"Okay, Daisy, you're Lea. Mike, you're Luke"

"I want to be Han."

"You can't because I'm Han...Brian, you're Chewie. Twist, you're Jabba."

"Oh! Is Jabba the princess?"

"Yes."

Goddammit get over this farking movie already. I know it was huge fun when you were 5 years old, but you're 40 now. Time to move on.

I think the Robot Chicken bit where Vader, in addition to telling Luke he is his father, tells him a whole bunch of stuff from the prequels is even funnier.  It ends, if I recall correctly, with Vader saying "I built C-3PO" and Luke says "if you're not going to take this seriously, I'm out" and gets up and walks away.

Even with the Rifftrax, it's almost impossible to watch. The dance scenes and the "How to assemble your communicator" bits are especially painful.

My group of friends regularly do a bad movie night, picking the holiday special almost stopped that tradition in its tracks.

I think the only thing that needs to be gotten over in this thread, is yourself. You clearly read the headline and knew what the article was about, yet you came in to make some semi-cogent statement about how what other people like is no longer cool.

I'll assume you also don't own a television, and only engage in activities that fewer than three other people on the planet are aware of. You're so cool.

I cannot make it through the Star Wars Holiday Special without the Rifftrax, and I've sat through Manos The Hands Of Fate uncut.

List fails without How I Met Your Mother

Marshall: She's never seen Star Wars?! Ted, the only people in the universe who have never seen Star Wars are the characters in Star Wars! And that's because they've lived them, Ted! That's because they've lived the Star Wars!!

Ted: You have got to calm down.

Marshall: I told you you didn't know this girl. I mean, what if you show it to her and she doesn't like it.

Ted: Dude, it's just a movie.

(121 awesome minutes later)

Ted: Ok, if she doesn't like this I can't marry her

Marshall: No you can't

Ted: Want to watch it again?

Marshall: Yes I do..

As much as a love Star Wars, I do acknowledge the infantilization of adult popular culture. Is anyone else tired of movies from comic books? Adult women buying Hello Kitty crap? Culturally, isn't it like still eating Frosted Flakes at every meal?

That whole episode was a riot, one of my favourites.

"Go for Papa Palpatine" cracks me up every time I hear it. I do like the "No! That's impossible... Improbable..." Part too. Robot Chicken Star Wars is full of great stuff. But Spaced, and Coupling, were great, too. The Melty Man was a great episode.

I love that whole episode, but I can't stand that one bit because it so badly screws up what midichlorians are, which somehow became what everyone thought they actually were, which led to 300% more online biatching about "WAAAH! THE PREQUELS RAPED MY CHILDHOOD AND EVEN RETROACTIVELY RUINED THE OLD MOVIES! LOOK HOW THEY EVEN RUINED WHAT THE FORCE IS!"

To put it simply, the Force is not just midichlorians.

No, the Force was first described as a an energy field that is present throughout the universe. That was all that needed to be said. George decided to make the viewer peek behind the curtain and reveal a stupid mechanism for the sole purpose of creating a measuring device for 'force power'. And don't get me started on the whole Anakin -virgin birth thing.

Still think the family guy bit with the skywalker humiliating the rebel pilot is the best.  Unfortunately, the censor police seem to have that one locked down.

Doesn't it require liking that shiat in the first place?

People liked The Avengers because they don't know what else to do. Some kid on the internet yelled at them and called them stupid for not liking it and nobody wants that. Take your typical Fark thread for example. It's filed with that shiat.

Anakin is a metaphor of Christianity.
He starts off good, turns evil, and at the end, becomes good again.
Even the most evil people (like Hitler, Stalin, and Bieber) can be redeemed.
Star Wars is the Bible in movie form.

Yeah, and you have the ravening hordes of "movie logic uber alles" Plinkett wannabes who have popped up, who point and yell "plothole" at anything that isn't explicitly-exposited, on camera, in the least-complex way possible, who have crawled out of the critical primordial ooze since the dawn of the internet to thank for that.

Done in one.  Spaced was basically built on a framework of Star Wars references, and that's why I love it so. (Especially the finale episode that ends with a MASSIVE Episode 5 homage)

/Pegg and Frost also apparently met and began their bromance over one of them making the noises of the little message droid while waiting on a queue somewhere...
