Obi-Wan Kenobi in the News

And a follow up “Revenge of the 5th” post, though like most good Star Wars fans, I don’t recognise the prequels. Sean O’Neal writes the news reports for the AVClub, and he does it very, very well.  I find myself reading items for topics that have no interest to me, just to see what kind […]

The Tauntaun Song

May the fourth, etc. Last month I participated in A Musical Emergency, which is a loose collective of theater and music folks in SF that turns popular stories or movies into full length musicals. They divide the story up into bite sized chunks and everyone’s responsible for telling their part of the story however they […]

Bespin, Cushion City

Empire Strikes Back is, arguably, my favourite movie ever, so it’s wild seeing these behind the scenes stills which remind me even more than Mark Hammill’s acting (which in fairness was pretty great in Empire) that it was all just a lot of smoke and mirrors.

This guy’s review of Attack of the Clones (which, after the disappointment of Phantom Menace and the horror show AotC trailer, I refused to watch) takes almost as long as the movie itself.

Kenneth Colley – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenneth_Colley Here’s a fun fact for Star Wars and Monty Python fans (read: my fellow nerds) – it seems Admiral Piett played Jesus in Life of Brian! I have nothing to add to this. For us nerds, that’s all we need.

Snatch Wars (Snatch Vs Star Wars)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kDKiQfBs9lo Snatch/Star Wars mash-up that makes Vader into a foul-mouthed Cockney thug. I particularly like his using “Errol” as a term of endearment for any Imperial trooper. Thanks, Sam, for the link.

CAMBLR: Marketing Genius

http://camerondaigle.tumblr.com/post/86010120/marketing-genius A list of Star Wars terms that rarely – or never – get named in the dialogue. The fact that I (and probably a fair number of you, too) can recognise them all shows the power of Lucas’ toy marketing, ’cause the boxes were all labelled!
