The Last Jedi is a Good Movie That is Very Frustrating

I'll give no spoilers. It was a good movie. It was satisfying. But it clearly resented the Skywalker storyline.

When I was a kid growing up in Dubai, our house keeper, Anna, would leave a warm pot of chicken curry on the stove for…

As I got older I tried and tried to recreate that curry. I eventually made some really good curries. The trick is cooking the whole spices in hot oil first. I'll never forget the first time I made a bowl of curry that matched my memory. I stood in the kitchen tasting small bites, probing each morsel for false notes of taste and memory. I could find none and I began to cry. I had made Anna's curry.
