Desert Island Debbie Gibson: No Thanks

Desert Island Debbie Gibson: No Thanks

We have the resources to last a lifetime here, but I’m not sure I can endure another five minutes with her.  When she isn’t talking about Debbie Gibson, she makes on-the-nose statements about our predicament like she’s providing exposition in a SyFy Channel Original Movie.

An Emperor's Reprimand

Thorn number one, why do I have TheEmperor03 email? Who else decided they deserve the most powerful Sith Overlord’s email address?  I thought we programmed these clones without a sense of humor or desire for power.  There must be a glitch.  Speaking of glitches, have you addressed the pitiful marksmanship of the troopers with the blaster pistol trainer?   Maybe Grand Moff Tarkin took TheEmperor@Dstar.emp.  Let him know, if my prophecy is correct, I will replace him with an awkward droid projection with eyes dead as the Jedi.

Diary of an Imperial Guardsman

Diary of an Imperial Guardsman

I can remember the look on my son's face when I told him I got the promotion from Storm Trooper to Imperial Guard. My wife was proud, but more relieved. The Storm Trooper death-on-the-job rate has shot up since the rebellion found a new hope and our pensions had recently been cut to build the Death Star.

Programming a festival, you get to see so many amazing movies, and you want to tell everyone about it.  It seems like lots of people are talking about the features, so we wanted to make you didn’t miss a few of our favorite shorts playing the fest!

The Curse of the Found Footage Gimmick

The Curse of the Found Footage Gimmick

"The problem with the success of The Blair Witch Project is that it was a gimmick. It’s not about telling a story, it’s about challenging the audience to continue to watch.  It did a fantastic job creating and holding tension, but does anyone remember any of the characters names?"
