Not to harp too much on this but this was hands-down Hayden's best scene (3:00); actually, I also shared reservations about his acting skills when I first saw SG, but this was what truly changed my mind. And he doesn't even say a word. Trust me, it's not what you'd expect.
(He's actually a little scary, but in an understated way, which gives you some idea of what Lucas squandered. :roll:)



(It's the last five minutes of the film, so I guess it's pretty much a super-spoiler, but it's not like we already don't know what's going to happen since it's based on a true story and all. Basically throughout most of the film the writing staff really dislikes Peter Saarsguard's editor character and constantly stands up for Hayden's pathological liar character. By the end they finally realize how wrong they were. :? )

Oh wow this is adorable! :). Basically a dad filmed his daughter’s reaction to hearing the: “I am your father,” line while watching Empire Strikes Back for the first time.

Actually this is part of a recent trend; there are many similar vids on YT of children reacting to this moment. :)

So, I guess I'm the last of the original theatrical "Don't be a sucker, Luke, he's lying his pants off!" generation? :(

Funny you should say that...actually one of the commentators posted that when they first saw the film in theaters, they were absolutely SURE it was a ruse. And that Obi-Wan actually killed Anakin. (Well in a WAY I guess he sort of did, remember: “I hate you!!” and then Obi immediately absconding? Honestly, I never 100% bought that he would just abandon the obviously powerless and half-dead “brother” that he basically raised. :roll:)

Don't remember how I found out, but I was spoiled on the whole "I am your father" reveal... of course nowadays it's near impossible not to be! So many shows and movies parody it. My favorite would probably be from the Simpsons.

I was spoiled by the novelization. I distinctly remember reading it in the back seat while on a car trip. I sat there, stunned, mouth agape, looking around at the rest of my family, unable to share what I'd learned!


...



Come to think of it, WHY WAS I READING THE NOVELIZATION BEFORE SEEING THE FILM ANHOW?!?!?

Because you couldn't wait.
The same reason we all read those MCU and Disney/Pixar kids' books at Barnes & Noble, a month ahead.

One of my weirdest Star Wars childhood memories was seeing Yoda for the first time and being ABSOLUTELY TERRIFIED. :roll: I know it sounds silly but I was like eight lol. I RAN out of that living room; then a few minutes later I ended up coming back and not being as scared. Wanna know why? Because he sounded so much like Grover! :P :wink:
