    I wouldn't call myself a fanatic. But I saw every Star Wars movie and loved them. Since I was about 10 years old when they came out, I had the figures and trading cards.

    Agreed, fan but not fanatic.(my dog's name is Jedi). Loved episodes 4 thru 6. Han Solo is a space cowboy and that character put alot of life into those movies. Episodes 1 and 2 not as good. Hope episode 3 delivers.

    How about you Winston?

    I still favour the original three movies.

    I thought the acting in the lastest version was lacking to be kind...I think I could have done a better job playing the future D.V. even though I have never acted.

    The last installment should be out next year....we will see how good or bad it is in it's telling.

    **

    And to share, I met Boba Fett and R2D2 once...they were flying to London from Washington Dulles. They were in Dc for some Star Wars convention before the first of the last three installments came out. Both were very nice and signed autographs - it was the only time I had ever asked! I have met many 'stars' and most bored me to death....

    I can tell of tales of Jane Seymour on a plane. She bought an economny ticket but sat her rear in first class. She gave the flight attendants and gate staff a hard time when she refused to move back to economy - first class was full. Eventually she was forced to but not without a few comments.
    Cal Ripkin flew out of Dulles and the airline wanted to have him escorted to their club...he refused stating he could find his own way around the airport thankyou. - So did Richard Dreyfus...neither wanted any fuss.
    Brad Pitt flew out and spent most of his time in the toilet from what I was told by a flight attendant...he feared annoyance.
    Princess Dianna was a lovely customer so I was told. She stood up and started doing stretching excersizes but what was very kind and curtious to staff.
    But Boba Fett and R2d2 - I forgot their real names, they were very nice gentleman....

    Please. The guy who played Anaken in the last movie is the MOST untalented person on earth. I actually laughed at this movie- not at the comedic parts, either. I cannot think of a worse actor.

    As far as stars, I have met my fair share. Most were asses. Jimmy Buffet was super cool as was Tony Randall. Neil Diamond is a class guy.

    I also worked for a guy when I lived in virginia who was an investor with jack kent cooke so he had parties for the redskins every summer. what asses they were. Of course that was in the days of joe theisman, john riggens and the so-called hogs. They may not have been real hogs but they sure were swine!

    Careful, Moi! You're dropping a lot of names there!:p:

    Seriously, though, talk about the ones that were asses. I love stories about famous people being jerks!

    That is insane! Especially consdering you're pretty big into sci-fi/fantasy type movies, right? My advice: skip 1 and 2 (by which I mean the 2 newer ones) and go straight for the 3 classics. I'm an 'Empire' man, myself, but they're all good in their own way.

    Here's something I was thinking about. There's really no way for them to bring closure to the pre-trilogy without it being very depressing. Think about it: the main character, the hero if you will, has to turn his back on everyone he loves, and on everything good, and become the leader of the dark side. It'll be interesting to see how Lucas handles it. I never saw Phantom Menace and absolutely loathed Attack of the Clones (Moi, you're right, that was the funniest performance of the year), so I''m not holding out much hope.

    Yes I thought he was terrible also....nothing there....

    Just give me a black cape and I can play the future Vader. No problem at all.

    Once in a Disney resort hotel - the all star basketball team was staying there - it was the Dolphin hotel and it was in 91 I think - anyway, I had seen all the famous basketball stars - they were fine, they signed autographs and all that jazz - all the kids that is...but the lobby was filled with hookers. Woman wearing more makeup than Bozo the clown...their dresses were made of string and heels the length of a player...it was the funniest thing I had seen..they were like swarms of bees...the players loved it - I am sure some of them made a few good bucks that night - the hookers not the players...well the players too.
