Bust out your Jedi robes, and make your way down to Brick at Blue Star at 9 p.m. Tonight they’ll be hosting a Star Wars Party where they’ll be screening everyone’s favorite, Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones or the introduction of CGI Yoda, on a 30 foot screen. Can I get a hand if you miss puppet Yoda?

Who am I kidding? This is a terrible movie so they’re making it less painful by playing the Rifftrax commentary from the boys behind Mystery Science Theater 3000 along with it.

Via Rifftrax:

It's Binks-ian fun for the whole family as George Lucas empties the contents of his brain onto film one more time! This go around, the part of the annoying kid is explored more deeply by a new annoying kid, Hayden Christensen, in a performance so jaw-droppingly wooden and laughable it’s got to make Keanu Reeves feel pretty darned good about himself.

Ewan McGregor returns as that one guy who was once played by that other British guy, and he’s apparently become comfortable enough with his green screen acting that he no longer even pretends it matters whether he puts in effort or not. And returning for the role of Padme Amidala is Natalie Portman, looking cute but losing her bid to keep her voice from grinding into her audience’s skull like a buzz saw.

All of this would be a RiffTrax dream come true – but making it even dream come true-ier is that Mike and Kevin are joined by none other than Chad Vader, brother of Darth and star of his own colossally successful internet series. It is quite simply a RiffTacular RiffStravaganza!

It really, really is the absolute worst one. Don't believe us? Ask Red Letter Media.

Be sure to head out tonight. Sure, we'll suffer through the romantically painful dialogue between Anakin and Padmé, but at least we'll do it together. 

Free, 9pm, Brick at Blue Star Arts Complex, 108 Blue Star, (210) 262-8653,
