Things get out of hand when two nitpickers debate the finer points of Star Wars politics.
Date: July 15, 2005
Camera: Paul Saunders
Editing and Effects: Graham Stark
After viewing "Revenge of the Sith", two Star Wars fans begin a discussion about whether the film can serve as a political metaphor for any society or whether it's incompatible with Canadian politics. Conversation quickly turns to the industrial capacity of Naboo and the implications for democratic monarchy. Despite some subtle use of Force suggestion, one of the fans simply won't drop the subject, despite the other pointing out how his obsession with economic and political details has gotten them banned from conventions. An argument develops, and cans of whoop-Force are opened, culminating in a lightsaber duel.
