Star Wars Re-Watch (Ep V + VI)

Long have I considered Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back to be my favorite Star Wars movie. But this time around, I have to be ┬áhonest…Return of the Jedi really pulled out in front. That’s not to say that I don’t consider TESB to be the best of the Star Wars films, becauseContinue reading “Star Wars Re-Watch (Ep V + VI)”

Star Wars Re-Watch (Episode IV)

Obviously the Force is strongest with the original trilogy. No one in their right mind would try to argue otherwise.

I was always disappointed when I heard it and Star WarsContinue reading “Star Wars Re-Watch (Episode IV)”

NITC Book Club: Star Wars Edition

This week I’m reading the first book in The Jedi Academy Trilogy by Kevin J. Anderson, Jedi Search. Don’t forget (as if you could) none of these are official canon anymore.

Nerd in the City Book Club

The Truce at Bakura By Kathy Tyers Granted, the Star Wars Expanded Universe is no longer considered cannon. But that doesn’t erase the wonderful stories that came out of it. The Truce at Bakura picks up after Return of the Jedi. Luke is, seemingly, the last Jedi in the Galaxy. Vader is dead and everyoneContinue reading “Nerd in the City Book Club”

25 days of (nerdy) Christmas!

“May the joy be with you!” Day 11: Wookie-ookies and Bantha Milk Santa is the coolest. He brings presents, has a magic sleigh and has hundreds of adorable elves working for him round the clock. So if Santa is the coolest, then it stands to reason that Santa’s favorite movie is probably Star Wars. AmContinue reading “25 days of (nerdy) Christmas!”
