Sunday SciFi: Classic Star Wars Poster

Sunday, September 11th, 2011

Ah yes, the original 1977 Star Wars, not episode IV, not “A New Hope”, just a low budget SciFi film with a bunch of relatively unknown actors as stars and a director who’s last movie was about hot rods in the early sixties.   The version where Han shot first because he was a rogue, a smuggler, one who operated outside the law.

Star Wars was a  B movie, complete with the Wilhelm scream, and we loved it.

Quote of the Day

Thursday, March 11th, 2010

“The reason the first three Star Wars movies were so terrific, and the second three sucked so bad, is actually very simple. The first three were about rebels, shooting guns and driving fast, and speaking with American accents. The second three were about politicians, discussing treaties and holding court, and speaking with British accents.”

Friday B-Movie Pick: Star Wars

Star Wars

The 1977 original! The one where Han shot first! B-Movie? You betcha! Check out sets, the plot, and delicious evilness oozing out of the bad guys. George Lucas is a big film buff and this is a tip of the hat to multiple genres, including some Japanese classics and WWII flying Ace movies.
