Merry Chistmas to one and all.

Ditto.

Also, karma's a bitch. I got a Christmas prezzie: 'Star Wars, the first Trilogy' by Donald F. Glut and James Kahn. :rofl:
Doesn't matter really. A book is a book, a movie a movie. Still going to read it.

There are elements of the prequels that could be good or at least interesting. The movies are just terrible.

I got a dozen home-made butter tarts (aka tutter barts) from my mother for xmas.

They are heavenly and to die for. :)

:eek: I'm just discovering that butter tarts are a uniquely Canadian thing. Who knew?

One day I'm going to have to arrange a dinner of poutine, peameal bacon, Montreal smoked meat, maple syrup, smoked salmon, nanaimo bars and butter tarts. :lol:

Washed down with a bottle of ice wine from Niagara of course - the finest in the world! :thumbsup:

(though I'm afraid no ice wines from Ontario this year - we had no 'first-frost'!)

The first trilogy is the first three movies which were made, at least that's how it's interpreted in this book. Reading it made me realize that I have in fact never seen the second one (The Empire strikes back). The scenes on the snow planet and Yoda's place don't ring any bells at all.
It's rather badly written and/or translated. It's clearly targeted at today's teenagers with their limited vocabulary and their anachronistic idioms. Heck, the one cute thing about the whole series isn't even translated, i.e. Yoda's speech mannerisms. Disappointing, it is.

There's a hell of a lot more wrong with the Star Wars universe but that's for when the book's finished (unless I forget of course).

Dude! Empire strikes back is the best of the lot! Are you sure you just haven't seen the first part? Empire is the one with the Big Vader Reveal.

Nope, finished that part and nothing rang any bell, including the reveal you're alluding to.
Well, that or my memory is getting really bad.

PS From what I hear from other people that reveal wasn't as big a thing in Dutch speaking countries since 'Vader' is the Dutch word for Father. Apparently many people around these parts expected him to be someone's father from the get go.
