Even a galaxy far, far away had conspiracy theorists….

If you’ve heard of the conspiracy theory documentary movie about 9/11 called Loose Change then you’ll see why this video is cleverly (and punnily) called Luke’s Change. It is a revealing documentary that blows the lid off an intergalactic cover-up larger than the smuggling ring involving the spice mine of Kessel, the Kessel Cover-up. Of course, like many of the truths we cling to, it will depend greatly on your own point of view.

Was the destruction of the Death Star an inside job? Watch and decide for yourself:

Kick-Ass 2 red band trailer

The cast from Kick-Ass are back (minus Nicholas Cage) and they’ve added Jim Carrey who plays Colonel Stars and Stripes and is almost unrecognizable. It also looks like they have several other costumed characters as well, but enough of my prattling.

Here’s the red band trailer for the sequel to Kick-Ass, aptly titled, Kick-Ass 2.

Coming August 16th.

White House offers an official response to a petition to build a Death Star

Yes.  This is an actual thing.  The White House has a site (petitions.whitehouse.gov) where the average American citizen can start a petition to implore the government to consider a proposal, with the condition that it attracts at least 25,000 signatures.

Well, someone decided to petition the government of the United States of America to build a Death Star and received a whopping 34,435 signatures, prompting an official response from the White House. And it was awesome! This must be the geekiest administration I’ve been witness to, which in my mind is a good thing.

This is the End red band trailer

Well, the apocalypse is upon us. Luckily we have some great looking comedy from a bunch of comedians and actors to keep our mind off the zombies, floods, earthquakes, meteors, alien annihilation or whichever way the end was supposed to go down today.

This is the End is a movie about some sort of apocalyptic event and the ensuing hilarity. James Franco stars along with Seth Rogan, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Michael Cera and a bunch of other people who frequent the Apatow-ian movies that seemed to have spawned all these wonderfully talented comedians.

The movie was written in 2007 by Seth Rogan and costar Jay Baruchel, in what I can only imagine must have been a stoned session of them sitting around postulating what would happen to them and their friends should some cataclysmic event transpire.

All of the actors play themselves in This is the End which, in my opinion, gives them more opportunities to have fun with (and at the expense of) each other and ultimately entertain us. But enough about my opinion. Check it out:
