Solo: A Star Wars Story #starwars

Solo: A Star Wars Story is in my mind a good origin story for Han Solo. With all these movies they establish the back story for the things that happened in the Star Wars movies Episodes 1-8/9. The casting is superb with Alden Ehrenreich as a younger Han and we get to meet Chewbacca and Lando Calrissian played by Donald Glover. Also featured are new characters played by Emilia Clarke, Paul Bettany and Tandie Newton.

There is plenty of action and story to keep you entertained and connected to the greater Star Wars universe. I recommend that any open minded Star Wars fan check it out.

Happy Star Wars Day, May The Fourth Be With You!

Star Wars Day, May 4, celebrates George Lucas’ Star Wars. It is observed by fans of the media franchise. Observance of the commemorative day spread quickly through media and grassroots celebrations. The date was chosen for the pun on the catchphrase “May the Force be with you” as “May the Fourth be with you”. (From Wikipedia)

No spoilers here but the new Star Wars film The Last Jedi is a terrific film that does a good job of advancing the story and introducing new possibilities for the future. This is the last movie with Carrie Fisher in her role as Leia as she passed away late in 2016. I had forgotten how good Mark Hamill was as an actor. Daisy Ridley is a legit talent who is going places. There have been good reviews and bad reviews depending on who you talk to but for me I trust the storytelling here and I really liked the movie. You be the judge.

May The Force Be With You….oh go see this on a big screen, it is the best way to experience any Star Wars movie.
