Caine Gardner’s first memory was watching the opening crawl of Star Wars: A New Hope disappear into the night sky at the Meadowbrook Drive-In on U.S. 36 when he was four-years old. From that moment, he was hooked.
In addition to the Holy Trilogy, Caine grew up enjoying the fruits of ’70s and ’80s cinema such as Jaws, Rain Man and The Deer Hunter. Guilty pleasures also occupied much of his time, including Howard the Duck, Creepshow and Mannequin (Kim Cattrall was so hot).
Caine became the film reviewer extraordinaire for the Greencastle Banner Graphic in April 2008. In addition to writing film reviews, he is also the Banner Graphic’s sports editor.
Trivia: Caine received and viewed a reel-to-reel version of the original Star Wars in his youth over 200 times. He watched the film in a large closet with no sound.
Caine lives in Greencastle, IN, is married, has two beautiful daughters, and a psycho Jack Russell Terrier named Padmé.
