Probably. It’s probably the best damn Star Wars fan flick you’ve ever seen. At the very least, I can say with some confidence that it’s the best damn Italian Star Wars fan flick you’ve ever seen… unless maybe you’re Italian and watch a lot of Star Wars fan flicks. Fuck, I don’t know. All I know is that this is Dark Resurrection Vol. 0, the long-awaited prequel to 2007’s Dark Resurrection Vol. 1, and the 10 minutes I’ve been able to watch so far have been absolutely gorgeous. Kind of heartbreakingly so, especially after I recently watched all the prequels on Blu-ray. Oh! I think I got the English subtitles turned on, but if not, just hit the “CC” button. And enjoy. Thanks to Ricky for the tip!
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.
