I was 11, and I also have a crappy memory.
We just watched it today too! It was so good and did make me want to watch all the Toy Story’s again (except 4).
I was negative 6, and have a really good memory.
I was 21, and saw it in “THE” best theater in the big city, with cushy seats and surround sound, When that spaceship came into view as if it passed over us, and then later they went into hyperspace - swoooon!!! DH (then DF) got the soundtrack album, and we listened to it often. We got to see the movie another time or two as we insisted my brother, then his brother, then his sister had to go with us to see this really awesome movie we found. To us, it was a whole new standard in what movies could do.
To me, this is the only SW movie that truly made such an impression, even if later ones had better writing, acting, cinematography, or special effects. Any improvements were not noticed by me, compared to the leap made by the original movie.
Exactly! It was so new and ground-breaking.
Way to rub it in to us oldies!
Very well stated. I don’t recall another Star Wars movie that impressed me that much.
Jurassic Park had a couple of moments that were close. When Alan and Ellie see the whole meadow of dinosaurs for the first time. The other cool thing was the glass of water vibrating when the t-rex was coming.
Lion King had an impressive moment at the beginning when the focus changed away from the ants on the branch.
This weekend I watched 4, 1 and halfway through 2 (the part when Woody meets Jessie)
4 continues to be my favorite so far. But I am yet to see 3 and finish 2.
By popular demand, I added a Star Wars poll thread.
Also, there are only two days left in the Pixar polls! Make sure to vote above!
It does have the highest Rotten Tomatoes score of all the movies, and the third-highest Metacritic score.
Personally, I think of each trilogy as a unit and have trouble piecing them apart, especially the originals and the prequels, because I tend to watch them all together (in threes, not all nine at a time, lol).
You may be thinking of Lucas taking forever to release Star Wars to DVD. While the VHS releases were fairly quick, they didn’t hit DVD until 2006, nearly a decade after DVD was released ('97). A lot of us had to make do with our Laser Discs in the meantime to get us through…
Could very well be.
This explains this particular scene from Back to the Future 2, in 2015…
Notice all the Laser Discs being disposed of. All from those SW fans who had been holding onto them for so long!
Woah now, this totally jumped the line
Ha! I’ve only ever heard my DS use this, whenever we start talking about something before his time.
Oh man, Wall-E just missed out at 14%!
All I have to say is, robots that save humanity’s home on Earth are way better than rats cooking in the kitchen. Haven’t you people ever heard of the Black Death?
Nah… anyone can cook!
Sorry about that, but thanks for the tip! I’ll get working on Round 2.
