The fandom minute: TPM documentry, PT defense, AT-STs in the park, plus cake

gffa-docContinuing adventures in TPM nostalgia. Everyone’s talking about the documentary A Galaxy Far Far Away, which has a 10th anniversary edition out. (Hey, it was news to me!) The reviews are not all so good, though.

And on that note… Somewhere on the internet, someone is always defending the prequels.

Pro art: Colleen Doran shares the original sketch for her Anakin/Padme card from the Galaxy 4 set.

Gathering: A Geekdad spotted a Star Wars event in in London, Ontario a few weeks back.

There must be cake. Perhaps the most amazing AT-AT cake you’ve ever seen.

Fun fact: Darth Vader’s reveal to Luke is the most misquoted phrase in film.

What? I can’t believe GalacticBinder found even one, let alone ten Star Wars surfing crossovers.

Great Star Wars quotes and why we love them

One problem with this fandom is that we tend to quote each other out – literally. There’s only so many times a fanboy can quote a line before it starts to lose all meaning. But Movie Moron, bless their hearts, has compiled a list of the top ten Star Wars quotes – and why they’re great. I don’t always agree, but it’s nice to see a list that’s not just a list for the sake of a list. Right?

“Say what again. SAY. WHAT. AGAIN!”

slj.jpgSurprisingly, there’s no Star Wars on QuigSpot’s list of the ten most obnoxiously over-quoted movies, unless one counts the whole ‘Anything with Samuel L. Jackson’ thing.

Now, maybe I hang out with too many geeks, but there are a few movies missing from this list: What about The Princess Bride? Spaceballs? The Big Lebowski? The collected works of Kevin Smith? What overused movie quotes could you live without?

It’s not a quote exactly, but one thing I don’t miss about scavenging for the weekly video posts is getting blasted with the motherbleeping Main Theme every other video. It’s practically an instant back-buttoner for me these days.
