The Boba Fett who sits on my office shelves is a terrible dancer.

This is long, but stay with it.  About two thirds of the way through it switches from funny to all kinds of awesome.

Rifftrax – Star Wars Holiday Special

with 2 comments

I watched the RiffTrax tonight for the Star Wars Holiday Special and HOLY SHIT I cannot believe the Holiday Special ever aired on tv.  It is so bad that it borders on Dali-esque surrealism, and this is the best way I can summarize it:  some Wookies stand around and periodically interrupted by musical numbers from the likes of Jefferson Starship and Bea Arthur.  It must be seen to be believed.

The Holiday Special isn’t commercially available, but I was able to download a copy off Google Video and sync the RiffTrax mp3 with it in iMovie.  Since it was aired on broadcast television, you get the bonus of some late 70’s commercials.

Dam Busters

leave a comment »

Dam Busters is a 1954 film about the British attack on the Ruhr dams of Germany. It was particularly influential on Star Wars, as Wikipedia notes:

The attack on the “Death Star” in the climax of the film Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope is based on the climactic sequence of The Dam Busters. In the later film rebel pilots have to fly through a trench while evading enemy fire and use a single special weapon at a precise distance from the target in order to destroy the entire base with a single explosion; if one run fails another run must be made by a different pilot. Some scenes from the Star Wars climax are very similar to those in The Dam Busters and some of the dialogue is nearly identical in the two films. These scenes are also heavily influenced by the action scenes from the war film 633 Squadron, which depicts a fictional air raid. Star Wars also ends with an Elgarian-style march, like The Dam Busters.

Check out this mashup of Dam Busters with the audio from the Death Star run:
