Weird Science is a John Hughes (writer and director) film from the 80s. Two friends manage to turn one of their action figures into a smokin’ hot woman played by Kelly LeBrock. It’s a right of passage for the two as they learn from her in ways they hadn’t intended.
Roll on a few decades and we encounter Hughes the Force. This is a 35 minute YouTube short film that succeeds in blending Star Wars with Weird Science and other Hughes movies. I was sceptical when I hit play – but, wait, it’s surprisingly good.
You can download the movie for free and check out a host of bonus content and the website itself. You can even donate if you liked the movie. Donations go to future projects as the disclaimer carefully points out to LucasFilm’s famous lawyers – Hughes the Force is a non-profit film.
