  • Watching Star Wars...for the First time!

    So, it's the 30th anniversary of Star Wars and the BBC has a cute little piece in their entertainment section on the impressions of one of their entertainment reporters who is watching Star Wars for the very first time (How is that possible?). Anyway, it's a fun read as the reporter records his impressions chapter by chapter:

    Think he would have enjoyed it more if he didn't have to pause it every 3 minutes to write for 5 minutes ;)

        Is this the one where he's watching it from EPI > EP VI?

        If so, the emotional content from Luke finding our Vader is his father (possibly one of the greatest movies twists ever) will be non-existent.

          I agree. My ex-wife had never seen Star Wars, so I made her watch them in the order that we all had to. IV, V, VI, then I, II, and III. She loved it. THAT's the way to do it. It also helped that we could just watch and enjoy them instead of worrying about writing an article.

            Enjoyed the first 3 movies, the last three movies were like that article. Painful.

              I watched the first Star Wars sometime in the eighties, but I never watched any others.

              I tried to watch the first episode of the second series when someone gave me the DVD, but I lost interest. I tried, but I just think spaceships and such are not for me.

              But I DID enjoy the Xbox Knights of the Old Republic game.

                  I remember when I watched a marathon of 4-6 in a theater in the 80's. Boy, was my butt sore after that!

                  (It was the old UC Berkeley theater on University. It was the first place I saw Rocky Horror with the live "act along with the movie" group down front, in full costume with nice props.)

                          my wife and i watched two programs on the history channel about star wars: one was about the parallels of star wars compared to different myths of greek, roman, babylonia, etc. mythologies and the other was the technology of star wars

                          both were very cool and would recommend watching them if they are rerun on history ... it's very cool to see the depth lucas put into everything like how chewbacca's name is taken from a word in russian or cossack and nabuu is the name of the babylonia goddess of wisdom and other things like that
