I hope that as readers you will also watch the Star Wars movies again in chronological order and share your thoughts with me. I am starting this post because Star Wars is a significant work of art in our culture, and I want to study -- with a fresh outlook - how it speaks to our times. I want to understand the epic as mythology; as grand moviemaking; as one man's vision; as a statement about our world. So I will not fuss about the things I usually fuss about (too much CGI), unless I absolutely have a valid reason to do so; a reason based on my new watching of the saga. I will not take anything for granted; and I will endeavor to be objective and honest and call everything just as I see it. I hope you will watch me to make sure I stick to my guns on this.
I am going to be a blank slate here; sucking it all in, as if for the first time. I want no pre-conceived notions to spoil the series for me.
May the Force be with us.
