Power of the Force

Today is the day. This is the moment I’ve been waiting for since I was a kid. Revenge of the Sith is out, and I can’t wait to see it.

Watching the prequels on the big screen has been an interesting ride, and now that the last of them is here it’s going to be kind of strange knowing that there aren’t any more to look forward to. I know that some of the fussier fans have been disappointed in the prequels so far, but I understand why these stories have needed to be told they way they were and I’ve enjoyed them for the most part. Especially Attack of the Clones, which had everything I’d ever want in a Star Wars movie and has been my absolute favorite of the saga since I first saw it.

I can take a look back at where I was in my life and where I thought I was going at the time each of these prequel movies was released. Using these films as some sort of landmark on the grand scope of things, I find myself in very different situations between movies and winding up in places I hadn’t anticipated at the time. Now here we are at Revenge of the Sith and once again I find myself, for better or worse, at a completely different place in life than where I was for the previous movies. But for as much that has changed, and as different of a person as I now may be, there is one consistent factor that has stayed with me all this time. Something that hasn’t changed, and probably never will. I’m not Yoda, and I don’t know what the future holds, but I do know one thing:

The Force is with me.
