I'm about to go to bed after spending around 2 hours watching extra features from the Star Wars DVD. I've got tickets for the noon showing of the movie tomorrow. I'm not sure I'm ready for this, I don't want to go to sleep because I don't want to wake up. I don't wake up because that would mean the suspense will come to an end. So will the Saga.
I'm not going to write too much. A thousand better, or at least less sleep depreived, writers have probably already said all that can be said about this. Many of them have probably seen the movie. I won't pretend to be able to add anything.
Our generation is sometimes referred to as the "Star Wars" generation. We've watched these movies a thousand times, and yet we keep watching. Not only watching though, we keep reliving these movies. Yelling out the lines with the characters. Cheering the heroes and even the villians. We know how it all ends. We wouldn't have it end any other way.
Tomorrow will be different. I won't know all the lines. I won't know what happens. Tomorrow I'll watch a Star Wars movie for the first time for the last time.
Tomorrow I hope to put up my feelings of the film as well as memories of how Star Wars has affected my life.
Until then: May the Force be with you and geek on.
