I was born on June 21, 1976. Almost a year after I was born, one of, if not the BEST movies EVER, would be released on May 25, 1977. Whether you are as old or older than I am. I would imagine that most of us would agree that these movies to come would be a head of their time with the special effects. Everything from the light sabers to the Death Star. It was the best visual effects any of us would see at those times.
Since the New Hope was released I have looked forward to seeing every movie that has been released. Either the originals or the digitally remastered versions with extras added. I’m not sure what drew me into watch them over and over growing up as a kid but I enjoyed all of it. Including the time I went to see the Empire Strikes Back with my sister, Kelli Bowen (Jensen), in the front row of the movie theater and saw Darth Vader up close and personal. Man that has stuck with me over the years. So much that my Dad, Larry Jensen and I would watch them on regular T.V. whenever they came on.
So when the 1, 2, and 3 movies were going to be released, I couldn’t believe it. I looked forward to seeing every one of them and was very impressed with all three. The same has rung true for the Force Awakens. I have waited so long as most of us have to see the continuation of the movies and today is the day! I am definitely looking forward to see this new addition to the series of great movies. I have to give a special thank you to Kimberly McGriff for getting tickets for us to go see the movie tonight 12/18/2015. Even though she her self doesn’t see it how I do.
I know this isn’t really anything about bowling but I say the passion for want and desire are similar. Just like all of us have the passion and desire for the game of bowling we are individuals that have other likes and enjoyments. That same passion and love that I have for this great sport of ours I share with movies and I look forward to seeing the Force Awakens. I guess there’s a little nerd in me wanting to geek out over the special effects of this movie.
As I can’t wait to see this movie. I can’t wait to see all of you again on the lanes where all of us have a common love for this sport.
Let’s Awaken our inner Force the next time on the lanes! May the strikes be with you!
