Solo: A Star Wars Story was released last week. I was able to see the movie over the holiday weekend. Solo is the story behind how Han ended up with the Melinium Falcon and did the Kessel Run in 12 Parsecs. For those who are quite geekily inclined, a parsec is a unit of distance, not time, so in Episode IV when Han is bragging about completing the Kessel Run in under 12 parsecs you automatically assume it’s a measurement of time. They clear up the confusion on this by explaining it is a distance, and why no one else is/was willing to do the run in under 20 parsecs.

Beauty & The Beast Disney’s newest live action adaptation starring Emma Watson as Belle and Dan Stevens as The Beast has garnered a lot of media attention both good and not so good.

Friday Rogue One was released. This story is essentially Episode 3.9 in the StarWars franchise. My awesome boss once again rented a theater for the entire company and we got to see the movie on opening day for free! Yes I have the best boss in the entire world. I don’t say this because I think he will read my blog, as I doubt he will ever see this post. I say it because I do have a great boss.
I thoroughly enjoyed Rogue One, and although I am not of the opinion that it is one of the best Star Wars movies, it does rate above the prequels. My favorites are still The Empire Strikes back and Force Awakens. I definitely rank this a Must See movie at 4.5 star rating.
Yes, if you continue reading this post will contain spoilers. If you haven’t seen Rogue One, I highly suggest you not read this post further. Additionally, I highly recommend reading Catalyst (or listening on Audible) before seeing the movie as it is episode 3.5/3.7ish in the time line and explains much of what is missing in the movie, and gives you a better insight into some of the choices made by characters such as Galen Erso, Orson Krennic and Jyn Erso. It also gives you a good look at Orson Krennic our bad guy for Rogue One.

I have the best boss in the world. He rented a theater for Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens on opening day, and yes, I was there to see the movie. Now you’re asking yourself why I waited two weeks to post my review (or if your one of my loyal readers, maybe you’re not as you know I’m generally not the most prompt poster).
In this case, it was an intentional decision not to post immediately. I wanted to give people a chance to see the movie before I posted, as I couldn’t post my review spoiler free. If you haven’t seen the movie and don’t want a spoiler, you might want to stop reading here. I will try to not give major spoilers.

After young Riley is uprooted from her Midwest life and moved to San Francisco, her emotions – Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness – conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house, and school.
Live Action Cinderella. I wonder how many people (myself included) cringed when this was first announced? How was Disney ever to live up to the original with Mice that talk not to mention are transformed into Horses, Geese that become Coach Drives and Dogs for Coach Men. Not to mention Glass Slippers.

My husband, my niece and I all went to Maleficent over it’s opening weekend. The following week I took my mommy and baby sister to see this movie. I truly enjoyed the movie, as it takes the villain from Disney’s Sleeping Beauty, and shows her as more than just an evil witch who curses the Princess Aurora as an infant.
I recently went to see Disney’s newest Frozen with my Husband, and some family friends.
While I generally like Disney Movies, I haven’t fallen in love with one since probably Beauty & The Beast. Prior to seeing this movie I had been listening to Glenn Beck on the radio, and was agreeing with him that Disney was a dying company. They hadn’t come out with anything truly innovative or that made you love their company in a long time.
Went to watch Wall-e with DH today. It was a really cute movie, once you got past the you need to take care of the earth, or we will all live in space be fat, and Earth will have piles of trash higher than the buildings in New York City ‘Humans are evil” theme behind the movie.
This movie is the sequel to The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. I enjoyed this movie greatly, and highly recommend this movie to any fantasy movie buff. Continue reading
