Dmitry Grozov aka Ahriman made this awesome fan trailer for Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope in the style of ’70s anime, complete with Japanese dub. It’s not as smooth or sharp as OtaKing’s legendary TIE Fighter, but the jankiness only adds nostalgia.
Go back to the ’90s with this so-bad-its-good trailer from the 1999 TV mini-series Atomic Train, which not only perfectly captures the era, it manages to give away the entire story from start to finish. The tagline for the series was the equally awesome “The Final Stop is Deadly.”

We know it’s not a living, breathing creature, but we found the wobbly antics of Delta Hack’s low-tech robotic “dog” stumbling across various obstacles to be adorable. We couldn’t stop rooting for the little guy as it flopped and fumbled its way through the course.
