Yeah she did.... she was "rock hard"-core excited... lol i couldn't stop staring/laughing... seriously now, although i think she's not that bad looking.... the love sequences with her were terrible.... it shows that lucas should focus on the action, and let the ClosetFan handle the ladies bid....

I strongly agree with that suggestion.

11 out of 10 for everything besides the love story.
Yoda vs. Dooku lightsaber bid: FREAKING AWESOME!!!!! three thumbs up.
And, btw...

Au contraire Nixorbo.... that Sammy L. Jackson line, though surely not the best, was certainly not the worst line of the movie..... every sweet-talking line between Hayden and Natalie are. But I liked that line. It gave me rememberances of "Shaft", a TV show that you gotta love...

is it just me, or does yoda's lightsaber fighting remind you of sonic the hedgehog?
I couldn't stop laughing when Yoda started jumping around like a little midget on crack having a sugar trip.
anyway, this movie rocked, better than episode 1 in so many ways, and easily on par with the original trilogy.

Finally saw it today. After all the build-up, it was kinda disappointing. Still, it was better than Episode 1.

About the Cannon, I thought that Star Wars fans agreed that the only cannon was the movies. Lucas showed that he didn't care about the books in the special editions, and in Episode II he even made the scripts non cannon (Lars were Luke's aunt and uncle) I actually like the fact that a lot of the novels make no sense now, most of them were horrible to begin with. Lucas did the right thing most of the novels were just retreads of classic sci-fi stories or just mediocre sci-fi. I honestly do not think that Star Wars needs secret bases surrounded by black holes, or evil intergalactic skeletons.

I was just thinking that if there was one thing Star Wars needed, it was evil intergalactic skeletons.

Attack of the Clones was easily on par with the Old trilogy.  Pure sci-fi/fantasy gold.  The script was not all that, nor the acting.  But the same was true for the originals.  Star Wars is about the music, the action, the imagination, and the incredible worlds Lucas can create on screen.

Fantastic movie, I can't wait to see it again.

Yay! I made it over three weeks without still watching Episode II! Well, it's not to say I'm proud of that feat, but I hardly had the opportunity to meet with my friends lately. I don't like watching movies alone.

Another problem with Episode I: that annoying little bitch kid! I swear.... he pissed me off soooooo much....
Another problem: Jar Jar.... SHOOT ME NOW!!!!!

Bottom line: Episode I was too disney and made for little kids and teeny-bopper girls that like to go "oh... how cute!"
Episode II tried to be too serious and wound up with bad acting in critical scenes. but good special effects all around.

Great line:

I wonder if Lucas did that on purpose.  laff

I love how Yoda force-grabs his cane and goes back to his normal old self. My friend was like "what the hell, is he faking it?".

Yoda now reminds me of George Costanza from Seinfeld, where he fakes being handicapped. He even has an electronic scooter to get himself around.

I remember an old-school Lucas interview, when he was talking about how the prequel trilogy's storyline was "too serious", and he'd have to figure out a way to "make it funnier". Sadly, Jar Jar was his answer.

But oh well. The goofy stuff was toned down, but I wouldn't call Episode II too serious...it still had a good amount of comedy. Obi-Wan had some cool lines, and Nute Gunray was just awesome.

[side-note...in the original storyboards for the arena fight, Jango accidentally torches Nute with his flamethrower. That sounds hilarious...too bad it got cut from the final film]

I think he used force powers to aid the movement of his arthritic old body. But using them all the time would either be too taxing of a frivolous waste of force powers.

Ahem, can we get a 1024 x 768 of this please?
Anyone?

Heheh, I'm just kiddin' (psst, e-mail it to me round back in 5 minutes)

I saw it about two weeks ago, but I've only been here that long (at PEEL you fool, not on Earth!) and I frickin loved it too, I love all of them, I think critics will obviosly be critics and do what they do. Anyone can be a critic, not many people can make a Saga of such magnitude, go George, go!

I thought the bit when Shmi dies in Anakins arms was well done, that boy looked pissed!!

Here's one thought: I wonder did Anakin know, even with all his mediclorines (assumption of spelling) that he, The Chosen One, the One who would bring balance to The Force, who undoubtedly could foresee things as all great Jedi's could, would be sooooo stupid as to not stick on a condom and not have the twins that contributed to his downfall.
Like, d'oh. Nice one.

Well, I'm off to play Jedi Knight II, Outcast to use Vader Grip and Emporer Lightning on some mediclorinely challenged Stormtroopers, oh yes, and my red dismembering, cauterizing, lightsaber.  evil laugh

That's a strange thing about me and JKII - I love sabering Reborn and aliens, but not Stormtroopers and Officers.  confused
I merely have to blast them instead.

Went to see the movie a second time Friday. The romance-scenes grates even more. I think the good Mr. Lucas should have left that part of the script to someone else.

Obi-wan's storyline was much better.  And the final battle between Jedi's and battle droids still kick ass. It's nice to see Jedi's do some mass-fighting. And Yoda still rules.

I just wished they'd included some space battles between Federation starships (he-he) and the capital ships of the clone army.

I just hack them all up.  It's great, esp after you put in the cheat code for additional dismemberment.

Yeah, once you get the lightsaber, most of the other weapons become obsolete cept maybe the rocket launcher.

You should try get the secret map called 'pit', bind some Reborn's to some keys so they spawn when you press em, crank up the force powers and the dismemberment and have a one against 8 mill up!!
Those orange Reborns are easy, green ones are little bastards and those feckin shadowtroopers are tricky too.

Yes--I'm a nerd and I found it highly offensive. Maybe Triumph should do something constructive with his life instead of making fun of others!

Oh I sware by ultradismemberment - If a particular bastard has really annoyed me, I make it a nessesity to chop him into little bits (literaly) and scatter him over a large area.
But not with Imperials - I guess I'm too Imperial at heart.

I have never seen Triumph the dog, can someone please explain???

Triumph The Insult Dog is a puppet that appears on The Conan O'Brien Show to condemn interviewees. Somewhere around here, someone linked a big, long clip in which he nailed a whole slew of Attack of the Clones geeks waiting in line. I will try to find it, and see if it's still good.

Edit: FOUND IT! Originally posted by BlackCoke in the closed "Test-sicles (AKA Inane Babble)" thread. Return of the Dorks. Right-click the link and save it to disk! It's very long and gutbustingly funny.

I have no incentive to see that clip. I'm a nerd, and why would I want to bust my own guts?

Nah, seriously it's a very funny clip. I recommend it, unless you're unable to laugh at yourself. In that case you'll probably be as offended as ever in your life.

Back o-t: In hindsight, the more I think about the more I dislike most Anakin related in this movie. The romance-scenes still creep along, cliche ridden and all, and Anakin just comes across as a spoilt brat, upset because he have to play by the same rules as everybody else. It's essential to the plot (ie turning Anakin to the Dark Side, but still...), and whether it's the actor or the story I can't say.

In contrast Obi-Wan's part of the movie improves with each viewing. I like his calm, and confident approach to things. Thorough and determined, he continues to unravel the mystery, until he uncovers the truth.

And the fight between the Jedi and the battle droids still rock. Great battle sequence.

Don't confuse not caring with not knowing!

After watching that clip, I can no longer call myself a true geek.  I am ashamed.  I am a worthless geek wannabe.  I must atone myself by watching all 5 movies back-to-back (including the pirated crappily recorded Ep2) while wearing a Jedi costume...

My personal opinion is that the Leia/Han relationship was just SO much better done.
Thoughts?


Oh and I'll look at that video a bit later.
