Star Wars

The new Star Wars movie comes out this weekend.  You will even love it or hate it.

This is the last Star Wars movie that the late Carrie Fisher made before her untimely death last year.  So it’s must see to see how they handle her death; or will they do more with the next one?

Star Wars is the most popular movie in history.  It had the highest box office draw to date.  With Stars Wars, it made George Lucas and Steven Spielberg very famous.  It also made stars out of Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill;  along with the other stars.

Before Star Wars, Carrie Fisher was just known as Debby Renalds and Eddie Fisher daughter.  She had her shares of problems but who hasn’t. She will be loved and remembered.  She had been diagnose with some form of mental illness as well; but she had talent as well.

It was very sad a year ago when she died and then few days later, her mother had passed from a broken heart.  Her and her mother were very close; and that is very rare in Hollywood.  Enough on Carrie Fisher, because it’s a different blog altogether.

Stars Wars first came out in the late ’70’s and early ’80’s.

Remember, when President Reagan was president is Nuclear arms treaty with the old Soviet Union was called, “Stars Wars.”  So he must had been a fan of Star Wars.

I, myself, preferred Star Trek; especially the original one with William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy.  Don’t get me wrong, Stars Wars was good too.

The original Star Trek, I don’t know how to describe it, was kind of more believable.  Remember, I’m no science geek,  so what am I to know about science fiction.  I do know this, I there are some science fiction I do like.  Especially if the story is good.

I think the reason why Stars Wars had lasted so long in popularity was because it was well written.  They kept you coming back for more.  Now that is a good writer.

Remember, Darth Vader wasn’t revealed to Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia’s father until the third Star Wars movie.  Also in that movie, it was revealed that James Earl Jones was the voice of Darth Vader.

Then in the late ’90’s they created prelude to Stars Wars.  It shown how Darth Vader had came about and how he became evil.  Hayden Christensen did an excellent job as an young Darth Vader.

Now most recently they continue the Star Wars saga and brought back Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford.

I yet to see the last Star Wars movie and would love to see this one just to see they handle Carrie Fisher death if not anything else.  I want to see how they keep the story going.

It’s like reading a good book.  If it’s well written, you don’t want to put it down.  You want to continue reading until the end.

This is what I hope for my blog, that people will keep on reading it and tells others about it as well.  As it said on my home page, my blog is my platform.
