A bit of an obvious one, but A New Hope was a really big part of my childhood. It's funny to think that tons of people still remember lining up to see the first Star Wars flick in theatres, while it came out waaaay before I was born. And thus, it was a childhood staple, cycled in with my Disney movies to be watched. Daily.
I have probably seen this movie hundreds of times, along with everyone else who grew up in the 90s. Today I put on A New Hope in the background while I worked from home. I looked up at the screen about once every ten minutes, while being busy doing other things, and still I've seen it so many times I can call out the next line. The music is helpful too. Try listening to the film sometime without watching. The music really tells the story as much as the dialogue does. I don't mind having this score stuck in my head all day.
Ooooh, it's an original trailer from 1977! Enjoy.
A little bit cheesy, eh? As addressed in How I Met Your Mother, this movie is a little estranging for anyone who hasn't seen it... In fact, I have a friend who never saw it until university, and when he watched it, he just didn't get it. I can see how fans build the movie up a bit too much. It was just too weird for him.
Look at his face!
