A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, the most beloved, celebrated and influential movie franchise in history was launched. And pop culture would never be the same.
After the first trilogy (Episodes IV, V and VI) was done, we waited seemingly forever for the second trilogy (Episodes I, II and III), only to have George Lucas bury a piece of our childhoods under a confusing, steaming pile of CGI, trade federations, midi-chlorians, excruciating teenage love and Jar Jars.
Now, we’ve waited again for someone to right those wrongs. That someone being J.J. Abrams, the professional rebooter who resurrected the “Star Trek” franchise and who was brought in as a hired gun to make “Star Wars” fun again. He’s got the hearts of sci-fi nerds across the universe in his hands.
Well, with “Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens” opening this week, what better way to get yourself so excited that you could pull the ears off a gundark than listening to two scruffy-looking nerf herders like me and my pal Adam “Uncle Buck” Cormack talking about all things “Star Wars”? Nothing.
Although it’s been said, many times, many ways, May the Force be with you. Always.
