So, with all the Star Wars fever going on, for the education of those of us who haven't actually seen this epic yet, how about a marathon movie session this weekend? Start Friday night with the first three, continue Saturday night with the second three? If there's the set up for it - and hey, we live in a mansion and there's plenty of tech geeks, so there probably is - we could even do a projector screen somewhere large enough for all comers. That old ballroom, maybe? BYO blankets, pillows and movie snacks.

Should do IV V II III VI. That's the best order, and it gets rid of I which is just so so bad. No one cares about Jar Jar or bb Anakin.

Why would we watch them out of order? And skip the first one?

IV V VI is the original trilogy, and I II III are the prequels. The prequels are pretty bad, though, but they work really well to frame VI and set up the tension, so it's good to watch them right before VI. But I doesn't really add anything to the story and everything important is repeated in II or III, anyway, so it's not worth wasting 2 hours of your life.

Also, IV and V are the best of them all so you should just start with those, otherwise you won't be interested in the rest. Trust me.

I am still confused but I bow to your expertise.

We should be watching them in Machete order. It's the best.

That is the Machete order.

Yes but Episode 1 is still worth it for Qui-Gon and Darth Maul.

Oh thank you I am sick of pretending I know what people at school are talking about.

(Yes, I googled it, I got overwhelmed and confused and closed the browser very quickly.)

Oh god I never got the chance to see those. I'll see about clearing time.

People keep telling me I have to. So. May as well?

I'll even promise to be pleasant to people - in a non-Stepford way.
