Tom Holland admits that he's never watched The Empire Strikes Back

04.11.2017

Tom Holland Spider-Man: Homecoming The Empire Strikes Back Captain America: Civil War

With the incredible amount of classic movies out there, it's pretty much a given that most of us have a good handful that we haven't seen; even so, there are still times when we're shocked to learn that someone hasn't seen a particular movie, such as THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK. After Spidey mentioned watching that "really old movie" during the airport battle in CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR, Yahoo! Movies followed up by asking Tom Holland what the actor really thought of the classic STAR WARS film.

With a slight reluctance, Tom Holland admitted that he's never seen THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK before explaining that he's not really a huge fan of the franchise. However, it seems that he was a fan of the new ones, saying that he thought STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS and ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY were "dope" and "great fun." Holland isn't exactly sure why he skipped the original trilogy and was quite embarrassed at having done so, after which the SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING actor dug an even deeper hole by revealing that he was even "more embarrassed to say that I loved [the prequel trilogy] when I was a kid." Ruh oh. Holland told Yahoo's Kevin Polowy that he would attempt to fill that EMPIRE STRIKES BACK-sized hole before they next met, but confessed that he's far too busy to watch any movies right now.

As our lives grow increasingly chaotic, it often becomes difficult to carve out enough time to catch up on all the movies we've missed, especially the classic ones, so I can certainly sympathize with Holland there. I've been making an effort to fill some of the gaps in my own film-watching history in recent years, but there are still so many left unseen. Which classic movie(s) are you embarassed to admit that you've never seen? I'll get us started. I've never seen CASABLANCA.

Tom Holland will next be seen in THE LOST CITY OF Z on April 14th and in SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING on July 7, 2017.

This is just weird.

I could understand this if he's never seen any of the Star Wars films, but he liked the new films and loved the prequels? "Wow! I am really getting into this story! What? There are three more chapters? Nah, I don't need to bother with them. I don't need to finish this story that I love." This makes no sense.

I never saw Casablanca either, or anything from the French New Wave, like Truffaut or Godard.

I love Stanley Kubrick, but I've never carved out the 3 and half hours needed to watch Spartacus.

Big difference between not watching a universally hailed and critically acclaimed movie and not watching your favorite pet take a shit for 2 hours.

He's like 19 or 20 years old. I liked a lot of shitty movies when I was a kid.

Can't blame this kid for liking the Star Wars Prequels, but I can express disappointment that he says he's not a fan of the original trilogy while also admitting he's never watched The Empire Strikes Back. Generally, I have to watch something before forming an opinion about it. I even forced myself to watch the new Ghostbusters.

I've never seen a lot of classics. Blade Runner, Godfather, Casablanca, 2001: A Space Odyssey etc etc...sometimes we just don't have the time or interest to watch old movies

You might as well say that you don't have any interest.

No, not a really big fan of the Fast/Furious series. You don't have to see all the old classic to be a fan of something. Just like I'm sure some people are comic books fans but haven't read all the classic comics that exist.

Well, while we're admitting things: I've never actually sat through all of Blade Runner.

Also, I am that guy who opens and stops the microwave with 1 second left and then doesn't clear the timer.

let's not be too hard on him

the movie is 37 years old. 17 years older than him. There are plenty of classic movies I hadn't seen, nor really cared if I saw when I was 20. Since then I have seen lots of classics, and there are still plenty I don't really care If I see or not.
That said, it's weird that he likes all the other movies in the franchise, and doesn't want to see the ones that are universally considered to be the best. To each his own!

I want to know what Adam Sandler's daughters think of the original trilogy.
