My favourite movie
Star Wars is a movie that has had great social impact, a fact that has often
gone unnoticed. A harbinger of a changing mood within the United States,
Star Wars was one of the few movies rated General that was released in 1977.
Where movies had for a decade been depicting ever more dark topics (Taxi
Driver, The Exorcist) Star Wars was a lighthearted adventure. While some
may decry the move back to swashbuckling from social comment, I for one
celebrate the fact that Star Wars made it possible for families to go to
movies together once again.
