Danny Boyle’s new film, 127 Hours, premieres tomorrow. James Franco stars as Aron Ralston, a climber who is forced to amputate his own arm after it is crushed under a rock. In honor of Ralston’s remarkable tale of survival, we here at Screen Junkies came up with a list of other memorable films that feature scenes of amputation. Some of them are disturbing, others are lighthearted, but all of them contain badly mutilated limbs, and that’s the important part. Enjoy!
Oh internet, why do you do these things? I heart you.

BoingBoing was sent this video that condenses the entire Star Wars Trilogy into two minutes AND does the whole thing in paper animation. I love it. Way better than spending six hours on the originals. Sure, the special effects aren't as impressive but the time spent on cutting out every little detail from construction paper deserves major kudos. Good job, Jeremy Messsersmith, a Minneapolis musician.
George Lucas must have lost a lot of credits betting on pod races over the weekend, because he's hard at work trying to scrounge up some quick cash. And there's no easier way for the man to make money than re-releasing Star Wars yet again, this time in 3D.
Actually, there is better way: he can re-release all six Star Wars films in 3D in 2012. After all, the Battle of Yavin will look cool in 3D, but Jar Jar Binks stepping in sh*t will be out of this world! (Empire Online)

I know I'm not alone in citing The Empire Strikes Back as my favorite Star Wars film. It built upon the mythos presented in the original and expanded the universe in very cool ways and played up the darker tones without transparently trying to sell more toys. And it didn't include Ewoks. Gary Kurtz was George Lucas's partner for the first two films in the saga, and now he's speaking out for the first time about what makes the series suck now. Namely, it's Lucas's greed and desire to sell more toys. Beam me up (or something) LA Times!
"I could see where things were headed. The toy business began to drive the [Lucasfilm] empire. It's a shame. They make three times as much on toys as they do on films. It's natural to make decisions that protect the toy business but that's not the best thing for making quality films…. The first film and ‘Empire’ were about story and character, but I could see that George’s priorities were changing. The emphasis on the toys, it's like the cart driving the horse."
Oh snap! Equestrian BURN.
“We had an outline [for the third film] and George changed everything in it. Instead of bittersweet and poignant he wanted a euphoric ending with everybody happy. The original idea was that they would recover [the kidnapped] Han Solo in the early part of the story and that he would then die in the middle part of the film in a raid on an Imperial base. George then decided he didn’t want any of the principals killed. By that time there were really big toy sales and that was a reason.”
That totally almost explains Jabba's faaaabulous uncle, Ziro the Hutt.
He's truly entered the Dark Side.
The age-old question of what if Arnold Schwarzenegger did the voice of Darth Vader in Star Wars instead of James Earl Jones has finally been answered. I can't wait until George Lucas re-releases all six films with this new, more appropriate dubbing.
Check out the video after the jump…
George Lucas excludes Samuel L. Jackson from snack time on the set of Attack of the Clones.
There's trouble a-brewin' in Nerdville. It seems the long awaited live-action "Star Wars" television show is on hold indefinitely, according to Star Wars creator and destroyer George "Big Baby Jesus" Lucas. In an interview with Digital Spy, the director cited cost as the main factor.
“They literally are Star Wars, only we’re going to have to try to do them [at] a tenth the cost… And it’s a huge challenge, [a] lot bigger than what we thought it was gonna be.”
Considering the first movie, which is beloved by all, was filmed using motion control photography and a bunch of crappy models, and the first prequel, which is hated by all, had an unlimited special effects budget, maybe George is putting too much emphasis on the bells and whistles.
Just make the damn show, and for the love of Yoda, let someone else write and direct. (Screen Rant)
A bank teller in Long Island was surprised yesterday morning when approached by a gun-toting Darth Vader. The Sith Lord forced the teller to empty their drawer before fleeing.
We all heard the stories of Lucasfilm banning the original Darth David Prowse from Star Wars events, but who would have dreamed he'd resort to this? Of course, I joke. This is obviously another stunt from Improv Everywhere. Give it up, guys. You can only run for so long. (Newsday)
Last time we saw Improv Everywhere, they were chasing down ghosts in the New York Public Library. Now the comedy troupe known for its wacky movie reenactments brings the Princess Leia/Darth Vader scene from Star Wars down into the dingy underground of Manhattan. I can't wait until the day the locals turn against these theater jokesters. Improv's going to be all over the sidewalk, brickwalls, and tip of a bum's chicken bone knife. EVERYWHERE. (Ed note: Please don't murder these guys. Okay, thanks.)
Check out the video below.
Wicked Lasers designed a blue laser called the Spyder III Pro Arctic that looks an awful lot like a lightsaber. It has the ability to kill people, and LucasFilm has a problem with that. Even the warning on the product itself basically says not to turn the thing on: Warning: Extremely dangerous is an understatement to the power of 1W of laser power. It will blind permanently and instantly and set fire quickly to skin and other body parts, use with extreme caution and only when using the included eye protection. Customers will be required to completely read and agree to our Class IV Laser Hazard Acknowledgment Form. It doesn't get more metal than setting fire to skin and other body parts. Do they mean body parts not covered by skin? What kind of creature is handling these miracles of modern science? Apparently those pussies at LucasFilm can't handle the shear awesomeness of death lasers: It has come to our attention that a company called Wicked Lasers is selling a highly dangerous product out of Hong Kong that is designed to look like a lightsaber from Star Wars. This product is not licensed or approved by Lucasfilm in any way. We have demanded that Wicked Lasers immediately cease and desist their infringing activities. As Wicked Lasers itself admits, this product can cause serious injury to the user and other people. We strongly discourage consumers from purchasing it. I guess I get it. Someone sells a product that resembles a cherished icon from your landmark films, and said product sets some kid on fire, you might wind up with egg on your face. But it's awesome blue egg that emits a 445nm ultra high power 1W beam which appears up to 4000% brighter than the Sonar's 405nm violet beam! Check out video of the Spyder III after the jump…

Snoop Dogg wields his lizzle sizzle. Adidas wants you to buy their Star Wars Originals collection, so LucasFilm made this two minute commercial that doesn't feature shoes. It stars Snoop Dogg, Daft Punk, David Beckham, Jay Baruchel, Ciara, and others in the Cantina Scene from Star Wars. My only question is, why do the patrons give the black guy trouble? If they're racist, which they clearly are, they should have known the brother would be packin' heat. Check out the spot after the jump.
