There's the dilemma. Is Star Wars so much of a 'must see' that I need to rush out immediately and immerse myself in it tonight - or, can I wait until the weekend. Should I wait until the weekend. Should I buy a ticket in advance, or at the door. And critically, why do I care? I've read the script. I know a large part of what has to happen because it's the second film in a series of six - and I've seen 4, 5 and 6. I don't know why I should care. Phantom Menace was a bit of a disappointment, after all.
But I do care. I hated Phantom Menace, but I own it on three different formats. I keep looking at Star Wars lego, hoping that it will be good. This is more than just a film, after all, it's a little slice of cinematic history.
Or is it? Actually, my main interest is how children of the future will see it. Daddy, why is the fourth film worse than the third? Daddy, what on Earth are Ewoks for....?
