I finally finished watching all six of the Star Wars Movies. My dad had a goal to have a Star Wars movie marathon over the summer and we were able to finish 5/6 movies in the three days before I left for school. We started out watching the first one in black and white and color. How is that possible? Just use a broken VCR player. We only lasted a few minutes before we decided the VHS was not working. But it was funny watching and saying “C3PO is walking in snow, nope sand, nope snow” when the screen flickered between color and black and white.
I finished the last one (in order of release) on Saturday night. I am very interested now to see what Disney decides to focus on when they add the Star Wars section of Hollywood Studios. I also think it would be neat to be in Disney during one of the Star Wars weekends. Then again, I would love to experience every special event Disney holds. But now I am thrilled that I can finally understand more of the Star Tours area and know who C3PO is during the ride.
I really enjoyed the movies, but it was hard to watch such a popular series with the bits of information I had already heard about the series. So for example, I knew that Darth Vader was Luke’s father (which most people know) but I kept asking my dad questions about when was Luke going to find out and how did Darth Vader turn bad and so on. This also hints at my lack of patience but when there are six movies, it is hard to wait 7 hours for an answer in the third movie!
I picked up a pack of Star Wars Heroes playing cards at the Hot Topic store in the shopping outlets near my school and they are very cool because no two cards are the same. A lot of card packs repeat the photos across the deck but this one does not. I collect packs of cards and have about 20 something packs right now. I like to collect cards when I travel and it is also fun to have a wide variety of cards to choose from when playing rummy with friends.
I liked the 1st, 3rd, 5th, and 6th the most, but not in that order. And this is in the order the movies were released in, not chronological order.
I found out I have work on the Star Wars runDisney weekend, which further makes the point that I can’t sign up for the event unfortunately.
I hope everyone had a great weekend. Have an awesome Monday! (First day of school for me!)
