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.

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.

Introducing the 2016 Presidential Candidates and their Star Wars Counterpart.
The field is narrowing, and we are coming closer to determining who the parties will choose as their candidates for the 2016 US Presidential Elections. I will present my comparisons on candidates still in the running (with an exception for the Republican Party where Ted Cruz, John Kasich, Ben Carson and Marco Rubio will have comparisons as they were the most prominent Republican Candidates who dropped out).
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.
