Star Wars fever

Category : movies

Alvin's watched it in Beijing, his first time in a movie theatre there (obviously otherwise swarming in DVDs). Beware of spoilers in his post, though. And lots of links to Star Wars fan films.

One in particular, shines; IMPS - The Relentless. Unfortunately, I only received 86+MB of the 200MB+ download last night before they pulled the file, and am now trying their BitTorent link. What I have looks impressive, though its only part of Chapter 1.

Jimmy takes a humorous look at Natalie Portman's hairdo's, laments over her insiginificance in this movie and passes the baton to Yann can actually write. Amongst other things, she warns us about the smell in Beach Road cinemas, *yech!*

Mr Miyagi may well have started the ball rolling for old fogies to recall the time before most of us had heard of the word "prequel."

Shop Wars - actually about organic farming! (Link updated; this is a flash site. The original mov file seems to have been removed).

Revenge of the Brick.

--- Sat, 21st May 2004 ---

I get my Star Wars fix tomorrow at 2pm-ish. Trouble is, I cannot recall anything about the insipid Ep II. We actually tried, a couple of Brits and I over curry, but failed miserably. I remember someone taking an MRT someplace. At any rate, it'll be a relief not to have to look into the soupy eyes of some Hobbit.

Update: with my expectations of a plot moderatd by Ep 2, an enough warnings of limited acting, I enjoyed the film. The tapestry is excellent, and I guess its strength is in digital splendour. Anyway, none of us who watched the first trilogy can miss this.

It ends with an indulgence of hat tips to Ep 4, the original Star Wars movie, that provide a sense of closure as well as continuity for the fans.
