That’s right, you jokers. I’m tired of wading through endless bitchery in every single Star Wars thread to get to useful information (which brings a thought to mind - if someone wanted to create the all-negative Star Wars thread to allow folks to purge those thoughts, might be useful, but it ain’t me babe) so here we are. I allow only positive thoughts. If you don’t have any, move on along. There’s probably a dozen threads to knife fight in. I want to hear the good stuff, so here goes:
Star Wars: yes, I saw this in its original run before it was A New Hope, so that’s what I call it. I was caught up in its plucking adventure from the first scene. I’ve mentioned elsewhere that my mother tells me it’s the first time I sat still.
The Empire Strikes Back: the good guys lose! This was earth-shaking to me, I don’t think I had seen this happen before. So many cool things happened here, and I loved Yoda.
Return of the Jedi: my favorite part of the movie is still Han’s rescue. All the good guys working together to bring down Janna was like watching a fun Star Wars heist.
The Phantom Menace: I still love the opening with Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan tearing through the robots, seeing the Jedi at the height of their powers was pretty cool.
Attack of the Clones: Obi-Wan had the strongest story here, I enjoyed seeing him piece together the mystery of the clones. His battle with Jangonwas pretty cool too.
Revenge of the Sith: Seeing everything come crashing down was dramatic and interesting. The opener with rescuing Palpatine was a fun ride too.
The Force Awakens: I like the new gang, and it was fun seeing Han back in action again.
The Last Jedi: Luke as cranky old man who is too old for this shit was fun for me. Plus, I don’t mind seeing heroes fail.
I have to end there though because I haven’t seen Rogue One or Solo. But I can find something interesting in each movie even though I don’t consider myself much of a Star Wars fan these days. I’m curious if anyone else can, or if this topic will just slowly slide into obscurity. Have fun, or don’t! It’s all good.
