Top 5: Princess Leia Moments (Thank you, Carrie)

Princess Leia, Carrie Fisher, Return of the Jedi, Star Wars

Ask any guy who grew up with Star Wars, and we’ll admit it: we were all in love with her at some point.  She blasted Stormtroopers, piloted speeder bikes, commanded armies, and choked out a Hutt in the hottest outfit in film history.  She was the only girl action figure most of us kept around.  She was awesome, and we loved her for it, and part of us always will.  So until we’re all one with the Force, here are my five favorite Leia memories.

1. Aren’t You a Little Short to be a Stormtrooper? (A New Hope)

2. You Scruffy Looking Nerf Herder! (The Empire Strikes Back)

3. I love you.  I know. (The Empire Strikes Back)

4. Slave Leia Chokes a Hutt OUT (Return of the Jedi)

5. I Always Hated Watching You Leave (The Force Awakens)

Kylo Ren Reacts Reviews Rogue One: A Star Wars Story!!!

We here at Killing Time are huge, huge fans of Auralnauts hysterical web series “Kylo Ren Reacts”.  We got the fledgling Sith Lord’s opinion on the trailers as they came out (see below along with the now-classic SNL skit Kylo Ren: Undercover Boss), but it was only a matter of time before Kylo settled down to give us his VERY SPOILER FILLED thoughts on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.  We get his weigh in on the shots in trailers not making the final cut of the film, a shout-out to the fight picking dedication of Dr. Evazan and Ponda Baba, a formal apology to the Death Star’s welding crew, and GRANDFATHER!!!!!!  Yesterday, Star Wars moved most of us to tears as we lost Carrie Fisher, but Star Wars is, at it’s core, a joyful thing, and out of joy comes laughter.  So, while the hurt lingers, let’s laugh a little too.  That’s just as big a way to honor Fisher’s career as to mourn her passing.
