In the 100 days leading up to STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS, I am counting down my 100 favorite things about Star Wars. Here is today’s entry:

#62: Hardware Wars

This may well be the very first fan film parody of Star Wars. I think I first saw it on SELECT TV or ON TV (precursors to HBO and Showtime). It was made for $8000 and has grossed more than $1,000,000, making it one of the most profitable short films of all time. Kids, you may have to ask your parents what some of the appliances in the movie are.
