Hi everyone! It’s Sunday evening, and I am sad that the weekend is almost over. But it’s been a nice one for sure!
This morning we had a pretty strong rainstorm, starting in the early hours… maybe 3 AM. The rain was hitting our bedroom windows very hard and it kept me up for about half an hour. But then it turned into a nice soothing gentle rain, and I fell back asleep. Hope the weather is treating you well, wherever you are!
As mentioned in the title, we watched a lot of Star Wars this weekend. We viewed Episode 1 yesterday, and today we watched Episodes 2 and 3. The first one was really awful… I had forgotten how bad it was… Episode 2 was a bit better, but still had a lot of goofy scenes, especially surrounding the love story.
I really enjoyed Episode 3, though! The special effects were really good and the connections to the later movies were pretty cool. It was neat to see the Rebel blockade runner! Also, the acting improved a lot… maybe it was because the dialog wasn’t as bad? Episode 3 was also where Obi-wan turned out to be a bad-ass (except when he got thrown like a rag doll by Dooku) and took down Anakin at the end. That was a pretty good scene and a good end to a decent movie. But now that we have watched the prequels, I’m really looking forward to seeing the original trilogy. It’s gonna be great!
