Star Wars reimagined as a silent movie

I have to give this guy credit. He boiled down the first three Star Wars movies into a little more than a minute, and he did it while reimagining them as a silent movie:

    I liked this better than the original Star Wars. It’s got all the silliness, and doesn’t waste time with showboating.

    Great fun! Movies lost something when they gained sound and colour. A good filmmaker can tell a story without dialogue, and films just look better in black and white. B & W is perfect for movies where the bad guy wears black. CGI may make filmmakers even lazier. Notice how much better the acting was in the original trilogy? Now they think anything can be fixed in post-production.

    Damn, but isn’t the Interblag wonderful? I mean, first we had Star Wars in thirty seconds reenacted by bunnies, and now this.

    Naaah. Just George Lucas. The Star Wars movies were just as much an advertisement for Industrial Light and Magic as anything else. He’s a good storyteller, but awful scriptwriter and worse director.

    That was a lot of fun.

    This is cute, and a nice mashup, but it’s just a mashup — I say this because it’s not in anything like the original order. To someone who hadn’t seen the original movies, it would be merely confusing.

    Now, something a bit more complete and coherent, perhaps with the original John Williams score remixed in the style of a silent movie score? That I would like to see! As for this, it’s a lot of fun, but i’m not sure I’d qualify it as a “reimagining”.
