WEEKEND SPECIAL: THE CANINE FILM CRITIC EXPLAINS "STAR WARS"



For first time readers, this blog discusses fairly serious topics during the week. The weekends, however, are generally reserved for the contributions of various talking animals in and around Goat Rope Farm.

This weekend, we once again welcome Sandor Sege (pronounced Shandor Shegg-AY), our official film critic.

(We must remind the reader that Mr. Sege suffered a head injury when he crashed into a wall whilst chasing a squeaky toy and has been known to transpose the plots of the films he reviews. Nonetheless, we believe his unique insights into the world of cinema more than compensate for this regrettable shortcoming.)

It is our hope that features such as this will promote a greater appreciation of both the humanities and the animalities.

THE CANINE FILM CRITIC ON THE 30TH ANNIVERSARY OF "STAR WARS"

OK like this movie is so cool. There's this guy Luke Skywalker and he lives on this little dump of a planet but he gets caught up in a big adventure when he comes home from college.

They have this big party and a guy tells him "plastics" is what it's all about and then Mrs. Robinson is like all over him. I didn't really understand that part, but Doodus said it was because of something a vet did to me when I was little. He kept telling me it wasn't his fault and that it was before I came here.

Anyway, Mrs. Robinson is a private detective in Los Angeles but he/she gets caught up in this big case about water and murder.

Meanwhile Luke changes his name to Stanley and moves to New Orleans and marries Stella and when her sister Blanche comes to visit, she's kind of a whack but is also princess of the galaxy. They ride around and blow things up in a spaceship named Desire.

It's all like about the mythic quest of the hero or something.

The only bad thing about this movie is it was so predictable.

I like the part where some dude named Yoda tells them to follow the Yellow Brick Road and they end up in some place called Narnia that rocks with some totally cute faun named Tumnus. And the movie ends with a musical number...all good movies end with a musical number. Darth, Yoda, and Obi Wan all do the cancan and sing, "There's No Business Like Yo Business."

Thanks for the laugh, El Cabrero. Always good...

Dear Mary Rayme,
I referred your comment to Mr. Sege, who had this to say:

"Yeah that part was awesome, especially when they zap that giant marshmallow dude."

Mr. Sege also left out the part where Tim the Magician predicted the predicability of the film ...

Great blog.

As usual, Mr. Sege has given me insights into a film that are literally out-of-this-world.

Juanuchis--That was a major lapse, wasn't it? I blame the squeaky toy/head injury thing.

Nick--He did stretch himself a little this time. Thanks!
