EW approached filmmaker Kyle Newman (Fanboys) with a simple proposition: Will you make us a short film that collects famous voices talking about Star Wars…
Aren: Since it’s the 30th Anniversary of RETURN OF THE JEDI, I thought posting this EW video appreciation was fitting. JEDI remains my favourite movie ever, to this day, and will probably always will be. I’ve seen it easily more than a 100 times. I could watch it every day of my life and never get tired of it. Now go out there and watch it. Appreciate the best ending of a trilogy ever.
Aren: Here’s a link to our ongoing coverage of Hot Docs 2013. I’ve already reviewed THE HUMAN SCALE and PUSSY RIOT—A PUNK PRAYER. Reviews of ANITA and NARCO CULTURA will be up tomorrow morning. Check them out, and be sure to check out the movies if you’re in Toronto.
Aren: Neill Blomkamp is amazing and DISTRICT 9 blew everyone away. There’s no reason this won’t do the same. I don’t know why I had forgotten about it, but ELYSIUM will likely end up being the film of the summer.

UPSTREAM COLOR is easily my most anticipated film of the year. After PRIMER, Shane Carruth is easily the smartest independent filmmaker working in the US. I have no idea what this’ll be about, but I’m sure it’ll be fascinating.
