This weekend we watched both Star Wars (Episode IV: A New Hope) and The Empire Strikes Back with the kids. One thing that really struck me is how excellent the second movie (“episode V”) is. It’s really well made, and the cliffhanger ending is just awesome.
We watched Star Wars on Friday night at our house. Sunny was a little scared watching the first movie, so we allowed her to bring her phone with us to a friends’ house to watch The Empire Strikes Back, so she could watch My Little Pony or something. To our surprise, she was glued to the screen the whole time, and didn’t seem scared by the second movie.
JH was into both of them — at 8 and a half, I think he’s just about the perfect age for Star Wars.
