Traditionally, a Jedi makes his own lightsaber. But sometimes, they need a special touch. Or they’re a Sith, and they don’t have the patience to build a complicated laser handle with proper safety features.
There isn’t a lot of writing in the Star Wars universe. Stories seem to mostly be passed along via oral culture—one person telling a story to another, with all the foibles and forgetfulness personal retellings entail. This Star Wars fan film captures all the fun, and all the forgetfulness, of a good retelling.
There’s a certain glory to not having a budget. You have to get creative. Or very, very silly.
The 3D Print Guy has a brilliant YouTube gimmick: he 3D prints plastic figures, and then he animates them. This time, he sculpts and animates the sneakiest, most mischievous Rick of all: Tiny Rick.
She’s looking for Tom Riddle. She thinks she can save him.
Martial arts legend Bruce Lee, sadly, didn’t live long enough to turn in even half of the brilliant performances he was capable of, a tragic fact which leaves a lot to the imagination of his fans. Like, what would Bruce Lee have looked like as part of the modern rise of science fiction cinema?
One weird part about the aging of the Star Wars franchise is the datedness of the franchise’s action scenes. Don’t get me wrong, the old movies still have good fights, but they feel of a decidedly different tenor than the new ones. Fight choreography, like all manners of special effects work, has changed significantly…
That is, if your version of “holiday spirit” includes watching all the Christmas movies with horror themes. (It does in our house!)
The mystery at the heart of Netflix’s Stranger Things has only affected the small town of Hawkins, Indiana... as far as we know. But what if the Upside Down isn’t just a local problem? What if the vines, tunnels, and monsters were more widespread—perhaps even worldwide? An impressive fan film brings the strangeness of …
J.K. Rowling may be busy working on the second film in her Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them trilogy, but one fan film is getting reading to tell us a much cooler story: How He Who Shall Not Be Named became, well, He Who Shall Not Be Named.
The war between the Empire and the rebellion may have been at the forefront of Star Wars, but those on the outer edges of the galaxy probably weren’t paying much attention. At least, according to one fan film.
For a little while there, it seemed like Axanar, the crowdfunded Star Trek fan film, was out of danger. But it turns out, the film no longer has a Fair Use leg to stand on. Unless we get some Captain Picard-level speech about why Axanar shouldn’t be seen as CBS’s property, the movie is screwed.
We know—yet another Star Wars fan film. They’re a dime a dozen. But, truly, this is a good one.
Like how some soldiers never stop fighting a war well after it’s ended, this short film Call of the Empire, by Trevor Kerr, imagines a world where remnants of the defeated Empire are still waging war against the Rebels after the Battle of Endor. It’s like seeing a glimpse of what might have happened in a galaxy far,…
Star Wars: Exile is a 16-minute fan film about a pair of Jedi who must confront a sinister Inquisitor in the employ of Darth Vader and the dark side. It’s a bit talky at times. But it also has high production values including commendable special effects, a refreshingly diverse cast, multiple lightsaber battles, and—I…
Following on the heels of CBS’ extremely detailed lawsuit against the fan film Axanar, we now hear that another Star Trek fan film has been told that it should probably stop. This time, it’s Star Trek: Federation Rising.
The female wielder of Mjolnir takes on a pack of zombies in this animated fan film. It’s all going rather well too — at least until an undead Hulk shows up for an electrifying battle.
Electrogenesis may not have the slick production values of some of the fan films we’ve seen, but what it lacks in budget, it makes up for with its story of Virgil Hawkins as a teacher who has left Static behind. But when a student comes to him for help, Virgil realizes the world may still need Static.
One of those extraterrestrial trophy hunter swings by Earth during the Crusades in the fan film Predator: Dark Ages. After dead bodies start piling up, a party of Templar Knights is sent to find a “demon,” which turns out to be a familiar alien killer.
