    You think watching them for the first time in your 20's would be just as enjoyable opposed to being introduced to them as a kid? If so, I'd have to completely disagree. I think both Deuce and Kami would have a different opinion on SW if the latter were the case. Looking back on them of course.

    I liked Star Wars as a kid, but I was more into Next Generation (Star Trek), because my dad watched it, so I dug it.


    Today, I have an appreciation for Star Wars, rather than an absolute love for it. I appreciate how incredible the f/x was for it (still holds up really well today IMO), and that it jump-started the career of Ford. I appreciate the funny internet memes it's created on the internet. I appreciate how much of a bad- Vader was back then.

    Other than that though? I don't really "love" anything about the films.

    It's the tech.

    Swords=fantasy
    Light sabers= scifi

    The original story (A New Hope) is the same old swashbuckling "save the princess from the evil lord" story that's been told thousands of times in fantasy stories; this time the sword is made of light and the steed has X-wings.

    Gangs of New York

    The miscast of Cameron Diaz ruined the movie for me. I hated every scene she was in.

    Close to the way I feel about the original SW. Loved them as a kid, had the toys and still have my Boba Fett (favorite character) costume somewhere in this house . Now looking back, I just appreciate them, for their significance and memories, but I probably wouldn't want to sit through them again.

    Leo and D-Day overshadow her so much that I don't even pay attention to her.
