The Last Jedi | Movie Review

It has been a long time since I was able to see a movie during the opening weekend, but I got lucky this time. My dear mother purchased us tickets to see for my dad's birthday. As the planets aligned, we left the kids with the baby sitter and made our way to the theater, there was a giddy feeling that crept in. 

This was how me and my husband looked walking into the theater. All sparks and fire. Our view was kind of skewed from our seats. Second to the front on the right hand side. Whatever, we were there. 

And then the movie started...

There was some of this...

A little bit of this....

And a few of these cute little guys...

To me, the story was great. There was a lot of character development or Ray and Ben Solo. We found out a little more about what happened to Ben to turn him into Kyle Ren. Ray went in search of her past in a dark cave and Finn took a girl to a casino. Strange but true. 

The cinematics were great. I felt like they went back to the old school ways, where they let the acting and story speak for themselves, instead of the heavy CG shots where all you see is the backdrop and the awesomeness of the force is a second rate show. 

Some old friends stopped by the island, and the humor was great. In the serious moments, the characters would throw in something that would make me laugh, but not pull me out of the moment. It was really enjoyable. 

There was mention of Ray's parents which I know we all have be speculating on. The whole thing left me like this....

There is a lot of explaining to do, people. You can't leave me like this...

I really enjoyed watching the movie with my family. If it wasn't for the really annoying lady sitting next to us, who couldn't stop talking really loud, and the fact that she picked the one part in the movie that was totally silent to snort and laugh really loud, we would have enjoyed it even more. 

I give this epic Star Wars movie four stars...

IMDB Trailer
Review: If this isn't fantastic or what? I loved the book and I'm always a little leary about watching the movie after I loved the book, but this one was worth the watch. 
I loved the dystopian zombie world. A bacteria has taken over the minds of those who are infected and they crave human flesh, but the children born with this disease arm mostly alive. They can learn and love, just like any normal child. The only difference is, they still crave flesh.
There are so many twists and turns in the story. It kept me on the edge of my seat. It wasn't really scary like a lot of zombie movies so if you are not a big fan of horror I think you would be safe with the semi freaky movie.
5 out of 5…

What I'm Reading This Week | #WeeklyMenu Week #255

Its Monday again. Always Monday. We go through the week and them come back to Monday. They day that I have to myself, or wished I had to myself. Really I share it with everyone. Never time to myself. Never a quiet moment away from people. It makes it hard, since I need my quiet time to rewind and reset for the week. I don't get that. All I get is angry. How am I supposed to feel better if I can't have my quiet time?

On the other side of things, I finally sat down to write. It was a nice day. The sun was shining, there was a cool breeze and an open pick-nick table on my lunch break. Perfect weather for a mid day writing session. Got a lot done on my new manuscript. I'm hoping this one will land me an agent, but we shall see.

Guess what I' reading this week? Ok, you probably already know because of the picture. Exit West. It serves two purposes for me. Its on my shortest books I wanted to read list and also takes care of one of my bingo spots, a book about today's is…
