Wasn't Hardware Wars an alternate title for Army of Darkness as well? I could've sworn I heard that somewhere...
2002-03-06 09:41:40 PM  
They used to show this all the time when I was in Elementary school! I remember every friday we would all file in the auditorium for film hour and we'd hope they would be showing it again.
Ahhh.. nostalgia :)

"I can't understand what you're saying! Are you talking to me?"

Ernie Fosselius, I believe, was the name of the guy who put this together. He landed a small role in the production crew of Jedi.

Oh dear, not another Star Wars parody. Oh wait, this was the first? Well, that's ok then.

Bob dobalina- would that be "Zilch"?
2002-03-06 09:51:54 PM  
Yea, well lets hope George Lucas doesn't sue this parody.

The important question is if it is better than spaceballs....

Dark Helmet: Who made that man a gunner?

Major: I did sir. He's my cousin.

Dark Helmet: Who is he?

Colonel Sandurz: He's an asshole sir.

Dark Helmet: I know that. What's his name?

Colonel Sandurz: That is his name sir. Asshole major Asshole.
Dark Helmet: And his cousin?

Colonel Sandurz: He's an asshole too sir. Gunner mate, first class Philip Asshole.

Dark Helmet: How many assholes do we have on this ship?
Everybody: YO!

Dark Helmet: I knew it. I'm surrounded by assholes.Keep firing assholes.

bwwaaahahahahaha only the airplane movies can do better than that......

oh & Peter North you have misspelled my name, my man

I guess hardware wars was a big kid pleaser becuase they use to show it at my school too.

I still remember when they started sex ed and they showed a video about some girl getting her period. She was at the dinner table and starts yelling "I GOT IT, I GOT IT" as she runs to the bathroom and her little brother says to their father "what did she get dad?" to which he responds in a 50's television announcer voice "She got her period son". Absolutely the funniest shiat I've ever seen. Anyone else remember this movie from school?
2002-03-06 09:59:26 PM  
I LOVE this film... especially closet cases of the nerd kind and porklips now...

"I was getting close now. so close... you could feel the closeness."

"hmmm, this means something"

B0rg9 - I think it was Chinchilla the wookie monster...

my fav part was when they were flying, and Chinchilla started munching on Princess Androids hair buns... awesome.

Augie Ben Doggie,

damm, I should have known. Phonetics fails me again.

I wasn't lucky enough to go to a school that played Hardware Wars. Thank God for HBO!
2002-03-06 10:09:41 PM  
I still have my copy on VHS..... with the Godzilla meets bambi short film... it is so worn...
2002-03-06 10:10:49 PM  
Yes, but is it the Hardware Wars Special Edition?

(there really is one)
2002-03-06 10:15:32 PM  
i bet they stil charge 20 bucks cause its on DVD.. and they cost less to manufacture.. yet still cost more than VHS because of the outrageous cost of authoring tools and encoding liscenses. Doom9 for all you DVD 'backup' needs! DOWN WITH MPAA!! ARRGGUE! *choke* *spittle*
2002-03-06 10:15:33 PM  
They re-released the "Special Edition" with more "footage". I gots it too. Love it.
2002-03-06 10:17:44 PM  
I still like the Thumb Wars parody a lot better.
2002-03-06 10:20:25 PM  
NO not the SE.. that wasn't done by the orig guy... this is the classic teh orig.. the better
2002-03-06 10:21:03 PM  
Amazon has it for 13bucks......
2002-03-06 10:21:49 PM  
.... plus shipping and handleing?
2002-03-06 10:21:58 PM  
Anyone ever see the avi called "Tripping"?
2002-03-06 10:24:00 PM  
Tripping the Rift. Great movie. There's a sequel too. trippingtherift.com Woo. I are smart.
2002-03-06 10:24:59 PM  
"No, just a headache..."

Free beer to whoever can repeat the entire skit first.
2002-03-06 10:27:57 PM  
I'm still waiting for the special edition DVD of 'Bambi Meets Godzilla,' where Bambi shoots first. ;)
2002-03-06 10:29:19 PM  
Thunb Wars is definitely the best spoof of them all.
2002-03-06 10:29:30 PM  
Thumb Wars that is...
2002-03-06 10:29:57 PM  
if anyone wants to just D/L it instead of buying.. I will supply it... just email me for the link. it is over 50MB so have a fast connection, ok?
2002-03-06 10:32:19 PM

"What? I can't understand what you're saying. Are you talking to me?"



2002-03-06 10:35:09 PM  
uhh, would it be more than ignorant to say something stupid like "kazaa" or "morpheus"?

2002-03-06 10:45:03 PM  
when I find it again.. I will share it on WinMX...

screw the entire Kazaa network... damn spyware infested crap
2002-03-06 11:04:07 PM  
Hardware Wars is the BEST spoof of Star Wars IMO.
2002-03-06 11:12:01 PM  
Best. Spoof. Ever. TADA. I did it first! The token "comic guy" reference!

/me bows.
2002-03-06 11:12:13 PM  
I haven't seen Hardware Wars :( But from the many, many spoofs of Star Wars I've seen, I must concur with a few others here - Thumb Wars reigns king.
2002-03-06 11:20:05 PM  
Long overdue. They actually played this thing before showing the bonafide film back in the day. I am there. Bring it!
2002-03-06 11:35:13 PM  
"you'll laugh you'll cry you'll kiss three bucks goodbye...see hardware wars"
2002-03-07 12:14:02 AM  
We recomended it to friend of ours as a rent, but they bought it thinking it was full length like Spaceballs, they were disappointed, but hey i got a free copy.

"Don't blow up planet basketball, it's a peaceful planet."

"Relax, kid. It's only a movie."

Hardware Wars: The Special Edition
2002-03-07 04:33:27 AM  
Damn this thing is a classic but its only a short. I gotta buy a DVD? Doesn't anyone have a link to the mpeg or something?
2002-03-07 07:57:39 AM  
It's bad in a very BAD way. Don't buy it.
2002-03-07 07:58:24 AM  
Cool, Hardware Wars is frickin' hilarious!
2002-03-07 09:39:11 AM  
define "classic"
2002-03-07 09:39:31 AM  
I mean, come on, it is not Spaceballs
2002-03-07 10:17:13 AM  
Hardware Wars is the biggest piece of crap I have ever seen. I saw reviews for it on Amazon and spent eight bucks for it that I'll never get back. When I took it out of my VCR I didn't even rewind it because I knew I'd never watch it again. Don't waste your money on this crap.
