Star Wars is the only picture i’ve ever seen a standing ovation at the end with people cheering and clapping. And that was for the 97 version. Would love to see what kind of response a showing of the original version would get.
Star Wars being hypnotic for me that would be seeing Return of the Jedi i was like 5 or 6 when i saw it.
That scene on the skiff where Luke salutes Artoo and his lightsaber is launched to him. Had me enraptured.
At the time i hadn’t seen a lot of movies and never saw pirate movies, or swashbucklers so it was quite exciting.
When Luke strides into Jabba’s in black cloak like he owns the place, i thought that was cool. As i did the hologram to Jabba scene. And the death star battle at the END and Throne room confrontation.
As for Indiana Jones, Raiders gets me every single time it hooks me in from the opening.
