    Star Wars


    Watched with my 2-year old son. Here are some of his observations:

    - Darth Vader is "sick" (ill)
    - Every planet was "Earth"
    - The Death Star was "Moon" (that's no moon, son)
    - Every spacecraft was a "rocket ship"
    - "The robot (C3PO) walks on 2 legs!"
    - Chewbacca is his favorite character
    - Jawas are scary

  • Iron Man

    Iron Man


    Where it all began. It's amazing to think that if Iron Man had failed, the MCU as we know it probably would not exist. Jon Favreau had a lot riding on this movie and boy did he deliver. Definitely a top 3 MCU movie for me.
