Can't blame you.


Indeed, can't blame me. But maybe you can blame those thousands of people behind the camera that created these wonderful movies. And those scriptwriters who wrote more than a battle scene with laser swords and some spaceships blasted but more than that; is about hope, friendship between races, the bond between people and machines, about love, betrayal, sacrifice and of course the dark side from each one of us...

I'd recommend watching the episodes in that order they were released

O I have. I recommend watching Rogue One and then A New Hope right after it.

The new upcoming movie from Disney, China. Something that puts in perspective the beauty of wildlife on Earth, it's nothing except fro breathtaking and awe-inspiring greatness. Planet Earth as well, just not the documentary crap, more of the montage-esque(not actual montages) of Earth's stunning natural beauty. I think there's no other better way to capture videography (I don't believe filmography what you mean here) than to show amazing clips of Nature.

I have to second the Truman Show also, that would be a very interesting movie for someone who has never seen a movie to see.

It is not my favorite movie by far, but it does embrace the madness that is film. I say start high minded otherwise they may get stuck in the shallow end of the pool. That or Top Secret!
