Continuing my stunningly superficial analysis of the Star Wars films on Blu-ray... (St. George in heavenly Marin preserve us.)
A New Hope
Princess Leia looks like my great-grandmother. This is in no way intended as an insult. She really does. See?
“You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.” Mos Eisley spaceport = Las Vegas
A step-by-step hi-def, big-screen, slow-mo analysis definitively proves it. Greedo shot first.
“She may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts, kid.” The Millennium Falcon and I have that in common.
“The Force” would be a much cooler sci-fi basis for a hipster celebrity pseudo-religion than “Dianetics.” Someone should look into that...
Nostalgia for my misspent youth aside, still one of the best films I've ever seen.
The Empire Strikes Back
Claymation! Muppets! I <3 the 80s!
Han Solo is a total nerf-herder. I could not agree more.
Boba Fett = Best action figure ever.
How come Billy Dee Williams and William Shatner never did a buddy movie together? Seems like someone missed an opportunity there...
Return of the Jedi
There should be a support group for the many women who still have body image issues because of early exposure to Princess Leia and her metal bikini. (Not a single freckle. I could just smack her...)
Ole Miss came so very close to being the coolest University ever. Long live Admiral Ackbar!
Flying motorcycles! Living teddy bears! Redwoods! Can I live on Endore? (I dream of one day moving to Humboldt County, going all Col. Kurtz, and leading my own Ewok Army of Darkness.)
I love a happy ending... especially if there were a whole bunch of really cool explosions preceding it.
Today's lesson: I am not nearly as deep or intellectually-minded as I once thought I was.
Next: Let's see what's next on the Netflix queue: Thor, X-Men First Class, Pirates of the Caribbean 3...
