I like the three film series; Star Trek, Star Wars, and Lord of the Rings for their entertainment value. But I really like the films about Hannibal Lechter for their educational value. I got a lot of usefull recipes from them. :hungry:

‘Blow Up’ 1966 A film by Michelangelo Antonioni

I saw Blow Up on first release, and maybe a couple of times since; and I remember it all - especially David Hemmings. Terrific film, also about the same time he starred in Passolini's 'Theorema' where he seduces an entire family, mother father son daughter maid, he had an extraordinary sexual magnetism which Passolini uses as the fulcrum of the whole film. BTW I enjoyed the first SW immensely - at least it took Han Solo some time to get from one part of the Universe to another, and there was some passion in it. What really enraged me about SW III was the complete abandonment of any semblance of logic and the constant preference for the picturesque - why the hell was Kenobe riding a big lizard when everyone else was on (admittedly daft) machines? And Luc Besson should probably sue for the ripoffs from 'Fifth Element' (pretty good film btw) And I'm a big Star Trek fan, though I own no videos, DVDs or memorabilia. And Bladerunner is probably the best SF film ever so there

Thanks for the input on Episode III of the star wars saga.I'll probably hold off until the crowds die down and then maybe go see it in a theater but I don't have big expectations. Is it just me or did this train wreck of a film series start derailing after The Empire Strikes Back?. The technology in the films is fantastic, but the character development and story lines have faultered. I think the introduction of Jar Jar Binks was so annoying and distracting that I found myself really hoping not to see him at all in Episode II. Lot's of websites out there that reference ways to kill off this obnoxious character. :) And Hayden Christensen is actually a very good actor although it's hard to tell in the stilted performance that Lucas gets out of him. Check out Life As A House starring Hayden and Kevin Kline to get a true idea of his talent.Anyway that's my humble opinion and I'm stickin to it :)

As usual I'm confused :blink: Star Wars was the first, and Empire Strikes Back was second...Wasn't there one called Return of the Jedi (slap me if that is Star Trek, I really don't follow these things)...Anyway, I swear there's been more than three of these Star Wars movies. :blink:

My kind of guy... :devilish: One question though, what type of device do you use to get to the yummy stuff underneath all that hair? I tried a chainsaw once, but it turned out a little bit too messy <_<

As far as I know, there are 6 now. For some reason they started with episode 3, continued with 4 and 5 and then shifted to 1, 2 and 3 :blink: Or something like that... :rolleyes: The only Star Wars stuff I like is the simulator ride at Disneyland! :lol:
