DARTH BY DARTHWEST: The plunder of 20th century pop culture continues

I've been saying this for years: as the tools get better and more widespread, soon anyone will be able to plunder the movies and music and literature and art and the rest of the output of the 20th century and mix and mash it up into new art in the 21st century. We've barely scratched the surface of what's possible. Here's a new example, which while amazing, is still just the bare beginnings. I expect full feature films with 60s Kirk, Spock, and maybe Columbo, and Lawrence of Arabia, and maybe Monty Python, all in some new feature film, with the exact, faithful voice and likeness renderings of the original actors, but new dialogue, new scenes, and nobody (Hollywood lawyers take note) will be able to stop it.
