Let’s Talk About Star Wars

I recently watched Star Wars: The Last Jedi. I was hyped for this movie when I saw the first trailer, and then the theories. I was somewhat unsure of how I feel now that it’s been a few days after viewing it.

I’m going to try and avoid spoilers for this movie. However, I will be talking about Star Wars as a whole.

I didn’t really grow up with the Star Wars franchise. I was growing up around the time of the prequels, and I remember seeing recorded commercials for Episode I. I thought that Darth Maul looked like the devil and that Princess Amidala looked weird with the makeup and headdress.

When I met my ex, I started exploring the world of Star Wars. I fell in love! I have yet to see the prequels in full or episode 5 in full. I love R2-D2 and BB-8 and the other droids. It’s a great fandom as a whole.

So I can look at the franchise as a whole without the nostalgia goggles. I do see it as a plus, I’m not a movie critic whatsoever. I just think it’s good to be sensible when it comes to nerdy things, and not get upset when your theory doesn’t work out on the screen.

I just felt like I’d express my thoughts and opinions.

Talk to you again soon!
