What’s going on at the movies? Star Wars Vll … Concussion …

This is an aside from my usual here. Please don’t hate me if you’re a Star Wars fan. I have been a fan too, and …

I ♥LOVE HARRISON FORD♥.  As he has matured and improved over the years I love him more. He is such a great actor, and so easy to admire.

Han Solo

Having said all that – I was glad to learn he was doing another Star Wars movie; I was happy to sit in the theatre to see him … uh, the newest Star Wars movie, to experience what thrilling thing was going to happen on the big screen … but, well, to be honest, I came away annoyed and disappointed, and miffed, asking … what was all the hype about? 

Yes, Harrison Ford was in it as Han Solo – older and still his usual great. In case you haven’t yet seen the movie I won’t say what I was disappointed in regarding his role. Also, I found this movie to be even more chopped up than the others before it. Fast and jumping from scene to scene, and a little stranger in a different way than I was ready for, perhaps.

All in all, I suppose it was a good movie. I don’t think it was worth the HUGE record-breaking amount of money it pulled in, though. The movie ended in such a way that it left room for another one to come after it with younger actors obviously willing to continue the saga.

In closing, never mind me. As you will recall, I have a little trouble with change .. and I’m working on that.  🙂

Oh yes! PS:  What’s with Concussion starring Will Smith? I didn’t see the movie yet, just the previews/trailers and the Awards hype around it. Will Smith wasn’t nominated for an Oscar for his role as Dr. Omalu? Wow! I was sure he would … just from the little I’d seen of the movie.  Yep. Hollywood doesn’t make sense.  

Just my opinion.  What’s yours?

Also, I haven’t read Concussion or any of the Star Wars books. Have you? If so, which is better, the movie(s) or the book(s)?

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings!  🙂

How to write a Shakespearean sonnet with a twist

Last week I received an email from Publisher’s Weekly in which I learned of the opportunity to construct one’s own sonnet very simply and easily. And not just any sonnet — a Shakespearean Star Wars sonnet! 

Imagine that!

If you are a Star Wars fan, or a lover of Shakespeare’s writings, or just enjoy pushing buttons to see what happens … this is for you. 

Welcome to William Shakespeare’s Star Wars sonnet generator, originated by Ian Doescher. Check him out and his books.

All one has to do is answer four questions, deciding options for the sonnet, and then press the generator button. Ian says his math friend told him there are more than 2 quadrillion sonnets possible, given the way the generator works!

How cool is that!

I tried it and it’s fun and funny what you can do. Ne’er was there a Shakespeare sonnet such as these.

Have fun with it!  William Shakespeare’s Star Wars sonnet generator
