I was raised to do one thing… and that’s serve up Star Wars Bits. After the jump:

  • David Prowse has zero interest in Star Wars: The Force Awakens
  • What does “I will finish what you started” really mean?
  • The Force Awakens trailer gets meme-d, of course
  • Ooh and ahh over a stunning Star Wars Newsweek cover
  • Was the destruction of Alderaan justified?
  • A Star Wars-themed bar has opened up in Ottawa
  • Is this the working title of Star Wars Episode VIII?
  • Get way too invested in the state of Mark Hamill‘s facial hair
  • Peek at the Star Wars room on the Disney Dream cruise ship
  • Feast your eyes on a bunch of Vader Down variant covers

jaws live

This past July, the Austin, Texas-based Old Murder House Theatre transported Steven Spielberg‘s Jaws to the stage. Their production, a beat-for-beat recreation of the original film with only a few deliberate changes, was a thing of chaotic beauty. On sets made of cardboard, held together with duct tape and a prayer, the cast and crew created a show that was one part parody, one part homage, and one part, uh, something else altogether.

Now, footage from this bizarre and brilliant show has arrived online, giving those who weren’t in attendance a chance to catch the highlights. A YouTube video can’t quite capture the experience of seeing this thing live, but it’s better than not seeing any of it at all.

You can watch the Jaws: Live! footage below, but only if you like good things.

Toy Story 3

From cosplay to homemade replicas, fans have come up with some pretty creative ways to recreate costumes and props from some of their favorite movies. But one group of young fans is taking things to a new level with their meticulous real life recreation of Andy’s room from Toy Story 3. Yes, they’ve recreated his entire bedroom.

And their recreation of Andy’s room will really play tricks on your mind. Read More »

Star Wars

It’s been just one week since the final trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens debuted online, and I’ve lost count of how many times that I’ve watched it. I’ve even taken the time to repeatedly listen to the version that isolates just the music from the trailer, which isn’t actually new music from John Williams, but repurposed versions of his original themes.

But if you’re somehow getting bored with The Force Awakens trailer, one fan has spiced things up by taking footage from the original Star Wars trilogy and cutting it to the music from The Force Awakens trailer. The result is a Star Wars trilogy trailer that has me excited to marathon of all of them again in December. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Angels in the Outfield

Clearly, there’s an angel with me right now. How else to explain that mere minutes after I professed my love for Angels in the Outfield right here on /Film, I came across a 30 for 30 episode about same?

Okay, so by “episode” I mean “College Humor parody.” But that doesn’t make 30 for 30: Angels in the Outfield any less magical. Watch the 30 for 30 Angels in the Outfield video after the jump.   Read More »

Jar Jar Binks The Force Awakens trailer

It’s almost unanimous among fans that the worst thing the Star Wars prequels have contributed to the canon of the galaxy far, far away is the character of Jar Jar Binks. The Gungan companion is a dumb cartoon, and it seems George Lucas really wanted to fuel the fire by having him be the senator who makes the motion to give emergency powers to Chancellor Palpatine, thus bringing about the creation of the clone army that helped spawn the Galactic Empire.

And now he’s back to ruin the final Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer with a fanmade cut that inserts him all over the place, sometimes in a very impressive way. Watch the Jar Jar Binks The Force Awakens trailer below! Read More »
