Whatevs.  At least I'm consistent.  Maybe I'll go back and use CGI to improve my posts' appearances.  Then I'll go too far and start putting in shit that doesn't belong!

Annakin Skywalker is not a huge fan of it?

What?

Don't you remember that vapid conversation between Padme and Annakin in Attack of the Clones (I think) where she expresses her love of the water and he his distaste for sand?  It was an important scene!

I love how you spell Anakin's first name.  But yes, that line is brilliant.

'I don't like sand, it's coarse and it gets a-everywhere.  But not like here, here everything is soft.'

Which could be the dumbest line in cinematic history and then she kisses him.

I pity the fool!

Wait, wrong black guy.

Don't forget to alter a few key sequences, like changing from "DrThunder88 posted first" to "Svip posted first" so that DT88 is more of a warmhearted softie instead of a badass smuggler escaping from the minion of a ruthless gangster.

^Plus Svip can't hit anything with his post, even though he's at point blank range and his target is immobile.

Stretched that metaphor.

Personally I don't think it's as bad as Anakin's first ever line to Padme - child as he may have been... though I do like how that was lampooned in Knights of the Old Republic II

Atton Rand, upon seeing female Exile* for the first time**:

"Are you an angel...? Oh wait, no, that's horrible - the worst line I've ever used...gah, hope some kid doesn't end up using that...!"


*female Exile is of course now "canon", so suck it, bitches...!
**If you play the game through enough times, additional easter egg content is revealed. But a proper, finished ending is still withheld from you...


If I try and defend some of the dialogue of Anakin then I could say that he's a Jedi, brought up to reject love and whatnot, so he's going to be pretty darn awkward and inexperienced in chatting up girls. I guess.
I suppose the worst thing is that Padme lets him get away with it.

Dialogue is my biggest gripe about the prequels - if it was just refined a bit more, there's nothing really broken about the storyline - well, a few plot-holes aside. And I thought it would have been really great if the CIS were not directly controlled by Sidious, so there's the wonderful moral conflict of the 'bad guys' actually fighting for what would be the best interest of the galaxy - the fall of Palpatine - but the Jedi are too stubborn to see it - until far too late of course.

But anyway.

The other thing I guess is that dashing smugglers and desperate rebellions make for more interesting and rousing stories than whiter-than-white Jedi Knights having to deal with political intrigue. If the political intrigue was done better then it would have made the prequels much stronger. IMO.

Just by the by, I wonder whether the scene with Greedo will be modified one last time so that Han never shoots him, his laser bolt simply rebounds off the wall and kills him.
But until that happens, I guess you could still say "it could be worse..." tongue

Was any part of the child Anakin's first performance not loathsome?  I'm willing to give the slightly older one a bit of credit, not much, but the kid was just awful.  On second thought, the older guy should have known better.  No credit.

As a non superfan, I'm willing to concede that the prequels may have connected a number of disparate canon threads that I'm not familiar with, but it seemed to do it in a way that was ultimately displeasing.  The armchair quarterback in me would say to axe connections to non-film canon and just write better movies though.

i could never get into the expanded universe thing beyond the games and one or two books (IIRC they were all by timothy zahn - one was shadows of the empire. dash or whoever you played in the game was so cool even if he was just basically han solo). i've read about some of it and if i remember correctly it enters some absolutely retarded territory like the empire makes a BIZARRO EVIL LUKE from the DNA in his chopped-off hand and there's a race of space-raptors with guns and there's some super-super weapon that's a death star except it takes out an entire solar system in one shot and like 150 years after the original trilogy ends there's still an empire and stormtroopers (apparently technology never gets any better), so i guess the good guys didn't win in the end and return of the jedi was rebel propaganda?

and ...are you hitler?!

Even cooler for me is the fact that he's voiced by the same guy who went on to voice Canderous Ordo big grin

Quote
i've read about some of it and if i remember correctly it enters some absolutely retarded territory like the empire makes a BIZARRO EVIL LUKE from the DNA in his chopped-off hand...

And they called him Luuke...

I was about to rant about that but discovered that was the decision of Timothy Zahn himself.

Couldn't stand the concept of the Vuuzhan Vong to be honest. Perhaps people recognised that there was too much "Emperor is reborn...but he dies...but he is reborn again...but he dies...but he is reborn again - each time he reappears it's like rising from the grave going "I've got a better idea, I've got a better idea..." before rapidly returning to the grave going "oooh no it's the same idea, it's the same idea, it's the same idea!"[/eddie izzard]
Anyway, yes?
Vuuzhan Vong - maybe the galaxy needed a change, but just reading about them it just seemed they were fecking l33t h4ck3r g0dm0dd3r6. Grr.

Hang a sec...

Lucas should have sorted that out by now with all his fiddling. roll eyes

What's with all the Pepsi and Snoop Dogg?

And no!! The best mistake ever is when that stormtrooper hit's his head on the door. I heard a while back they might replace Episode I Yoda with CGI Yoda. I know they'd never do it for Empire and ROTJ though. But honestly, it should be done for TPM, because that puppet was just...awful.

Well, the Pepsi is for moichandising tie-ins and Snoop Dogg is an even more "urban market" personality than Samuel L. Jackson.  Honestly, I think Dogg would be a better choice for Mace Windu than Jackson was anyway.

^Easily done. We'll just replace Jackson's head with Snoop's. In fact, there'll be a blu-ray application that allows the viewer to replace any actor's head with any other actor's head.

As am I. A lot of it has to do with the ridiculous nearly $90 price tag for the entire saga without tax. That and I'd like to have the films edited AND original for that price and it's not a reality yet.
