Video Monday

Trailer for 5-25-77. That’s an upcoming movie I haven’t heard of for a long time…

The Phantom Menace, Revenge of the Sith, A New Hope, and Return of the Jedi in 60 seconds, with Attack of the Clones and Empire Strikes Back in 10.

British Phantom Menace spoof. I believe this is from French and Saunders – that’s Jennifer Saunders as Qui-Gon, anyway. Some of the funny must have gotten lost in the trip over the Atlantic, but screenshots of the Queen Amidala scene have been amusing me for years so I had to link it. Sorry. This action figure parody of game show The Crystal Maze may amuse more.

Ewoks and Stormtroopers, just because:
Injured stormtrooper.
