I don’t trust anyone who hasn’t seen Star Wars. I’m talking Episode IV: A New Hope, the original film that started it all. There’s really no excuse for not seeing it. It’s only two hours long and it’s been out for nearly forty years now. Everyone’s had plenty of time to catch up. Star Wars is a huge part of pop culture. Everybody knows about lightsabers and Darth Vader and that Luke made out with his sister. The film transcends the cinema, it’s more than just a movie. So I think that everyone should watch it at least once. If you don’t like it, that’s fine. At least you watched it. And if you do like it, then there are tons of sequels, spinoffs, and a whole extended universe for you to explore.
Not watching Star Wars is like living under a rock. And people shouldn’t live under rocks. They should live in houses with Blu-ray players and Star Wars on Blu-ray. I’m not saying you’re behind the times if you haven’t seen Star Wars. I’m saying you’re way behind the times. They finished the original trilogy. Then they finished the prequel trilogy. Now they are starting a whole new trilogy. It’s the perfect time to jump on the bandwagon. And I won’t talk to you scruffy-looking Nerfherders until you do.
