Fun read: on why we really love Princess Leia Emily Asher-Perrin: Can We Talk About Why We Really Love Princess Leia?:

Forced to be a sexual object for a crime lord? Choke him to death and get outta dodge. Find out your stealth party was spotted on by the enemy? Hunt them down with their own vehicles. Meet a strange new species that doesn’t speak your language? Share food and make friends. As we’re shown time and time again, there is nothing that this woman cannot do. She makes Luke and Han look practically incompetent if you’re actually keeping a scoreboard — Luke only has one or two solid goals that he feels obligated to follow up on, and Han spends half his time in the trilogy jamming to The Clash’s “Should I Stay or Should I Go.” You need Leia to keep it all together.

New Star Wars Movie From the Makers of ‘Troops’

First, lets get this clear, Troops was and still is the best Star Wars fan film ever made. Download it. Watch it. Laugh. It’s old. But somehow, since it mashes COPS with Star Wars, it works.

Turns out the makers of Troops have started production on a new, epic fan film, and the Slashdot crowd isn’t impressed. Their criticism’s aren’t close to fair. So far, if you ask me, this rocks.
