The much publicized upcoming link got me thinking about the optimal viewing order for the Star Wars saga. The logical approach is to view the movies in episodic order (which is how Cinemax plans to air it). But I'm not so certain that this is the best way to watch Star Wars.

What follows is a rundown on the only four *viable* ways to view the Star Wars saga that I can think of. Sure there are other viewing orders, but these are the only ones that make sense from the standpoint of storytelling and continuity.

Here goes:

Method 1: By Order of Episode

This approach is clearly the viewing order intended...

The following is a list of minor notes and observations that came to me, during my recent viewing of "Episode II: Attack of the Clones". I hope that you enjoy them:



Notes on "STAR WARS: Episode II – Attack of the Clones"

*It is interesting that the story starts out with Coruscant – the seat of the Republic’s power – covered in a shroud of fog. Was this an allegory of the Republic’s impending doom? Or a sign of hidden secrets within the seats of power?

*Why did the Jedi believe they would have to protect the Republic in a military action, if the Separatists broke away? It seems as if...

Captain Needa, and Major Lesden were talking to Colonel Jörgenstien.

Captain Needa: Since General Ozzel isn't here, perhaps you can talk to Lord Vader in Endor, and see if he'll send us anymore tanks.
Colonel Jörgenstien: Well thanks to General Ozzel's silly assumption of an invasion in Cenell, we can't get any tanks to defend Champalla. I just called Cenell, and they believe Han Solo is leading an attack.
Orrian: What? Last I heard, he was in Hoth.
Colonel Jörgenstien: You see my point? You should not have put General Ozzel in charge.
General Ozzel: *Walks into the room* What is going on?
Colonel...

That night, Kelly and the others were ready to start their trip. They had a map on the hood of Kelly's Metra.

Kelly: The intersection is half a mile down the road.
Big Joe: What do we do once we get there?
Kelly: We go left. We'll have more enemies firing at us, but it's quicker to Empyra.
Big Joe: You planned it all out, didn't you?
Kelly: Bob's going to provide orbital strikes for us once we get near them.
Big Joe: You actually trust Bob to give us covering fire?
Kelly: In about three minutes, yes.
Big Joe: What if he doesn't?
Kelly: He better. *Checks his watch* Time to move.
Big Joe: Right. *Walks...

John, and the others walked into the bar. A band was playing music: link

The six men took their coats off, and put them on a coat hanger.

Jott: *Sits at a table with Thomas, Barkley, and Christianson*
Morris: *Walks to a counter with Morris. He looks at the bartender* Two beers.
Bartender: *Goes to get the drinks*
John: *Looks around the bar, and sees Heidi*
Heidi: *Serving drinks to two Imperials*
John: *Sees another table with three officers* Excuse me.
Morris: *Watches John go to the table*

One of the officers had black hair, and stared at John.

Star Wars: In Concert is coming to Grand Rapids, Michigan on Wednesday, July 14 at the Van Andel Arena at 7:00 p.m. The production features a full symphony orchestra and choir, accompanied by specially edited footage from the films displayed on a three-story-tall, high-definition LED super-screen – one of the largest ever put on tour.

Prior to the show, the real costumes worn by the actual stars of the original films will be on display. Is anyone interested in going? I heard this was an amazing production.

On the planet of Feytal-after the first battle of Geonosis.

Ticara bowed low to the Keeper, the old man came forward and placed a loving kiss upon his only remaining heir. His grand-daughter." What brings our gracious king's newest passion to see an old man?" Sicar saw the disgust on her face as she rose up from her bow. " When?" It was a question all to often asked these days, one that he had no answer for as of yet. He looked out the window at the cherry tree that had grown so well in these 35 years. Under it the sad bundle that the Imprinted one had asked to bury in their garden. With only...

Sandy Point, Moana.

Rebel 28: *Docking his boat at a harbor*
Rebel General: *Standing on another boat with a hundred other Rebels. He checks his watch* Raise flag.
Rebel 13: *Raising the Rebel flag*
Rebel General: Now.

A band was playing this song: link

Rebels: *Passing the band on another boat*

Up in the sky, two Rebels were surveying their new base in a recon ship.

Duya: *Flying the recon ship* This is it. Our new home.
Rollin: We should have stayed in Rydellia where we belong. I made a mistake in pointing that out to General Ommer.
Duya: *Looks down and sees a line of X-Wings parked next to each other*...

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...

Song (Start at 1:28): link

Morris: *Laying down, looking through his macrobinoculars at the castle*

He looked to the left, and saw a cable car station.

