13. Star Wars
Do I really need to tell you? It's about a man who rescues a princess. First one on the list we've all seen.
What I thought
Second viewing for me. I loved the music, the aliens. I love R2D2. I love the space ships. It's great.
What Mum thought
Mum's seen this a few times before. "It's Star Wars! What's not to like?"
What Dad thought
Dad's a Star Wars geek, he's seen it a few times before. "Star Wars, how I love thee, let me count the ways... Hans freakin' Solo; one of the best anti-heroes ever brought to screen, Vader; Somerset lad makes good. Tarkin and X-Wings and Jawas... What's not to love??? Well, if you are a purest like me then you DO NOT like the special editions! Why make Greddo shoot first? It was fine before. Of course Han shot first, Greddo's an idiot. Why does Luke's light sabre change colour for no reason? Blue, then briefly green, then blue again?
Star Wars how I love thee, but in your pure, unsullied form. Bring on the original. That's the one we should have watched."
