New contribution to Totally Novel on writing, update on Sweet Sixteen Killer

I've been pretty quiet lately on the blog, sorry about that. I've been laying mostly low, though I did recently begin contributing to a new website for writers and readers called Totally Novel. My first contribution for members of the site is a post I titled 3 things that prevented me from writing a novel. To read the post, sign up for a free trial. Take a look around and if you don't wanna stay, don't renew membership. That said, it's a pretty cool effort being put together by a former Google+ member like myself. As a matter of fact there are several members on the site from the old Google+ days. (Side note: there is a free membership option)
I will be contributing to the Totally Novel blog bi-monthly for now. My next addition will be in August. I'm super excited for the site and I hope you can come join us and become a part of the groups, forums, blog, workshops, and more. 
All that said, I haven't given up here. This is still my primary site and blog. 👊

The Man who Saved the World

The Man who Saved the World

Benjamin Little and I watched this hidden gem tonight. The film which is also casually known as The Turkish Star Wars is one of the more bizarre movies I've ever seen. And I've seen some pretty bizarre movies.

The film steals many scenes from Star Wars (Tie Fighters, X-Wings, Death Destroyers, Death Star, and even the Millennium Falcon make cameos). It also steals Star Wars themes and lays them over their own scenes, as well as a repeated usage of the Indiana Jones theme for most action scenes they filmed.

It is quite possibly one of the worst edited together movies I've ever seen. And that's saying something, it really is. Between the shots of Star Wars battles which make zero sense to the plot in the movie to zero continuity in their own shots to dead characters reappearing alive and well for no reason--you get lost, you really get lost.

Needless to say. It's bad. It's really, really bad.

Therefore, I recommend it highly. I had so many great laughs watching this film. A truly, bizarre mixture of copyright infringement and zero filmmaking skills. A treasure for the ages.

Has anyone seen this film? What did you think? Sound off in the comments.
