So last night I secured my status as major geek.
With much excitement, I went to see Star Wars In Concert.
I contemplated going in costume but I did not have a lot of time to prepare so, sadly, I did not. I did however enjoy the show almost as much as this guy enjoyed his rainbow. Fine, I'll admit it. I cried. Just tiny little tears though. Not double rainbow sobs, but little teeny tiny geeky tears.
Anthony Daniels, who played C3PO, gave a brief narration between each piece of music played. In the background, a huge screen played images of the movie set to the music. Each set was crafted as a piece of the Star Wars story showing a montage of clips on a particular theme, ie: Anakin, the Princess, Yoda, the Droids. There was an accompanying laser light show to round it out.
The show, for a Star Wars fan, is amazing. Incredible. Fantastic. If you are not a fan, and dragged there solely to please your geek wife, then it is good. But we really don't want your opinion, you non-obsessed person.
If you want a review that is not only well written but captures everything I felt during the show, you can read this one. Heck, his review made me tear up. Little geeky tears of happiness. In a way that only Star Wars can make me.
Now if you will excuse me, I am going to watch all the movies. In a row. With my lightsaber and my R2D2. And remember this, Han shot FIRST.
