Star Wars Cut Into 473 Little Pieces

Star Wars Uncut is a project in which the popular movie about a young man desperate to fire his torpedoes into his sister's exhaust port has been chopped up into 15-second chunks, which have then been remade by people all over the world with nothing better to do. The result is the movie equivalent of one of those awful charity singles where one idiot after another takes turns to ruin individual lines of perfectly good songs.

Having said that, this might just be the greatest idea in the history of great ideas. Have a wookiee:

I can't help but think that:
  • This is going to be exhausting after about four minutes
  • 'Star Wars Uncut' is just about the least accurate name it could have been given. 'Star Wars Cut Into 473 Little Pieces' would have been more appropriate.
  • I'm slightly annoyed with myself for not joining in and might have to start 'The Empire Strikes Back Cut Into 496 Little Pieces'.
Star Wars Uncut was due to premiere at some film festival or other in Copenhagen last week but I can't find any mention of it on t'interwebs, which means it was either a complete disaster or it was so utterly gobsmackular that it rendered the entire audience incapable of communicating with the outside world.

Were you there? Have you seen it? Can you speak? Let us know!
