The original trilogy makes a nice showing, with Empire Strikes Back at #3, A New Hope at #22 and Return of the Jedi at #91. (Plus, Raiders of the Lost Ark is #2.) The prequel trilogy clocks in with The Phantom Menace at #449 and Revenge of the Sith at #330.
As for other movies of interest: Serenity (#383,) Clerks (#361,) Shaun of the Dead (#231,) The Princess Bride (#122,) Batman Begins (#81,) Evil Dead (#49,) The Matrix (#39,) Terminator 2 (#35,) Aliens (#30,) Blade Runner (#20,) 2001 (#16,) and The Dark Knight (#15.) I think all of LOTR was in the top 100 too, but I lost track because 500 MOVIES IS RIDICULOUS.
Lists: io9 thoughtfully includes Revenge of the Sith in their list of the best skin-melting scenes from sci-fi. Melting, frying… They’re almost the same thing! (And apparently Raiders of the Lost Ark doesn’t count.)
Hipsters! Hold onto your Pabst, Star Wars is live (and authorized!) in San Francisco this weekend.
The new (to me) Geek Crafts blog has a list of thirteen geeky baked goods for your perusal. Some we’ve seen before, but many we haven’t, including the great Revenge of the Sith cake above. (Check the blog’s comments for more, too!)
This has clearly been around for a while, and we probably already linked it back in 2005, but what the hell: Vanity Fair’s Star Wars photo album, containing almost all the fantastic Annie Leibovitz prequel set photos.
