The Second Annual Star Wars Viewing ... With Lunch

Today I went to see Rogue One - A Star Wars Story in 3D IMAX with the Wife's niece.  Last year we went to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Rogue One is a much better movie than The Force Awakens, in my opinion.  The characters are interesting, there are some funny bits, and the action is top notch.  Unlike The Force Awakens, the story felt fresh and original and not another retread.

It was interesting to see two Computer Generated 'human' actors done so well.  If I hadn't known that Peter Cushing had died years ago I would have never guessed it was not 'real'.  Well done.

After the movie we continued our new tradition of going to the 11-Worth cafe for lunch.  We talked about movies and television and other geeky stuff.  I gave her a Star Wars themed birthday card (it was her birthday yesterday) that included a band that lit up and made Wookie and battle noises.

It was a fun time and, since the next Star Wars movie is expected to come out next December, it will be a tradition that will surely continue on.
