A Taste of Things to Come: Weekend Waster

This is merely a small part of a larger idea of mine. This section is for things that you can buy to waste away a full weekend:

Star Wars – With the release of Revenge of the Sith, an easy way to waste your weekend away is to watch the complete Star Wars saga. Not only are all previous five movies on DVD. But you can also pick up the animates Droids and Ewoks shows, the Clone Wars cartoons, and the Ewok movies that were made. Plus if you head out for a convention, you can always also pick up the Holiday Special, and maybe even the Muppet Show with the Star Wars characters.

The Star Wars movies are a fun romp through special effects laden worlds and through differing filming styles of the 70s-early 802 and the 90s-early 00s. These movies are fun, even if you don’t think episodes 1 and 2 are great. There is still a lot of fun, and some battles that make up for it. Even some of the more painful stuff, like the Christmas Special, can still be a lot of fun.

If you are going to watch this before watching Revenge of the Sith, do it in filming order, with the original trilogy first, then the cartoons, and the Ewoks movies, then the new trilogy. This will pump you up for what is to come, as well as not leaving you on too high of a note before the finale. Now, have fun!
