Overlapping Blasts From the Past

Now that Lost is over, it is time to return to the heart of this blog.... Star Wars.  

This clip is great--combining arguably the best Star Wars movie with 1950's movie-making:

It has been thirty years since Empire Strikes Back came out.  And it was the first time I really spent a lot of time theorizing about a work of fiction.  If Han can pick up and use a light saber, what does that mean?  While I, like most folks, did not particularly enjoy my teenage years (was I that annoying?), it was a great time to be a teenager at the movies.
