Every Generation Has A Story

The last time I wrote anything was on the 1st of December, that’s because I felt I just wanted to go into hibernation with the dark nights drawing in early, daylight limited.But there was work to be done and preparations for the festive season ahead. Counting the days, not just for the end of term but something far more exciting than Christmas day and that was the release of Star Wars – The Force Awakens.

It was time to catch up with the Anakin Skywalker’s  family tree in order to watch the long awaited saga, after all there’s a lot of catching up to do since three decades have passed , the First Order is threatened by a new force. I have watched the film twice now and hope to see the third in 3D -Why ?  You may ask and my answer  Why not? 700starwars

Star Wars was delivered and executed as to my expectations. A well planned story – ‘out with the old in with the new‘ without disturbing  the balance of life. Star Wars  fans of my generation got the opportunity to share their childhood with their own children and the fantastic thing about that was mums, dads and uncles all dressed up in their chosen characters , encouraging the new generation to go with the force.

What better way to bring a family closer – ‘The force is calling you, just let it in’.

Talking of closer you can’t get any closer than ‘In The Heart Of The Sea’ starring the gorgeous Chris Hemsworth.

This story goes back to 1820 when a whaling ship was taken down by a monster of a whale. this recount was the inspiration of the novel Moby Dick. I have to admit the trailer did me no favors but I was pleasantly surprise by the movie as it unfolded.MV5BMjA5NzUwODExM15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNjM0MzE4NjE@._V1_SX214_AL_ A ship , A handful of fishermen, An ocean that is full of surprises and of  course natures elements that can go against you within seconds. Be prepared to be swept away with mixed emotions  especially when survival is the key , what a man would not do to survive!

The tragedy of the Essex is the story of men. And a Demon.
