Did I say, "your" favorite movies? My deepest apologies: I meant, "my" favorite movies--amazing (by my standards) photographs from behind the scenes of some of my favorite films. Still, my taste in movies is mostly based on a nostalgia that must be shared by some in my generation, and some of the cinema referenced here is universally acclaimed and beloved. None of these images come from behind the scenes of any particularly obscure movies either, but they do come to you from pretty deep into the light web.
The moments pictured here come from behind the scenes of twelve verifiably popular films or "cult classics" that presumably have small but fervently loyal followings. Yes, there is always the chance that I just call some of these films cult classics to delude myself into thinking there is a hoard of like-minded secret fans somewhere out there, sharing in my singular movie preferences. I could also be fooling myself thinking that these movies are on anybody else's “favorites” list but my own. Regardless, enjoy these 12 shots from behind the scenes of some damn good films if I do say so myself... and I do.

It would be interesting to know if George Lucas planned on using this model or the concept of a moon-sized military base that doubles as a weapon capable of destroying planets as a plot point in every Star Wars Universe story ever told. Chances are Lucas did not expect Star Wars to launch a franchise that would be lucrative for the rest of his life, let alone did he think he was creating something that would be incorporated into popular culture and our collective consciousness. The half-made "deathstar" pictured here is just one of many nouns from "...a galaxy far, far away" that are now known in this galaxy.
