Book Description

George Lucas is a towering figure in the galaxy of big screen sci-fi entertainment. Few movies have changed cinema the way Star Wars did back in 1977 and even beyond their cultural impact, the original trilogy are still great movies - for a certain generation they’re cinematic comfort food, the sort of films that make you feel happy and entertained even though you know every single line. These viewing guides will make that experience even better. Ever wondered who that weird alien lurking out of focus at the Rebel briefing at Sullust is? Wanted to identify the changes between the cinema and DVD versions? Struggled to spot the in-jokes in the prequels? Your prayers are answered, because we’ve gone back through all six Star Wars movies to give you a fan’s ultimate viewing experience, complete with DVD timecodes. You’ll even find out who asked Boba Fett to be best man at his wedding. It's a complete unofficial viewing companion to all six films, from the makers of the world's number one sci-fi magazine, SFX. Remember, the Force will be with you, always.

5.0 out of 5 stars Indispensable for adult fans 12 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase
Ever been struck by the number of times that a character in Star Wars says 'I have a bad feeling about this'? Ever wondered exactly what sort of alien it was in the corner of a particular scene? Ever been baffled by the occasional similarities of Huttese and English, the continuity errors, or the failure of Jar Jar Binks to meet a well-deserved and grisly death? Or, alternatively, ever been on a train journey and wished you could take Star Wars with you? This book is for you. It analyses all six films minute by minute (with useful DVD timecodes), pointing out the funny bits, the less funny bits (more of those perhaps!), the cool bits (Darth Maul's double-ended lightsaber!!), the suggestive bits, the badly acted bits, the inconsistent bits - and, of course the bits where George Lucas made his regularly controversial changes.

This is a book for adult rather than junior fans of the films, due to the occasional slash fiction references and swearwords (the authors clearly have a wider vocabulary than Sebulba!). But it's great fun. It's also guaranteed to contain material that will be new to all but the most dedicated geeks. Plus, it's by the ever-reliable team at SFX. What's not to like? (Except for Jar Jar and the Ewoks, of course ...)

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting diversion 24 April 2013

Some interesting points and facts which encourage further enquiry. I look forward to watching the 6 film's (again!) With this to accompany. What is ironic is the book points out continuity errors anomalies and inconsistencies in the movies, maybe someone will do the same to the book as it is far from total integrity in this regard!
Overall though a good read for fans of the film's. Super geeks may find little new though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended 16 Jan. 2012

Found this by accident on the Kindle but as a bit of a Star Wars fan I absolutely loved it. Great details about how and why things happened on the DVDs - things to look out for, that kind of thing. I read through it on its own the first time and then plan to read it as I watch the DVDs again - any excuse!
