    Watched with my 2-year old son. Here are some of his observations:

    - The Death Star was "Moon" (that's no moon, son)
    - Every spacecraft was a "rocket ship"
    - "The robot (C3PO) walks on 2 legs!"
    - Chewbacca is his favorite character
    - Jawas are scary

These juxtapositions can be as simple as people of different religions praying to as challenging as images of a foundry followed by the ovens of Auschwitz. Should definitely be viewed in hi-def.

    Baraka marks my completion of Shawbin's Top 100.

    Had the pleasure of watching this with my 3-year-old. I loved it. He loved it. Perfect movie. What else needs to be said?
