Book: The Star Wars Phenomenon in Britain
Time

Just read this book.

The Star Wars Phenomenon in Britain: The Blockbuster Impact and the Galaxy of Merchandise, 1977-1983

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Star-Wars-Phenomenon-Britain-Blockbuster/dp/1476666083/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1541075771&sr=8-1&keywords=star+wars+phenomenon+in+britain

Great book. A ton of memories of what it was like for us Brits waiting for Star Wars to be released over here in the UK.
Incudes release dates for London cinemas and general releases.
Also memorabilia that was released exclusive to the UK and behind the scenes of Palitoy and Marvel comics UK.
Magazine, tv shows and UK TV air dates and more.
Recommended.

<em>Solo: A Star Wars Story</em> — Official Review and Opinions Thread — <strong>SPOILERS</strong>
Time

There was a scene in the Falcon where L3-37 has a bit of malfunction and hits herself on the side of the head to start up again. As her data is now in and part of the falcon, could this now be seen later in The Empire Strikes Back when Han hits the wall of the cockpit to re-start the Falcon up?
Just a thought.

Thought I would dig out the Star Wars Holiday Special as I had not seen it through in years.
Blimey! That was a real test of endurance. Even worse than I remembered.
The best thing about this recent viewing was the Cantina scene. I forgot all about the Mos Eisley creatures from the film appearing. It was good to see the costumes and masks of background aliens in more detail than the film.

Time

After arriving at work totally knackered each morning after live streaming Celebration Orlando here in the UK, a guy at work asked me if I had Star Wars on Blu-ray. When I said no and explained why he was really confused. Looked at me in bewilderment. He had no idea at all about the original cuts and to be honest did not care at all. This same guy was confused as to where Rey and Finn were in Rogue One.
There lies our problem I think. The casual viewer. The public who see the films as just another movie to watch and then put to one side.
