Down the Tubes: ‘Star Wars’ Trench Run Remade with CGI

Down the Tubes is a (semi) regular feature where we, the SAW staff, share our favorite movie-related videos with the Wasteland. 

Please share your video recommendations with us at or on Twitter @SAWasteland.

Yesterday, we asked you if Lucasfilm should update the effects from the Prequel Trilogy. The consensus was a resounding “NO”, so I have a pretty good idea what the reaction to this is going to be.

But roll the footage and let’s see.

I’ve made no secret of the fact that I prefer practical effects to computer generated, and this is no exception. I don’t think this update is superior to the original at all. It just looks like…a video game.

But what did you think? Is this an improvement over the clunky models of the original or do you prefer those clunky old models? Let us know in the comments below!
