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 ...)
