We started doing our movie podcast earlier this year, and the first movie we covered was the original Star Wars (A movie I stubbornly only refer to as Star Wars.). Laci had not grown up with the Star Wars films, and while she had seen them once as an adult, she admitted she wasn’t paying close attention or giving them much of a chance. But this time, she was going to try to get invested in the story and the characters, and see what all the fuss was about.

What other movies have we been reconsidering?
