I spent four hours one Christmas season hunting an Ewok Village for the 5-year-old son of a woman I was desperately in love with back in 1983.

Got the village, didn't get the girl.


Those of us in our early to mid 20's got to see them on the big screen when we were 13-15-ish because of the re-release. So we got to enjoy what our older siblings/aunts and uncles/parents had been talking about for our entire childhood on the big screen. And a proud new generation of Star Wars Fans was born. And then almost died with the prequels.


I'm 36, so the original trilogy was part of my formative experiences. My girlfriend is 26, so it wasn't, but she loves it just the same. We both went to the exhibit a few weeks ago, but we went after 5pm, so as to avoid the massive crowds.

I want condo on Coruscant!


George Lucas, master of romance

Or perhaps it's just that Star Wars is such a culturally-infused experience that excited the imaginations of so many people, male and female, that couples had their "You too?" moment after they met.


God, I was 16 when the first movie cam out. Thanks a lot. Heh ...


Jealous!! Oh how I love Star Wars. I've always said they're my favorite movies.

Uh, Hillary went to Indiana to have a shot. (The reverse of my salad days.)

Those of us who are a bit older, after waiting years for it, saw The Phantom Menace and asked why someone had let William Shatner direct a movie again.

George Lucas, master of romance

His lovers' dialogues make the geekiest of real-life suitors sound like Cyrano de Bergerac in comparison, so I guess we owe him something for that.
