Starwars holiday special ???? what the ....

Post by rumpole »

Im a fan of the starwars movies both original and remastered but I was shocked to find something called "The Starwars Holiday Special" while I was searching for starwars clips

http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid ... 0753051544

The script and production quality are terrible and the names of chewys family well :lol:

Do you guys have any other interesting/strange/terrible starwars clips ?



Theres also this "Christmas in the stars, the starwars christmas album" which is a collection of christmas songs sang by C3PO and R2D2 (with others)

I also remember thinking it was stupid. I love Star Wars, but some of it is plain retarded.

Is that actually Mark Hamill playing the part of luke in this production ?

It doesnt look like him to me but maybe its because he is so orange

i saw both Tim Burton's "Ed Wood" and Ed Woord's "Plan 9 from outer space". It would be funny if Tim Burton invented the whole "plan 9" script alone. "Ed Wood" is a biography about the winner of several Golden Turkey Awards (if you want to see more movies like "Plan 9" just search the Golden Turkey winning movies)
(lol the german title is "außerirdische aus dem weltraum greifen an" which means something like "extraterrestrials who live not on earth attack the earth"...xD )

Here's the full original:
http://video.google.de/videosearch?q=pl ... q=plan+9+f#

my fav scene is the one with the cockpit of the airplane that looks like a living room and the Police officer who is following the aliens to the graveyard while he always goes along the same way and we can see the same paper-trees. Sometimes i could really throw up, not because of the shocking-horror-plot or the old, drug-addicted Bela Lugosi (in his last few days walking around his own house) but the stupid dialogues 8)

And the face expressions are a masterpiece! i didn't figure out yet what the whole movie is about, perhaps only ed wood knew it... :)

edit: lol i just watched the "turkish star wars" rofl

Tim Burton left out the tragic end of Ed Wood's life: he became a director of pornos (without success) and an alcoholic.

The best you can say about the film is that they made a Halloween mask out of Tor Johnson's face which is still available :wink:
