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.

Hope Remains With: “Star Wars Rebels” Season 4 Official Trailer 2

As previously noted, the 3D CGI animated series “Star Wars Rebels” will end with Season Four. Yesterday, a second and longer trailer for the final season was released so let’s get our lightsabers ready to raise hell on the forces of the Galactic Empire one more time.

About The Show: Star Wars Rebels is an American 3D CGI animated television series produced by Lucasfilm and Lucasfilm Animation. Beginning fourteen years after Revenge of the Sith and five years before A New Hope, Rebels takes place during an era when the Galactic Empire is securing its grip on the galaxy. Imperial forces are hunting down the last of the Jedi Knights while a fledgling rebellion against the Empire is taking form. (thanks Wiki).

“Star Wars”: A Galactic Saga Hits Four Decades (1977-2017)

“A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away….” – It’s amazing to realize that this amazing Space Opera was released forty years ago on this very day. I don’t need to cite how those introductory words brought us to the flourish of the orchestrated soundtrack while the opening crawl began and filled us in about what was going on in this particular galaxy. The ride began here and what a ride it’s been. The film and its subsequent sequels have become one of the biggest selling franchises in cinematic history.

I’m happy to report that I saw this film not long after it opened in the cinema, and it was at the now shuttered Ziegfeld Theater in NYC with my Grandmother. She had taken me as a birthday present as the film opened up a few days before I would be celebrating. I don’t remember how long after it opened that we went but it was not open long for sure. I don’t have the ticket from the show as one wasn’t keeping that sort of stuff way back then, or at least I wasn’t – Yet 🙂 I loved the film and am pretty sure that I convinced Nan to take me again or the parents. I wasn’t seeing movies with my friends yet back in 1977. When did you see this film? Are you old enough to have said you saw it during its original theatrical run like I was fortunate to do? Hopefully you aren’t one of those folks that have never seen the film because I have heard that a few of you are out there. I’ll run down the cast in a moment but first – Behold the Original “Star Wars” Theatrical Poster. Magnificent isn’t it?
