May the Fourth be with you
It’s 4th of May… you know what that means… May the Fourth be with you. Yes, a nod to Star Wars, naturally. I’m nowhere near being a huge fan of Star Wars but I can appreciate it now having attended the South African premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Disney Africa sent me the DVD a few weeks back and I’ve been keeping it for this day.
Not being a Star Wars fan, the latest offering definitely piqued my interest. In January I watched the first Trilogy and quite enjoyed it – I need to watch the second Trilogy. What I quite enjoyed is all the detail that went into something when the time of effects and such were probably limited, they pushed the boundaries.
The main enjoyment factor were the cool stories. I loved how they fleshed out all the characters. I adored how strong Princess Leia is/was – you can see that type of strength in Rey now. One of my ultimate favourite characters is probably Darth Vader. Yup, I have a thing for the bad guys, haha.
I feel I need to continue watching these movies and give it a second watch to truly appreciate it. Being a huge Potterhead, people figured I’d have gotten into this. I quite enjoy the games so it’s not an entirely foreign concept but it can get confusing.
SO here’s to May 4th, I look forward to delving more into the Star Wars world.
