Crush of the Week: Princess Leia

You just knew that the Crush for Star Wars Week was going to be Carrie Fisher circa 1983. I wonder if Natalie Portman's character will have the same effect on the younger generation that Leia had on mine. Doubtful.


"Help me, Micah World. You're my only hope."

I got the above picture from Leia's Metal Bikini (no joke). Ladies, you can even purchase a replica bikini from that site. Aw, yeah!

Kate said...

Just saw Episode III. I give it a C+/B-. Action scenes rocked, love story was lame, and the dialog was insipid. Best of new triolgy. In my humble opinion Empire is still the best. Even with all the advances in CGI, I am still moved by a well built set. Anyway, this is just my opinion, I am sure other may disagree. Note, do noy be surprised if people begin to infer a relationship to the current situation in the US to elements in this film. A geeky topic to discuss at a later date. Until Later...

mrsmogul - Whoa. I hadn't heard that.

Kate - Unfortunately, I haven't been able to coax a girl to wear this outfit.

Shamrock - "Best of the new trilogy" is not a tough feat. And dialogue has always been a weak spot for Lucas. The whole Bush admin.-Empire connection has been discussed to death elsewhere. Lucas wrote the story years ago and actually based it on the Roman Empire. I say let Jar Jar Binks filibuster (but I'd reserve the nuclear option if I got even more annoying).

I know I cannot spell or type, but my last post was horrible. Luckily, I was tipsy and will use that as an excuse...and maybe that is why I always smell like my Dad's jacket! Until Later...
