OK, out there there's some movies that everyone knows, even if one hasn't actually seen them. For me, up until pretty recently, that has been Casablanca. Yupp - I've never ever seen Casablanca until two months ago. But you know, you don't *have* to see those movies, right? Because, after all, pop culture is so full of quotes and parodies and references that you still have a pretty good idea what it's all about. Right? RIGHT?
Weeeeell... Judging from my Casablanca example: *Perhaps* not. Basically I got some of the major plot points and of course all the famous quotes, including the ones that aren't actually in the movie, and for years I thought that, to be honest, after all was said and done, the movie sounded rather lame and not like one I actually would enjoy watching, so I didn't.
Imagine my surprise when I found out that it IS a pretty cool movie with some interesting characters in it and some pretty clever and imho funny plot twists. I reallyreally enjoyed finally seeing it.
Anyways - here's a video of someone re-telling the story of Star Wars. With the added twist (as if you couldn't predict this at this point) of never actually having seen the movie before. A friend recorded that and just added some pictures. :) Enjoy.
