In a galaxy far, far away a powerful new lightsaber simulator app has been developed by Brisk and Star Wars: Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace, which will be re-released in theaters in 3D February 10th. The iPhone/Android app allows you to choose The Light Side or The Dark Side, then use your finger as a fully functioning lightsaber. Click to read more and to see screengrabs.
This past weekend was the premiere episode of Saturday Night Live's 37th season. Alec Baldwin was the host (for the eleventieth time) and integral part of yet another round of hilarious "never before seen" screen test auditions. This time, it was for the 25th anniversary of Top Gun. These always seem to do so well, it's amazing they haven't done more. Take a look at this past weekend's clips along with the other classics then let us know which movie you think they should do next in the comments section after the jump.
Look, motherf*cker. I know what sound a lightsaber makes, OK? It's just hard to transcribe. I've been practicing making lightsaber noises since I was a little kid and by now I'm pretty godd@mn good at it. I'm not as good as these guys though. They're obviously much cooler than me.
We've featured dubstep a couple times here at COED - once to spotlight magical motion-freezing headphones and another to highlight how nutty those Russians are. Today, we get a dubstep video that features the Dark Side. Growing up, all the kids wanted to be either a Jedi or Han Solo. Me? I wanted to be Vader. Dude's got a kick-ass voice and can choke you out from across the table without touching you. Attention someone with video editing skillz - cut a dubstep mashup of cinema's greatest villains... let's introduce a little anarchy. Check out the vid after the jump.
This video apparently won the 'George Lucas Selects' award. A filmmaker's friend, never having seen the movie, is asked to relate Episodes IV,V, and VI. I wish I could say that she messes it up for some other reason than she's a girl, but that would be lying. Check out her hilarious attempt after the jump!
At COED we try to pay homage to the funniest sites on the web. With our Tumblrs of the Week column, we highlight the best, most WTF Tumblrs. This week’s Tumblrs feature timeless wisdom from an elderly green resident of Dagobah, Steve Buscemi's peepers added to chicks' faces, and the epitome of existing in your 20s now. Check 'em out after the jump.
James Montgomery Flagg's 1917 Uncle Sam "I Want You" poster was based on the original British Lord Kitchener poster of three years earlier. It was used to recruit soldiers for both World War I and World War II. The Uncle Sam character is actually based on Samuel Wilson, a meat packer from upstate NY who shipped beef to the U.S. Army in barrels marked "U.S." during the War of 1812. Flagg called it "most famous poster in the world." We'd have to agree as countless artists have given it their own twist with iconic characters substituting for Uncle Sam like Darth Vader, Doctor Doom, GI Joe's Cobra, Master Shredder and more. Check it out after the jump.

AOL News reported that we (America) would not be able to survive a Battle: Los Angeles style attack from threats beyond our solar system, according to retired Army Colonel John Alexander. As a species I think we know when to hold 'em and when to fold 'em, that's what makes movies in which fellow humans overcome insurmountable odds so entertaining and rewarding. But, some movies really stretch our suspension of disbelief with their extremely lopsided David vs. Goliath battles that are, in reality, un-winnable. Which movies? Find out after the jump!

Ever since Twilight flashed its sparkly fangs onto the silver screen, young girls and crazy cougars everywhere have been going gaga for "monsters" with pale complexions and six packs that us guys can't compete with. They've already made vampires and werewolves pansies and I have my suspicions that mummies and the Creature from the Black Lagoon are next. Here are a few monsters that, no matter how hard female writers may try, won't be able to turn into sexy models. At least, I hope not. See what makes them so very un-sexy after the jump!
Star Wars and video games are a lot like the timeless combination of peanut butter and chocolate - they're just as good on their own, but, when they're together, you better believe you have one hell of a collabo on your hands! Since the advent of arcades and home video game consoles, there have been Star Wars games to provide hours of entertainment no matter where you're playing.

Read on to see our list of the best and worst of Star Wars video games- punch it, Chewie!
Geeks and nerds are a somewhat skittish lot that tend to stay away from places replete with loud noises, rowdiness and general human contact. That's not to say the most famous worlds and universes of geekdom deprive themselves of a watering hole to unwind and drink their troubles away. Get ready to travel to galaxies far, far away to some of the greatest bars many of our favorite characters call their home away from home!

Decades ago, viewers were fascinated with a device from Star Trek called the Tricorder. Now we have those devices in the form of mobile phones. With that in mind, there are a few other fictional devices from movies and television that should follow in the Tricorder's path. So if there is a Santa Claus of breakthrough technologies, here is a list of items he needs to get cracking on. See our list after the jump!

The show will be hosted by NPH, Neil Patrick Harris, who's nominated for Best Male Performance (ew) for his work in Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions.

Hot pics of Gamer Girls....
As the years have progressed, video games have becoming increasingly cinematic, with their story lines and characters often drawing comparisons with films both past and present. With that being said, here are the "Tinsel Town" equivalents of some of our favorite (and not so favorite) video games.
The sequel to Star Wars The Force Unleashed released yesterday. One of our top gamer reviewers took a stab at it and unleashed some truth on what is one of the most highly anticipated games of the year. Check out screenshots and the official trailer.
Now that anyone can strive for 15 minutes of fame - in a fraction of that time thanks to sites like YouTube of course - there is more than an abundance of intentional and not-so-intentional hilarity posted online. COED culled the web for listings and polls of what cyberspace peeps seem to find the most entertaining viral videos, picked 5, and finally added the theoretical outcome if herb was added to the recipe. And because you'll be stoned, there's absolutely no need to explain each video's theme or concept... you'll find your own personal comedic euphoria!
The holy grail of dating is to actually find a girl who's hot but is still willing to go out with you. And as you've already figured out, that's really hard. But even if you're not as attractive or as suave as that friend who has so much sex you want to punch him, even if you "have no game," there are a few ways to tip the scales in your favor.
Harrison Ford is a Hollywood institution. He played Indiana Jones, banged Princess Leia, and spoke wookie. He's a credit to men everywhere. And part of his badassery is the fact that he can pretty much bitch slap you with his focused, steely glare. Not only did that testicle tearing stare scare the bad guys, but it might have scared success away from his co-stars.
