 MOVIE REVIEW - STAR WARS: REVELATIONS   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
A friend mentioned that he had just recently watched a Star Wars fan film called "Star Wars: Revelations." I admit I'd heard of the movie before, and even watched the trailer a while back.
The makers of Revelations apparently heard this question, misinterpreted it as a threat to their cheese-eating activies, then figuratively screamed "NEVER!!!!!!" with their use of insane red-gelled and blue-gelled lighting that leaves you wondering if these people have ever even seen a movie, let alone heard of a Star Wars.
But jesus, being fat, pale, middle-aged, middle-class, untalented, and making a Star Wars fan film is an insanely large amount of stress being piled on top of the public's desire towards political correctness.

The fans, in contrast, still give a damn: The director of Revelations, Shane Felux, is clearly more knowledgeable about the strengths and weaknesses of the material than Lucas himself.
