Or nightmares, I guess. Depends on how you feel about Indiana Jones running around with Slave Leia and Chewbacca and Han Solo(!). These people at the Star Tours thing in Disneyland seem to enjoy it, but they’ve probably never read that one Star Wars Tales comic where the Millennium Falcon crashlands on Earth and Han Solo is killed by Native Americans and then 400 years pass and Chewbacca is Bigfoot and Indiana Jones finds the Falcon AND OH GOD THE HORROR, THE WRETCHEDNESS. It does seem like this 50-minute-long extravaganza — which was done for Star Tours last official ride, and included guest stars like Seth Green, Anthony Daniels and Big Poppa George himself — does seem marginally better, but I’ve only watched the first 10 minutes so far. If Han dies later from being shot with arrows I’m calling it a draw. (Via /Film)
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
