Bloopers

April 7, 2011

Everyone loves a good blooper reel from time to time.  The real treat is when it’s from a movie you didn’t think still had a blooper reel, i.e., films made prior to the late 80’s.  Luckily for us, Lucas and his team kept the bloopers from the original, Star Wars trilogy.  Check it out:

Granted, you may also count the Star Wars Christmas Special:

Friday, Monday

April 4, 2011

There’s been a lot of hype recently over a very unpopular, ear-worm of a song called Friday by Rebecca Black.  Garnering primarily negative reviews and harsh responses from across the web, Rebecca Black, through her new hit single, has simultaneously become a success and an enemy of the state over night.  I figured, something this big is bound to catch the eye of at least one amazing Star Wars fan.  As it turns out, I was right, confirming that Star Wars fans really are the most creative fans in the universe.  Here are just a few of the parodies I found:

…And some other classic Hip-hop-based, Star Wars tributes and parodies.

College Humor usually has the funniest videos on the YouTube.  For this amazing Star Wars tribute, CH took the track from Jay-Z’s Empire State of Mind and spun it out in a way only Vader, himself, can deliver.  Check it out:

Granted, Star Wars and Hip hop have been romancing for a while now.  The first entry on this site was for the Star Wars Gangsta Rap.  But seriously, everyone loves Star Wars, even real, hardcore, gangsta rappers like Immortal Technique.

**A LITTLE FOREWARNING, THIS NEXT CLIP IS ABSOLUTELY EXPLICIT, VIEWER DISCRETION ADVISED**

Did you notice how well real, murder rap and Star Wars just seemed to flow together in that clip?  It’s as though the Force cannot deny the flow of a sick Hip hop beat, and Hip hop can’t deny epic coolness of Star Wars.  Even Snoop Dogg showed up to help promote the Adidas/Star Wars line.

Missed him?  How about this one?

See what I mean, now?  Star Wars and Hip hop were born to be lovers.  Even Yoda can’t deny his feelings.

Tom Tom has recently released add-ons for their mobile GPS devices that can be purchased and downloaded from the Tom Tom website, and, for all my non-force endowed out there, the add-ons are Star Wars character voices.  It’s almost enough make me sell my Garmin and switch over.  The best part, seriously though, are their adds.  Check ’em out:

 

Monday Fan Films

March 29, 2011

All this talk of fan films yesterday made me think that Monday is a perfect day for drudging the sarlacc pit out back, and for posting over seven different, classic Star Wars fan films.  Some of them are longer than the average YouTube series, while others are short and funny soda commercials.  They’re also in order of less favorite to most favorite, and consequently time of release as well (maybe).

To start off the line up is the classic, original Star Wars fan film Hardware Wars, made before computer editing existed and people still shot movies on actual film.  Sure it shows a little bit, and the humor is obviously 70’s, but cut it a little slack, there are some gems amidst the thumb twiddling.
