|theapportioner||The comic book genre is blatantly sexist - same goes for the movie adaptations. I don't see how Sin City the movie is remarkably different.|

|Immortal Goat||No, there was a scene cut from the movie in which you see Obi Wan talking to Quigon to begin his training on Tatooine. I don't know why it was scrapped, though.|

I just finally saw the movie. Quick review: wasn't expecting much and knew what to expect, so enjoyed myself reasonably. Hayden Christinsensensonsen is still a terrible actor, or to be more kind, he is not nearly ready to carry such a big role. Lucas is still awful at writing dialogue and surrounds himself with foolish yes-men if no one brought that up. He cannot create tension and his in-your-face attempts at making continuity with the old trilogy (which he'll probably have made unrecognizable in another twenty-thirty years) are laughable. His bad scriptwriting brings down the abilities of even the best actors.
That being said, I loved most of the fights, particularly Yoda vs. Palpatine and basically any time Palpatine got into action. I'm no longer that bitchy about Yoda's Mexican jumping bean routine. The Anakin vs. Obi-wan finale felt kind of dull at this point, but holy shit the way he finished Anakin off was awesome. That whole moment would've been fantastically dramatic if Ani hadn't felt the need to shout "I HATE YOU!", but it was still great. All the gruesome detail was, for that matter.
So, I had a good time. Too bad Lucas felt everything had to be resolved at the end, though - I always assumed Vader spent years hunting down the Jedi and killing them one by one, instead of this silly BAM they're all dead stuff.
Lastly, Yoda's mention of Qui-gon at the end - does this mean what I fear it means? That Lucas is going to digitally insert a blue ghost Liam Neeson speaking with Sir Alec Guiness when he rapes the corpse of Episodes 4-6 once more?

I was totally on the edge of my seat expecting Greivous to just fucking slice Obi-Wan into pieces. I knew it wasn't going to happen, but in my heart I truly hoped it would. I mean, fucking, come on! He had FOUR LIGHT SABERS. Fuck the force, man. Who fucking needs the force when you are a monkey footed, 4 armed murderous man-droid? He could have had 6 lightsabers! He has jetboosters! But no force-field. Sigh.
Fucking A! Obi-wan just fucking SHOOTS him? General Greivous, General of the droid army couldn't afford to get some force-fields that the destroyer droids had? I mean, would he even had to pay for one? He was the fucking GENERAL, afterall. You don't think they'd be cheap when it came to giving him state of the art defense system. He was all light saber resistant and shit, but he dies to a some gay ass lazer blasts?
It would have been so cool if they were going at it and all the sudden you hear like, slice, slice, SLICE. And then Greivous starts like, laughing a weezy laugh. And obi-wan fucking just slides apart. Everyone would of been like, what the fuck? And then THE SUPER CRAZIEST PLOT TWIST OF ALL TIME would have been that 4-6 never really exisited. Emperor/Vader/Greivous would have been the coolest evilist galaxy ruling mother fuckers of all time ;(
I wonder if palpatine would have even shut the droid army down if Greivous lived..

She looks like your typical overeducated college women's lib student. She probably tries to argue the talking points she's been taught to argue at every opportunity, and the only 'liberating' change to her character from such a brainwashed education is an intermediary period prior to getting plowed in which her mate will pretend to sympathize with her idiotic rhetoric.
And she will insist to be on top 12% more often.
Immasculating Keychain from Spencer's is optional, but encouraged.

I don't mean to sound like a bitchboy, I mean they're only movies but I'm against movie piracy. It's the reason the price for movie tickets that are so jacked up to a ridiculous amount. Although it would be hypocrite of me to call the motherfuckrs out because I pay half price for movie tickets. I buy my ticket through those touch screen machine thingy and I select senior citizen. Learn the systen, fuck the system, rage agaisnt the machine am I right?
Anyhoo I watched apisode 3 last night. Definitely the darkest one of all. Probably a little disturbing when anakin killed the children but it makes sense to kill off the children in order to prevent future of numorous attempts by good jedis to end the darkside. Also I can't help but think sam jackson is related to yoda cuz they both look damn exactly alike. I had a major boner when vader appeared in his awesome get up suit and shouted nooooo! And the wookie clan was great. All in all I enjoyed it and it cleared up all the questions everyones been pondering since return of jedi. and it ranks up there with the last three episode (new hope-jedi). Really good movie.

If you ask me, he should have just made the 3 without worrying about tying into 4-6, and then remade 4-6 to iron out the inconsistencies (like Street Fighter did when they remade 2 with Alpha 3). It'd mean more money for dickhead and less worrying about tying things together.
I'll miss you, Chewbacca.

While I did dislike the "nooooo" thing at first, and thought it was very Un-Vader of him, I understand why that scene played out like it did.
Think about it, Anakin was a very screamy kid, was he not? How the fuck would a new name and change of clothes change that? The Vader we know and love from the original trilogy hasn't come about yet simply because that was a battle hardened, deeply self-loathing creature. Anakin hadn't been through all that he would be by the time A New Hope happened.
So, in short, stop whining about how Vader is "ruined". He fucking gets there, it just takes time.

I liked it, but it makes me sad to think that movies like these not only compete with actual good movies, but beat them in sales and popularity.
Like how episode 1-3 undoubtedly did better than Peter Jackson's LOTR series, which are a better series in every way and directed by a man with actual talent.

|Rongi||while i enjoyed parts of the movie, i mainly thought it was a turd. the beginning was completely stupid. it was like watching Mad Tv do a parody of star wars. the middle was ok, showing how all the jedis got killed and the chillens gettin diced up ( the fact that the jedi could kill like 20 of those friggen soldiers in aotc but couldnt take on a few was pretty stupid ). and the end was kinda lame, especially the nooooo thing.|

I think the girl in your LJ that thinks that Sin City was sexist is borderline retarded. My girlfriend attended a feminism course in college and brought me home stories of the ridiculous bullshit they push there. It's worse than the church has ever been.
And I'm probably the most feminine guy here aside from Davin, so it isn't my CAPITALIST PATRIARCHAL AGENDA.

Here are my opinions on the movie, from my gay, gay livejournal:

|ScruU2wice||there wouldn't be all that heat then while it was re-entering the atmosphere.|
|May 30th, 2005 12:36 AM|
|Ninjavenom||i was under the impression that it was an upper atmosphere battle.|
|May 29th, 2005 10:01 PM|
|ScruU2wice||plus the space battle wouldn't make any sounds either.|
