Star Wars!!

Star Wars is a very important in modern western culture.  Almost everyone in Australia and almost every foreigner I’ve met in Japan loves it.  The movies are not the best, but they have a certain charm.  There are references made to Star Wars almost every day.  

I remember my dad renting the videos when I was a 5 or 6.  A few years later my uncle took me to see the remasters at the cinema.  Luckier still, I won the remastered episodes video tapes in a Coro Coro Comics competition.  Episodes 4, 5 & 6 are some of my favourite movies. The characters are memorable, the design is original and the story was simple, but grand.  

I was so happy to be able to watch Episode 7 on the opening night with Tyler.  When we arrived at the cinema we saw people who were dressed up as Star Wars characters.

We saw a father dressed as a Jedi and his son who was dressed as Yoda.  There was a huge line for Star Wars merchandise.  I didn’t expect Star Wars to be so popular in Japan.

We had high expectations for the movie and I believe the movie answered them.  It had good acting, humour, CGI (computer graphics) and a mesmerising story.  We both enjoyed the movie.  It has become one of my favourite movies and I hope you see it too!
