So, I have to confess to having joined in with the hype. My other half and our two kids were booked for the cinema on Christmas Eve to see…….
What else? Star wars!!!!
If anyone knows me at all, they’ll know I’m a complete sci-fi junkie. I loved the first three Star Wars film (we’ll not even discuss the other three). I love Star Trek. The Next Generation is my absolute favourite and I even wrote an episode myself where I was Captain Picard’s daughter. (I always felt as if he needed family).
I might even have slightly stalked the theatre Patrick Stewart was playing at with Ian McKellen in New York when I was there.
Now, I’m not a plot spoiler. Once everyone in the world has seen it we will discuss the plot at length. However, I did like the way the film played homage to the original three, not only with the original characters, but also with some scenes which closely mirrored the original films.
A new character might even have wormed his way into my affections. Meet Poe Dameron, the best pilot in the universe.
The atmosphere at the cinema was fabulous. We watched in 3D and my other half and youngest son definitely got into the spirit of things!
Happy New Year to you all!
Love Scarlet xx
