Best. Sequel. Ever.

on Wednesday, 21 May 1997. Posted in 1997

As the title says, I have just watched the sequel to the best movie ever made! Yeah, it’s The Empire Strikes Back. I also watched this one in Dolby Digital Sound so the movie experience was amazing. This movie continues the story in STAR WARS. The Rebels may have destroyed the Death Star but the Empire is far from defeated. The rebels’ fight has just begun and it first takes place on the ice planet Hoth, where we see Luke and Han riding tauntauns, dinosaur-like animals that can survive the tremendous cold of the planet. Next, a probe droid launched by the Empire lands on the planet and Luke goes to check it out. He is then attacked by a wampa, a native monster kind of like a polar bear, but bigger and walks upright. Anyway, he was brought to the wampa’s cave unconscious, but regains his wits and uses the force for the second time in his life to get his lightsaber on the ground and kill the ugly white beast. He runs far away from the cave and is found by Han Solo. By now, Luke is suffering from hypothermia and needs to be heated quickly. Han splits the belly of his tauntaun, a horse-like lizard creature, and puts freezing Luke inside. The next morning, they are found by rebel scouts and given medical treatment. A few days later,

Today, I was a witness to science-fiction history. A milestone in movie history. A futuristic myth of a time long, long ago and a galaxy far, far away… Yes, I watched STAR WARS!!! On the 20th anniversary of it’s premier, creator George Lucas had Industrial Light and Magic recreat scenes and enhance the sound for this truly Special Edition movie. It was amazing! It was breathtaking in all of it’s scenes! Roaring Digital Sounds! Two thumbs up! Absolutely the best!

Trapped

Written by Raymond Santos Estrella on Tuesday, 24 May 1994. Posted in 1994

I’m trapped! A few weeks ago our car got an accident or something. Tomorrow we’ll have to bring it in for repairs at Toyota Bel-Air branch. This will take 5 days. That means it’s very close to school days. And I don’t know if I’ll get to copy X-Wing. But the good news is that I’ve got P300.00 pesos. But I can’t spend it all in one setting. I’ve got a secondary plan to copy at least two to four X-wing disks. In a few days I’ll be going to the supermarket to buy my school supplies, pens, pencils, envelopes, and especially diskettes. Once again I close this log only to open it again. I’ll get what I want someday, someday…

New Game

Written by Raymond Santos Estrella on Sunday, 22 May 1994. Posted in 1994

I’m talking about a new game I’d like to copy, X-Wing The Imperial Pursuit. It is taken from the Blockbuster movie of George Lucas, Star Wars. I don’t know much about it but I can be sure that It’s a great game. All I know is that it’s the top rival of Mindscape’s Wing Commander I, II and III and It has great 3D graphics which is good enough to make quite an impact on a Super VGA analog display and a medium but reliable 80386 processor. I don’t know when I can get a chance to copy it because It’s a whopping six 5¼” 1.2 Mb disks!! And that will cost me about P300.00 pesos plus I’ve got only four 3½” 1.44 Mb disks. That means I’ll need two more 3½” 1.44Mb disks, which means P90.00 pesos more which brings my total money needs to P390.00!! At least that’s a sign that it’s a wonderful game. Well I’ll tell you when I get it. Adios, Asta la vista, good-bye for now.
