Anyhow as you can probably guess from all this I'm a fan too.

What makes Star Wars so great?
Well it could be the simple tale of Good and Evil ,where the bad guys are really bad and the good guys and Girls are plain good people,with no hint of the seedy nasty edge you get from so many films today.
Also it could be that it has a whole lived in feel to it.I mean you could picture yourself living there for real and it helps you to do so.
Star Wars also has that ability to get its message across to any generation and is good old fashioned family entertainment,with not a swear word,nudity or gratuitous violence in sight.
It has all the trappings of classical mythology that stands well with all the classic mythologies that are so popular in European folklore,the names Beowolf,Fionn Mac Cumhal,King Arthur and others could relate very easily to Luke Skywalker and their worlds have similar characters to this modern saga.

Whatever it is I'm sure you all have your own opinions on it.
Why not come on in and share them with us here.
