I went on a date with a young lass who made a very convincing argument for the second trilogy of Star Wars movies and why they should be appreciated. I complimented her for her thoughtful critique of those movies...and then let her know that she was attractive but oh so very wrong that those movies were better than the original three.

Love Star Wars, I’ll be sure to try this on some of my friends!

I am impressed with your thorough Star Wars knowledge. I remember the early Star Wars films of my youth, but, sadly the force left me a while ago and I struggled to answer a lot of your questions.
