ATTACK OF THE DRINKING GAME!by gregor42 (Parson)

OK, to keep this on-topic I''l answer the question first....
STAR WARS (later known as A New Hope - what a stupid name for such a wonderful movie...) It was perfect on it's own. It was groundbreaking, exciting, breathtakingly NEW. It had great actors: Harrison Ford, Carrie Fischer, and Sir Alac Guiness to mention a few... it had great plot, it had subtext, and it had The Force, a mystical thing that was hard to describe but could be instantly related to.
It did not need to be edited. The scene with Jabba was not necessary, the extra buildings in Mos Eisley were not needed, and naturally one of the best scenes was DESTROYED.....Greedo shooting first.... STUPID. And having Boba Fett standing there next to Jabba was also unecessary.
It truly didn't NEED any sequels at all. That being said, The Empire Strikes Back, another bad title, is by far the most dramatic. Hell it HAS drama, the rest of the sequels simply don't.
SO.... NOW ON TO THE GAME
I won't give my opinion of SW2. It's pointless & redundant. No wait, I DID just give my opinion... ;-D
Anyway my wife & I have invented a drinking game worthy of watching this film. (If nothing else it'll help you get through the whole thing.)
It goes like this:
Watch the movie with LOTS of beer. Every scene that comes up, someone yells out the movie it was STOLEN from. Then everyone else drinks. UNLESS, someone else calls out an EARLIER reference that was ripped off.
Here are some examples to get you started. Please feel free to respond with your own!
So that's the idea... Now you can blame your alcoholism on Georgey boy and yours truly.
Wait! This isn't a Parachute, this is a Backpack!
