Two Flavors of Sand

     This week two films set, at least partially, under the blazing desert sun.

     A military prison in the Libyan Desert where the guards are just as brutal as the land. Five new prisoners, including a former Sargent Major convicted of assaulting his commanding officer, are placed under the charge of Staff Sargent Williams, an equally new guard who sees their suffering as a means of promotion. The first of five collaborations between director Sidney Lumet and star Sean Connery, The Hill.
     The last entry in a trilogy that has enamored generations and spawned a multi-billion dollar franchise. It has been a year since Captain Solo was captured at Cloud City. His friends arrive with a desperate plan to rescue him with the hopes that this victory will help turn around the fortunes of a struggling rebellion. Meanwhile, the last living Jedi master is quickly nearing the end of his life and the Empire are nearly finished rebuilding their ultimate weapon of terror and domination- The Death Star. Before all hope is lost, there will be a Return of the Jedi.
     All that and Tyler has no hesitation, Kevin feels the sting of an unfair fight, and Dave chokes on his cotton candy. Join us, won't you?
