"…What really got to experience the payoff of having read a book and then going to see it in the theater to see how it compared. And I just remember being bewitched from the first note of John Williams masterful score. I think the music was a big part of it, but also seeing the characters play out a lot of them exactly as I imagined them in the books. And of course, as a kid, kids are into magic and seeing the effects on the screen.…"

"…I'm going to take a different tack with this question and the movies I'm selecting. I'm not saying that I want to again for the first time, what because of nostalgia and because of an expression I had as a child, but rather that seeing it as a first time was a revelation.

"…I was old enough at the time to really understand what was going on. It was 15 when the movies was released, and I watched every single clip they would play on whatever Entertainment Tonight, anything on the news. My brother and I actually record everything on VHS, anything pertaining to we'd buy all the merchandise, although the Tops trading cards, the toy builds action figures, everything.
