So, as part of my (now) traditional preparation before seeing a new Star Wars film in the theater, I run a mini-film festival in the comfort of my own home. Starting at Episode IV, we watch them in order of production.
Happily this is the first year that my son is really able to sit and watch them all with me. Well, we've really just started and are actually in the middle of ANH as I type this.
Him being just 7 years old, his best memories are of TPM, as he was old enough to see that in the theater, but he did see the OT previous to that (when he was around 4 or so).
Anyway, all of that is important, because in the middle of the scene where Old Ben is explaining Luke's father, my son turns to me and says, "Why doesn't he mention Qui Gon?" For those of you that pay attention to my frequent rants on these boards, you'll know that that is one of my biggest problems with TPM. I've never mentioned that to him ever, so it made a dad proud that jr. figured it out for himself. If a 7 year old can see the obvious problem, why is it so difficult for all of the 30-somethings out there?
In a strange coincidence of fate, last evening, my wife and I caught one of the new commercials for AOTC on tv. It was the Obi Wan theme I think. Anyway, after it ends, she turns to me and says something to the effect of "what happened to Yoda being the one to train Obi Wan?" I swear I've never mentioned this stuff out loud here. Nobody would have paid attention to me anyway. But there you have it.
