Movie Reviews

Fettastic | Madison, WI USA | 11/02/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I don't know what these naysayers are whining about, it's cool! I am an avid collector of Star Wars Quicktime clips, and have recorded tons from ET, Access Hollywood and others. I hadn't seen ANY of these interviews! I t was cool. The DVD also offers uninterrupted interviews in their entirety (only about 5-7 minutes long each, but hey)."
Surprisingly Good...

"After viewing 'The Unauthorized Star Wars Story' I had very low expectations for this selection. Surprisingly, the content was pretty good. The narration was sound, the interviews were well mixed, and the content is generous. If I had any real complaints, it would be that this DVD concentrates a bit too much on non-Star Wars subject matter. Overall? If you are a sci-fi fan pick it up."
Not Much Here.

"This DVD is a hodge-podge of footage of people waiting in line, brief interviews with the stars of the films, short cuts of sci-fi films and television shows, longer interviews with the series' fans, and a few other eccentricies. The narration of the DVD is really well done and covers up for some of the poor editing. However, other than the narration, that's about it. The "interviews" with the stars are really short and most were done waiting in line for movie premiers. The DVD also contrasts Star Wars to Star Trek and towards the end of the disc an attempt at comparing Ed Wood to George Lucas is made. Can you believe it, comparing PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE to STAR WARS! Unbelievable.The only DVD extras are a series of short interviews with some of the stars of Star Wars. Most are with cast members from THE PHANTOM MENACE. However, there are a couple other interviews that took place over twenty years ago with THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK. The best interview in the whole set is with Harrison Ford and Anthony Daniels; it is by far the most entertaining and interesting part of the DVD.This is a DVD that only Star Wars fans can appreciate it. It's not too bad for a hodge-podge collection of film. However, some of the editing is poor and there isn't anything new or thought-provoking. Besides that, the DVD compares Ed Wood's films to STAR WARS. If it weren't for the good narration and the Harrison Ford/Anthony Daniels interview, the DVD would have received one star just for the Ed Wood comparison."
Interesting and Nostalgic

"This DVD is an interesting collection of interviews and news footage. It's what you would expect. You will see a young Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill.The DVD is kind of choppy in its presentation, but the interviews are interesting and the look into the past is very nostalgic. I didn't know what to expect when I bought this, but I wasn't totally disappointed.The Star Wars fan will love it, but the general public...may get bored. There are no DVD Extras of note either."
