‘Connected’ – A Sci-Fi Short Starring Pamela Anderson

February 14th, 2016 Comments off

Connected, by Luke Gilford, is a portrait of a woman grappling with aging, self-perception, and transformation in a technologically optimized world. Jackie (Pamela Anderson) is a burnt-out AuraCycle instructor in the midst of a midlife crisis. She’s obsessed with self-improvement podcasts (voiced by Jane Fonda), and she is soon drawn to an advanced yet enigmatic wellness spa that promises to enhance her mind, body and soul. Guided by her effortless and nubile mentor, Luna (Dree Hemingway), Jackie will give up anything to feel “connected” — to herself, to the future, and to a precarious sense of perfection.

All of the changes in Star Wars

Drew Stewart made a “frame by frame” look at each film’s changes.

Star Wars

The Empire Strikes Back

Return of the Jedi

The Star Wars: Despecialized Edition attempted to undo those and still have an HD version of the movies. You can download them here.

Personally, I was never happy with the depecialized edition. I understand the reasoning behind it, but I didn’t think the final result was that good.

Also, George Lucas wanted to call Yoda “Buffy”. What kind of idiot thinks that would have been a good name for a Jedi master? Here are other bizarre things from Star Wars.

From the Verge
:

Billed widely as Ethiopia’s first post-apocalyptic sci-fi film, Crumbs, (directed by Spanish-born, Addis Ababa-based director Miguel Llansó) is the story of Birdy and Candy, survivors of a vaguely referenced “Big War” that leaves the world’s population in tatters. From the looks of it, Birdy and Candy lead a sad, strange, and terrifying life: they live in a decrepit bowling alley, a rusted spaceship hangs immobile in the sky above, and Birdy has to face off with what appears to be a Power Ranger on horseback. Oh yeah, and Santa Claus makes an appearance. The Hollywood Reporter, which reviewed Crumbs at the Rotterdam Film Festival, gave it a tentative thumbs up, calling it “outlandish and imaginative.” IndiePix just picked up the film for distribution in the US and frankly, I couldn’t be more excited.
