So, I recommend you get to see this very entertaining Star Wars parody. It's called Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Which strangely enough is the same name as the new Star Wars film that everyone says is the 'Dog's nuts' - strange bit of marketing if you ask me.

Like the first time we meet Luke Skywalker in ANH, Rey is a wayward inhabitant of a desert planet. But the fact that Rey is this trilogy's Luke represents a major shift in both the Star Wars mythos and the entertainment industry at large.

Intrigued by the headlines declaring Star Wars record-breaking figures (more than $1 billion and counting worldwide), I took myself off to see the film at my local cinema. I wish I hadn't bothered and saved myself ten pounds. What's more, I now have no intention of seeing any more instalments in the franchise, nor will I pay to see another movie by director JJ Abrams after this.

Star Wars surpasses genre and transcends viewing age. It is not a children's film. It's an adult film that happens to be suitable for children. As a result, it doesn't patronise children, nor does it attempt to second-guess what kids will find interesting and entertaining.

So why am I not jumping up and down and screaming 'utinni'? Because I feel it's time I saw other people, explored other franchises, and travel to other systems. George, it's not you, it's me.
