The force has always been strong with me. I was born in the same calendar year that Star Wars made its worldwide debut.. I’ve always taken it as something of an omen that I was born the exact same year as the film franchise that redefined the movie industry as we know it. It played a large part in shaping my tastes as a movie buff. I’ve been a Star Wars fan for so long, that I sometimes forget that the relatively unconventional way I initially became acquainted with it. I was indoctrinated long before I was even old enough to truly understand it.
