Happy 35th Anniversary, Star Wars!

  1. On March 25, 1977, director George Lucas changed pop culture forever. Star Wars was the ultimate hero's journey and a fantasy sci-fi film like richer and more tangible than any seen before. It immediately hooked those who saw it, its diverse, colorful world primed for more adventures — which would eventually come, in the form of sequels, TV shows, comic books, novels and even Christmas Specials.Since its release 35 years ago, fans of Lucas' saga have been conflicted. They love Star Wars, but they've also seen their cherished franchise torn apart and reassembled time and time again. Lucas has become notorious for his insistence in changing Star Wars with each subsequent release, evolving the effects, tinkering with details and adding new footage to better suit his vision. That hasn't gone over so well with the devotees — the war crime film The People vs. George Lucas is a clear indication — and three and a half decades later, there are more rants, tirades and scorned love letters associated with the Star Wars films than there are movies. Whatever you think about Lucas' creative decisions (is it his right to do what he wants as the author of the movies? That is my stance!), there's no question that the 35 years between the first release of Star Wars (oh wait, I'm sorry, A New Hope) and its modern incarnation has been a bumpy one.

    Here is a tribute to all of the Nerd Rage that loving Star Wars has caused.
    Hope you Enjoy!

  2. Nothing like watching space fights, aliens, romance and good ole butt kicking. Shame I don't have the DVDs...

    Hay guise,
    is Star Wars when constellations throw harpoons at planets, and sell them to other galaxies?
  4. GASP!

    Yes, it could be.

    Poor planets.

  8. D: I love Jar Jar. Why do people laugh at me/yell at me when I admit that?
  9. Because they don't know what they're missing.
