No f#cking way!

I'd rather see N'Sync get a cameo.
2003-07-04 06:15:40 PM  
I think I saw this kid once before:

Crap, the Wachowski's are already done with the Matrix sequels. If I could have landed a part in a movie for doing something really stupid on camera, I would have imitated The Matrix.

/Lucas is a d!ck, he deserves to be violated by Chewbacca.
2003-07-04 06:26:46 PM  
I hear this is exactly how Lucas picked Harrison Ford.
2003-07-04 06:42:46 PM  
So we have the short Jedi, the bald Jedi, the ambiguously gay Jedi, the alien Jedi... and now the fat Jedi?
2003-07-04 06:44:11 PM  
I went to the Web site and now I can't get the dork off me.
2003-07-04 06:45:22 PM  

Worse, a CANADIAN Jedi.

2003-07-04 06:45:30 PM  
Lucas Thinking - "We shall name his character Jar-Jar-head he will be the off-spring of the much loved characters Jar-Jar and a bored Jabba."
2003-07-04 06:45:42 PM  
Just another reason why Episode 3 is going to suck more than 2 and 1.
2003-07-04 06:47:40 PM  
Old news. Didn't you guys hear? Ewan McGregor dropped out and Star Wars kid is taking his place. Neat huh.

Starwars kid quoted as saying: "Unlike some other Obi-Wan Kenobis, I can speak with a British accent."
2003-07-04 06:48:50 PM  

2 was better than 1. Less Jar-Jar, no Qui-gon, more sam jackson, more natalie portman skin, yoda kicking ass, etc...
2003-07-04 06:49:02 PM  
He probably threatened George with another lawsuit, since suing him would make no sense like his other lawsuit.

"I am suing you George because you showed a martial arts kata/sequence that people who are impressionable would no doubt have to emulate, and since you are a filmmaker, I would of course be compelled to film it, and since you have a website for your entities, someone would use the internet. I demand 50 billion dollars, or a part in the film.

The first movies were really cool - when I was 12. they were still kinda cool at age 16. Fourteen years later they fall under the "kinda corny but fun to watch" catagory, and then there's lots of sentimental value. To be fair, I guess the new movies would have to be viewed through a kids eyes - Maybe they would be better? Of course, the story, which was new and cool in 1977 is pretty worn out now. Gawd... Even the X-Wing / Tie fighter PC games would have made for a story line for new movies! (oh wait...damn stack overflow errors ;) )
2003-07-04 07:04:39 PM  
As far as I know Lucas doesn't sue over fan flicks that use his characters, as long as they are non-prof. There are like all these people out there, who dress up on weekends and do Starwars stuff in full drag - they film each other doing stuff then stretch it into a fan flick.

George Lucas does not care that you think ep. 1 & 2 suck. he knows you will pay to see ep. 3, whether you think it will suck or not. He knows that when you were a kid and saw Star Wars, that he had sewed it up for the next 20 years, and he didn't care then either. He is such a notoriously shiatty director, that he didn't even direct ep. 5 & 6, because he "had a nervous breakdown" after ep 4. The only movies he has ever made that were worth a shiat were when he was working for fox, and they had the last word on editing. Now he is just a prank, sucking up your cash. It's all about him, not you.

And you are going to make him richer off ep 3, again, in the hopes that for mabye 5 minutes out of 2 1/2 hours, you will see something that gives you the same feeling when you were a kid and saw the whole thing for the first time.
2003-07-04 07:05:19 PM  
Eh, I agree; 2 is better than 1. But that isn't saying much. Still, both 1 and 2 are a mockery to the franchise, which is already pretty much crap (seems the movies get progressively worse).

I don't hate the movies as much as I hate watching them with other people. Specifically at a theatre. Tell me, parents, why do people have the urge to take their 2 months old baby to a 2 and a half hours long movie at night in a packed theatre? Without a bottle or ether rag or gimp gag ball? Makes me want to get up and shake all those kids like a British nanny.
2003-07-04 07:12:19 PM  

Agreed. I saw T3 today, guess what? Crying baby. Same thing for The Matrix Reloaded, The Hulk, (that one was really bad. These parents were letting 3-4 kids run around the theater the whole time), etc... Every single movie I've seen this year has had a crying baby. Except when I went to go see Reloaded on IMAX. That was the shiat (Monica Belucci's boobies are two stories tall. I saw it again just because it was so cool. If you don't want to hear whiney kids go to a movie after it's been in theaters for at least a month.
2003-07-04 07:13:38 PM  
Damn, my grammar is crap today. that's what you get when you don't sleep at all the night before. Just add the closing )

Fark it

Parents that bring a crying baby into T3? Why not sit the little tyke in front of Black Hawk Down. Farkin asshats.
2003-07-04 07:43:02 PM  
I hear he kills Mace Windu.
2003-07-04 07:55:50 PM  
Maybe George should let the kid direct. Would be better than the first two "prequels".
2003-07-04 07:56:51 PM  

