Who knew that a movies series starts with Episode 4 instead of Episode 1?
I really felt like a newb this week while watching all the Star Wars movies for the first time with BHW.
I won't tell you about all the times we had to pause the movies so I could ask questions or have
something explained to me, this post would never end.
I decided that my favorite character was R2D2 by the end of Episode 4 (which is actually the 1st movie, still trying to keep all that straight). One suggestion I do have for this Lucas guy who
came up with Star Wars is that R2D2 needs some subtitles! His beeps and bops are awfully confusing for a first timer like me. I was also a little confused as to Natalie Portman playing more than one person at a time. I know part of the time she was a 'decoy' but they couldn't just get someone who looked like her or something? Episodes 4, 5, and 6 were awesome! Then we went back to Episode 1 and I just couldn't handle it. My mind kept thinking, who in the heck are all these people?!
I swear they weren't in the movies we watched before! It was then that BHW kindly reminded me that these movies take place before 4, 5, and 6. Such an easy detail to forget but oh so important.
All in all, if you haven't seen Star Wars, just watch them once in your life! They're not too bad!
I can't say that I'll be that 40 year old person in their mom's basement,
but R2D2 will always have my heart.
