The Phantom Menace – Again

We went to The Phantom Menace a second time last night. It’s probably the first time I’ve seen a movie twice in the last 10 years. Susan and I both saw the original Star Wars movie quite few times. Susan saw it exactly 21 times at the theater. I lost count along the way but I’m sure it was at least that many. It ran at the theater for over a year and I used to see it with friend from high school nearly every weekend. Of course, that was the real, original Star Wars, before the “special edition”, before they stuck “episode IV” on the opening credits and re-edited the scenes, back when it was just one movie and nobody, including Lucas, thought there would be another.
