    Hi! I didn't run at all last week. I am not even mad about it. I need to get a few miles in this week though before Thursday because I am getting some dental work done. I honestly don't know how long that will put me out for and I need to hit 800 miles for the year because I am so dang close to it.

    I am also 2 movie reviews behind on my Star Wars journey. Hopefully I can catch up with those later today!

    We took one last trip to Disneyland this weekend and gosh it is just so perfect at Christmas time. <3

    Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

    Okay, I am going to do my best with my thoughts on this because we have already watched two other movies after this one and I just haven’t had time to write my reviews.

    Prior to watching this movie, my co-worker had told me that him and his wife coined one of the droids as “d*ck-bot” because he was kind of just unpleasant. I didn’t know who they were referring to but the second he got on screen, both my husband and I were like THERE HE IS! (It’s K-2SO if you are wondering.) And I actually really enjoyed him and was sad when he died.

    Whoa the Death Star is like really big but why do we need something that can blow up planets, y’all? Also, how did they even build this floating “star” that is bigger than all the other planets they ever show? And who the heck funded it?? Materials aren’t cheap.

    The Blind guy was pretty awesome. I don’t remember his name. But he had some funny lines, like when they put a bag over his head to take him captive – “Are you kidding me? I’m blind!” I kind of wanted to know more about his story and if he ever really was a Jedi.

    Rogue One. And another name that just got made up out of thin air. I see a theme Star Wars, but at least I like this one.

    I had a lot of questions about the final scene when the transmissions were sent off because I was telling Brad that they were sent to Admiral Raddus (which is not what I said, I said that green alien dude) but then they ended with with Leia and I was confused on how all that happened. But I guess they just sent the transmission to everyone?...

    This movie was okay. Definitely sets you up for the OG Trilogy.

    Booze Pairing:
    Smooth Call by Bad Beat Brewing, which is an Oatmeal Stout aged in Whiskey Barrels. He tried to locate a beer by Rogue Brewing but couldn’t find one so just pulled this from the cellar. It was tasty.

    Star Wars: A New Hope (Episode IV)

    FINALLY on to the actual Star Wars movies! Y’all can watch Star Wars in whatever order you choose but I am very happy with how we have viewed them. I think it is important to the story to know the beginning first but I digress.

    And we are back to the PowerPoint transitions that I missed oh so much from Solo & Rogue One.

    I love R2D2. A lot. He is my second favorite character. Two things that he needs are Pew-Pews and hyper speed. Poor guy can’t defend himself and it super slow.

    Oh yeah, and how can everyone understand R2D2???

    Luke Skywalker acts just as childish as his freaking dad and he annoys me just as much as Anakin did.

    Han shot first. Confirmed.

    They did a great job re-creating the cantina at SWGE.

    I feel like they are trying too hard to make Han and Leia happen. There really isn’t any spark between them. Han is just really aggressive. But ooooof to that Bro and Sis kiss. LOL.

    I made @rteetz real angry when I was like “BUT WHERE DID OBI-WAN GOOOO?” I guess with the Force. Whatever that means. (I later find out what that means but at the time it as weird, okay?)

    Imagine how Vader felt killing the guy who didn’t even have the balls to kill him in the first place. Just left him there without limbs and stuff. Big Yikes OWK.

    Lots of pew pew scenes at the end and then BOOM. See ya later Death Star.

    @croach asked me if I thought that Chewy deserved a medal. Hot take: Chewy is an annoying character so I didn’t even care that he didn’t get one.

    Someone on Twitter had brought up the Jabba the Hutt scene and how he was a humanoid at first but then the scene was deleted from the OG trilogy and then added in later with CGI. It’s weird to clearly spot the CGI things they have added into these movies. I know they are old and technology has advanced so much, but I love the feel of them and think they should have just left them alone.

    Booze Pairing:
    Brad found a cocktail called a “Greedo Mojito”. I don’t know what was in it, but it was tasty.

    Your hot take needs to die. Chewie is best.

    Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back (Episode V)

    Okay so the movies starts off with Luke running into Harrold from the Matterhorn. And then we get delivered one of Han Solo’s best lines.

    I have been to this planet they are on and I have flown under the AT-AT’s feet. Thanks Star Tours!

    Let’s talk about Yoda. I had only met him briefly before and he was pretty normal. Didn’t really do or say much. Then we meet him again when Luke seeks out training to be a Jedi and WOW YODA IS WEIRD. But it was in that way that most characters like him are. When someone is looking for a specific kind of person in their mind and are given something unexpected. Or like when Simba meets Rafiki. Anyway, Yoda acted like a mix of Kermit the Frog and Grover (which makes a lot of sense because the guy who plays Yoda also did Grover in Sesame Street) and it was just weird to see.

    Yoda should have never given that kid his cruiser back.

    "That boy is our last hope"
    "No... there is another..."

    I hate that Luke calls Obi-Wan, “Ben”. So much. Stop it.

    My heart saaaank when I saw that Lando set up Han and Leia. But later he redeemed himself so that’s good.

    I got some continuity issues with the way that Han is put into the carbon-freezing chamber with his hands completely bound together but then when he comes back to his hands are up by his shoulders. I hate it. It’s annoying. And honestly it’s a thing I wouldn’t expect George Lucas to miss like that.

    Ah the famous I love you, I know scene. Han is so dang cocky.

    How about that Luke and Vader fight scene! My favorite part was after he was like “I am your father” Luke was like NOOOOOO. Then looked at him, looked down, and was like “Hang out with my dad? Nah would rather fall into this abyss, byeeeeeeeee.”

    This was my favorite movie so far.

    I love Han Solo. I need more Han Solo in my life.

    Booze Pairing:
    Location’s Wine Espana – This wine is soooo delicious. Go find yourself a bottle STAT. Obviously Brad picked it because of the E for the Empire.
