Wow you're grouchy
I don't agree at all with your assessment. It's a fun/silly/creative and mostly campy project, and I thought it was hilarious.
I'm about as far away from a Star Wars fan as possible as well. I don't think the first films were particularly good, and the last three were outright terrible. The best thing about SW for me were the old games, the SW Arcade orginal and X-Wing / Tie Fighter for PC
While this video is a bit much to take in one sitting, it is definitely not just for super fan types. If anything, people who would like it more than Star Wars fans would be those who enjoy the comedy value of improvised filmmaking, classic so-bad-theyre-good sci-fi B movies, Ed Wood style stuff, and so on.
I guess I'm not the biggest modern sci-fi fan though. I sort of hated Battlestar Galactica (new), all post-TNG Star Trek other than the new film, basically everything on the Sci-Fi channel, which is just bad, not hilarious/fun bad, but just plain terrible. I sort of enjoyed the few episodes of Stargate that I saw, but not enough to slog through it. Etc and so on.
As a matter of fact, the new Trek movie is a good example of the opposite of what you're describing. The die-hard old-school Trek people seemed to hate it, saying it wasn't really Star Trek, etc, whine, complain. The casual moviegoers and reviewers seemed to like it, particularly those who weren't even fans of Star Trek to begin with. I think hardcore Star Wars fans would probably be much more likely to dislike this irrevent open-source version if anything, compared to those of us who don't take it seriously at all.
