Poor Obi-Wan. He gets such a bum rap from certain segments of the "Star Wars" fan base. He lied to Luke. He failed Anakin. How much guff can a Jedi take?
I went on the record a long time ago indicating I never have been bothered by Obi-Wan Kenobi's "... from a certain point of view" line in "Return of the Jedi". What Obi-Wan said...

Welcome Back! Thanks for coming back for Round 2 of my favorite memories from my quest to see The Force Awakens at least 13 times in the theater . When we met earlier this month, I recounted two of my most memorable viewings, and if you're ready, I'm set to jump right into the fray to continue where I left off. Here we...Star Wars News & Info

Quite the journey this has been. When I posted my first "The ABCs of Star Wars" blog back in January, I felt like Luke must have felt when he took his first steps into the larger, unknown world of the Force. Ben gave our favorite farm boy a slight introduction in A New Hope -- "The Force is what gives the Jedi his power. It's an energy...Star Wars News & Info
Call me silly , but I've always been ... entranced ... by Alfred Hitchcock's decision to make a cameo appearance in his films. They always are unobtrusive roles -- an every-day man riding the bus , a customer leaving a pet shop , a passenger lugging a double bass trying to board the train . In some instances, the director had to be...Star Wars News & Info
To say I’ve been walking around feeling like a giddy schoolgirl is ... well, an understatement. :-) With just a tad bit more than 100 days to go until “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” debuts in theaters around the country, that is exactly how I feel! :-) And why not? All of us were under the impression that “Revenge of the Sith”...Star Wars News & Info
Loss. Grief. They come in all shapes and sizes. All kinds. We might lose a pet, a job, a home, a friend, a loved one. Each loss brings with it a certain amount of sadness and grief – and if one chooses to be a part of the human race, there is absolutely no escape from either. A loss does not necessarily have to mean that someone is...Star Wars News & Info
On the 4th of July while I was driving to Idaho with my family, my seven-year-old son asked all of us to name our three favorite Star Wars characters. It was such a simple question, but it led to a lot of fun discussion. He was the first to answer and said his three favorites are the Inquisitor, Darth Vader, and Darth Maul. Three evil,...Star Wars News & Info
Yesterday was Star Wars Day at Miller Park in Milwaukee. The Brewers certainly could have used a Jedi both in the field and in the batting order as they faced Arizona’s Diamondbacks. After the first couple of innings, nothing went the Brew Crew’s way. When the ninth inning’s last out was tallied, the Brewers fell to the...
