I took my sons to see one of the Star Wars prequels a couple of years ago, but I think I may have fallen asleep halfway through. As I've never seen the original, I don't have a clue who's right or wrong in the George Lucas debate now rumbling in some quarters. But the film blog
Libertas has a series of posts, if you're an aficionado. And you can always take a peek at my favourite little anecdote from Peter Biskind's book on the making of modern Hollywood. [Sorry for the faulty link earlier.] Meanwhile, two new books on blockbuster culture are reviewed here.
