Storyline

Anyone who's seen Star Wars Episode IV, A New Hope, will likely tell you that Grand Moff Tarkin destroyed the planet Alderaan to scare the bajebus out of Princess Leia thereby forcing her to tell him where the rebel base was. Well, I don't think that was the real reason. I think it was revenge. This film explains the real reason Alderaan was destroyed. Written by Ken Lawton

I'm afraid I really didn't find this funny
27 March 2008 | by TBJCSKCNRRQTreviewsSee all my reviews

I openly and upfront admit that my reaction to this could have something to do with my not in the least bit secret hatred of something which this more or less centers around... but I'm not sure I'd find the joke all that funny, anyway. Lawton admits on his site that this is "silly", but even with that in mind, I just did not enjoy my viewing of this. It takes a well-known scene from the original Star Wars(please do not read the plot, unless you don't care about spoilers, if you haven't already watched it), and offers an alternate explanation of a certain character's action in said scene. The real problem is, it's basically just one joke, that the a quarter of a minute under four minute short is based on... and, sorry Ken, it ain't that funny(were it shorter, it still wouldn't be). I wouldn't want people to think that I have some grudge against the man, so I will point out that I did enjoy two of his other works, Aieko and Saberfight 2004, and I find both of those to be good ideas, executed well, and immensely entertaining, each in their own way. The animation isn't bad, nor is sound. I recommend this to those who watch all Star Wars parodies, and... not really anyone else. Better luck next time, Ken. 3/10
