Introducing: Machete Order
Now I’d like to modify this into what I’ve named Machete Order on the off chance that this catches on because I’m a vain asshole.
Next time you want to introduce someone to Star Wars for the first time, watch the films with them in this order: IV, V, II, III, VI
Notice something? Yeah, Episode I is gone.
Fantastic post on why you should be watching the Star Wars saga in a different order that what you’re probably traditionally used to. Long, but very well worth the read.
This is a little project that, as is often the case, started off as a throwaway doodle. With a little encouragement from my friend Tom Dougherty, link on the right I turned it into several drawings. Whats fun is that the Star Wars universe really blends with the goofy, strangely-named world of Dr. Seuss pretty easily. I have a couple more of these up my sleeve which I hope I can get around to soon. Stay tuned, and enjoy!
The evolution of the warp drive effect from the Star Trek movies, from the spectacular neon streak photography of The Motion Picture through the rather less awesome animated trails of the later TOS movies to the feeble CG of Nemesis, where they couldn’t even be bothered to include the ‘warp stretch’ effect. And what’s with those smoke trails? Has the Enterprise got a cracked manifold? *sigh*
