1982

Why Watch? Because once you’ve seen an Ewok rocking out to the Mos Eisley Cantina Band, you can never un-see it. I wish this short film were somewhere in better quality, but someone has clearly taken the time to blend the usable parts together here (along with what, sadly, looks like bootleg footage from a theater showing). This mockumentary features Warwick Davis on his quest to find meaningful work, and after turning down the idea of playing football for Chelsea, he discovers the universe of Star Wars, where he thinks he’ll fit in nicely. It features the entire main cast of the films both as themselves and as their characters as well as some behind-the-scenes footage from the set. Funny, sweet, and a blast of nostalgia, this is definitely a cool little ride back through the universe. What does it cost? Just 25 minutes of your time. Check out Return of the Ewok for yourself:

What daring! What arrogance! We salute these trailers! In 1982, John Milius brought Conan the Barbarian to life with questionable authenticity and a gallon or three of body oil. Arnold Schwarzenegger was the only man at the time for the job, and James Earl Jones the only man willing to turn into a snake and fight him. Now there’s a new adaptation coming soon featuring Jason Momoa. He’s got a huge loincloth to fill, but, unlike Schwarzenegger, it’s almost certain he didn’t have to tone down his workout routine in order to wield a sword properly. Arnold was a monster.

Every day, come rain or shine or internet tubes breaking, Film School Rejects showcases a trailer from the past. How to even describe the movie featured today. No plot. No characters. A documentary with no narrative. Plus, these monks seem to be chanting the title over and over and over. Until it, you hadn’t really seen the world you lived in. After it, there are plenty of randomly fit together images set to a breathtaking score. Think you know what it is? Check the trailer out for yourself:

Every day, come rain or shine or internet tubes breaking, Film School Rejects showcases a trailer from the past. This trailer loves a good joke, and this is the best kind: a joke on the children. It’s the night that no one comes home because they’re all too busy playing with their masks. The fear was real, but there was an iconic boogeyman missing. Think you know what it is? Check out the trailer after the jump.

Every day, come rain or shine or internet tubes breaking, Film School Rejects showcases a trailer from the past. Today’s trailer is the pure spectacle of weird that helps your mind grow every day. A family moves from the US to a house in Japan only to find out that it’s haunted by ancient spirits who smash plates and swing swords around. The acting is bargain basement, the toy stuffed spider is the scariest thing about it, and the trailer does not make any damned sense whatsoever. Think you know what it is? Check out the trailer after the jump.

Every day, come rain or shine or internet tubes breaking, Film School Rejects showcases a trailer from the past. Today’s trailer is programmed by Master Control to survive by all means. A computer genius is taken prisoner and held captive inside the computer itself, forced against his will to play electronic games of Ultimate Frisbee Deathmatch. Welcome to The Grid. This one’s pretty obvious, eh? Check out the trailer after the jump.
