Star Wars: First Reaction

30 01 2009

The scene: Alex sitting down to watch Star Wars. He sits mesmerized through the famous opening fanfare. We watch as the Imperial Star Destroyer captures Princess Leia’s small space ship. The tension builds. Ominous clanking, men in funny hats line up along the walls, blasters in hand, waiting… then BLAM! The Storm Troopers break through the door of the ship! Fighting! Mayhem!

“Oh no!” Alex exclaims, distraught. It’s the first thing he’s said since the movie started. “The door. It’s broken!”

Hmm, I think to myself. Maybe the finer subtleties of this movie will be lost on him.
