The Star Wars Universe


Well, I saw the third Star Wars movie (Revenge of the Sith) in theaters a little while ago. It was pretty good…well, at least it was better than episode I and II. So, Josh and I went out and bought the episode 4-6 trilogy. I saw them a long time ago, when I was too young to appreciate them.
So, we watched A New Hope today and I really loved it. I mean, it has so many excellent and crappy qualities all at the same time. My favorite part is the contrast and play between Hamil and Ford’s characters because they’re so different. It reminds me of my entire family being kind of tough and no-nonsense like Han Solo. And Josh is like Luke because he’s really caring and curious. So, I was drawn to both characters and they basically cracked me up when together (like seeing Josh and my family interact).
So, now I’m hooked on it. I’m going to watch Empire Strikes Back next. I think that was the one I liked the best when I was a kid. Probably because of all those little ewoks…I wished they were real so I could have one.
The funny thing is that every time I see something I like about the Star Wars movies, I tell Josh, then make him promise not to tell anyone that I enjoyed it. I don’t want people to think I’m a big nerd or on my way to becoming a trekkie (sidenote: I actually refuse to watch Star Trek for fear that it could potentially turn me into a trekkie…something I definitely don’t want to be). So, if you read this, you have to promise not to tell anybody that I actually enjoy the horrible wonderfulness that is the Star Wars movies.
P.S. When I initially posted this, I acidentally wrote “Hans Solo.” Josh informed me that he was not Norwegian, so I fixed the error.
