Hot damn indeed, my young padawan. Of course, the energy required to bend space and time is inconceivable...maybe a million of ours suns. I'm sure SYB has something to add to this.
Will wait for our Yoda to comment...

I can honestly say I have never seen it, nor have I any desire to do so. Isn't it just a 'cowboys and native americans' transferred to space type film?


Now '2001: A Space Odyssey' .....that's a film.

Ah, but it's not as simple as that. It's a story of fall and redemption, faith and love, wookies and ewoks...

Bonny Boy- seriously how can you not have heard or seen space wars? it was the first film I saw at the cinema as a kid, I loved Luke Skywalker for years, then as I got older preferred Hans Solo and I think at one point I had a thing for Darth Vader.....and every man I've ever known loved Princess Leia!

It may be a bit dodgy but it is an absolute cult film/trilogy... not so sure about teh new ones and I think whoever created Jaja Binks should be shot!

Star Wars rocks!
