    Joginder ji,

    Guru Fateh.

    I have known you since our time together @ Learning Zone. :)

    I have only seen the first one, the original. I am not into science fiction although I watched the filming of Star Trek in London once and used to watch the show.

    If I am not mistaken, I have read in an "interview" somewhere by George Lucas that he had based the main theme on Sikhi. I am not too sure about "the interview's" veracity though.

    I saw the new film. I didn't like it. It was well put together. The acting was superb, especially from the newcomers. However, it didn't evoke any emotion. It was just too bland in my opinion. A cookie-cutter movie designed to appeal to the widest spectrum of audience. I don't hate them for that. It is, after all, how they make money. But it was just too Disney. I felt like I was watching a teenage coming-of-age drama. The juxtaposition of the new school vs the old school was also corny and overplayed, in my opinion.

    I do find parallels between Star Wars and Sikh philosophy. The Jedi try to align themselves with the Hukam, while the Sith are motivated by the 5 thieves (lust, anger, greed, attachment, pride).

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
