A long time ago, in another country, there was a movie that everybody and his brother saw a couple of times. Then it came out again another two years after that in preparations for the sequel.
I mean, seriously. Can you even imagine that today? Movie theaters showing Godfather because Godfather II is coming out next year?
Anyway, I saw Star Wars in the theater the first time, then I saw it again the second time in 1979.
As such, The Last Jedi is a movie that could be described as a movie that I have been waiting for my entire life.
We are scheduled to see it on 12/17/2017 at 10AM or so at the fancy schmancy theater with the reclining seats and the reserved seating.
I have seen the teaser that has the thing that I understand is called a “porg” in it, but I know little else about the movie other than it’s the one that comes after the last one. Which tells me a handful of non-spoiler things such as: this is the one with the training section (in the same way that Attack of the Clones covered Anakin being trained as well as Empire Strikes Back covered Luke being trained), it’ll have approximately 20-30% action scenes, and the dialog will be vaguely clunky.
If you haven’t seen it yet but have a handful of speculations and thoughts about what’s going to happen, feel free to leave your musings in comments. If you have seen it, please *NO SPOILERS*. We’ll have spoiler-friendly threads next week. I promise.
So… what are you reading and/or watching?
