Darth Maul is from the foruth movie 'The Phantom Menace' which is by no means a classic.

I've watched all the films plenty of times and I do enjoy them. My favourite is 'Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back' from 1980.

Darth Maul is one of my favorite Star Wars characters. It's a shame his character life was so short. He was such a badass that I had a crush on him :o. His dual-bladed lightsaber and his martial arts skills were exquisite.

Too bad Ray Park's voice wasn't dastardly enough and required a voice actor...:o

The first three films were great. I prefer to pretend that the latter three don't really exist.

The Phantom Menace is no gem, but at the very least we did learn why Luke is so whiny: Like father like son I suppose. :lol:

I personally have never seen these movies but my 5 year old and all his junior kindergarten friends love them. They have made a cartoon of it now for younger kids - and they have the costumes. Everything old is new again! ;)

Speaking of costumes, I recall dressing up as Admiral Akbar as a kid for Halloween. I vividly remember trying not to rip the vinyl jumpsuit while sitting and sweating behind the plastic mask begging for air through the nostril holes. :lol:

Everko don't worry about it.

Most of MTF is full of pansy Fedtards who watch romance films and crap like Harry Potter.

They are a bit too dumb to understand the nuances of Star Wars and voilence scares their girlish souls.

Star Wars is elite, alway remember that and dont let the weak & dumb influence you or peer pressure you.

Star Wars episodes 4-6 are very good films. Episodes 1-3 aren't.
Though I agree Maul is pretty cool.

Episode I, II and III are totally unworthy of any association with the classic trilogy. Behind the digital effects it's just soulless drivel combined with awful actors and horrible dialogue.

The Prequels get a bad rep. They aren't that bad, I find some of the aspects very interesting. I find the time period they are set in more interesting than the Classics.

episode 3 is only one I consider worthy "sequel" to 4 5 and 6. ep's 1 and 2 are pretty poor.

like Jar Jar Binks- he sucks and thats is. Lucas invented him just before making ep. 1 in order to make a goofy character for kids (a la r2d2 but in another form). there was even an article who exactly pinpointed connections between JJ Binks and those "goons" cartoons and comics. similarities are uncanny.

or the bloke who plays Anakin - wretched choice. NO acting skills, I was so disappointed.

thankfully, Ian McDiarmid and Ewan McGregor in their respective roles drew the thing in the end.

Nidhogg

Hayden Christensen is fucking awful indeed. McDiarmid and McGregor are the highlights. Neeson is decent. Samuel L. Jackson is of course not a bad actor, but he just feels out of place in his role.

Vn8MZgZmeT4

The worst part, however, is the dialogue. It literally makes me sick. It is HORRIBLY written. The original characters from EP IV, V and VI can't do anything with such terrible lines to save the sacrilege on the original atmosphere.

Let's not even start on how awful some lightsaber fights are. The ones in Ep I are good, and at least there's some comedy value to see Yoda showing the moves in Ep II and III. Other than that, OVERKILL, which is also the case in so many action scenes. Then we have the never ending cartoon humour with JJB etc...

Rant over, and I haven't even watched any of the prequels for something like four years.

That particular scene with Palpatine and Mace Windu and the Jedi was a big letdown in the movie. It was the best written scene of the book but the movie made it bad.

But Anakin vs Obi-Wan and the Jedi Purge in ROTS are my 2 favorite moments of the entire 6 movies.

dont worry about it. you did say that you returned a changed man. some evidently dont know what that means.

from my standpoint you changed for the better but i am not really aware of what you did before your ban.

all i know is that you appear to be a decent person and that is good enough for me.

MAce VIndu indeed in not very inspiring role for Jackson and it shows in that scene. but Palpatine was played very well, especially that bit when he begs for mercy and than suddenly wrinkles down and transforms into that mad man Emperor yelling "power, more power!!!", it finally is revealed how smart he's been in pretending to be beaten, just in order to make himself room for the kill. that was a good bit yeah.

You are right. The end of the scene is well done. But the beggining when the 3 jedi "masters" go down so easily is stupid. In the bok Palpatine uses some nice cunning to kill them quickly and then records it, to show the senate to make it seem as though the jedi were attacking him without reason.

It was as if I wrote this myself!

Nothing could ever come close to the originals for me, but I did really like ep 3. It really sets up eps 4,5 and 6 quite well... and the moment that Anakin turned to the dark side made me quite emotional.

OK, so I watched Some of the Star wars movies again and I know now what I hated about them. The simplistic and stupid presentation of the "dark side" thing. "don't give in to your anger" and other BS. As if people in real life have a choice. Also what about the killer instinct that some people are born with. What does that have to do with "anger" and stupid choices? Also, tell the spider, the tiger and the vulture to choose the light side.

Simplistic childish view of Star Wars.
Animals kill out of necessity not anger.
Fighting for a cause or justice with a killer instinct is fine but fighting for vengance and hate is not.
ie. Fighting to defeat evil like Hilter (or Fedtards ;)) is fine but fighting to exterminate people just because you hate them is not (like Hitler)

Star Wars takes intellectual superiority to truly understand, which is why Lucas put in 3p0, ewoks, jajar for the less enlightened masses.

In terms of the episodes, best to worst 5, 4,3 & 6, 2 ,1

Star Wars is a sack of emotional Childish crap.
By the way animals often kill unnecessarily, many predators often kill other animals without eating them or they just play with the victim.
Take a look at the animal world or read some books about it before forming simplistic childish views about it.

You know, I actually think that Palpatine's dark side seduction of Anakin in ROTS was much more well done than his "attempt" at Luke.

Throughout the prequels he does a nice and careful. Making Anakin trust him and planting seeds of distrust of the Jedi Order.

With Luke its just "Give in to the HATE", "Do it!".

“A refurbished Star Wars is on somewhere or everywhere. I have no intention of revisiting any galaxy. I shrivel inside each time it is mentioned. Twenty years ago, when the film was first shown, it had a freshness, also a sense of moral good and fun. Then I began to be uneasy at the influence it might be having. The first bad penny dropped in San Francisco when a sweet-faced boy of twelve told me proudly that he had seen Star Wars over a hundred times. His elegant mother nodded with approval. Looking into the boy's eyes I thought I detected little star-shells of madness beginning to form and I guessed that one day they would explode.

'I would love you to do something for me,' I said.

'Anything! Anything!' the boy said rapturously.

'You won't like what I'm going to ask you to do,' I said.

'Anything, sir, anything!'

'Well,' I said, 'do you think you could promise never to see Star Wars again?'

He burst into tears. His mother drew herself up to an immense height. 'What a dreadful thing to say to a child!' she barked, and dragged the poor kid away. Maybe she was right but I just hope the lad, now in his thirties, is not living in a fantasy world of secondhand, childish banalities.”

Well, many people saw them as kids. They surely wouldn't be as beloved otherwise. Still, for the better part of a decade adults have been salivating all over generic superhero movies :shrug:

That about sums up how I feel about those movies.
George Lucas' attitude towards fans has been downright despicable. His refusal to release the unaltered versions of the OT is stupid as hell.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LDCjIjsZp_Y

He does seem to want to redeem himself and I think by selling Lucasarts to Disney and donating most of that money (we're talking 4 billion here) to charity he's doing just that. Imo Disney has made some excellent movies over the last decade, and Lucas really didn't so it can only get better. That being said, I'd rather they just leave the series alone.
