“THE BEST” -Vs- “MY FAVORITE”: Pilot Episode

Alright, My Peeps…

…This Is A Subject I’ve Touched On Many Times In My Daily Rambles.

Some People Sincerely Do Not Understand The Concept Of…

THE BEST

Vs

MY FAVORITE

…Since They Don’t Understand How Someone’s Favorite Something Isn’t Also The Best Of Whatever It May Be.

In This Series…

…I’ll Be Discussing Different Films…

…Songs…

…Albums…

…Books…

…Whatever I Can Think Of…

…To Showcase The Point That…

THE BEST

…Doesn’t Have To Be…

MY FAVORITE

.Period.

In Today’s Episode…

…I’ll Be Taking On TWO (2) Exceptionally Popular Film Franchises…

INDIANA JONES

&

STAR WARS

πŸ˜€

Shall We Begin?!

LETS!!!

*** *** *** *** ***

*** *** ***

***

First-Up…

INDIANA JONES

πŸ™‚

I’m Beginning Here As This One Is The Hardest To Sell Others On.

Now…

…Which “INDIANA JONES” Film Is Most Widely Accepted AND Agreed Upon As Being…

THE BEST

???

Well…

…That’s A Simple One.

RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK

…Is By FAR Considered To Be…

THE BEST

…Of The Entire “INDIANA JONES” Spectrum.

.Period.

Do I Have A Problem With That?

Nope.

WHY?

Because I Accept The Fact That…

RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK

…Is…

THE BEST

…For That Series Of Films.

HOWEVER…

…Is It…

MY FAVORITE

???

???

Honestly…

…NOPE.

So What Is?!

Well…

INDIANA JONES And THE TEMPLE Of DOOM

…Has Always Been…

…And Will Always Be…

MY FAVORITE

.Period.

To ME…

…It’s The Darkest Chapter In The “INDIANA JONES” Saga…

…And It’s Honestly The Most FUN Flick Of The Bunch.

I Remember Seeing It As A Child And Becoming An Instant Convert.

I Loved…

RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK

…But I Loved Loved LOVED…

INDIANA JONES And THE TEMPLE Of DOOM

…Even More So.

Sue Me.

I Like What I Like…

…And I Love What I Love.

Next Up…

STAR WARS

πŸ˜€

This Is Another That’s Been A Hard Sell On Other Folks.

When It Comes To The “STAR WARS” Universe…

…People Always Seem Torn.

There’s The School That Says…

STAR WARS: Episode IV: A NEW HOPE

…Is The Best.

And Then There Are Those Whom Say…

STAR WARS: Episode V: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK

…Is The Best.

I Tend To Agree With The Latter.

I’m Of A Mind That Says…

STAR WARS: Episode V: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK

…Is Honestly…

THE BEST

…From THAT Saga Of Motion Pictures.

Nothing Wrong With That.

BUT…

…Is…

STAR WARS: Episode V: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK

MY FAVORITE

???

???

Again…

…NOPE.

What Is?!

STAR WARS: Episode VI: RETURN Of THE JEDI

…That’s What!!!

πŸ˜€

Again…

…To ME…

STAR WARS: Episode VI: RETURN Of THE JEDI

…Falls Into That Realm Of…

…Always Has Been…

…Always Will Be…

MY FAVORITE

.Period.

It’s The First Film I Honestly Remember Seeing In The Theater…

(Though "E.T." Was Actually The First Film I Saw In The Theater, I Just Don't Remember That Viewing Since I Was Only 2-Years-Old hehehe)

…And I Was Totally Blown Away!

At 3-Years-Old…

…I’d Never Seen Anything Like It.

And THAT MEMORY Has Stuck With Me MY ENTIRE LIFE.

It Became My Favorite In 1983…

…And It’s Remained My Favorite To This Day.

When I Need Something FUN And UPLIFTING…

…It’s Hard For Me To Go Wrong With…

STAR WARS: Episode VI: RETURN Of THE JEDI

I Get A Flood Of Old Memories Floating To The Surface Each AND Every Time I See It.

I Get Them Thar Goose-Pimples When I Watch It.

The Moment I Hear The Words…

IT’S A TRAP!

…I Nearly Keel Over With Grand Excitement!

STAR WARS: Episode VI: RETURN Of THE JEDI

…Is The Most FUN Flick Of Them All!

It Makes Me Feel Like A Kid Again…

…And Those Memories…

…To ME…

…Are ABSOLUTELY…

…POSITIVELY…

…WITHOUT A DOUBT…

…PRICELESS.

.Period.

*** *** *** *** ***

*** *** ***

***

Some Things Stick With Us Forever…

…And Ever…

…And Ever And Ever And Ever.

Y’all Know That.

You’re Human.

You Understand The Power Of The Mind.

You Know How It Works Well Enough To Know How That Goes.

Your “FAVORITE” Anything Does NOT Always Jive With What Everyone Else Considers “THE BEST” Or “THE WORST” Or “THE MOST FUN” Or “THE LEAST FUN”…

…Etc Etc Etc.

We’re All Our Own People.

We Have The Power To BOTH Agree AND Disagree.

That’s Part Of The Human Experience.

That’s Part Of Life.

Wouldn’t Y’all Tend To Agree?!

GREAT!!

I KNEW YOU WOULD!!!

  1. I’ve always had the same opinion about the best vs. my favorite. For example, I consider the best of the Star Wars films to be the original, but like you I’ve always had the most fun watching “Return of the Jedi.”

    • That’s Awesome, Dude.
      Somehow, I Knew You’d Know The Diff Between The Two. I Enjoy Your Reviews A Bundle, And It’s Always Obvious When You Really Enjoy Something You’re Writing About.
      Thanks For The Comments, Sir!

  2. This is a really intriguing way of looking at things. As an adult, I don’t think “Jedi” or “Temple of Doom” are the best (in fact, they’re the opposite), but like you, I enjoyed them immensely when I saw them. In fact, I’ve NEVER had a better theater experience than “Jedi.” When Darth Vader redeems himself at the end by killing the Emperor (hope that’s not a spoiler for anyone–it’s been 29 years, after all!) the theater burst into spontaneous applause. I’ve never seen that happen before or since.
