10 Flicks: Movies with Star Wars References | Movie Blog

Star Wars has inspired thousands of films since it took over our planet in 1977.  It’s pretty difficult to surf YouTube these days without coming across lightsabre battles and reenactments.  One site in particular divided the film into 15 seconds chunks and had fans claim fill in each one with their own artistic vision.  The result is pretty interesting stuff.  You can check it out over at Star Wars Uncut.

But what about the major motion pictures inspired by Star Wars?  A quick Google search revealed a massive list of films compiled by WOOKIEEPEDIA.  I figured there would be a ton of movies that referenced George Lucas’ epic franchise.

Going through the list, I came up with my top 10.  Enjoy!
