      Star Wars: Episode 2 is called 'Attack Of The Clones' not 'The Clone Wars' Now I'm no Star Wars aficionado but come on Total Film that's pretty basic stuff! I will now also go and find myself a life.

      And it basically says it all about George Lucas's casting process for the Prequel Trilogy. A character who becomes the greatest villain in movie history is cast because he "looked good" next to Natalie Portman. Wow!

      The amount of people stating they 'have no life' merely for knowing a basic Star Wars fact... What a sad prejudice this is. There are loads of film stars and rock stars who are big enough fans of Star Wars, Star Trek, Dr Who etc, who you'd never accuse of not having a life. A shame this form of prejudice is so rife in our society. For example, Mick Fleetwood appeared in Star Trek TNG, Iggy Pop was in DS9, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen all reference the Star Wars series in their films, and Iron Maiden often sneak a TARDIS into their album covers. A shame the prejudice of anyone with the slightest bit of sci-fi knowledge is instantly branded a geek and forced to sit at the back of the bus, and use the side entrance, and is ignored and shunned by the general populace as to be seen speaking to one is a social suicide. And then there's linchings... (ok, so I may be taking this joke a bit far...)

      Number 24 on the list is quite interesting. I didn't know that Darth Vader was Dutch for 'father'. However did you know that Jar Jar Binks means 'Franchise killer' in English?

      I can't believe Empire has the lowest body count, especially seeing as how it's generally considered to be the darkest (or really, second darkest) of the series!

      Slide 20: "THD 1138" should say THX 1138. Sloppy blogging guys.

      Peter Mayhew was a hospital porter in Mayday Hospital in Croydon. I know because my mum worked with him as nursing Sister in casualty (A&E). When he came back from signing up for eps 5 and 6 as they became, he said 'I feel like a Clint Eastwood movie - A Fistful of Dollars!" True story.

      WRT to 23, I think it is worth pointing out that even those three lines were not delivered by Ray Park but Peter Serafinowicz. I have a life thanks.
