Pierre was only passing on his opinion of the new Star Wars film which he has just seen in his local cinema. I have not seen the film yet but am not in a hurry to see it either. I have heard the "vox pops" of people leaving the cinema having just seen the film and it was not encouraging as most people thought that it was just "OK" and a few thought it was great. So I am in no hurry to see it. I could wait to see it on DVD but I think a film should be watched in a proper cinema with a real audience where you can share the excitement with others. When they laugh, I laugh and when they cry, I cry. The reaction from the audience is so important to making the film a success or not. Watching it at home is not the same. Anthony Daniels and Kenny Baker ( C3PO and R2D2) are the people's favourites and I know them personally, Kenny Baker is a cabaret singer and appears in the "mini tones"act so Star Wars for him is just 4 weeks work. He co starred in "Time bandits" with David Rappaport who committed suicide after a bout of depression due lack of acting work. To survive in the film world you need another source of income eg show business. The 1977 Star Wars film broke all the rules in film making techniques and hasn't been surpassed imo. It was one of the greatest films ever made.
We would love to hear your views of the film as you may think it is stunning and is better than the original 1977 film. We promise not to delete you before reading it.
