Cool Videos: What if David Lynch had directed Return of the Jedi?

A long, long time ago George Lucas approached David Lynch , who had been nominated for the Academy Award for Best Director for THE ELEPHANT MAN in 1980, to helm RETURN OF THE JEDI . Lynch declined with "next door to zero interest" and went on to direct DUNE . If you already knew that, turn off the caps and don't be mad, I'm just reiterating the tale as it...

Why I Love Movies - Chapter VII

Why do I love movies? Well, that is a loaded question. How much time do you have? I could go into a long-winded diatribe about the art of film-making or the magic of the movies, but all of that has been said countless times before. Not every movie is a masterpiece, but every film has touched me in one way or another. Every other week, we will look at a handful of reasons why movies...

Did George Lucas conceal Princess Leia's busty boobs in Return of the Jedi?

It's Thanksgiving here in the U.S. and most folks are gathering around with family and preparing to chow down on some traditional grub, including the Hollywood elite, which leaves the news bank rather empty. So, I'm going to use this time to discuss something that has affected most nerds my age: Princess Leia's boobs . Most notably, Princess Leia's boobs in RETURN OF...

Cool Videos: Long lost alternate Yoda death scenes from Return of the Jedi have been found

There have been a whole bunch of classic STAR WARS treats the last fews weeks. First we got the teasers and trailer for each of the original trilogy films and now we get an obscure look at alternate versions of the pivotal Yoda death scene from RETURN OF THE JEDI. Found on an EditDroid laserdisc, the scenes have made their way to Facebook and include a version of the Yoda scene I have...

Cool Videos: Mark Hamill's Joker voice replaces The Emperor's in Return of the Jedi

I don't think anyone would have ever thought that Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill , would one day be an exceptional voice actor, particularly as The Joker in almost all of his animated adventures. Watching Hamill in RETURN OF THE JEDI he seems every bit the young hero rather than a demented clown-faced criminal. And yet, Hamill has made a hell of a go of his voice talents, paving a nice...

I Want That: Yub Yub! Lego Ewok Village!

I'm about to let me geek flag fly here, so bear with me. I love Legos. I didn't love them as a kid, although they were fun, but Lego has upped their game substantially since then. With all the various properties they tackle, there's a ton of different types to choose from, making me go a litte nerdcore for the plastic blocks. One such property is STAR WARS, which the...

This George Lucas conference call from 1981 shows how far back the prequel stories were in development

It is crazy to think that this year mark's the 30th anniversary of RETURN OF THE JEDI, the lone STAR WARS original trilogy film released during my lifetime. Man, I feel old. Introducing the original trilogy to my kids was a moment I will never forget. I still love revisiting the films and learning all sort of new tidbits about them. With that in mind, this October will show the...

Brad Bird shares how he would have made Return of the Jedi awesome

RETURN OF THE JEDI is the least of the original trilogy of STAR WARS movies, but that is still heads and tails better than a lot of movies out there. I have fond memories of JEDI, including the Ewoks. But that doesn't mean I wouldn't be open to what other filmmakers would have done with it. Of course, hindsight is always 20/20, but it is fun to play revisionist. Brad Bird got to...

C'mon Hollywood: Quality over quantity is key for the future of Star Wars!

We’re all excited for more STAR WARS. The very prospect of seeing anything from a galaxy far, far away grace the screen post RETURN OF THE JEDI is a near-unimaginable prospect that put most of us in a fanboy “high.” George Lucas set aside his spite for the angry fans and, in a monumental business decision, handed over the keys to his universe to the Mouse House. The...
