The 12 Days of Star Wars: Day Eleven

I woke up this morning and drank my coffee out of my Star Wars cup. I showered and got dressed in my Millenium Falcom t-shirt. I put on my Empire Strikes Back vans and now I’m waiting for my brother-in-law to pick me up and take us to San Francisco to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We will be in line around 4 hours early, my and my fellow nerds. I am in full movie geek mode and couldn’t be more stoked. But this week has been...

The 12 Days of Star Wars: Day Nine

Day Nine of the Flick Nation “12 Days of Star Wars” continues as Don boldly goes where no man, woman or child should ever have to go: he watches The Star Wars Holiday Special. People love to razz “bad” Star Wars movies to a point where it’s beyond the norm. The whole geek cry of how the prequels “raped my childhood” is a pretty great example of that.

Here’s my ranking from favorite...

The 12 Days of Star Wars: Day Five

Day Five of the Flick Nation “12 Days of Star Wars” continues with a look at that snuggly, cuddly genocidal maniac, Darth Vader. I sometimes like to look at toys when I’m in a big box store. Call it force of habit or flirting with the irresponsibility of buying crap I really don’t need but it’s kind of fun. It’s also a nice peek into the pop culture mood of what kids (and let’s be honest, hella nerdy adults) are into these days when...

The 12 Days of Star Wars: Day Four

Day Four of the Flick Nation “12 Days of Star Wars” continues with a personal question: when was your first time? Today is Thursday, December 10 which means there’s exactly 7 days until Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters. I got my ticket the day they went on sale and by this time next week, I’ll be waiting in line with, what I’m guessing, will be a few hundred like minded individuals. As I mentioned in the initial post in our...
