(Mel Brooks, US 1987, 96 min.)
Mel Brooks. One of Brooks’s most quotable films, this Star Wars send-up takes on the mega-franchise, American politics, and Hollywood itself. Luke Skywalker, excuse me, Lone Starr must do battle with the evil President Skroob (Brooks) and Dark Helmet for the hand of Druish Princess Vespa and the air over planet Druidia. With the help of a diminutive merchandises chilling mystic named Yogurt (also Brooks), a half-man/half-dog co-pilot, and a purity defending droid, can Lone Starr and his band of weirdos save the day?
