Opening: “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” In Theaters Everywhere (12/15/2017)

It’s time to return to a galaxy far, far away as “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” opens in theaters everywhere. How excited are you for this one? Pretty darned excited I’m willing to say. Let’s review the poster, some casting and a premise that I came up with on the fly 🙂

The Premise: The film continues along with the story that was begun in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and greater expands upon the Intergalactic conflict that was found taking place between the tyranny of The First Order and The Resistance.

The Cast/Characters:
Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker
Carrie Fisher as General Leia Organa
Adam Driver as Kylo Ren
Daisy Ridley as Rey Jakku
John Boyega as Finn
Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron
Lupita Nyong’o as Maz Kanata
Domhnall Gleeson as General Hux
Anthony Daniels as C-3PO
Gwendoline Christie as Captain Phasma
Andy Serkis as Supreme Leader Snoke
Benicio del Toro as an unnamed charter
Laura Dern as Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo
Kelly Marie Tran as Rose Ticomber

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’m pretty excited about this one despite not really finding “The Force Awakens” to be all that great. I enjoyed that one enough sure, but I didn’t love it like some of my fellow geeks did. My hope is that this film mirrors the historical practice of the second in the series being so good. Let’s face it, “Empire Strikes Back” was superb and maybe even better than the first “Star Wars” while “Attack Of The Clones” was far superior to “The Phantom Menace”. My issue is going to be like evading enemy TIE Fighters since so many of my close media discussion friends are all seeing the film on the night it opens or the next day and I cannot get there until next week. Hopefully I can skirt any information about it until next Wednesday which is the preferred day that I’d like to go. I might even need to turn off my personal Facebook for a couple of days to be on the safe side. What do you readers think about this opening? Is it the film you have been anticipating the most this year or was it one of the other ones like “Thor: Ragnarok”, “Wonder Woman”, “Spider-Man: Homecoming” or maybe even “Justice League”. Let me know in the comments section below and please NO SPOILERS if you have seen it. Those folks can just say they loved it or didn’t. Once I get to the theater, I will map out a movie review that will be as spoiler free as possible. May The Force Be With You my readers.

Opening: “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” (12/18/2015)

Logo - Star Wars The Force Awakens

The wait is over at long last, you are no longer anxiously awaiting the continuing adventures from a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away because the 7th installment in the “Star Wars” franchise arrives with “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” which opens up in more theaters than you can possibly imagine today. Now there was an LA premiere a couple of days ago and I am sure some members of the media were at exclusive screenings (you lucky ducks) but the focus in on the masses of humanity that are slavering and checking their watches to coordinate their own attendance. Check out the poster, a reminder of the premise for those under a rock and the cast before I return to offer up some additional thoughts on it all.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Considering I’m one of the people that fell into the smallest factions that did NOT take advantage of purchasing tickets when they went on sale a couple of months ago I feel that I am not going to be able to see the new Star Wars until February or March based on the demand. I’ll ask those readers who might somehow feel compelled about commenting in on this post about it to leave it to stuff along the lines of “I loved it, its great” or “OMG that made me want Jar Jar Binks back” as opposed to any significant plot developments or deeper secret reveals. I’ve had my hands full with all the constant spoilers of “The Walking Dead” to contend with and don’t want this guilty pleasure ruined for me as well. So what are your plans this opening day? Will you see the film at some point today or are you one of the lucky ones who managed to see it in some kind of exclusive screening or in Los Angeles the other day? Whatever the case may be let me know in the comments below. Perhaps I will try and sneak an early matinee on a day when I am hoping no one else will be hitting the film before my myriad of Fellow Facebook Geeks force me to turn off my profile for a month. May The Force be with you…..always.
