Backyard Blockbusters!


I’ve always had a certain fondness for fan films. Done right, they can be a great new way to enjoy a familiar universe. Done poorly, they can make you wish you’d never been born. Evidently my love for these homemade homages is shared, as seen by Backyard Blockbusters, a documentary about the people behind some famous and infamous fan films both old and new.

And if you’re in the mood for some fan film fun, why not indulge in Blue Meanie and Skaromantic Comedy?

“Backyard Blockblusters” was made by an acquaintance of mine. “Star Trek: The Pepsi Generation” gets a brief shoutout but nothing about my “Doctor Who” films. Apparently he’ll cover those in the sequel, should there be one!

Damn, can I get in line for pimpery of my Who, uh….”tributes?” 🙂
