So typical night Friday night would be playing cards & then off to see a movie in the Fairview, now as often as not I would fall a sleep half way through the film as late night films could be anything really you just had to take the good with the bad.
So this Friday night the movie is Starwars by this time it is probably finished showing in the picture house's as was the norm for the late night movie, & even though I've always being big into scfi I hadn't seen this film as after all it's a kids movie with silly robots right, so I agreed to tag a long happy in the knowledge that if it crap I could always go a sleep.
So I'm sitting there with coke, (drink kind) popcorn & the rest of the usual goods the film starts with A New Hope coming up on the screen fallowed by the rest or the writhing & then the camera seems to pan off into empty space with a ship then coming onto the screen with laser bolts flashing by it & been shot out of it.
This is then fallowed by a try-angler point that then spreads as the star destroyer chasing the smaller rebel ship starts to cover the whole screen & I'm a Starwars fan hook, line & sinker.
Now why am I telling you all this ? well it just so happens that last night I headed down to that part of south county Dublin where men seem to have an unnatural fondness for sheep to have a game of x-wing with Nigel in the shack.
