If youtraceback through the officialcannon of theStar Warstimeline, you may recall that the saga concluded when Lando Calrissean swooped in and demolished the second Death Star and ridded the galaxy of a tyrant.You could argue that it was a metaphor for the turning tildes brought about by the prequels to follow.In this case, the Death Star is Star Wars, which George Lucas labored for decades to buildonly to--with one perfectly aimed shot --start a chain reaction that lead to its ultimate destruction.OK, ... read more »
Hello guys! Is it me, or time flies too fast? Anyways, it has been a busy weekend for me, and I probably spent half of it fixing things for our wedding. But before I tell you stuff about it, let me share with you first how Paolo and I spent our monthsary last May 16, Thursday.
Luckily, I was invited by a good friend, Kath Estaquio for the block screening of Star Trek Into Darkness. It was like perfect timing for Paolo and I were contemplating what to do for our 104th monthsary. I was quite curious to w... read more »
Star Trek Into Darkness slows its engines to impulse power and plays too safe to the field; refusing to steer too far off course from 50 years of cannon or even from its 2009 predecessor. Despite some original patches, it bleeds into the original. It will face the same issue I had with the first two Harry Potters in which I'll forever struggle to recall which scene belongs to which movie. (Harry fights a snake in the first one, right?) For its first three quarters, the sequel appears to eclipse the orig... read more »
Spoilers aheadOkay... I just came back from finally watching Star Trek Into Darkness (though I would have preferred Star Trek 2B) after I've finally found a 2D screening. Can't stand these glasses anymore... anyway, on to the movie.In short: its good. Its fun, action packed, got a few (cheap) laughs out of me... but it could have been so much more. I hate it when I'm right. Well, not really, but in this case. I wrote a post a while ago about my expectations of the film, that they could have gone the rout... read more »

When I found out that today is Star Wars Day, it just made so much sense!
Today is also Matt's birthday and he is a huge Star Wars fan.
It's like it was destined to be or something.
Okay, maybe that's a bit overly dramatic but it is a pretty cool coincidence.
We are having a pretty relaxed weekend in celebration of Matt's birthday. Davis is visiting my mother so we have a kid-free weekend which is always nice.
We are planning a quiet dinner at home of marinated steak tips, potatoes, and g... read more »

Sometimes, though, our kids are not as receptive as wed like them to be when it comes to learning time. How would you like to find new... [Continue Reading] read more »
