I am a Star Wars geek.
Any time that any episode of the Star Wars movies is on TV, it is turned on. It doesn’t necessarily mean I am watching it closely. In fact, I’m probably not. But having it playing in the background is like spending time with an old friend. Just the company is nice.
Back in the day when these movies were playing in the theatres, we eagerly awaited the arrival of the second movie- The Empire Strikes Back at the time. Waited. Waited. Waited. Finally it was out and we crowded to the theatres. We sat on the edges of our seats as the story played out, and just as things were coming to a peak of tension….
…the movie stopped.
It didn’t end, because nothing was resolved. It just stopped. Right in the middle. I was SOOOOOOOOOOOO frustrated!!!! I was angry. I’m still angry, actually. I remain so embittered about that theatre experience that when The Empire Strikes Back is on my TV, I ignore it as much as possible.
Take that George Lucas!
These guys apparently know my pain. Check out this awesome video of How Empire Strikes Back Should Have Ended… (Thanks Kelsey!)
