Married to the Empire

Monday, April 27, 2009


If you've been around here a while, you may remember that my husband and several other members of the 501st Legion did a photo shoot for Wired magazine last year in conjunction with what should have been the opening of the movie Fanboys. But it was delayed. Then delayed some more...

Fanboys finally opened this weekend. Steven and I went to see it, but we had low expectations going in, as The Dallas Morning News gave it a D. However, we loved the film! It was really good. Very funny, touching in parts, and filled with geek references. Steven understood it all; I got most of it.

If you're a big Star Wars fan, I highly recommend this film. (It's definitely not for kids, though.) If you're not familiar with this movie, you can watch the trailers here.

Oh wow! It's out! Eric never said anything, I wonder if he knows. Maybe it's not playing around here, or did you mean it's on DVD?

Ann, it's in theaters in limited release. Eric may not even know. There was NO advertising or anything. Steven didn't even know. I only found out because I read the movie reviews in the paper every Friday. You'll have to check your theaters to see if it's out in your area. I hope it is because it really was quite good (although there are a lot of dirty jokes).
