May the force be with you

I just got back from seeing the new Star Wars movie. There were a few people dressed up, and I laughed at them appropriately*. I can't imagine dressing up for a movie as a character in the movie. However, if this were something I was going to pursue, I think I would dress up as Sloth to go see "The Goonies". That way I would attract a lot of men. Or people would give me Baby Ruths. Either way, I win.

The movie theater was packed with dorks--including us. And just like Urban Princess said, people were cheering. It was pretty cool. I won't give anything away, but I do have a few comments:

1. It kicked total effing ass. Holy crap was this movie good. I am not even a total Star Wars dork, and there were parts where I had goosebumps.
2. When Anakin turns bad, the dude turns baaaaaaaad. Wow.
3. Hayden Christensen is one hot little piece. I don't know how old he is or how tall he is, but I do know that I would like him to show me all the "powers of the force", if you know what I mean.

*Last night my friend Kim dressed up as Princess Leia-buns and all-with a little bit of persuasion from her roommate Steph. And even though Steph blatantly admitted she was just messing with her, Kim went through with it and wore the outfit to the movie at midnight last night thinking lots of other people would be dressed up. We got the call about 20 minutes later that nobody else at the movie was dressed up. I think I can say with all honestly that I burst a blood vessel in my head from laughing so hard. Kim, thanks for the laughs. That moment will live on in my memory forever.

I went Wednesday night - there were all sorts of dorks in costume and more fake weaponry than i was comfortable with in a theater. About 6 ten-year olds were having a lightsaber battle in the aisle and there was even someone dressed in a "sexy stormtrooper" uniform, with an exposed midriff.

Don't you think that Hayden is way more convincing as a bad guy? The only flaw I noticed was his "love scenes" were as awkward as a jr. high romance.

I really wish someone had pics of Kim dressed up like that....

First of all, I know you chicks think Hayden is really hot but he may possibly be the worst actor ever. How the hell did he get chosen to play that part? Anyways, the funny thing is that if you follow the Hayden link on this blog and look at the pictures, one of them is just Darth Vader's mask but it's marked as 'Picture of Hayden Christensen'. I thought it was funny.

Anonymous...what are you talking about? I thought Hayden did an awesome job! That movie ruled! I will admit that some hot movie guys are bad actors though...Paul Walker, Chris Klein, Freddy Prince Jr. just to name a few. I wish you all could have seen Kim and her makeshift costume! It was amazing.

That made me pee a little.
