Popular fantasy franchise masquerading as science fiction. Features archaic and unrealistic political structures (Monarchies, empires) for galaxy-spanning civilisations. Technology includes armoured vehicles that would get seriously pwned by 21st century human technology, spacecraft with hideously under-powered and and low-range weapons (Even WWII battleships fought at greater ranges!) Small arms no self-repecting soldier would be found dead with (Low powered blasters that fire 'laser' bolts that fly as fast as arrows, no decent kinetic weapons like assault rifles, railguns and gauss guns)
Completely unrealistic 'force' powers (Hence fantasy not sci-fi) Superweapons that have to be the size of small moons in order to destroy planets (Ever heard of anti-matter?) And basically an overall grip of the realities of science, sociology and biology (Humanoid aliens are present - Star Trek is the worse offender for this though) that's as shaky as his Holiness the Pope. And he's pretty shaky.
The Star Wars films are fun to watch, but don't fool yourself into thinking it's sci-fi.

Science fiction you can watch without neccessarily being a nerd.
I watched Star Wars last night and it was awesome as always. Then I went to bed and dreamt of something other than Star Wars. The next morning I went to work and didn't think about Star Wars all day. That night I went to a party and didn't talk about Star Wars once.

1970's ground breaking space epic later reduced to "Meesaa gonna die! Meesaa gonna die."
Star Wars would be great if it weren't for Jar Jar.

The best piece of fiction ever created by the human mind. It features the Galactic Empire, the ultimate utopian government. Rule through fear of force, countless uniform troops and star fighters, the most powerful star fleet in the history of the universe, the most organized and correct social structure, cruel and arrogant officers, absolute rule of the Emperor, and finally... the darkest, most militaristic anthem ever.... the Imperial March.
Star Wars represents the ultimate story, evil dictator and his innumerable armies vs. rag-tag rebellion. The ultimate tale of good(Jedi/Luke Skywalker) vs. pure evil(Palpatine).
