I was about 6 1/2 when Empire Strikes Back came out. I do not remember the Darth Vader “I am your father” reveal having any sort of impact on me. I’m not sure if I’ve just seen it a million times and so it’s all a blur at this point or if I just didn’t understand the significance of it.
A friend of mine had seen the film before me and told me that Luke gets his hand cut off. I vividly remember having that conversation. That was shocking! What! Luke get’s his hand cut off! How is that possible! When I saw that he got a robot hand at the end I was totally cool with it. Maybe even a little jealous.
Today’s Maximumble is disturbed.
