Star Wars Magic

It’s one in the morning and we all just got back from seeing Star Wars, in English, three minutes from our house in Sarakham. That was pretty special. Overall, I liked it, and Max did, too. It was a little bit loud and scary for Mina (she’s only six).

A couple of notes:

  • I didn’t like the opening shot (it looked like crappy cgi)
  • It felt very Lord of the Rings-ish at times
  • I appreciated some of the atmospheres and small details like screen wipes that evoked the crudeness of the original
  • The girls were disappointed that Kylo wasn’t handsome
  • Fuck, I’m old.
  • Star Wars got its mojo back

What is true manhood?

When the kids come home, we talk about what they did at school that day and make funny faces.
