Star Wars


This is random, and relates to nothing, but am I the only person in the world who—upon further inspection—thinks the original three Star Wars movies to be extraordinarily lame? I mean, like every other child of the 80s, I loved the films as a boy; waited on line like most others to catch them as early as possible.

Now, however, approaching my 40s, I find them to be, well, terrible. Lame dialogue, stuffed with cliches, a star (Mark Hamill) who may well be the worst “big-time” actor in the history of Lloyd’s Lumber. I get the whole good vs. evil thing, but I also get the whole without-hype-these-films-are-showing-late-night-on-Channel-11-after-the-Yule-Log thing.

Anyhow, just blathering.
