Star Wars – Episode VI. I’m Done Now, Yeah?

So, I’ve finished watching Episodes 4, 5, and 6 for the “Star Wars” trilogy finally… It only took me 30 years!

(Side note: I’ve been advised by many to NOT watch Episodes 1, 2, & 3 right now, which is good ’cause I’m so over “Star Wars” at the moment). And now I feel fully prepared to watch “The Force Awakens” come December. But what say ye?

Let’s get back to the task at hand…

Here are my favorite moments from “Star Wars – Episode VI: Return of the Jedi”:

-Ewoks. Freakin’ cute, little, Robin Hood-like teddy bears. I can haz one?

-Ewoks With Weapons. But like, I’d want them on my side in any fight.

-Baby Ewoks. I want to squeeze it!

-Ewok Shindigs. Parrrrtaaayyy.

Ok, ok. Enough about Ewoks. There were other things I loved…

-Speeder Bikes! I can haz one of these too? Zoom zoom. (Even cooler when driven by Ewoks.)

-Non-Incestuous smooching. PS: His breath must STINK after being frozen for that long.

-The Rancor Fight. That was pretty entertaining. And gross. And a little bit scary.

-This guys reaction afterwards. Awww. So sad!

-Han’s reaction when he finds out that Luke & Leia are twins. Yeah, dude. They made out.

I think I’m ready now for “The Force Awakens” in December!

You Betcha!

Anyone who spends more than 5 minutes with me knows that I have a pretty conservative, yet colorful vocabulary. I’ve even been known to throw a feisty “Son of a Biscuit!” after being cut off on the 405. So, when I watched “Fargo” for the first time, I felt like I had met my match in Marge Gunderson.

The contrast of the heinous crimes committed in Fargo, North Dakota and sweet Marge casually stumbling into crime scenes is what made the tone of this movie so confusingly awesome…

ME: “Oh, that’s a body in a wood chipper, but it’s hilarious how serious she is with her pregnant belly stumbling through the snow. Like, is it ok that I’m giggling at this right now?” 

I’d now like to quote some my favorite lines in “Fargo” from Chief Marge Gunderson herself:

1) “Oh my. Where? Yeah? Aw geez. Okay, there in a jif. Real good, then.”

2) Oh for Pete’s sake, he’s fleeing the interview! He’s fleeing the interview!”

3) “And I guess that was your accomplice in the wood chipper.”

4) There’s more to life than a little money, ya know. Don’tcha know that? And here ya are. And it’s a beautiful day. Well. I just don’t understand it.”

5) “Sir, you have no call to get snippy with me, I’m just doing my job here.”

6) Oh, I just think I’m gonna barf… Well, that passed. Now I’m hungry again.”

Thanks for the untimely and awkward laughs, Marge. And in the words of your weird ex-boyfriend:

Robin Hood: Prince of Cheeeezzeee

First of all, I’d like to express my disappointment for having watched “Men in Tights” before “Prince of Thieves”. I might have liked/understood MIT if I had known it was a parody of POT. (Probably not though, let’s just be honest.)

I heart Kevin Costner. Mostly because as a kid we had a beloved VHS copy of “Field of Dreams” and he was just so dreamy in that one. So, I was super stoked to watch this classic for the first time, because… Well… You know…

Mmm Hmm… Lest we forget Kevin Costner of the 1990’s.

You can imagine my disappointment when this movie ended up being one big ‘ole cheese fest. Don’t get me wrong, I like corny movies just like the next person, but this one was just too much.

Here are the cheesiest things about “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves” with reactions from The Sheriff of Nottingham:

1) The Soundtrack
As soon as little notes from Bryan Adam’s hit song started working their way into the film, I felt my gag reflex go off.

2) Alan Rickman
That guys just SCREAMS cheesy. And isn’t he supposed to be the menacing Sheriff of Nottingham? Why is he so funny then?

3) The Love Plot
Blech! Like, we all know what’s gonna happen, but why does it have to be so painfully obvious from the start. I mean, Robin Hood and Marian have to fall in love if Bryan Adams tells them to, right?

4) The One-Liners
So many. So, so many.

5) The Wedding
I’ve got nothing against Holy Matrimony, but does it really need to be done in the forest with Sean Connery officiating and Bryan Adam’s playing? …I’m done.
