This month, today in particular, marks the 35th anniversary of Star Wars. This means Fan Boys and Comic-Con attendees everywhere are creating reenactments, and holding screenings of all six movies in their dark basement apartments. It’s a celebration of art, pop culture, and childhood. But you can be certain the original fans are pretending Episodes I, II, and III don’t exist even if they do star Liam Nesson & Samuel L. Jackson. Unfortunately, even if you boycott George Lucas’s attempt to reignite the imaginations of our childhood with over-the-top special effects and Jar-Jar Binks, it doesn’t change the fact that Star Wars no longer exists in its purest form unless you own a 1989 copy of the VHS.
