Default Re: Star Wars

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.

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.



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.

ITS DARTH MAUL from Star Wars. Do you think I just chose some random tatoo person?
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.

let the fools attack all they want and need to. they will be the ones who hurt their credibility in the process. you just stay calm and centered and balanced. it will drive them even more nuts.

you will always be welcome at the castle. so see you there.

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.

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

the Original Trilogy rules, the prequels are downright pathetic and only Zac Efron would have done it worse than Hayden Christensen as Anakin
