Trainwreck of Sci-Fi Fan Nerds
»
»
My lovely wife checked this video out of the library for me because I'm a Star Wars fan. I thought I might hate it, because I consider George Lucas to have the final word about Star Wars. I might not agree with everything he does, but I don't berate him for that. I don't like those fans who take it all too personally.

This video is mostly about those creepy fans who hate Lucas with a passion because he didn't make the movies the way they thought they should be. There are a few moderate, reasonable people in the video, too, but it's those other psychotics that make this video worth watching. It's like watching a trainwreck. It's like "Honey Boo Boo", but with science fiction nerds in place of rednecks. This video makes me feel grateful that I didn't fall into their way of thinking.

The best example of the extremist stupidity shown in this video is a song written by a fan titled, "George Lucas Raped My Childhood". (If you're feeling masochistic, watch the complete video for this song, which is included in the video's special features.)

One part not to be missed is also found in the special features. An interview with Gary Kurtz, producer of Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back. Kurtz speaks candidly about working with Lucas and gives opinions on the path Lucas took with his franchise in the later years.

Whether you agree with the psychotic fans or not, you will find something you like in this video.
