Mike and I recently began this fun little project with Abby, introducing her to our favourite childhood movies. We started out with the Indiana Jones series, which she loved and we moved on to the Back to the Future series. We watched the first one this past weekend and she has declared it the best movie ever.
This project... which again, so much fun! I suggest you do this if you have suitably aged children. Maya didn't watch Indy with us, but did enjoy Back to the Future...... anyway this project has resulted in endless conversations between Mike and I about which movies should be on the list. So far it includes Ferris Bueller (for Mike as much as Abby as he hasn't seen it either!), Jurrasic Park, Gremlins, The Goonies (again Mike hasn't seen!!) and that brings us of course to Star Wars.
My question to Mike was do we show her the movies in chronological order beginning with episode one or do we show her them in the order they were released? He says we show her Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi and that's it. We ignore the other three movies. So my question to you, internet friends, is what would you do. Also a bonus question for those out there in the same age bracket... what other movies would you show her?
