Storm Troopers boogie their way to victory

They may not always encounter success on the battle field, or in the appropriate calibration of a blaster’s targeting system, but storm troopers sure know how to move. The particular group presented below arguably should have been using their spare time to better secure air vents on the Death Star, or to practice their aim, but passion seems to have taken them in a different direction.

See as this troop explodes in a cacophony of color and motion in the Earthly reality show, Britain’s Got Talent.

John Williams brings musical magic to The Force

As far as cinematic composers go, few come close to John Williams in terms of the emotion he’s able to deliver. From his subtle, creeping background simmers through to his soaring operatic crescendos, Mr Williams has a knack for creating sounds and melodies that strike a powerful chord. His work on the original Star Wars trilogy, E.T. The Extra Terrestrial, Jaws, Indiana Jones and Superman ranks among the most memorable and moving music to ever grace the silver screen.

At 83 years of age, John Williams hasn’t lost any of his magic, as this video from 60 Minutes indicates.

Only the first couple of minutes of the video relate to Mr Williams directly, but what follows is also a fascinating insight into lessons JJ Abrams took from co-writer Lawrence Kasdan.

It’s no doubt through the input of classic talents such as Williams, Kasdan and the original cast that Star Wars – The Force Awakens felt so special.

Galactic Empire brings the power of rock to the Force

What happens when you bring Darth Vader, Boba Fett, a stormtrooper, a Red Guard and a shadow stormtrooper together in a garage? You get a sound that rocks the Force.

Listen as the members of tribute band “Galactic Empire” let loose on several of the most iconic songs from the Star Wars soundtrack. How they manage to play this well while wearing thick leather gloves, I’ll never know, but it is impressive.
