything back to the way it was, so I can cross this river!
Lieutenant Olara: Out there? With all those Stormtroopers?
General Rancor: There's a group of brave soldiers, real patriots! Unlike you, they're not afraid of those hundreds of Imperials.
Lieutenant Olara:...

Cowboy, and Little Joe climbed the bell tower, and were right next to the bells.

Kelly: *On Oddball's tank with an RT97* Cowboy, you guys ready?
Cowboy: We are in positiion.
Kelly: We won't start moving in until you two start ringing those bells.
Cowboy: *Watching the Imperials*
Little Joe: Wait for it.
Cowboy: *Waiting a few seconds* Now.

Oddball and his squad found the bridge he needed to use to get across a stream. He was looking at it with a pair of macrobinoculars.

Oddball: It's still up.
Mordecai: *Laughing*
Y-Wing Pilots: *Flying towards the bridge. They drop two bombs, destroying the bridge*
Oddball: *Puts his macrobinoculars away* No it ain't. You see what them negative waves did Mordecai?
Mordecai: Don't look at me. I had nothing but positive thoughts about that damn bridge all day!
Oddball: *Puts his hand on his chin* It looks like we'll have to find ourselves another bridge.
Mordecai: And where do we come up with another...

A shipping yard was being run by the Imperials. There were a few Victory 2 Class Frigates being loaded with supplies from boats. Oddball, and his group were in a tunnel nearby with their three AAC-1's.

Oddball: Take it easy now, take it easy. *Stops* Okay hold it. Hold it! *Looks at the shipping yard* Okay, it looks like we arrived at the enemy base. We're gonna go for attack formation 3, and make a triangle. I'll take down the infantry, Mordecai you fire missiles at the frigates. Don't worry about the boats, those'll be taken out from the exploding frigates. Okay let's move.

And as soon as they...

Oddball and his friends were by a forest early in the morning looking at pictures of bridges. They had music playing from one of their tanks: link

Oddball: Yeah, here's a good one. We'll have to pass through an enemy base with a few frigates, but we have to.
Mordecai: Just to make it to one bridge?
Oddball: And fast. When the Empire rebuilds them at night, a few Y-Wings destroy them during the day.
Mordecai: Well then, suppose the bridge ain't there.
Oddball: *Annoyed* Don't hit me with them negative waves so early in the morning. Think that bridge will be there, and it will. It's a really beautiful...

Some where near Coruscant.
Year 57 BBY.

Electric sparks and laughter echoed through out the hall . The sweet smell of sweat tantalized the senses as did the dear face of her opponent.
Sota Slayer woke to that fading memory, as she trailed her quarry. Getting up from her command chair to recalibrate the tractor beam's settings, she caught a tear sliding like a thief down her cheek. Sota wiped the offensive liquid onto her jacket with disgust. If she'd never had any feelings her life would have been so much for the better. " But then who would you be?" The chuckling comment made her jump. Closing...

Hi guys, I finally watched this film with my younger brother, who is a dying fan of the Star Wars saga with his Singaporean classmate. Now, are you all ready for the review?

The Story-Line

Okay, we picked up from where the the Force Awaken taken. Rey meets Luke at the end, but refuses. Somehow, he reminds me of Obi-Wan Kenobi from the first three Star War Sagas.
As for Kylo Ren, he looks very hot when communicating with Rey. Anyway, I was also shock to see that he killed his master, he was very manipulative trying to force her into the dark side!
Finally, the ending was ambiguous as I did not...

A fleet of Rebel ships were close to the planet of Sullust. Inside one of the Mon Calamari ships, pilots were preparing their X-Wings. Other ships were carrying Y-Wings, and A-Wings.

Wedge: *Gives a high five to a Y-Wing* We're gonna do just fine.
Y-Wing Pilot: I copy red leader.

They both chuckled, and looked at a pilot in green.

Y-Wing Pilot: Must be one of the pilots for the new A-Wing.
Green-7: Hey. Ready to go?
Wedge: Yeah, you let me know how those A-Wings are. I might try one myself.
Green-7: Will do....

Song: link

Captain Smith: Gentlemen, as of this moment, all Imperials have been pushed away from Coruscant. We've done it. This planet is now ours!
Pilots: *Cheering*
Mary: *Walks over to Smith, and hugs him* I want you to have this. *Holding a box for the Captain* You're being promoted.
Captain Smith: *Opens the box, and sees his Major badge* Thank you.
Mary: Don't thank me, thank the General, but I would like to take you out to dinner. *Kisses Smith*

The song fades away as the other pilots cheer. Meanwhile on Chevrelium, things were not so pleasant.

General Kar: You have betrayed me for the last...

General Capta: Kenobi, you're free to return to Tatooine. Those Imperials won't be giving us anymore trouble.
Mary: They will, but we can handle it from here.
Obi-Wan: Good. Although I'm leaving, the force will be with you. Always.*Walks away*

Ten Star Destroyers were approaching the planet. They were joined by fifteen Victory 2-Class Frigates.

Lieutenant Von Hapen: Okay everyone, for General Kar! He's back on Chevrelium with Alaine, and the Colonel. Don't disappoint them.
Imperial Trooper: Launching all fighters! Press the attack!

Tie Fighters were joined by Bombers, Reapers, Strikers and Landing...

Five Tie Fighters were flying towards Coruscant.

Tie Pilot 94: General, we're approaching our target. Beginning reconnaissance.

What they didn't realize was that three Triumph's were closing in on them.

Simon: *Flying with Tom, and Captain Smith*
Captain Smith: There they are.
Tom: Good plan Simon.
Simon: Now we take them down before they can report anything to their comrades.

One of the pilots of those Tie Fighters however, was Max.

Max: We've picked up some bogies. Dispose of them.
Tie Pilots: *Turning around*
Tom: *Shooting a Tie Fighter*
Captain Smith: *Shoots down another Tie Fighter*
Max:...

General Kar held a meeting. Over 50 pilots attended the meeting.

General Kar: Here is the new plan to take over Coruscant. We will have three frigates enter the planet in an area where they won't be spotted. Fifteen pilots will parachute out of the frigates, and walk to the enemy air base. You will sabotage their ships, kill some of their pilots, then steal some of their ships to get back. That way, they won't be prepared for the next wave of frigates that come in.
Pilots: Yes sir. *Walking away to the frigates*
Alaine: *Walks into the room*
General Kar: Any word on Max?
Alaine: He's heading back...

"ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY" (2016) Review

When I had first learned of Disney and Lucasfilm's plans to create a series of stand-alone films within the STAR WARS franchise, I felt a little taken aback. I had felt certain that the new owners of the franchise would stick to a series of films that served as one chapter in a long story. But following the release of "STAR WARS: EPISODE VII - THE FORCE AWAKENS" and my slight disappointment over it, I was willing to accept anything new.

"ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY" was announced as the first of a series of those stand-alone film. However, I found...

Logan dragged the safe into the house, and walked towards a door.

Logan: *Knocks on the door*
Meghan: Just a second.
Logan: This can't wait.
Meghan: Yes it can.
Logan: No it can't! *Hits the door with the safe, and knocks it down. He sees Meghan laying in a bathtub with warm water, and plenty of bubbles*
Meghan: *Looks at Logan* The least you can do is take off your glasses.
Logan: *Puts the safe on the ground, and gets into the bathtub*
Meghan: *Hugs Logan as she pulls him towards her*

Song (Start at 3:31): link

Water splashed out of the tub, landing on the floor as Meghan moaned in pleasure.

Next day,...
