On This May the 4th I Have Only Seen One Star Wars Movie
On this “May The Force (4th) Be With You Day”. I can say I am one of the few who haven’t watched all of the “Star Wars” movies. I haven’t. When I tell people this I usually get a look of disbelief. There is a reason. I do own Disney+ so if I wanted to I could binge watch them all so that I can right this wrong.
I blame it on my babysitter growing up. I was about 4 years old when the original “Star Wars Episode IV - A New Hope” came out in 1977.
First don’t get me started on the whole “it’s episode 4 but yet the first “Star Wars” movie to come out. That right there may have lead me to never watch another one. That, though, is not the reason that was the one and only “Star Wars” movie I have ever watched. Yes, I do still know a lot of the plot lines and revelations. I just never watched the other movies.
So again here I was four years old and my babysitter, Chrissy, who at the time I really loved, took me to the movies. She took me to see “Star Wars”. Now I was four. Was it age appropriate for me? Maybe not.
Looking back I know she wasn't taking ME to the movies. She was meeting friends of hers at the movies. She was just stuck with me. I will say that what she said to me when Chewbacca appeared on the screen was not. She told me if I was not good (hey maybe I was acting up a little bit, I don’t know or maybe she didn't want to be bothered with me when she was with her friends) Chewbacca would come off the screen and get me. Chewbacca! I was four so I didn’t realize he was a good guy and wouldn’t do that. I just know that freaked me out. Pretty bad. Bad enough to never watch another Star Wars movie.
Since that day I never ventured past that movie ever. Episode IV was the one and only Star Wars movie I ever have watched. Should that change? Should I give them a chance? Comment below
