Retrospective on the greatest movie EVER. [introduction]

2010/06/01

It’s The Empire Strikes Back. Hands down.

I know the fact that I saw it when I did, on my 9th birthday, is a key factor in my making that statement. That’s a formative, imprinting period in a boy’s life…after the parents’ major impact in rearing him are done (and my folks did it well) and before the crucible of adolescence and its potent cocktail of hormones are even getting primed and stoked.

It’s when a great — or not-so-great — story can make a difference in a young life. In this case, the story was a great one and the difference was positive.

Come with me down memory lane for the next few weeks as I look back on this seminal film.
