One thing is for sure, we all like Star Wars. No matter what decade we saw it, or how old we were, we all liked it in some way. It begs the question of how you feel about compared to how you felt about it say 30 years ago, 20, or 10.
Now I am not talking about the changes, I am talking the essence of the originals. Is the nostalgia as strong? Do you see a kenner figure as a piece of gold at yard sales? Do you do certain things in life because of Star Wars, say a job or something?
I would like to here it from others like me, pre 97 fans. Really the core question is, do you like it as much as you did at the beginning, or is it one of those pleasures that have never been topped?
Is the posters still on the wall? Share your childhood or like some of our Old farts, your early adulthood. Share the things you did with friends, or your first Star Wars experience. I am just interested, because when it comes to Star Wars, the experiences I had while watching them were what made it worth while.
"The other versions will disappear. Even the 35 million tapes of Star Wars out there won’t last more than 30 or 40 years. A hundred years from now, the only version of the movie that anyone will remember will be the DVD version [of the Special Edition], and you’ll be able to project it on a 20’ by 40’ screen with perfect quality. I think it’s the director’s prerogative, not the studio’s to go back and reinvent a movie." - George Lucas
