    I just can’t subscribe to the idea that the world would be a better place without Star Wars. As a kid I actually sat on a big piece of rusted farm equipment in the desert while the sun went down. Red sky, a slight breeze, and twinkling of stars helping me to imagine star ships hovering in orbit while a whole galaxy of adventure awaited.

    No. It’s just a series of films. It’s captured imaginations. It’s fun. It’s got huge plot holes and terrible science. But as it is only gratuitous SciFi anyway, it doesn’t really matter. Fortunately we have films like Bladerunner and books like Dune that set the bar. I enjoy Star Wars like I enjoy prawn crackers. They do nothing but they are sort of fun.
