Hardware Wars: Special Edition (1997)

Rating: ***
Director: Ernie Fosselius

Ernie Fosselius's cult classic parody "Hardware Wars" (1977) gets a digital facelift just in time to ride the "Star Wars: Special Edition" (1997) wave. Over twenty clever computer effects are inserted into the original footage in a manner very similar to the special edition of "Star Wars." Some scenes are totally new while others are just composites, and thankfully the entire hyperspace sequence has been enhanced considerably (the only thing I didn't like about the original). Great stuff, and it's good to have a decent copy of the film for a change. Now, if someone would just re-release "Pork Lips Now" and "Closet Cases Of The Nerd Kind..."
