The Star Wars Effect

The July 2007 issue of DVD Review Magazine comes with a 95 page free book all about the influence that Star Wars had over the last thirty years of screen sci-fi– and I wrote about half of it (the other half was done by regular SFX contributor Jayne Nelson).

The films and shows I covered are:

The Black Hole,
Saturn 3
Flash Gordon
The Hitch-Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
E.T.- The Extra Terrestrial
2010
The Last Starfighter
Red Dwarf
Babylon 5
Independence Day
Starship Troopers
The Fifth Element
The Matrix
Titan A.E.

A motley crew, but it turned out fairly fun in the end. It’s an entertaining read, and should be in the shops within the next week.
