I’ve long grown up and out of Record Store Day and ’FREE’ Comic Book Day - I’ve never liked queues, and there are very few things that make long-term queueing anyway worthwhile. When I used to indulge in Free Comic Book Day the whole thing was fraught with disappointments - you queue for an hour or more selecting 5 preferred free comic books from the longlist - but unless you were out queuing the night before - most or even all your first picks are gone by the time you ...

May is going to be a bumper Star Wars month chiefly for the release of the Han Solo origin film which hits cinemas on the 25th - one for 4DX for sure. As well as the obligatory Cinema Kessel Run, Lego has also been busy of late with several enticing Star Wars sets - including the slightly fresher Millennium Falcon from the aforementioned film. It has several pop-up panels which expose lots of lovely interior details.

 

Also featured in the above visual is the forthcoming Ashigaru ...

In years past I have singled out various bits of new Star Wars merch for your purchasing consideration. This time I will just give you two links - one to Lego (here) and one to Forbidden Planet (there) - those should both sate your cravings for new Star Wars memorabilia.

 

Instead, we turn our attention back to the original universe that started / spawned this whole journey / saga we now celebrate - the still most significant cinema event of my life - when I first saw Star Wars ’A ...

To all you Jedis and Siths, Rebels and Imperialists we wish you an enjoyable commemorative Star Wars Day and pray to The Force for the release date of the 3D Blu-ray version of The Force Awakens, which is long overdue. For all of us Star Wars fans, there has never been more ado about matters relating to Star Wars than exactly now.

 

After a successful reboot of the film franchise, we can now look forward to a whole heap of feature films, starting with ’Rogue One’ on December ...

This year’s Star Wars Day most likely heralds the biggest year in Star Wars since 1977. Expectations are at fever pitch for the next instalment in the franchise - ’Episode VII The Force Awakens’. There’s already mass hysteria over possible plotlines, reunions, revolutions and revelations, especially which is the latest addition to the Jedi ranks? The newest trailer should not leave any Star Wars fans in doubt that they will be royally entertained:

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away....

 

Star Wars was my introduction to Science Fiction, and has been a significant presence in my life ever since I watched it as child of 8 with my brothers and a gang of kids from the neighbourhood. In Iceland there was a 12 year age limit on the film, but our flight-engineer neighbour chaperoned us kids and pushed the protesting cinema ushers out of the way.

 

I was mesmerized from the very first minute - the 20th Century Fox logo ...
