Star Wars

There’s a new Star Wars film out today.

The original films were a staple of my childhood, before video and DVD the only way to see them was in the cinema. My Dad took me to see all of them when they first came out. When the three prequel films came out, I took him to see them. When The Force Awakens came out he was too ill to make a trip to the cinema, so I bought him a copy on DVD. I don’t think he ever got a chance to watched it before he passed away though.
I’ve heard great things about the new film Rogue One, from people who’s opinion I trust, so I think I’m going to go catch this one in the cinema in honour of my Dad. Probably some time in the New Year, after the kids are back in school and I can go to a hopefully quieter day time showing.

    Great memories, Alan. My father took me to see Star Wars, too. I was ten years old. It was wonderful. I’m very grateful that I have a father who thought it important to make such memories with his son. I’m sure you feel the same way, and I think that going to see the latest release is a wonderful way to honour your father. I’d offer to go along with you, if we lived closer together!
    Best wishes,
