Mine is probably going to sound silly, but you have to remember it was 20+ years ago. It was the opening scene of Star Wars. You sit there and read the text as it scrolls up the screen and into infinity, then suddenly there is this ship, racing away from you across the screen! Then you hear - and almost feel - something else coming. Something big! Then, there it is! Starting as just a point of white, then angling out... and out! So massive, it eventually takes up the whole screen! The Imperial Star Cruiser! I actually gasped, and may have ducked! And I wasn't the only one! It was just awe inspiring!
Movie goers back then had never seen anything like this! We were used to space ships that you could almost see the wires moving them, lol, and Star Wars, from that first scene, just blew all that out of the water (or sky, I guess). Even now, even knowing how it was done (kind of), I still feel the same way when I see that scene on the big screen (the best way to see it!).
Okay, as soon as you've stopped laughing at my response, tell me what blew you away.
