When my younger niece, who is now 16 years old, was just a little thing (maybe 3 years old), she sat down next to me and asked to talk about "Star Wars." Her concern was something about the Jawas, but I don't remember what it was anymore.
Ha, there's a wiki about Jawas.
I don't really have a point here, except that I can still watch episodes IV, V and VI of "Star Wars" and be stirred. Not so much for the first/last 3 - I don't believe I have even seen Episode III. My favorite has always been "Return of the Jedi" because I really like the highly-inefficient imperial walkers.
But hey, I said this before, somewhere - why were R2 and C-3PO still around? Was this a more efficient time? Nowadays, they would have been in a landfill somewhere long before Luke Skywalker was a twinkle in his father's eye. The first 3 episodes, coming after the "sequels," ruined a lot of things.
And I really, really like the ring wraiths in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. More movies that can stir me years later.
I can't go to the movies anymore. Thank goodness for DVDs.
Try not. Do ... or do not. There is no try. (Miss you I do.)
