People that say, “I’ve never seen Star Wars,” make me lose my mind. Then, those people add fuel to the fire by emphasizing that they’re almost proud that they’ve never seen it. This is an attitude that I like to call “Cultural Ignorance™.” Star Wars (1977) is one of the most influential films of the last 100 years.
Not watching it is like refusing to read Dr. Seuss as a child or the Harry Potter books as a tween. It’s like refusing to listen to the Beatles despite the fact that they’re overrated. It’s even close to saying something like, “Shakespeare? Who cares?” I’m not saying that these people have to like Star Wars. They just need to try it out. Not liking Star Wars is one thing, but just completely refusing to even give it a chance is Cultural Ignorance™.
