Well then, guess that explains why he was trying to avoid him in the quarry. 😉
I have noticed you said you never watched the prequels and I wonder. Is it because you don’t want them to taint how you view the OT or are you just not interested?
I’m not blaming you or anything I’m just really curious.
Little of both I suppose, but mostly because I’m not interested. I saw Phantom when it was released, thought it was terrible, and have all but forgotten it. I remember a few scenes, but it’s not something I can recall other than how non-OT it looked and felt.
I haven’t seen the last sequel film either. Same reason. I’ve also only seen ROTJ twice that I’m sure of. Once in the theater and I wanted to walk out it was so stupid. I know I saw it again about 20 years ago when we did a lunchtime theater marathon of the OT where I worked. It’s possible there was a third time somewhere along the way, but I can’t be sure. That lunchtime theater was also the last time I saw Empire.
I don’t have a problem skipping what I don’t care for. I don’t battle the franchise the way some people do. They’re just movies. I watch what I like and skip the rest. It’s not difficult at all.
Sorry for the late reply, I only just now logged back in.
That’s a very unusual take but very instersting, and basic when you think about it. Don’t watch what you don’t care for! Simple. I think we get so caught up in Star Wars as a cultural phenomena that we forget that they’re just movies and we don’t have to watch them all. Like any movie, if you’re not interested you don’t have to watch it.
