Hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday season! It’s all hands on deck in my household getting ready for guests and good cheer. I’m looking forward to relaxing around the home on this upcoming long holiday weekend.

I finally had the chance to see Star Wars VIII, and to keep it spoiler free since it is currently in theaters – I liked it a lot, I’ll have to ruminate on whether I rank it higher than Force Awakens or not. I want to say that Force Awakens was a more satisfyingly constructed story, but there’s an awful lot to like about The Last Jedi. You should go see it soon if you’re so inclined and are averse to spoilers, this is the type of movie that you can’t avoid that sort of thing with for long.
