I may be the only person in the galaxy who is not a fan of Star Wars. I fell asleep in the original movie back in the day. I thought it was a bore. I’m not a fan of space movies or science fiction. I may have watched one of the sequels but I honestly don’t know for sure so it obviously left no lasting impression. I wouldn’t wait outside for a week for any reason but for this movie I just don’t understand what all the craziness is about.
I’m not really interested in the most popular movies. Blockbusters are just not my thing. I prefer art house movies. My daughter, Candice and I spent a weekend in February for the last two years at the Kingston Film Festival. We stayed in a hotel downtown and walked to the shows, sometimes seeing 3 and 4 movies in one day. It’s a 3 day affair and we would see 7 or 8 movies in a weekend. I really enjoyed that.
I do consider myself a movie buff. I try to see all the movies that get nominated for Academy awards or at least the movies that star the actors who are nominated. I’ve heard Star Wars will be nominated but I’ll skip that one. If it wins I will not care.
