(This is a post I forgot I wrote years ago so…I wanted to reshare it with you. Enjoy!)
I love Star Wars for so many reasons. I love the stories, I love the action, I love the environment, and I absolutely love the characters. And of course, each character has their own special style and part of that style is their hair. So, on that note, here are my six favorite Star Wars hairstyles.
6. Qui-Gon Jin
Qui-Gon is cool for so many different reasons and one of those reasons is his impeccable hairstyle. First of all, it’s totally a look that I would imagine a Jedi Master having. It’s simple yet elegant in a way, it has this kind of Samurai warrior vibe which is totally sensible considering that George Lucas’s inspiration for the Jedi was from Samurai, and it perfectly defines Qui-Gon. He’s also the only character in Star Wars, so far, with a hairstyle like this. Now I think Rey is going to go a little Qui-Gon on everyone with her new look but that’s a whole other topic.
However, at the moment Qui-Gon Jin has the coolest hairstyle as a Jedi so far.

With one week left until the event of the year, The Rise of Skywalker, it’s time to look at the posters for the anthology films in the franchise, Solo: A Star Wars Story and Rogue One. Enjoy!
Solo is the lowest-grossing Star Wars film of all time and it’s understandable why that’s the case. The marketing for the movie did nothing to entice fans and it all begins with the posters. I’ve found several interesting posters for the movie but compared to the posters for the other Star Wars films, these pale in comparison.

Every week I like to trek down memory lane by reposting an old post I wrote a while back and this post here is about as ancient as it gets. I first posted it on January 2, 2017…nearly two years ago. It’s amazing to think of the journey that I have taken since then and all the different films I have watched (and enjoyed) since then.
So, on that note, I hope you enjoy this week’s segment of Throwback Friday. 🙂
SPOILER ALERT! I talked about everything I liked in the movie and so if you have never seen it before and you’d like to avoid spoilers I’d highly advise you to stop reading now. Thanks for heeding my warning.
(It’s a long read.)
The New Locations
I love that this movie showed us six brand new worlds that we’ve never seen before in Star Wars. There was the planet where Galen and his family resided, Lah’Mu. The Rings of Kafrene. The Imperial labor camp, Wobani. Jedha, home to the last Jedi temple. Eadu. And Scarif. Even though it was brief my favorite new location was the trading outpost at the Rings of Kafrene. The concept of a small city placed in between two asteroids is amazing. I hope the next Star Wars has cool, original locations like Rogue One did.

One of my favorite things about Rogue One were the characters. You had Jyn Erso, the daughter of the man who built the Death Star! Captain Cassian Andor, a rebel spy. K-2SO, a reprogrammed Imperial droid. Bodhi Rook, a defected Imperial pilot. Baze Malbus, a seasoned soldier. And finally you have Chirrut, the spiritual warrior who believed in the ways of the Force wholeheartedly.
I loved the concept of Chirrut ever since I saw him in the first teaser because there had never been a blind person in Star Wars and it’s always exciting seeing new characters with unique characteristics about themselves. But to also find out that he had the Force was beyond awesome. Even though he wasn’t a Jedi he was so cool and he really became one of my favorite characters in Star Wars. So today on this segment of Greatest Moments I’m going to share with you all of the things that made me like his character so much in Rogue One.
1. Chirrut Kicks Stormtrooper Booty
I remember the first time I saw this scene. Before this scene Chirrut had already been briefly inserted into the movie as he participated in a quick conversation with Jyn Erso but this scene was the true debut for him. I recall watching this part carefully watching what was going to happen as he was surrounded by stormtroopers ready to kill him. Then he went plum off on them martial arts style and defeated all of them without even getting a scratch. And may I remind you, he’s blind!!! How incredible is that? Chirrut might not have been a Jedi but his ability with the Force was off the charts. After this scene I immediately knew I was a Chirrut fan and that’s why this is undoubtedly one of his greatest moments.

I wrote a post back in July of last year celebrating the ten most incredible women of Star Wars and now that The Last Jedi has come out it’s time to update my list. Enjoy!
10. Maz Kanata
Maz is a pretty cool character but she’s not very original. If Yoda was female he would be Maz. Maz of course isn’t a Jedi which makes her slightly different but she does have the wisdom of a thousand years and the knowing of the Force. Her wisdom is what helped spur Rey onto her path. Unfortunately her role in The Last Jedi was very limited and she frankly could’ve been left out of the movie but she was so cool in The Force Awakens I had to put her on this list.

So yesterday I watched Rogue One and it was fantastic, to say the least. But then as the credits were rolling I thought to myself, what are the moments in Star Wars that always brings a tear to my eye, from either the sheer happiness I feel for the moment or the immense sadness that the situation entails. Great Star Wars films are like emotional rollercoasters, that’s why they’re so enjoyable. There are certain times in the movies that can make me the happiest person on Earth while there are other moments that can literally leave me in a bath of tears. And so, here are the five instances in Star Wars that happen to always make me at least a little emotional.
