To see Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, and Oscar Isaac locked in this touching embrace is truly beautiful. These three actors have brought me so much joy in the past few years and to know that it’s all coming to an end is bittersweet.

Here’s J.J Abram’s tweet.

But, it’s also exciting because the countdown to December 20 truly starts now. Oh my goodness, I can’t wait to see this movie. It’s going to be very awesome indeed.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day. May the Force be with you.

This Video Proves The Avengers Theme Is 100% Epic

Have you ever gone on a Youtube and run into a brilliant video that rocks your world? Well, that happened to me the other day. I went browsing on Youtube to find a video when I ran into one of the coolest and most hilarious things I have ever seen. A Youtuber discovered by another Youtuber that the classic Avengers theme is so downright epic that it can literally go to anything. So, he tested it out and after seeing this video I am a believer. Check it out. (And by the way, the video’s kind of long.)

This video almost has a million views for a reason. To see so many fantastic movies played to the incredible Avengers theme is so cool that I am utterly flabbergasted by the awesomeness.

My favorite portions of the video were when he played the theme to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles which was surprisingly epic and then of course, when it was paired to The Lord of the Rings. That was awesome!

I honestly hope this made your day like it made mine the other day and I thank you for reading. Have a beautiful day.

Throwback Friday: ‘The Last Jedi’ Is the ‘Star Wars’ Movie I’ve Been Waiting For

The Last Jedi, oh what a special film it is. To some, it is a travesty to the Star Wars franchise. To others, it is a breath of fresh air for something new. It’s kind of amazing to think that just a little over a year ago I saw this film for the first time. Now the countdown begins with Episode IX. Exciting! And that’s why, for this week’s Throwback Friday, I’m going down memory lane and looking back at only the second time I ever watched The Last Jedi. I hope you enjoy. 🙂

So I went to see The Last Jedi last week and when I came out of that movie theater I was kind of livid. At the time I thought Rian Johnson had royally messed up this wonderful story J.J Abrams had created. Nearly everything that I had theorized and predicted didn’t happen, which was saddening, but I wanted to see this movie again because maybe there was something that I had missed that the critics clearly saw.

When I walked out of that theater last night after seeing The Last Jedi for the second time I was utterly stunned. The movie was AMAZING! What had happened? Was I in the twilight zone? Was I in an alternate reality where this time around the movie was basically perfect? I couldn’t believe it. Rian Johnson had done it. He had pushed the story forward and made an incredible sequel that blew its predecessor out of the water.

The Last Jedi is not your typical Star Wars film. The Force Awakens was great because it was safely constructed. J.J Abrams took the model of A New Hope and made a nostalgic movie that everybody could get behind. There weren’t any risks taken in the movie, except for them killing off Han Solo. It was a fun film that introduced some lovable new characters and some interesting ideas but overall didn’t push into any unknown territory.

Rian Johnson didn’t do that. He took what we thought we knew about Star Wars and flipped it completely upside down which created a film that was destined to be controversial. I’ve watched Star Wars since before I could remember and so I’m used to a certain thing when it comes to this franchise. He did not make The Last Jedi by the rulebook and it was shocking. My brain had to grow and when it did this movie shined like no other.
