Am I the only one in the country totally unmoved by the whole Star Wars franchise since it first appeared nearly forty years ago?

I believe it is some kind of sci-fi thing with a guy in a crash helmet called Darth.

According to my 5yr old grandson - Episode V (the second film) was the Vampire strikes back. :0)

If your not a SiFi fan then this piece of escapism isn't for you, It's not even good SiFi, basically "cowboys and indians in space".

I've heard they've brought back the original 'stars' Fisher, Hammill and Ford for the latest one to help boost the ratings ... a bit like wot they do on Eastenders from time to time.

I can assure you you are not alone in being unmoved by it morddwyd.

I echo Devil Fish, a total waste of celluloid( or DVD ) as far as I'm concerned.

Loved the original three, loathed the prequels.

Must say if it is the sort of thing that floats your boat the trailers show the new ones have real promise.

No I'm not obsessive, I don't claim to be a Jedi in the census, I don't have oodles of star wars toys (Mores the shame some of the originals now worth serious brass). Nor have I any intention of trying to persuade anybody to like it. If it's not your bag find something else, life's too short.

Star Wars was great in the early days, but I have been underwhelmed by the later offerings.

I never got into it at all.

Long ago and to a galaxy far far away is where these films should should be exiled!
