    Phantom Menace wasn't bad. Episode 1 marked the return of Star Wars to theatres, and the first one released in theatres (for my time). There was huge hype and there was SW everywhere. EVERYWHERE! Everywhere you went, and everything you bought could have SW stuff on it! There were even collectable pop cans! REMEMEBER??? If anything, that movie reminded me about how much I liked Star Wars.

    Albeit the movie wasn't the best thing ever, it was definately not a bad movie. Unless you're a hardcore Binks hater like those newspaper comic guys with no wives. I meant to type lives, but I'm keeping that there for humor purposes.

    On the otherhand, Episode II made me want to puke at the part where Padme was all: "since we're going to die now I thought I'd let you know that I truely, deeply, for reals, really, really, incredibly, super duperly, honestly, etc. luv u!"

    oh, and Episode III... did anyone think Anakin turned a little too easily? I was all like: "... what? PANSY!"

    Franjean and Rool substitutes C3PO and R2D2
    and General Kael is the substitute for Darth Vader.

    Ewoks Adventures, LAWL

    I actually saw an episode or two... of the animation! *DOUBLE LAWL*

    I had never seen the Holiday Special. On Patterson's testimony that it makes his eyes bleed, I shall refrain from watching it.

    lol @ padme, that scene seemed a little cheesy, and I definitely agree that Anakin turned a little too easily. My impression of Darth Vader is forever tainted. =\

    Episode III works a lot better if you read the book version by Matthew Stover, or listen to the audiobook version of said book, and ignore the film version, which really isn't all that great.

    I'm not even gonna bash the prequels. I thought they were pretty good, especially III. I happen to have the entire saga on DVD, as well as the prequel novels. I'm currently re-reading Labyrinth of Evil, and it really leads up to ROTS.

    Yeah, I read that it and it was pretty cool. I'm currently reading New Jedi Order: Vector Prime (I've read some of the books in the series, including the ending, but there are huge gaps) and I'm also starting on the second Last of the Jedi book.


    Oh, and they're trying to get us excited again with Star Wars: Clone Wars, a CGI film, coming to theatres soon. It seems like it actually could be pretty good.

    There's no such thing as a bad Star wars spin-off. I'd watch, read, play anything that has either Jedi, Sith or Wookies.

    lovely

    PS-Can't wait for the live action series. ;(

    If they DID make one, I can guarantee that it will suck, but also that it will make in millions of viewers, and give Mr. Lucas even more money.

    Back to the point, I don't really like The Phantom Menace. The pacing was good, as was plot development, but I hated the kid that played Anakin, espescially the "Whopee" line. Also, I don't think it would have been too hard tor Qui Gon to just take his mother as well. Then the WHOLE problem would have been solved.
    And I liked eps II and III, except for the mushy bits, which is like, half the damn movie. But the action scenes were well done and stuff.
    But I'd still rather watch the original trilogy any day.

    So, what's your guarantee? I see no reason why it's going to suck. And it is going to happen, as stated by George Lucas himself.

    I could have gone without the whole prequel business but that's my opinion. IV-VI were the best, VI being my favorite.

    The prequels were problematic in many cases, but have added so much depth to the series. Overall, I'd say the positives of them far outweigh the negatives.


    In other news, I broke down and ordered Legacy of the Force Episode VIII - Revelation off of Amazon today. It was just released today, and I'm pissed off at the library for not even having it on order. I'm with Amazon Prime and it should be arriving either later today or tomorrow.

    They should've kept Darth Maul around longer. For someone so badass, he sure got it handed to him by Renton.

    Yeah and it wouldn't have hurt to have him in a shower scene either, even if it IS Star Wars.
