On this day in 1977- 36 years ago-really? “Star Wars” opened. The movie quickly became one of the most popular and biggest grossing movies of all times. The key to its success was people going back to see the movie over and over. I liked the first batch of Star War movies back in the day but the more recent ones I’ve seen once and have no desire to ever see again. My favourite Star Wars character ever? That is an easy question- Darth Vader.
