What is your favorite movie series of all time? Harry Potter? Mission Impossible? Lord of the Rings or Star Wars? When is the last time that you sat down and spent an entire day watching every single movie in that series? If it has been a while, I recommend that you take some time in an upcoming weekend (or time off) to make that happen!
Over Labor Day weekend, my fiance Caele and I binged Star Wars: A New Hope through the Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Watching them in rapid succession did a few things for us. First, since we’ve seen them all before, it allowed us to look at them from a different perspective and notice things that we’ve never picked up on before. For example, did you know that they reference that Leia is force sensative starting in episode 5. It was always a shocker to me when she uses the force in the Last Jedi. It shouldn’t have been.
Second, I don’t know about you, but my weekends tend to get packed full of things that make sitting around on the couch a rare occasion. This was the first weekend in a long time we were able to just completely relax. If you haven’t had an opportunity to just lay around and not move, I highly recommend it.
And lastly, it’s the perfect excuse to get your movie snacks on! Nonstop nachos, chicken strips and popcorn all weekend! If you haven’t ever done a movie marathon, or haven’t done one recently, then you should plan to do one this weekend! Got plans this weekend? Break them! It’s movie marathon time!
