I use to be a huge Star Wars fan, but since Episode 1, not so much.

Yeah, now I just watch it for the Tie Fighter scenes and the atmosphere.

Other than that I lost track of whose sister's younger sister's friend in the future or past is visiting which Jedy to find dusts of the force behind some rock on an island.

5 minute synopsis

Thank you for sharing. This makes me want to do a Star Wars binge-watching movie weekend.

I have done that with the Alien and Indiana Jones movies in the past.

For that purpose I even created a home cinema setup with a HD projector.

There's no atmosphere in space! Sorry dad joke.

I gave in and watched both trailers, the tv show and the movie, seeing as it's going to be impossible not to be spoiled if browsing social media. The movie trailer didn't show much, I already saw the one image that was a big reveal. Will be subscribing to Disney+ just for the Star Wars tv show. Kind of sad the movie journey will be over this year.

Obviously, it has been a tough watch since they killed off Bib Fortuna.

Didn't watch Solo. Won't be seeing this in theater, and maybe not at all. The new ones don't feel like Star Wars to me.

    Solo was okay, but to me it didn't stand out as extraordinary in any way or fashion. 

    I'll go see this one in the theater, but I'm not going in expecting a masterpiece.  Just wrap it up and lets move on to something else in the SW universe,  like The Mandalorian.

Some movies you just have to see whether you want to or not.  This will be one of those for me.

Rogue One doesn't get a lot of love, but I really like that one. Have rewatched it a couple of times.

Rouge One is one of my favorites.

I grew up with Star Wars.  When I went to the first one, there were only 3 of us in the theater, my cousin, my sister and of course me.  It was one of the most amazing movies I have ever experienced. 

Now when I watch the trailers for then The Rise of Skywalker I admit I get pretty emotional.  They bring me back to that first one and watching it with my sister.  Cancer took her from us 19 years ago, thus the emotions.  How I wish I could watch this one with her.

So, I get the next best thing.  I am going to The Rise of Skywalker with my Sister's daughter and son, as well as with my kids.  We all are really looking forward to it. I know there will be tears, sorta Goofy how a movie franchise can do that but we, my sister and I talked non stop about Star Wars as kids.

     K-2S0 is possibly my favorite droid in the SW universe. 

     I wasn't sure if I'd like R1 due to the lack of Jedi, but I ended up really enjoying it.  I've spent a rainy afternoon or six watching this on cable.

Along with the Empire Strikes Back, this is my favorite SW movie.  I love the story lines on the Empire Strikes Back and Rogue One.

    • Day 2 Did my SKLZ club work out routine - solid 22 minutes again.  60 swings split evenly between the SKLZ Tempo Grip Trainer and SKLZ Gold Flex.  2 reps of each, 15 swings each rep with stretching the hamstrings out before and after each set as well as neck PT.  Finished with 15 hard baseball style swings with the Gold Flex to get some core work in.  Final heartbeat reading when done was at 110, up from 108 yesterday.  Good workout for the initial week of off season
    • Here's my first (final?) stab at groupings: Saturday @ Bedford Springs, 11:00: @iacas @Slim_Pivot @Divot Master Saturday @ Bedford Springs, 11:10: @Hardspoon @Hardspoon's genetic near-equivalent @saevel25 Sunday @ Royal New Kent, 9:00: @DaveP043 @DaveP043's better half @saevel25 @Divot Master Sunday @ Royal New Kent, 9:10 @iacas @woodzie264 @Hardspoon @billchao Sunday @ Royal New Kent, 9:20 @GolfLug Wife of @GolfLug (non-playing) @davechen Offspring of @davechen I've invited a guest, but he's unlikely to be able to play. However, if he's able to play, then CBS and FOX are going to flex @billchao to the 9:20 group. This is also true if the non-playing person (wife of @GolfLug) opts not to see the sights.
