to be fair, this is a bit beyond "sweded" - it's a shot-for-shot remake cut together from 15 second chunks submitted to the site (http://starwarsuncut.com/). I am pretty sick of everything star wars, and have been for awhile now, but definitely going to a screening of this.
paper bag puppets >> legos
and Carrie Fisher was once one hot piece of ass
Bam! And I'm done ruining lives for today.
About a tenth of these work.
Whippets driving a spaceship car and playing space chess. I would watch the SHIT out of that.

Is 'sweding' what the kids like to call a 'forced meme'?
I for one love sweding and was really hoping it would catch on past the time it was being promoted for the Be Kind Rewind film.
I'm not sure if it's become its own 'thing' yet.
This one, not so much.
WHO WANTS DESSERT
A forced meme made of forced memes. I mean, seriously, a Big Lebowski parody in the trailer?
Who wants dessert...You have no idea what you're talking about do you?
My problem with Star Wars Uncut is that they never really came up with a clear set of standards for re-doing the scenes, so some of them are legitimately funny and made by people on a .95 budget, and then some of them are made using way too much technology (people with access to fancy editing software, hi-def cameras, computer effects, etc.) so the attitude of the project is all over the place.
That's what I love about this. It's so haphazard that a lot of people have different interpretations of scenes, like the hamburger flying off.
This almost worked and I'm giving it an extra star for the spirit of the thing. All they needed was one rule that said "entries that obviously didn't try will be disqualified" to make this really fun.

'Hardware Wars' was the original Star Wars 'Sweded', and in fact was the original 'Swede', before it was called such.
So, uh ... fuck you!
The best thing about this is easily all the different ways people try to replicate Chewbacca. Dog in a wig, girl with hair over face, mop on head. Just using an action figure is the cheap way out.
(Also, ha ha look at all the really fat Han Solos.)
