I find that answer vague and unconvincing. Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves?
Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here? And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

Behold, puny earthlings… the film ‘Gremloids(aka Hyperspace or Gremlords)

 

The Original Star Wars Parody - Hyperspace (1984) aka Gremloids; VideoCrap Movie Review

Trailer, in German - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ArbABgA40Pc
 

About the film…

Director and writer Todd Durham, in his first feature length film, gives us a bizarrely yet joyful mega-budget adventure straight out of the growing Star Wars enthused parody collection. Actors Chris Elliott and Paula Poundstone are joined by Lord Buckethead himself to star in this manly Earth-based 1984 sci-fi romp.

Vader & Jawas are teamed up to take over the universe - and film’s tagline of ‘The Fate of Mankind Hangs in the Balance’… gives it a far more grandiose plan than the story (and budget) delivers.

In the US it was known as ‘Hyperspace’, in the UK ‘Gremloids’, and apparently in Germany it was known as ‘Gremlords’.
 

Film plot / synopsis (from wikipedia):-

'Princess Serina has stolen vital radio transmissions from an evil Galactic Alliance. The Darth Vader-like villain, Lord Buckethead, pursues Serina, but, due to an error in navigation, instead lands on Earth.

Lord Buckethead then leads his Jawa-like minions into the nearby suburban town while none the wiser of his blunder. He immediately mistakes town folk such as Chester, the local baker, for a galactic hero called Captain Starfighter; and again later Karen, an employee at a local transmission repair shop, for Princess Serina, whom he promptly abducts for interrogation.’

The very nice french youtube channel VERSUS released a “Mini-VERSUS”: Ben Hur vs Phantom Menace

“I have to say that I felt George’s group of six films had more innovative visual imagination, and this film was more of a retrenchment to things you had seen before and characters you had seen before, and it took a few baby steps forward with new characters.” - James Cameron about Episode VII.

If anyone knows of one, or can point us in the right direction, it’d be much appreciated…

Han: Hey Lando! You kept your promise, right? Not a scratch?
Lando: Well, what’s left of her isn’t scratched. All the scratched parts got knocked off along the way.
Han (exasperated): Knocked off?!

I wish they would just make a series based on that anime style TIE Fighter short.

This.

Eat the multi-billion dollar corporate slop and pretend it’s social justice, you weirdos.

Hi all,

It’s been a while. Thought you might like to know I’ve added another video to my growing library.

My latest short documentary is “Robert Watts - A Life in Film”. In July 2018, I was lucky enough to spend just over an hour chatting to Robert about some of his career.

This is the resulting video - https://vimeo.com/290893295

more quality works from Jambe can be found on his superb video channel - https://vimeo.com/filmumentaries & https://twitter.com/jamieswb 😃

Some kind soul has uploaded BBC’s Arena Cinema program on Star Wars - from 1979 - up on youtube:-

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ALjEf-tQNWc

'This episode of ‘Arena Cinema’ was broadcast on BBC2 on 29th January 1979 to co-incide with the British release of ‘Star Wars’. What we have here is an interviews and analysis. Behind-the-scenes clips are included, some of which I haven’t seem elsewhere.

The format of this series was that each episode had a lengthy feature item with unrelated film news and reviews at the end.

Short clips of this programme have been seen elsewhere over the years. To my knowledge it has not been repeated since.

I’ve had to make edits to comply with YouTube’s filter. The missing footage is clips from the film.’
