It was intense. We did not agree in the end. Return of the Jedi was actually the very first movie I ever saw in the movie theater. I was seven. It took a lot of sibling argument and hunting through IMDb theater screening records to figure out that it was not, as I insisted for a long time when I was young and silly, an original release but the re-release in 1989. Thank you, older brother, for insisting on a movie birthday party.
