Star Wars according to a 3 year old.
I recently watched the original Star Wars (1977, enhanced edition) for the umpteenth time and was struck by two things–first how groundbreaking it was and, second, how some of the inside sets/scenes seemed to be influenced by Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey and to some degree Roddenberry’s Star Trek.
Likewise, it seems that the hanger scenes in Battlestar Galactica-Reimagined (BSG fans are gearing up for the fourth and final season starting in April) borrow from the rebel hanger scenes in Star Wars.
This all reminds me of those culturally backward folks who sniff and snort at the suggestion that sci-fi is myth that builds on myth not unlike any other myth. Why is it so hard for some people to get this? Minds locked in the past…?
