"What a piece of junk!"
24 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have never seen a more poorly done "documentary".

Bad lighting, bad audio, bad editing, bad music, and ultimately pointless. There was nothing enlightening or amusing about even the parts that made fun of the fans. Low point, a guy in a Superman costume going on about his drug-ridden alcoholic father which has nothing to relate to the rest of the tape. Most comical moment - the credits sequence showing the silent video of celebrities accosted at a golf tournament. Silent because the director forgot to turn on the microphone. Or maybe because they were just saying "Get out of my face!"

The narrator is apparently trying to do a documentary in the style of Werner Herzog, and fails miserably. Shot (badly) on a camcorder. Features very little of what makes the biggest Star Wars fans so fanatic about it. Lots of overkill and hamfisted editing, like comparing the crowd of people attempting to buy Star Wars toys to people reaching for food in a poor country. Not just once, but about six times. Yeah, we get the message. There is one adequately shot interview (with Roger Corman -- he probably set it up himself.)

If you want a more interesting take on a similar theme, try Star Wait, which just covers the people in line for Episode II, but is much more entertaining (and well-done!). Good grief, this is one of the worst things I've ever seen.
