Habit forming is hard and just one take on The Last Jedi

This is my second post after a long time trying to get back in the practice of blogging regularly. I won’t lie, it is hard to get back in the habit of doing it when not having done it for a while. However, I have previously enjoyed writing if even just for helping my own thinking, and so I want to do this again to refine my own critical thinking and analytical skills. Also, I hope for it to be a constructive way to share some of my interests and fandoms and be a more thoughtful consumer of the media all around us.

This past weekend, on Saturday morning specifically, my wife and I got to go watch Star Wars: The Last Jedi on its opening weekend. However, we hadn’t planned to go watch it well in advance, and ended up having to scrounge for what’s left in terms of seats for what was a very packed weekend. Not to mention we try to go to a very popular theater in our city Raleigh, the Cinemark Raleigh Grande. As a result we found ourselves in the second row from the front – in those rows that people usually try to avoid.

Boy, was it kind of overwhelming to watch the two and a half hour long movie that close. I will abstain from sharing any spoilers or even much thoughts or opinions, because honestly I think I would like to watch it again before I definitely decide how I land in terms of an overall take. But on an initial level, I was glad to go watch it – and budget allowing, I’d like to watch it again soon. The only thing I do want to share from the movie is that Porgs are adorable (pictured above)!

But that’s all for this blog post – I want to focus on a small, simple goal when it comes to blog post length so that I can do it in a sustainable way. I hope that with time I will have opportunities to write in a deeper, more detailed manner. Thanks for taking the time to read this, and hope you will have a good holiday season if you don’t come across any post of mine in the upcoming week or so!
