Have you watched all the spoofs of Star Wars as well?  I remember watching this one at my neighbor's house in the early 80's?  I remember it was on a betamax vcr tape next to their personal computer.  It was the home of a nuclear physicist, and he had all the cool dorky stuff.

None of the choices :D
I saw the first one when it first came out with my boyfriend, who was a rabid fan, and thought the special effects were good but the plot was lame. I saw bits of some of the others when others were watching it,, never felt he urge to watch any more of it.

Sorry, I read Heinlein and Asimov, I'd like an actual plot with my special effects.
:D

We need an option for "only one of them"

For me Star Wars is like Marvel. Yes I've got and watched all the canon and I've dabbled in bits of the non-canon.

However all that of it is fluff. It's stuff I'll put on if I'm really tired or I'm doing something else. Like Pearl said, the plots... do not take my full concentration.

If I want plots I read McCaffrey, Asimov or Pratchet, or I watch Star Trek, Stargate or Andromeda. Although lots of Andromeda is Kevin Sorbo re-enacting his role as Hercules and JJ Abrams is a cool Star Wars director who should never have been let near Star Trek. (Red matter indeed, hmmph!)


I won't consider you weird if you haven't seen them but I'm a geek and you won't under stand the references in my humour without it.

After a round of Star Wars movies, I like to re-watch the Family Guy spoofs of the first three. Some favorite moments are:
1) Luke rescues Leia on the Death Star.
2) Darth Vader choking subordinates.
3) R2D2 jumping rope.

John is damn near fanatical. He watches anything & everything  - multiple times, and as a result, I've watched all the Spielberg/ Disney movies as well as the Mandalorian series. John's vanity plates for both his car and his bike start with 'Sith' (the religion of the dark side). The so-called 'Baby Yoda' is ridiculously cute, as are some of the other characters, like the Ewoks, the little birds, in Rogue 1... But, I'm mostly just in the room, with it, and absorbing by osmosis, lol.

Another great spoof is the Lego animation of Eddie Izzard's "Darth Vader in the Death Star Canteen".

A reasonable diversion in a hotel room in a dull town if it's free.

Plots are comic book thin, effects are sorta cool.

I have used the quote "These are not the droids you are looking for!" on supervisors, who found it amusing, but found us nonetheless.

I've been a big fan all my life. I used to hate the prequels, but the more recent stuff has actually developed those stories out such that I can enjoy them too.

I probably watched the original three on VHS nearly a hundred times.

I liked swords and I liked lasers, and star wars combined them both into one weapon!

The lore is rich and fun for fans, you can enjoy the films, the shows, the conventions, the toys, the video games, the table top RPGs, the board games, the war games, cosplay, merchandise, theme parks, parodies, memes, and lots of other aspects as well.

There are few franchises as fully developed.
