I find the quality of some fan films, particularly the visual effects very surprising. I have no idea what budget these things have, but their ability to often pull off starships and super powers is amazing.
After the break, a recent impressive Star Wars fan film. It’s a bit light on effects, but it looks great and continues the story on Hoth following the attack in Empire Strikes Back.
Because a day is not complete without at least one Star Wars post. (Editor’s note: Uh, Jimmy, Tom already posted about Star Wars with the Box Office Report…which you would know if you had written the Box Office Report like you had been assigned. You are already on thin ice in 2016 Mr. Impossible.)
Well, geez. If you’re still around, after the cut, check out these trailers for Episodes V and VI, with a modern flair to them.
Unless you’ve been living in a hole for the past year or so, you know there’s a new Star Wars coming out next week.
To do something with that, I’m doing a rewatch and have invited the other Geeks to share their two cents on the previous six movies. We’ll have one a day starting tomorrow with The Phantom Menace (skipping the weekend) and end with Return of the Jedi next Thursday.
So, hey, see what we have to say about the most important movie series in the universe. That statement may be a bit of a hyperbole. Schedule after the cut.
Marvel mastermind Kevin Feige has been open about his love of Star Wars and revealed years ago his secret Easter Egg nod to Empire Strikes Back in Phase 2 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Just like Luke Skywalker famously lost hold of his father’s lightsaber when his dad cut off his hand, every movie in the second phase of the MCU has had someone losing their hand or arm. Now that Phase 2 is complete with the release of Ant-Man, we can prevent the final list of every Empire-based Marvel severed appendage! The list even includes all the Marvel TV properties as well!
Jump after the break to see them all, but since the last one is from the recently released Ant-Man then BE WARNED THE REST OF THIS POST CONTAINS ANT-MAN SPOILERS!
Nothing is better than watching Star Wars on a Friday afternoon….except maybe all the Star Wars films…at once! Yes that’s right people – all 2+ hours of the film were captured and merged together in this larger than life, out of this galaxy experience that you don’t want to miss. Epic doesn’t even come close to describing this – but don’t take my word for it, see for yourself:
