I think we can all agree that the movie we saw over the weekend (and again on Monday…and maybe even once more since) was a fantastic Star Wars movie. But it was just that: A Star Wars movie, warts and all. Nothing more. Whether we want to admit it or not, all Star Wars movies have warts on them. The problem is that when we talk about the original trilogy, we blind ourselves to them. And when we talk about the prequels, the warts are all we allow ourselves to see.
With that in mind, let me say this: All I want for Christmas is for this to be the Star Wars trilogy that we can all have an honest, fair, and balanced conversation about.
Oh, and I guess the health and happiness of my family and friends. Peace on Earth, good will to all men and women and all that.
Wishing you all the best, the merriest, and the nerdiest this holiday season.
*Sorry for the prolonged absence. I hope to see more of you all soon!
