Already having strong predispositions for nerdiness, which is not to be confused with having the “force,” it only makes sense for Star Wars aficionados to spend their free time sitting around the confines of their mothers’ basements counting up the number of Stormtrooper slip-ups as they watch the series ad nauseam. Apparently, according to the nerds’ tally, there are over 250 Star Wars mistakes. Whoopsies! George Lucas is probably hanging his head in shame right now. Actually…he’s more likely off somewhere swimming in a pool of money…like Scrooge McDuck in Duck Tales.
Anyways, referring to Star Wars fans as “nerds,” is kind of making me out to be the pot calling the kettle black here, especially since I am guilty of having just watched more than a few Star Wars videos on YouTube and am now writing a blog entry about Obi-Wan Kenoversights (several of which are actually pretty entertaining if you check out the video below). My favorite is when the Rebel trooper, who has just been strangled to death by Darth Vader, comes back to life and shields his face from hitting the wall after Vader hurls him across the room, killing him for a second time.
What’s your favorite mistake?
