Wide Awake Bun Toons! YAY!

It’s like electricity is shooting through my brain.

Almost a true story.

Emotionally true, anyway.

I cannot stress enough how little regard I have for the any of the previous attempts to recapture the magic of Star Wars.  Though I consider Empire a decent enough film, it’s hardly in the same league as the sublimely wonderful original picture.  Somehow, J. J. Abrams loved the franchise enough to give us a sequel you can bite into.  It’s flawed, it’s a little bit TOO much of an homage to the original, and there are some plot holes that the Millennium Falcon can fly through, but who cares?

Finally we have a Star Wars that’s FUN, exciting, FUNNY, clever, well-acted, and I am even willing to buy into the mythology of it all, this time around.   Shows you what a missed opportunity the last four or five films have been.

Ty the Guy OUT!

Many moons ago, when the trailer first came out, I sensed a tingling in the force…here’s the Bun Toon from that week.

Hee hee.

Not disappointed.

About ten years ago, I did a graphic novel for Vertigo Comics called “BIGG TIME”.  It was a satire of the entertainment industry and the whole need for fame in the American psyche…and on page 71, a character showed up wearing a T-Shirt with a special message…


If you can’t read the shirt is says “I’m Still Waiting for Star Wars Episode Seven”.

  1. You’ve given me hope; I’ll probably see the movie Monday. There are Star Wars fans who think the original is best, and there are those who think Empire is best. The latter are, of course, mistaken—great bits don’t make a great movie.

  2. My son’s review was the best one: “It was a Star Wars movie.” Because it really, really was.

    Lol Empire Strikes Back is thee BEST star wars film!

    I can’t understand anyone preferring a new hope over it.

    Boggles the mind.
