I love the Star Wars
13 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

"When Star Wars Ruled the World" . . . that title speaks volumes. Not many franchises can boast such a cultural impact. Or legacy, for that matter. I like idea behind this: crowd-source some commentary from a bunch of people who know a little something about the galaxy far, far away. When done right, this formula can work very well. The downside is that this is a VH1 production, and very much in tune with their "I Love the _____" shtick; lots of cutting, lots of inane comments from the talking heads. Chances are, you've heard these anecdotes elsewhere, but it's a decent featurette on the matter. At least they kept it strictly '77-'83, really concentrating the nostalgia.

6/10
