- I liked your discussion of how it was originally very nerdy to hate Star Wars. I was that age and type of nerd. Love - Putney Swope & Sweet Movie & 200 Motels & Alex in Wonderland Hate - Star Wars & Jaws.Jun 8, 2012
- They were the Transformers of the day, I suppose.Jun 8, 2012
- Um hm.Jun 9, 2012
- Or perhaps the Avatars and Star Trek (2009) of the day more accurately?Jun 9, 2012
- I don't know. I haven't seen ST '09 and Avatar had a certain "quality blockbuster" and even artistic rep that neither Jaws nor SW had when they were released. Jaws came out of nowhere to devour audiences.Jun 9, 2012
