MOVIE REVIEW: Rogue One

I am only a year late on this one but I finally got a chance to watch Rogue One last weekend. When it comes to the Star Wars universe I am probably a middle ground fan.

I don’t remember every element of the plots at an intricate level, I can’t name all the characters on the Star Wars Dobble cards and I don’t know what any of the ships are called apart from the Millennium Falcon.

Madame Tussauds goes wrong… again

While Madame Tussauds is one of London’s most famous attractions it’s also one of its cheesiest and I still maintain that very few of the waxworks actually look like who they are supposed to.

Anyway, Mr O now works for the same company that owns Madame Tussauds which means that we get to go there for free and I like anything that is free (something I learned from both of my parents). At the moment the attraction has a special exhibition on the go featuring characters from Star Wars. As you’ll know from my recent Film Fridays, I love a bit of Star Wars as does Mr O, so we decided to go and investigate. In order to get to the Star Wars bit we had to go through the rest of the exhibits and we might once again have been a little bit bad…

Thought this might be Jennifer Lopez but we weren't sure
