Luke, I Am Your Father...

30 years ago this weekend I was standing in line at the Brea Mall in Southern California with my wife to get into the just released second installment of the Star Wars Trilogy, "The Empire Strikes Back." Here's a great story on the anniversary.

Like many, I was stunned when I heard the line "Luke, I am your father" uttered by the epitome of evil, Darth Vader.

Growing up in So Cal, this was what summer was about. Movies, baseball, and hangin' out, usually at the beach.

Didn't life seem so much more enjoyable then?

Have a great weekend...

I try to like that movie more, since everyone else seems to say it is the best of the movies.

However, I rank it below Ep 4 and 6 ("Star Wars", "Jedi"). Above "Phantom" and "Attack", for sure. Not sure if I would rank it above "Revenge", but probably.

dmarks, it was a great event... where are the movies like Indiana Jones and Star Wars that bring people out by the thousands to wait in line?

Are those days done, or are the movies just not evoking that type of love these days...


Blogger dmarks said ... (4:09 PM) : 

There are just too many of them now. Yes those were the days.

My son and I just went and saw Iron Man 2. It was really good. Want to also go see the new Robin Hood, although I'm sure it can never top the the Flynn film.

I'd heard nothing but bad about the new Robin Hood. It doesn't look that good from the ads, either.


Blogger Tim said ... (7:22 PM) : 

Just saw it. Not too bad, but only a two star movie. Errol Flynn still did it better than anyone since.
