Like many other movies, this one has escaped my viewing attention at the right time. Mostly because movies weren’t really a point of interest to me until college when, well, they where easy to get your hands on…
Sadly the time of cinemas was over here, in Romania, due to the new found “liberty” brought by the 1989 revolution. Cinemas where regarded as a communist symbol, i guess, a symbol of propaganda and carefully selected media for the people. Very few of the old buildings have kept their initial destination, but those that have, are worth it. Don’t think about some marvels of modern science, their beauty resides in the few people that come to watch movies here, the trebling image projected on the screen and, yes, the toilets with signs written in french.
Back to Star Wars. For some time now i have watched people gather around common preferences. Movies are as good as any example of people unifiers, to say so. A good movie, and by good i understand many things that may or may not be considered so by all of you, can act as a leader, can transform beliefs, even if it is for a small period of time. Star Wars must have been one of these movies cause at that time it was new and exciting.
Now to the real point, for the past week i had the flu, so i felt like lying in bed and watching movies, hence Star Wars from the beginning, or from the end, who has seen them, knows what i mean. Last night i reached episode 4 – A New Hope, actually the first one to be produced. And after seeing the ones produced recently with all the computer graphics, it was kinda funny in a compassionate way, to see all the aliens that where costumes and masks worn by people, and computers with big control panels and lighted buttons, space ships that looked like fighter aircrafts with guns that were hand-maneuvered by people.
But what i liked the most, and the reason why i wrote all this, is the magnificent scene of the Death Star attack when Darth Vader is continuously opening what seems to be a bottle. LOL
He was probably shooting or searching on “his radar” but it looks like he’s opening a bottle. Each time. Come on!
Can’t wait to see episode 5 tonight. As i know myself, i will not be back with comments so please, ravish with what I’ve said already.
