Hey, Joe Mauer from the Twins here. The TwinkieTown guys asked me to review the new Star Wars movie for the website, and I'm here to tell you, it's a home run lol. That's just some baseball humor for you guys.
But I really did like it.
I liked the Star Wars movies a lot when I was growing up, but I have to say I was a little nervous for this new one. It was rated PG-13, which my mom says means "Pretty Gross 13." I looked that up on the internet and it says mom's wrong, but I guess there's two sides to every story.
So I got my small popcorn and my small drink (no butter and no ice, what do I look like a reliever lol) and got settled into my seat at the movie theater. The previews looked pretty neat, but there wasn't a commercial for a new Minions movie, so that was disappointing. Those little guys are so funny, but you can tell they have good hearts, and that's what really matters.
Jesse said that I shouldn't post anything that spoils the movie for folks who haven't seen it yet, so I'll just say that there were a lotta good parts, and Han Solo and Chewie were in it and it was awesome seeing them in the Millennium Falcon. Anything else beyond that is a secret between me, myself, and I, buster. (Not Buster Olney haha. That tiny fella wasn't there anywho.)
So would I recommend it? You bet. But just a word of warning: There are some adult words and situations, so don't repeat them or you might catch some heck from mom.
