We three Sister Geeks have all experienced Star Wars: The Last Jedi (some of us twice). Of course, we all have strong feelings about it. But it’s the holiday season and scheduling prevents us from getting together to gush about it in proper fashion. However, we can’t let this week go by without at least sharing some of our feelings about the latest chapter of our favorite space opera. So check out this quick and dirty, spoiler-free share of our TLJ feels.

It’s that time again, geeks… the season we spend way too much money showering our loved ones with crap they’ll love, but don’t actually need. If you’ve got geeks in your life, you’ll know that gift-giving can be an exciting, but nerve-wracking process. This week, I’ve got your back. I’ll be helping you find cool, but cost-effective, gifts for the geeks in your life. First up, a few things for Star Wars fans:
As you all know, we lost too many of the greats in 2016. We’ve grieved legends from TV, Music, Movies, Sports and more, and some particularly tough ones in the last week. But though we may have had a bad year, we’ve much to celebrate too.
- Sistergeeks.net celebrated it’s first birthday in 2016. Happy birthday to us!
- The world got it’s first stand-alone Star Wars movie, reminding us why Darth Vader is the ultimate bad guy.
- Disney tackled racism with Zootopia and grossed over a billion dollars doing it, making it the third most successful movie of the year behind Captain America: Civil War and Finding Dory. That is, until we find out how Rogue One does.
- And ladies reigned with an all female Ghostbusters, Beyonce’s Lemonade album, and Moana (Disney’s really killin’ it this year), who proved she didn’t need a prince to be a success.
If you’re still skeptical, check out these two articles that list some of the best things 2016 left us with at NY Daily News and Us Magazine, and you’re sure to feel better about what might otherwise be THE SUCKIEST YEAR OF ALL TIME. That being said, can we resolve to protect the remaining gods of pop culture until science advances, then upload them to The Cloud forever?
Stay tuned this week for the Sister Geeks’ actual resolutions, and feel free to comment your own as we welcome 2017. It’s been a rough one, but here’s to sad farewells and new beginnings. We love you all, fellow geeks! Happy new year!
The Dark Lord himself, Simon Cowell, actually gives his approval to this dancing troupe of Stormtroopers on Britain’s Got Talent. Enjoy this light-hearted performance from the foot soldiers of the Dark Side!
