Solo: A Star Wars Story

Last Wednesday (6/20/18) and friend and I watched Solo: A Star Wars Story. Conversation and food followed, a great night all around.

Space. Western. Action.

This wasn’t a movie that I felt needed made, but leaving the theater I found that I was not only glad they did it but I wanted more – so mission accomplished.

Attack of the Clones

In early June we watched Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones; this was the first time for the kids.

Cool armor and vehicles, so there’s that

It had probably been about five years since my wife and I had watched it and it was tough going, but we made it through.

I found myself explaining a lot for the group, from methods of romance (?) to geo-political procedures, etc. It doesn’t have to be simplistic, but it does have to make sense.

I’m glad it adds to the universe, but I’m also glad we can move on.
