Star Wars: Let's Keep the Expectations Realistic

This should be declared “Star Wars Week”. If someone hasn’t done that already, then I’m declaring it despite the fact that I do not have the clout nor the viral influence to make it official.

Unless you have been living under a rock, you should have heard that the newest teaser trailer has been officially released. One of the local news anchors said he feels like he’s 9 years old again after watching this trailer, and I have to agree with him.

Be that as it may, it still doesn’t change the fact that I also feel like I’m 9 years old again after watching this trailer; especially at the very end of the [… Click to Continue …]
