Darth Vader in Love

Have you ever fallen in love?

Was it gentle? Did you suddenly notice someone in a way you never did before? And then you look at the rest of them and see it all differently? Or was it awkward? You're in the middle of doing something, and your train of thought gets utterly derailed and it's like you're on some drug?

Or maybe you always felt drawn to somebody - to their style and their jokes - and gravity just throws you together one day. Being in love is beautiful, a little terrifying at times, and can happen to any of us.

Darth Vader in Love was made for the BBC's The Peter Serafinowicz Show. It deals with the question that none of us ever wanted to ask about the big, semi-mechanical, former Jedi: what happens when he meets the right woman?

This skit may lose a bit of steam towards the end, but it's a fine film parody, and quite funny. It's certainly good enough to share. A lot of effort and skill was put into wardrobe, cinematography, and dialogue. I love her costume design, how they recreate the Galactic Empire's look and feel, and the bit with the hologram is just brilliant and hysterical.

Next week will have one new review here and one posted elsewhere, among other non-Fan-made Gem surprises. I hope you enjoy them all.
