Post Star Wars Uncut
Something this awesome deserves its own thread.

This is Star Wars Uncut. The gist of it is this: a few years ago, an online community of Star Wars fans decided to create and submit their own homemade remakes of Star Wars--specifically, any given 15 seconds of Star Wars. They could use whatever resources they had on hand and recreate the scene however they wanted, provided that they didn't use elements from the preexisting movie (except for the score) and that they stick to the original 15 second running time of their chosen piece.

Eventually, there were enough submissions that they could edit together an entirely fan-generated, scene-for-scene amateur remake of Star Wars. That's what this is.

I haven't watched the whole thing yet, but I'm a fair bit into the first act. This is by turns inventive, impressive, charmingly amateurish, and downright hilarious. I don't want to overstate my appreciation of this remarkable artifact of the new age of DIY moviemaking, but I believe I love every single person who was involved in this.

That's pretty awesome. I didn't watch the whole thing, but the idea of it is really cool. Props to all the work that went into it.

This is the most awesomely schizophrenic thing I've ever seen. Love femme fatale Vader and her 'stormtrooper nurses'.

This is like Be Kind Rewind come to life.

Star Wars got Sweded.

Cinema is a matter of what's in the frame and what's out-Martin Scorsese.

Seventh Seal reference killed me.

I've only skimmed it over the past couple of weeks but it is amazingly creative. Be Kind Rewind is is a great comparison and yes the Seventh Seal scene insert was great.

I also love whenever there was a Chewbacca whose costume was just a shirtless hairy guy.
