shutterstock_557472154A long time ago (40 years), in a galaxy far, far away, I sat in a theater transfixed by the story unfolding before me: Star Wars! It was the most amazing film I had ever seen and to this day is still my favorite movie. It had such an impact on me that my wife – also a huge fan – and I named our first son Lukas after Luke Skywalker and George Lucas. Thank goodness Star Wars replaced my second-favorite movie, Young Frankenstein, or he might have been named Friedrich or Igor.
