     Precious little is known about British actress, Daisy Ridley who has a handful of TV credits to her name in shows such as Casualty, Silent Witness and Mr. Selfridge.  All that looks set to change however following a role in The Inbetweeners 2 and a certain Sci Fi saga that a few fans will be waiting until 2015 to see.

     Here is Daisy’s slideshow *WARNING contains boobage!!*

     Recently released cast details reveal nothing about character names and roles but British actor John Boyega (22) is most likely to fill the role of hot young hero whilst hoping to escape the saga’s infamous Hamill-Christensen curse.

2013-05-23-073     A brave and determined Yorkshire schoolboy is set to cycle an astonishing 75 miles to raise funds for the Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund (registered charity no. 1103253).

     Lex Stephenson, age 13, will be taking part in the Capital To Coast Cycle Challenge on Sunday 30th June 2013, starting at The London Eye and finishing at Brighton Pier.  Lex will be riding as part of a four man team, The Crazy Wheeler’s, with his Dad, his Uncle and his sixteen year old cousin.  The Wheelers were inspired to take part in the fundraising challenge after losing a family member to Pancreatic Cancer suddenly last year.

     Lex hopes his 75 mile journey will raise awareness of the vital need to fund research into cures for all types of cancer.  In 2004, when he was just four years old, Lex was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia and underwent a gruelling three years of continual chemotherapy treatment.  Despite great discomfort and long stays in hospital Lex continued to ride his bike regularly and believes that fresh air and exercise helped him to stay fit and keep positive throughout his illness and recuperation.  Lex remains in remission and celebrated the end of his treatment with a Star Wars Fundraising Party for Children With Cancer UK (registered charity no. 298405).

     During the last forty years survival rates for Childhood Leukaemia have risen from few to 80% whilst survival rates for Pancreatic Cancer remain low at just 3%.  Lex is now focusing his continuing fundraising efforts towards helping to beat a deadly disease in need of greater awareness.

     You can read about Lex’s bike ride challenge and support him with an immediate donation via the link below.  If everyone who reads his story shares it and donates £1 Lex will be well on his way to reaching his fundraising target.

Thank you 🙂

     Here’s something to keep you busy until Episode VII: The Force Awakens!

     Star Wars: The Complete Vader is an excellent coffee table book from Random House at a bargain price!

     There are plenty of glossy images, pullouts and keepsakes with a surprisingly thorough text, so even hardcore Star Wars fans should see or read something new 🙂

     A heartily recommended time waster.

With Star Wars Episode VII on the way is it time to give Disney’s John Carter another chance?

 

Lily Wight

     Updated 26/02/2015

     Disney’s John Carter would seem to be an earnest attempt to launch an old-fashioned Sci-Fi saga in lieu of the purchase of Star Wars.    

    Those involved in the making of the film have much to be proud of.  Those involved in the marketing and promotion of the film should perhaps consider alternative careers for John Carter was lumbered with an insignificant release date, an uninspiring trailer-campaign and a dull title which foolishly dropped the “from Mars”.

     Edgar Rice Burroughs’ space opera lacks the instant familiarity of Star Trek or Wars – even Battlestar Galactica – yet it is, of course, the forerunner and inspiration behind those films, television shows and many more.

     As tastes for the coming movie season veer towards alien planets and space travel Carter may…

     If you were vaguely curious about what Hayden Christensen might have been up to since Star Wars then look no further.

     This gloriously raunchy and surprisingly starry romp is based upon The Decameron by Giovanni Boccaccio so it’s literary too!

Stars Wars – Gotye parody

Once in a while somebody comes along with a custom-crafted video that just hits the mark. This one by  teddiefilms brings together the superb combination of sound and visuals of Gotye (Somebody That I Used To Know) – and some quirky one-liners to give George Lucus and his prequels a highly qualified pasting.   I love the stand-in for the ft.Kimbra role. It ain’t a woman. The actor really plays (him) well.  :o)
