If you have any kind of online presence, or indeed an actual social life with real people and all that junk, the latter few months of 2015 will have seen you fall into one of two camps: first were the so-called nerds who were counting the days until the new Star Wars film arrived with varying degrees of excitement; second were those who were unable to understand what all the fuss was about and couldn't give two pieces of monkey crap about anything including the words 'Star' or 'Wars'. I have definitely been in the former camp. Like many around my age, I grew up with the original trilogy of films. I probably didn't see them at the cinema as I would've been too young (certainly for the first two), but I watched them on trusty VHS over and over again, had tons of toys and action figures thanks to my lovely parents, and all sorts of other stuff. I even had Return of the Jedi bedding! These were happy years and ones I fondly look back upon often.

|Hmmm, I swear I've seen these guys somewhere before...|
|Is it me or do the new 'Troopers look less scary?|
|At least it's a nice setting for a brutal slaying...|
|Scenes like this will give you such a buzz...|
