This was the look on my face when I first saw Star Wars, as well. Hello, bro cat.

Parents Breaking Their Kids Into Star Wars

02/21/2011

You think it’s easy getting your child into Star Wars, but it isn’t. There are outside forces at work, namely other kids who aren’t as prepared as they should be, telling your child that Star Wars is this or it’s that, and just a bunch of starships flying around. This is an informative video on how to talk to your kids about Star Wars, and usher them into the saga correctly. Iz serious shiz.

Here’s to the children of the future knowing that Han shot first, as it should be. Even Lucas admits it.


Star Wars Begins

Sir Alec Guinness deemed George Lucas’ dialogue “rather creaky, but I kept turning the pages…” Case in point: in the pivotal scene where he and Luke are in Obi-Wan’s cave, the original line is: “You must do what you feel.”

Guinness, in the fashion of the best actors, simply and wonderfully added …”what is right, of course.” And it was instantly improved. “You must do what you feel is right, of course.”

This and many more insider secrets of the making of Star Wars is available thanks to a superfan named Jambe Davdar. (Han Solo smoking a cigarette in the cockpit of the Millenium Falcon is not to be missed.)  Cinematical has all 14 parts of this not-for-profit documentary at their site. There are many things the Jawa-type scavengers among us have seen before, but there’s also a lot of new stuff. Highly recommended for fans.

It goes without saying (and the ensuing guilt trip) that many Bothans died to bring us this information.

My Name is… Darth Vader

Weird Al’s song is best treated by YouTube user SquareTomatoes008. The text tomfoolery is distracting, but the edits are all good. Blasters, lightsabers, and appropriate dialogue matchings abound. Don’t miss the end.


Best Summer Movie Showdown

07/14/2010

Cinematical has been having a Best Summer Movie of All Time poll going since before summer even started, and now it’s down to two. As they say, either way George Lucas and Harrison Ford win. But which is the the best summer movie of all time, Star Wars (1977), or Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)?

I have interesting first-view stories about both of them, so this is hard for me to decide. If it was between Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back, I’d have no problem voting. That would be because my Empire story trumps both.

Which other movie would you consider the best summer movie of all time?

Awesome design from fyeahgeekgirls.

Thanks Minnesotastan.


Raiders Meets Star Wars

This is something I totally missed in 2006. What a delightful edit!

I found this looking for an image of the scene where Threepio is adding dead Jawas to the burning pile in the original Star Wars. I’d never really noticed it before tonight, but as I watch it on Spike TV, Artoo appears to be really close to the fire, relishing it. Can’t really blame him after what they put him through, but it’s eerie to me now, watching him watch his tormentors burn while remaining silent and contemplative… He’s still my favorite character.
