  1. And here it is; the Star Wars post. The movie which made me love movies. My kids will definitely be exposed to Star Wars at an early age, much like I was.

  2. Back in the day, folks I knew were split: devotees of STAR WARS vs. afficianados of CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE 3RD KIND. I was among the latter and furious that it didn’t get a nomination. It was almost like a religious experience for some of us. Ah well, still love it and much prefer it to STAR WARS…never quite got in to the whole “Force” thing, though I did admire Darth Vader.

    • Ken, I never knew there was an initial split between Star Wars and Close Encounter fans, fascinating! Close Encounters is an amazing film, but I didn’t discover it until I was nearly in my teens, so I was already siding with Star Wars. Both films are important to me, and I wish Close Encounters had been nominated. Swap it in to replace Julia and 1977 may have been my favorite year yet.
