Melinda’s Brew: Finn – A Stormtrooper With Heart

Melinda's Brew

I am well aware that each of us has our individual list of favorite characters from the Star Wars Galaxy. We might like the same character for the same reasons – or even for vastly different reasons. Some of the reasons might revolve around major themes a character embodies, maybe traits we see in ourselves [or wish we’d see].

FIREFLY BRINGS MORE “TROOPS” TO THE BRUSH BATTLE WITH A NEW
STAR WARS 3D CHARACTER TOOTHBRUSH FEATURING STORMTROOPER
New toothbrush line features a 3D action figure on the handle, blurring the line between brush time and play time to entertain kids into healthy habits

BUENA PARK, Calif. (March 21, 2016) – Just in time for Easter basket goodies and the anticipated DVD release of the newest Star Wars film, Firefly – the leader in children’s oral care solutions – has expanded its line with a new 3D Character Toothbrush, featuring the iconic Star Wars Stormtrooper. This toothbrush brings interstellar fun to brush time by blurring the line between toy and toothbrush, featuring a Stormtrooper on the front of the brush that looks like an action figure, and stands upright on the counter for less mess and superior hygiene. This is the first in a new line of Firefly 3D Character Toothbrushes that will be introduced – Kylo Ren, Hello Kitty and other 3D Character Toothbrushes will debut later in 2016.

Missing the Point:
An Analysis of Star Wars: The Force Awakens
Part I – The Film
— A Guest Blog by Daniel Noa

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is a massive hit. Given the caliber of the filmmakers, from Hollywood it-boy J.J.

So it pains me to write that I was incredibly disappointed with the film. Given all the love I see for this movie on the internet, this may frustrate you. I do not want to diminish your enjoyment of this film, so rather than take to Twitter, I have written this 2-part essay to explain my issues with the movie, both as a film (Part I) and as a Star Wars story (Part II), in as clear and logical a way as possible.
