    Woke up this morning to find out that my one of my nieces is sick from school today so it's time for uncle Jacob to stay home... what does that mean? Movies and baking cookies!

    Whenever I'm watching a flick with my nieces, I always try to show them a movie from my childhood that they haven't seen. Been wanting to watch this with them for a while.

    Has anyone ever shown someone something they've made, and suddenly all the…

    This movie is SO 80s – fast planes, hot movie stars, sex... it's all here melted together with top-notch 80s music. I think Danger Zone plays 4 times in this movie – nuts!

    HOLY COW.

    This is everything I wanted it to be and more! For years and years I've dreamt of watching Star Wars for the first time in 1977. I listen/read stories that people share about sitting in the theater that summer, being fully transported to a new world, enthralled by the cultures, worlds, and the lived-in history of it all. People write how magical, yet head-scratching the film was in '77, with all of the fantasy names, places, plot elements,…
