re: Martian Mail

Good eye WB! Straight out of Area 51! And the descending stars give it a "beam me up" aspect. Love it!

The 'runway' of stars brought to mind an opening movie credit scroll I saw just the other day.

re: Martian Mail

the mashup was of IV, V, & VI, and, yes, a monumental disappointment. No new territory explored, and the homage to arthritic icons was a terrible mistake. My favorite part was supplied by the adult behind me, who wanted to know who that character was who received the light sabre.

Disney made a fortune and put the final artistic nails in a space vampire's coffin..... it will rise again, but only to generate more money. Shame on Lucas for selling to such an uninspired crew.

re: Martian Mail

My wife and I rather enjoyed Star Wars Episode I — The Force Awakens. Yes, it is derivative, and even forgettable, but all of these years after the original, it was nice to be reminded of some of the scenes that have became sic-fi tropes. I love speeders (even rusty ones that sound like old John Deere tractors), and cute 'droids, X-Plane fighters, and especially the cantina.

Neither of us was disappointed by the film, just not enthralled. With so much garbage coming out of Hollywood, it was nice to feel that we hadn't once again wasted our money.

We saw the first Star Wars film on a summer trip. We had to stay overnight in Great Falls, Montana because our almost brand-new Jeep Wagoneer had pooped out (once again), in the middle of a two-lane bridge at rush hour; it needed a new light-speed actuator, or perhaps just should have been junked then and there. It's been German and Japanese cars for us ever since that trip. Anyway, that evening we went to a movie that we hadn't even heard of, which was, of course, Star Wars Episode IV — A New Hope . Our son, Paul, was years old and small for his age: he sat on my lap through the entire film, enthralled except for the Jawas, who scared him. For several years after that, X-plane fighters, the Millennium Falcon, and Star Wars books and records and action figures were standard childhood fare in our house. Paul's interest in science fiction and astronomy and space travel dates from that movie.

Here's a photograph of Paul on an astronomy outing, taken eight or 10 years after we saw the first Star Wars:

I suspect that my own adult interest in astronomy grew partially out of Star Wars. Members who haven't seen my Stars on Stamps web page might enjoy having a look at it.

Last week I ordered a Blue Ray disc of the original version of Star Wars. I'm looking forward to watching it again.

re: Martian Mail

Love Star Wars, we've had the original trilogy ever since it came out on VCR. However, I've only gotten in on bits and pieces of the more recent episodes. The grandkids like the animated series, but I never could get into it.

Ernie, thanks. I thought it was kinda fun.

Thanks Theresa, I'd consider it a privilege to qualify as any kind of an expert 'round here, but not a title likely bestowed on me anytime soon, given my level of knowledge in ANY given area.Happy
