Homegrown Star Wars, with big-screen magic intact | CNET News.com:

"Clocking in at more than 40 minutes, with high-quality special effects and production that falls just short of professional, 'Revelations' is surely destined to be a landmark in 'fan films,' a genre of amateur filmmaking growing in sophistication with each new generation of digital tools. And if 'Revelations' acting isn't quite on a par with Laurence Olivier, well, just remember that Jar-Jar Binks wasn't exactly an Academy Awards nominee, either."




I watched "Star Wars: Revelations". It is astounding. The production values are through the roof. The lighting is great, the sound is great, the digital match-ups between live and CG are great, the set design is great - everything is great except the acting and the story - just like a real Star Wars movie!
