"Empire" is one a lot of SW fans seem to rate as the best, but I bet George Lucas thinks "Why didn't I shoehorn some Death Stars in there?"

I don't know about Halo and Call of Duty, but BTTF2 was made back-to-back with BTTF3 so there was no danger we wouldn't see what happened next after the letter was delivered in the rain.

Finished the classic trilogy with "Return of the Jedi", which I felt was a little too long for its own good, but a good finale to the story.

24 season 2. The wife is loving it.

She's also loving Parks and Recreation, up to season 2 of that as well

No Death Stars but you do see the Super Star Destroyer for the first time..

We also see why the Imperial Pension Scheme never pays out to its troops, hack off the Lord Helmet for suffering some misfortune or other and then suffer from a force choking grasp. Either that or be set into front line combat and take 'yer' chances there! Smile

In my opinion you can't beat the original. But Empire and Jedi are both worthy sequels.

Wasn't Superman II also filmed 'back to back' to the original? Good old Kneel Before Terrance Stamp Zod.. and of course yet another film with John Ratzenberger (is there any film he isn't in? Pfft )

EDIT:
Indeed Wikipedia says this:

"The film and its first sequel were originally conceived as one film, with Zod and his evil conspirators returning later in the film to challenge Superman, but the screenplay was so long that the producers elected to split it into two parts. Both parts began shooting simultaneously, but production on the sequel was halted partway through due to budget and time constraints. "

Probably explains why it fits and works so well

I'm glad he didn't! I rate 'Empire' very highly - it's one of those very rare occasions where I think the sequel is as good or even better than the original.

Empire is famous among rebellious SW nerds as the best of the original six, and the one that George Lucas had the least to do with as a director. Coincidence?

Doctor Who: Deadly Assassin, and they used some of the same locations where Blake' 7 shot- Betchworth quarry, and the botanical gardens where they shot the scenes with Zil.

Can't be that much of a coincidence, he had nothing to do with the Force Awakens and that's the worst of the bunch! Oops

In my Trek rewatch I'm up to season 7 TNG and season 2 DS9.

Versailles - Series 2: I'm completely transfixed. Elizabeth Charlotte - Princess of Palatinate, second wife to Philippe is a brilliant addition.

I loved the first series; sadly, I never really see the BBC advertise it properly e.g., interviews with the cast on high profile shows.

And ignore the 'salacious and saucy' headlines the show receives from a predictable media : acting, production values, direction, script ... it's must-watch telly in my opinion.

Love the new princess - her bluntness and straightforward nature amongst the weirdness of Versaille has made her my new favourite character. I do like the little bit of real history they tell you about at the end of each episode, it's interesting to see how similar the characters are to the real ones.

I bet the French court of the time is pretty much as portrayed in this series

Indeed I bet similar acts are going on else where in Europe too

So, searching through the options on Amazon Prime/BBC iPlayer for something to watch while doing the ironing, decided to give this a go, and watched episode 1 of series 2. The disadvantage of course was that not having seen any of series 1, I had no idea who anybody was, who was doing what to whom (and why). But I agree that it looked fabulous. Maybe I'll check out ep 2 next time I have some ironing to do.

Tonight's viewing was the 2012 Judge Dredd movie, starring Karl Urban. Superb!

Still haven't seen the 2012 Dredd, just haven't got around to it.

I just started with "The Crown" on Netflix...episode three and I am still amazed. I know a lot about British history but I always have to go to check what is going to happen. It is like a real life spoiler Grin
The music is outstanding and acting is not even acting, those guys are perfect Smile

Also, I basically cried through whole second episode, it was so intense!

Saw Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 with Della recently and I thought it was amazingly boring.

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade & James Bond - Moonraker

Purely for the footage of Venice.. Although it was funny to see how Venice morphed to Tilbury Docks in Indiana Jones. Also in Moonraker the glass factory within Venice should be on the island Murano to minimise risk of fire spreading and certainly not just off St. Mark's square. Of course both films are loaded with Blake's 7 actors and are both a bit of fun Smile.

Venice is one of the most photogenic (and photographed) cities in the world. You can also catch it in episodes of 'Brideshead Revisited'.

It's at its most off-season atmospheric in 'Don't Look Now', but if you've never seen that film, you might want to watch it after your holiday, rather than before!