Morris: *Continues to look at the castle*
John: *Walks down the hill, and lays down next to Morris, also looking at the castle*

Stop the song

Morris: Take a look down there. *Points to an area on the ground below the castle*
John: *Looks at an Imperial Troop Transport passing a fence. It passes an astro droid with small cannons attached to it's side* That little droid has powerful cannons.
Morris: Yeah. Astro droids with cannons, a guard tower, and...

So Luke, Leia and Lando Headed for Tatooine. It was a such a ways out from other star systems. It was not even part of the Republic.

Once they reached Tatooine they knew they could not just barge into Jabba's Palace. Luke remembered where Ben's old house was beyond the dune sea. They went there to change into clothing and armor that would disguise them.

Then Luke headed back to the Dagobah system while Leia and Lando headed for Jabba's palace. " Please Hurry back Luke. I don't want anything to happen to you too...by the way, is something wrong. You look so shocked and scared" asked Leia worried...

After that encounter with Vader. Leia ran outside to wait for her father. " Im sorry for your loss-what does he care!" she fumed to herself.

Over the next 2 years things got even more ugly between Leia and Lord Vader as she continued her mission for peace and justice; while Vader continued to ensue fear into the hearts of every creature in the galaxy.

Leia did manage to finally get the written details of the Death Star in hope for a weakness. Her ship the Tantive IV was on route to her home planet from receiving the stolen information.

"MY PROBLEM WITH KYLO REN"

Kylo Ren has to be THE MOST overrated character I have ever seen in the Star Wars saga. I am amazed by how so many fans have gone out of their way to put this guy on a pedestal. My personal disgust for this worship has nothing to do with him being portrayed as a villain. There are plenty of other villains - within the saga or not - that I actually find interesting. My problem with Kylo Ren is that I do not find him either interesting or well written.

I will start this article with a question. What was the reason behind Kylo Ren aka Ben Solo embracing evil? What was...

Kylo Ren & Rey
Hi guys, a couple of days ago, I watched the Rise of Skywalker which was the final chapter of the new Star Wars trilogy and it coincide with my younger brother's 29th birthday. Ready?

The Story

At least that the story is not predictable like the second one, and it is very straightforward too. I was also taken aback that Rey is a descendant of Emperor Palpatine and at least she did not follow into his path despite that she has nightmares of being on the dark side!
Rey also got her Happy Ending when she is a true jedi in her own right.

The Characters

Speaking of the characters themselves, I was...

" I have twins....God Help me"
Lord Vader watched as the Millennium Falcon flew away and as the fighter pilots in their ships all flew away. He knew one of them held his son Luke.

Frustrated that they did not reach the rebels in time, Vader took his anger out on Captain Needa. " You lost the FALCON! YOU TOLD ME WE WOULD MAKE IT IN TIME!" Vader said angrily.

" I...I thought we..we were stealthy enough to catch them by surprise...I'm sorry my Lord..NO..NO PLEASE D-!Ahh ahh" screamed Capt. Needa. Vader started to stranglehold him until he passed out.

" Hmmm...Yes. I'm sure you are. Apology excepted Captain Needa" said Vader with...

Salope's only weapons were several charges in a bag. The others that came along with her hid in a bush as she tried to get rid of two stormtroopers standing on guard.

Salope: *Walking towards the stormtroopers*
Stormtrooper 69: *Turns around* Hey, what are you doing?
Salope: Crossing the river. I'm trying to get back to my farm, over there.
Stormtrooper 53: That farm's been abandoned for years. You're under arrest for trespassing.

Naboo, one year before the events of A New Hope.

In one section of the planet, it was littered with destroyed vehicles, ranging from tanks, speeder bikes, and even a few AT-ST's. Not far away, was a damaged Tie Fighter, next to an old Arc-170. The radio was still on in the 170.

Announcer: This is the Coruscant Broadcasting Service. Here is the news. In an isolated part of the planet, a group of Generals said, with Naboo falling into the hands of the Imperials, The Battle of Coruscant, is about to begin....

So, my friends and I are nerds. I mean we love Star Wars, Harry Potter, Marvel, etc. Anyway, I went with one of them to see the seventh movie. It wasn't very good in my opinion (I mean it wasn't as bad as some movies but it was pretty bad). If you liked it and are reading this anyway, please don't be offended. I am very critical of movies. I expected a lot out of this film, 'cause I love Star Wars, and I wasn't very impressed. But, seriously if you liked it and still want to read this, don't be offended. That's not why I wrote it. Anyways, these topics will be whatever pops in my mind; not...
