This is....my favourite film

I'm really not much of a film buff. It's not from lack of wishing - I have a huge list of want-to-see films - but more from lack of time and opportunity. The last time Beloved and I went to the cinema was 2004. And we never seem to have the time or motivation to hire and watch dvds.

And so my favourite film is really not terribly exciting. I'm clearly a child of my generation.

But Harrison Ford circa 1977.....


Yup, Star Wars. I could watch it over and over. I'm not a sci-fan, far, far from it (sorry, little Star Wars pun there). But it's got everything: an unassuming hero with an unknown past, an epic plot, a mission to save a world, a mentor, mercenary made good, scary bad guys, the little people up against a seemingly all-powerful force, and big hair. And Han Solo. I've seen it dozens and dozens of times.

My only advice is this. If you take part in a Star Wars drinking game, try to avoid having to drink on R2D2's lines. You'll probably pass out before you get to see Han.

I was 18 when the first one came out and I stood in line 12 times to see it at the theater. I love it.

I could live in the land of the Ewoks and be perfectly happy. However the blodd thirsty Storm Troopers could put a damper on things.

You know, I just watched it properly for the first time recently. I may have seen it as a child, and some parts of it seemed familiar so I'm sure I must have, but until I watched it a few weeks ago, I really couldn't have even told you who Han Solo was, much less the plot. But I really enjoyed it then we went on and watched every single one of them - one a weekend. Even the prequels.

so now I know what you're talking about!

Heh, I'm a bit partial to Star Wars myself - the old ones though, not the new ones!!

Yes, I definitely DON'T have a bad feeling about this film. I like the old ones best too!!
