I think STAR WARS is a good movie, but I'm not a huge fan. If I'm in a sci-fi mood, I'd much rather watch THE ANDROMEDA STAIN or 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY or ALIEN or WAR OF THE WORLDS (1953) or . . .

you like STAR CRASH though, right?!

But of course!  Thumbup

For all those new to this, Star Crush is a delicious and nutritive beverage made with only the finest of galaxies. And a touch of Christopher Plummer.

Due to the horrifying nature of this film, no one will be admitted to the theatre.

I was five when I saw Star Wars in the cinema, months after it debuted in the US (we got everything late in Australia).  It was the most thrilling thing I'd seen in my five years, and I couldn't stop talking about it for days and days.  Many figurines and toy guns were bought.  I still have my Han Solo blaster, midsize articulated Boba Fett and miniature Darth Vader.  Over the years, I've seen almost all of the sequels in the cinema with the exception of the latest films like The Last Jedi and Solo. 

The prequel trilogy was cool but didn't really do it for me, and the The Force Awakens was a mixed bag of extreme nostalgia, annoying social tropes, and bizarre non-canon plot devices.  The Last Jedi was getting some seriously bad reviews so I've chosen to wait for the DVD, but I did enjoy Rogue One in the cinema.

I thought home video killed cheap double features, & big epic movies helped cinemas remain relevant. E.G. Most folks need something large & impressive to convince them to go to a theater now that they can do the same from the comport home.

I hate f**king STAR WARS (1977). I hate all the sequels too. And the lunch boxes and action figures and sex toys ( ok- I made that part up).
I went and seen STAR WARS  (Copyright 1977) and wasn't impressed. I had already seen PLANET OF THE APES and 2001 on the big screen by the age of 8. STAR WARS was stupid big budget Flash Gordon. I never liked Flash Gordon.

But that's not the only reason I hate FLASH GORDON (1977)- oops- I mean- STA- well you know what I mean-!
I hate it because it took my favorite magazine- FAMOUS MONSTERS and turned it into Famous Star Wars.
And it killed any chance of our small home town theater playing cheap double bills.
 It was a slow death- but million dollar s**t like STAR WARS killed it.

Don't blame Star Wars for the death of double features alone.  It was coming before Star Wars.   That just accelerated the process.  The death of "Drive in" type movies (grindhouse and exploitation movies) was already on the way out.  The drive-ins themselves were sitting on valuable real estate  as the population grew.   Audiences were expecting more for their entertainment...and George delivered.

Star wars kinda created the ''used'' and ''lived in'' sf movie.  Prior to sw,  sf universes were usually bright,  sterile and antiseptic,  like star trek, 2001, Etc.  That alone makes it an important. Movie.
