Well, give me something taller to suggest then. Though the ESB looks a lot like the buildings of Coruscant, which has a lot of neo 1920's Architecture.

David A: Fett is a man of few words, he'd say something snappy or sinister and then waste him.

Funny fact, Boba Fett was spawned from the EU, he first appeared in one of Threepeo and Artoo's pre- Episode IV adventures followed by the Holiday Special in an animated short.

I know I wouldn't.  In fact, the only reason I'd be interested in reading about Mace Windu's adventures would be to see him meet his end at the hands of the most feared bounty hunter in the galaxy.

This is an absolutly hilarious spoof on Starwars. I thought I would post it here instead of the link thread. Just watch it. It`s hilarious.

Oh, I just remembered!  I watched the scene again, and it's pronounced "Kasheek," not "Kashick."  Maybe you should spend less time battle meditating, Bastila, and more time learning how to pronounce planets correctly.

As I mentioned earlier, I've started reading the X-Wing series again (don't ask why, I really don't know) and my faith in Lucas's sanity has been slightly restored; the history of the Emperor's rise to power in Wedge's Gamble (worst title ever) almost matches what happened in the prequel trilogy, but with a slightly altered sequence.  I don't feel like typing it up, but it's X-Wing: Wedge's Gamble, page 137, last paragraph.

Oh, and Nix: it's called an accent.  Like how New Jerseyans - sorry, Joisians - can't even pronounce the name of their own state.  Bastila, or at least her parents, are from somewhere in the Core (I assume) so they all have pseudo-British accents.

Did anyone notice a Millenium Falcon like craft (or was it the MF herself...hmm) , center right bottom, pulling into the Senate building on the wide establishing shot after the big crash landing with Anakin piloting the 'halved' cruiser. Just before Palatine arrives with his posse of assorted races to meet the Jedi after his rescue, or something like that.

Anyone notice the official site and the movie spell the planet Kashyyyk and says "casheek", but the EU spells it Kashyyk and says "cashick"? I think there is something very deliberate in all of that.

I think I remember seeing a circular ship landing, but not sure if it was the MF. I should've went to see the movie a second time yesterday...

Damn, reading about the Jedi-Sith History is facinating, though the whole Amulet thing with Exar Kunn and Ulric sounded like something from an anime.

I can hear Kreia drone on about it in my head.

From Millennium Falcon at Wikipedia:

In Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, the Falcon had a brief onscreen cameo appearance, but as a brand new, freshly-built state-of-the-art spacecraft. It can be seen in the lower right hand corner of the screen docking at the spaceport as Obi-Wan and Anakin are returning Palpatine to the Senate building on Coruscant.

Have you guys seen MTV Movie Awards 2005 where Jimmy Fallon plays Anikin done a Star Wars Lava spoof with Padme? I thought it was very funny

Fallon is sunbathing on the lava planet from Star Wars as Anakin. He says they got a kick ass deal on the place floating in lava. He asks if she wants a hot beer, and an R2 unit shoots one at him, and he drops it, and say “I just dropped it like it’s hot.” Okay, this is hard to keep track of, but it’s really funny! It’s real scenes with Padme, and Fallon inserting himself in. He goes in for a kiss, and she says “Don’t do this.” and he says “What, no kiss, what am I, chop lava?” he points to the crowd and says “Thank you.” He’s describing how they’ll make a baby crib and points over there. And is choking her, and says he forgot to turn off the Force.

Obi-Wan says to let her go, and he says “Why are you wearing my bathrobe, and you got barbeque sauce on it.” Cut to Obi-Wan saying “You did that yourself.” Fallon says, “You know I never eat BBQ.” And Obi-Wan says “Only a Sith talks in absolutes.” Fallon says, “A sith?” Cuts back to Obi-Wan in repeat footage saying “A Sith.” Fallon “A mumblesith” Obi-Wan “A Sith.” Fallon - “What a terrible lisp you have there. You should do something about it.” Obi-Wan says “I’ll do what I have to do” and pulls out his light saber. Fallon says, “I must warn you, I’m really good at backflips.” Fallon then backflips up and right over Obi-Wan into a pit of lava. He says “Well, I seem to have over shot my mark there. And now I’m on fire.” He then melts, and this scene was just hilarious. I missed most of the jokes because they were just joke after joke, but it was great.

Interesting fact about Vin Diesel (and Star Wars): Star Wars was based on Vin's real life experience in another galaxy. Interestingly there were no Ewoks, droids, starships, jedi, or aliens, but there were lightsabers. Good god were there lightsabers...

Meh - well, yes the points are valid but then again he doesn't like any of the Star Wars so it's not very surprising he's going to pick apart the latest one and bitch about it.

The opinion I care more about is those that actually liked Star Wars, and still found this film disappointing. Or better still, someone who didn't really have any bias at all as he or she walked through the door.

You can pick anything apart. No exception. If an opinion can be had, you can disagree. And you can always find points to differ on. One might say, for instance, that they find The Mars Volta's new album tedious and long-winded. If their taste is towards short songs, then you can't say they're wrong, but you can disagree. And on this subject, with Maddox I disagree.

For some reason I thought it would be his kind of movie, but for some reason he lists the grutiutous violence as a downside. I guess he's going soft.

Yeah, I really didn't see him tanking a movie that involves such gratuitous violence toward innocents.  Either a) he hates everything (true) or b) he considers plot holes and logical gaps in a film a personal insult (also true.)

Ah well, he's not wrong.  Just bitchy.

There's generally two kinds of Maddox articles; serious (ie not funny) and retarded (read: hilarious). This one sort of ranks somewhere in the middle.

Bump!
Man, looking for the NJO series in the public Libraries of the UK is hard, I need the 3rd book!

I've grown to love the NJO, It brought a breath of fresh air to the EU. No more Super Weapons or rogue Imperial Warlords. I like the idea of the Imperial Remnant having teritory and being led by a man who was Thrawn's 2nd in command.


NJO is one of the best EU Books out there, if you have read most of the EU or the good books with Thrawn, Dalaa and the Reborn Emperor then read it now.

I'm looking forward to the next series of these books by the same author coming out next year.
