I’m also old enough to remember seeing A New Hope in 1977 — my first year at Auckland University, and all the others as they’ve come out. What a great time that was. I bunked off a lecture and went down to Queen Street to the Cinerama (I believe) and was instantly captivated!
As my four children came along they would join me and my wife for cinema visits to see each successive episode. Great family times!
I don’t have too many quibbles with your order but I’d not criticize Episode 2 as much as you do. If you buy the Star Wars universe (as I do) you are effectively along for the ride regardless of things like too much CGI.
Anyway — just wanted to say, ‘good job’ and, of course…may the force be with you — always!
