Did the movie live up to the hype? Did the hype affect your first screening? your second? How important is it to see Star Wars on opening night? Of course we’re talking about The Force Awakens in this first episode of 2016. Both shazbazzar and JediShua see the most highly anticipated movie in ten years with friends, family, and first-timers time and again in 2D, 3D, and 3D IMAX and they begin their conversation with initial comments after a few times seeing a truly J.J. Abrams Star Wars movie. SPOILER ALERT! If, for some strange reason, you have not yet seen the newest addition to the galaxy far, far away, BEWARE! This episode of TechnoRetro Dads contains spoilers, speculations, and surprises that may make your first viewing of The Force Awakens better or worse (depending on who you ask).
IN THE NEWS: Is Star Trek: Axanar getting the ax? Independence Day makes a resurgence with Resurgence. PLUS, X-Men, video games, Batman, Superman, Captain America, Star Trek, and Jungle Book trailers hit theaters before The Force Awakens.
TOYS IN THE ATTIC: Christmas 2015 had some real hits, including a pie-in-the-face from 1964.
Wake up in a new year with 77 minutes of retrotastic technolove this Monday morning! So pour yourself a bowl of Wheaties (since you’re still set on keeping those New Year’s resolutions), hop on the treadmill, and walk across the TechnoRetro bridge from the past to the future as the old joins the new at a very appropriate time of year.
