Maybe it's a deep seated need for myths in our time. Maybe it's a simple need for spectacle. Maybe it's grand opera with lightsabers or just Flash Gordon with better effects. I don't know.
What I do know is that I love Star Wars, and I wish I had children of my own so I could pile them in the back of a giant yellow Ford truck and take them to the drive-in, where we would sit in wide-eyed wonder as the music thunders and titles scroll up the screen.
May the Force be with you.
What are your Star Wars memories?
