The release of the original Star Wars trilogy on DVD firmly plants my buttocks on the horns of a dilemma–Yes, I am a huge dork and I must … have … them … must … own … can’t resist, and at the same time the sheer awfulness of episodes one and two (and, with 99.99% certainty, episode three–Vader’s Menacing Dildo or whatever it’s going to be called–whenever it comes out) have utterly soured me on the whole franchise.
Fortunately, the good folks at Dork Tower are sharing the pain, and have distilled the essence of the moral quagmire posed by Lucas’s never-ending spoon feeding of his franchise in this utterly brilliant cartoon. It’s funny because it’s true.
