Quotes

Captain Jyanix Bach: I joined the Empire about six years ago. I remember as a kid, you know, watching the holographic images and being excited about the new direction that the galaxy was taking. So, when I was old enough, I went down to the local recruitment center, you know, and signed up. And I've been here at Tattooine ever since.

Great Spoof!
9 December 1999 | by Frank-N-SteinSee all my reviews

This short spoof is so well done, just check out the special effects and the costumes. The plot is also excellent. For those who haven't seen it: It tells you what "really" happened to Uncle Owen and Luke's Aunt and what happened to the Jawas when the Imperial Troops showed up, looking for the stolen droids... This is a must see. Don't pay too much for the tape, though!
