Star Wars Saga Tribute: Fallen Army

While Killing TIme readers have a diverse number of interests, pretty much all of us are die-hard Star Wars fans.  I’m mentally exhausted by the events of the last few weeks and the arguing, so today, I honestly don’t want to do anything more than check out to a galaxy, far, far away, a place we all love.  Leoberry has created this epic tribute to the most intense moments of battle and sacrifice in all eight Star Wars films and did a fantastic job.  Watch and repeat.  Watch and repeat.

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)

Chewbacca Sings “Silent Night”; Merry Christmas Time Killers!!!!

I normally don’t post on Christmas Day, but I wanted to express my deep thankfulness to all my readers in a unique way that could only be expressed in song…..by a Wookie.  Thank you so much to the folks at How It Should Have Ended for creating this masterpiece that reminds of Christmas, family, Star Wars, and how profoundly empty our lives would be without the Internet to share these things.  God bless us all, every one, and Merry Christmas to you all!

My Favorite Scene: Star Wars Episode VII The Force Awakens (2015) “Jedi Steps”

It seems surreal that a year ago, we were all poised on a knife’s edge to see if Episode VII would be the Star Wars film we hoped it would be.  A year later, we find ourselves a little (ok a lot) more confident going into the first Star Wars spin-off film, but there’s still that tinge of nervousness that fans won’t be able to exorcise until we all see Rogue One for ourselves.  Even if it’s everything that we hope it will be, it won’t make nearly as much as The Force Awakens or be the global phenomenon that was.  The Force Awakens united a fractured Star Wars fanbase and opened a doorway for seeming infinite visits to a galaxy far, far away (which is fortunate as Disney definitely is going to give us one a year).  I lost count of how many times I’ve watched it this year before it even came to Blu Ray so picking a favorite scene is every bit as tough with this installment as it is in the other Saga films.  In the end, I chose the end.

Top 5: Scenes from The Empire Strikes Back (IMDB Top 250 #12)

Star Wars, Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back

Every month we take a look at a movie on the Internet Movie Database’s List of the TOP 250 FILMS OF ALL-TIME.  These are movies that transcend a simple “My Favorite Scene” column.  These are movies that are hard to just pry five gems from, but we do and examine the film overall.  We’re on our twelfth installment in this series.  Click on the links for The Shawshank Redemption, The Godfather, The Godfather Part II, The Dark Knight, Pulp Fiction , Schindler’s List, 12 Angry Men, The Good The Bad and The Ugly, The Return of the King, Fight Club, and The Fellowship of the Ring to check out previous installments.

Yoda, Luke Skywalker, Frank Oz, Mark Hamill, The Empire Strikes Back, Star WarsAt  #12, we come to the first of the (soon-to-be) eight films in the Star Wars franchise on the IMDB Top 250: the undisputed fan and critical favorite – Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back.  Appropriate timing, since we are now less than a month away from the return of Darth Vader in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and The Empire Strikes Back is undoubtedly the ultimate Vader film.
