41 Random Things I said and thought during my first viewing of Star Wars
By, Raychel Chumley
Somehow I managed to make it 33 years without seeing the Star Wars movies. I know. I know. I’m not even sure how that happened. When my husband found out a few weeks ago that he was married to a Star Wars virgin he just couldn’t even. Seriously.
I didn’t try to never watch the movies. I just never had the opportunity to. I was pretty stocked when my hubby said we were going to have a Star Wars movie marathon during his days off.
Here are the 41 random things I said and thought during my first viewing of Star Wars…
- Why can’t you download these from iTunes? Seriously Steven Spielberg.
- It’s 9 pm and I am at Wal-Mart looking for Star Wars. I even put pants on…these movies better be worth it. ONE copy of movies 1-6 at Wal-Mart. Score!
- “OMG! Why are these words moving so fast across the screen. Pause it!” (Major eye roll from hubby)
- “Do all Padawan learners have to wear the same outfit and hairstyle?”
- “Qui-Gon kind of seems like a douche.”
- Jar Jar Binks is not nearly as irritating as everyone said. (I couldn’t say this out loud or my husband would kill me.)
- “What?” (I said this a lot in episode 1 when Jar-Jar was speaking…I guess he was annoying.)
- “Anikin has zero control. He is kind of a big baby.”
- “That girl is not Natalie Portman. Doesn’t Natalie Portman play Queen Amadala?”
- “This is going to be a problem.” (Padime and Annikin)
- That guy under the hood is the senator.
- “Does that actor every play good guys?”
- That dress is gorgeous.
- “That ass hat is using Annikin”
- “Annikin stop making bad choices!”
- “STOP KILLING the Jedi. Stop. I’m turning this movie off.”
- “He killed the younglings? What kind of movie is this?!”
- “What. The. Hell. He made her die of a broken heart.”
- “If this movie doesn’t end with some kind of resolution or redeeming quality I’m going to be pissed.”
- “Luke is kind of a whiney baby. Just like his father.”
- Han Solo is super cute…Han Solo is a jerk. Reminds me of Brandon.
- “I would have been in love with Han Solo in the 70’s.”
- “I can’t believe the costumes and sets from these movies from the 70’s…this must have taken forever to put together!”
- “When do we see the Millennium Falcon?” (I asked this a lot too…)
- Yoda is way creepy looking in these movies.
- “I think that robot in the garbage room is the model for Wall-e”
- “Those laser guns can’t hit the broadside of a barn.”
- “What’s a death star?”
- “I though Darth Vader only stood around breathing in these movies. I didn’t know he actually talked and acted.” (Major eye roll from hubby here, too.)
- “Yoda must be so mad at the Skywalker family by now.”
- I wonder if that hairstyle gave her headaches.
- “I know it’s probably blasphemy but I think I like the story line in episode 1-3 better.”
- “HE SOLD THEM OUT! Why is everyone a prick in this movie?”
- “’Luke I am Your Father’…I was expecting that to be a bit more dramatic of a delivery.”
- “Search your feelings must be the signature line of this movie.”
- Jeez Luke. Get a grip. He’s a whiney baby like his dad.
- “It’s always awkward when you realize you kissed your brother.”
- “I knew she liked Han Solo. Do they get married?”
- I thought that the Ewoks would be cute. But they are actually a little creepy.
- “I knew Darth Vader had redeeming qualities. Yay Annikin!”
- “I don’t care what my brother says…I liked the ending with Annikin in the shot.”
My husband said…
- “Watch the movie.”
- “I don’t remember. Watch the movie.”
- “I’m not telling you anything else. Watch the movie.”
- “If you don’t stop talking I’m going to turn off this movie.”
Wow. What a movie! Oh my goodness!! I can’t wait to see number 7!
I hope this post gave you a good laugh but also reminded you how important date night is. It doesn’t take a lot of work to keep the fun and romance alive in your marriage. This week I challenge you to have a date night at your house too! Grab a classic movie you’ve never seen, a few blankets, some snacks, and a bottle of wine and snuggle in for a little fun and romance.
Editors note: I’ve been informed that the Star Wars movies should be credited to George Lucas and not Steven Spielberg. Sorry George. 😉
