You might have thought that Star Wars seemed old-fashioned before, but a fan remix of the original trilogy brings out the music-hall of the whole thing... and makes you realize how modern George Lucas really was.

The fan movie Silent Star Wars appeared on YouTube this weekend, and pretty much boils the original movies to their essence... which is to say, the comedy of Stormtroopers and awesomeness of Darth Vader. And the music - potentially John Williams' best.
