A Long Time Ago…

There are some movies that, despite having the odds stacked against them, managed to become cultural phenomenons, influencing the lives of millions.

Star Wars was one of those movies.

Before it opened in 1977, no one thought it would be a success. Theaters weren’t interested in it. The studio and George Lucas himself had no real faith it would make a blip on the box office.

Everyone was really wrong about that.

It was the first real blockbuster film. It set off a new trend in scifi entertainment.  It broke box office records and spawned a multi-media empire that nothing compared to.

The original trilogy had a pretty big impact on my life. Now we’ve got a new trilogy starting off. We live in magical times, indeed.

Watch me gush about Star Wars in today’s vlog.