I don't remember if there were little kids at Black Hawk Down, but it wouldn;t surprise me. Geez, kids parents these days.
2003-07-04 08:23:32 PM  
there was a kid in the theater when I saw Red Dragon. it boggles the mind
2003-07-04 08:29:25 PM  
yet there wasn't a single kid in the theatre when i went to see Finding Nemo. Im starting to think kids shouldn't be allowed into R movies, even with their parents, because Ive noticed most parents who do don't supervise or tell their kids why its wrong
2003-07-04 09:01:26 PM  
2 is absolutely terrible. whoever that is playing anakin SUCKS. the script SUCKS. he comes across as a bratty, whiny little punk. plus with lines like, 'just being around her is intoxicating'. oh brother.
2003-07-04 09:27:19 PM  
2 is a little better simply because a)the action is actualy fighting, not super-gay pod races and "20,000 leagues under the sea, and b) Yoda going Ginsu was cheesy but fun.
but, "around the survivors a perimeter create" gives it all back. Never a more horrific line in modern movie history.
2003-07-04 09:31:15 PM  
When did Fark start posting stories that even Aint-it-cool-news turns down?
2003-07-04 09:31:28 PM  
Wasn't this video originally posted as a satire of Friars in Dark Age of Camelot? Well that's where I saw it first.. people were calling what moves he was doing :P
2003-07-04 09:38:40 PM  
if only lucas had listened to gary kurtz
2003-07-04 09:41:09 PM  
Dude, we only wear the Spock ears in front of other like-minded nerds.
2003-07-04 09:41:44 PM  
Did he ever get that iPod?
2003-07-04 09:53:42 PM  
Bah... Personally, I did NOT see Episode II. I saw the previews.. I saw a "Behind the Scenes" thing on it... And it did not make me want to watch the movie... and those were the selling points.

When the movie came out, I read the reviews, and it told me EXACTLY what I thought it would be like from the previews, and said "forget it".

I refuse.

I refuse to watch a sequel to crap just because it's popular crap. I refuse to let pop culture dictate what deserves my attention. I read Harry Potter... Then and there, I desided it was not worth a sequel, and that I wouldn't read it again. It's famous now, but my view has not changed. I will, from now on, approach all sequels with the same attitude.

And I hope you do too. If the original was lacking, off, or just all around crappy, don't think it will redeem itself in the sequel. It won't! A sequel has NEVER been better then the original, except a few possible exceptions, and even then, the original was good to begin with. Don't let hack artists in Hollywood lead you into theaters like Sheep. Don't let Legally Blonde 2, Starwars Episode 3, Jurassic Park 4, any such crap, into your sight!

Also, if the original was good, but the current one sucked... Don't see the next one. If you have beloved characters that will appear in it... Remember WHY they are beloved. You can see them again where you first saw them... You don't need to see them standing in a pile of filth, like worn-out hookers, only there to take your money.

Say no! Say no! Say that just because it's popular, does not mean it needs a sequel! Say that some things are best left to the imagination of the viewers. Say that not all holes must be filled, not all strands must be plucked, just to make a sequel, and steal your money!

Say to these hacks "Leave it alone! Don't make a sequel! If you're so good, make something ELSE that I will love! Don't steal from something I already do!"

And when you see Star Wars Kid... poke him in the belly. I wonder if he'll laugh...

Fark It: Problem with Canadians?

A Canadian Jedi would be cool.

Over in the corner smokin' some weed, watching hockey, drinkin' a Timmy's....being really quiet, and then kicking ass when push comes to shove.

sounds like Yoda to me
2003-07-04 10:27:37 PM  
Did anyone here actually read the article?

All it said was that some lady from the make-up department liked the Star Wars kid, and literally, just mentioned, "Star Wars kid in ep. 3?" Lucas probably doesn't even know about this kid, he's too busy batheing in his money pool. He won't be in the 3rd movie. Well, might as well put this here....
Shameless plug in 3...2...1...
2003-07-04 10:28:18 PM  

And if that doesn't work, then screw it.
2003-07-04 11:03:13 PM  
I like my beer cold, my television loud, and my star wars episodes numbered 4,5,6.

I've said it again and again and again:

You'd like the new SW films if you watched them at the same age you first saw the old SW films.

It's an age and perception thing, accept it.

Personal Preference Hierarchy thus far

Episode 6 > Episode 5 > Episode 4 > Episode 1 > Episode 2

Personally, it was hard choosing between episode 4 and 1, I always found episode 4 boarded me to having a head ache 45 minuets into the movie.

I hope episode 3 is better than 2 but dont expect it to be any better than 1.

"A Canadian Jedi would be cool. ... and then kicking ass when push comes to shove."

riiiiiggggghhhhhht, uh-huh, sure, whatever
2003-07-04 11:46:06 PM  
That Star Wars kid thing is so farking stupid anyways. So some fat kid is spinning golf clubs around. Oh I'm just laughing so hard...yawn. Now we have other sites changing it to Matrix themes or "Now we added a different soundtrack to the same stupid video, watch it again!" Lame.
2003-07-05 12:38:46 AM  
maybe he'll get to be an ewok
2003-07-05 01:01:38 AM  
mad props for the The Princess Bride reference!
2003-07-05 01:02:17 AM  
Im an idiot and just brainfarted my Cary Elwes movies

moron moron moron
2003-07-05 01:45:45 AM  
why the hell does anyone care about that kid, i'm sure he's just one of a hundred thousand dorky wannabe kid jedi's out there. Why the hell is he getting so much attention?
2003-07-05 02:37:20 AM  
I've been a spaz almost daily for the past 26 years... but nobody's ever offered me a part in a movie. :(

On a side note, Lucas can fark himself for not releasing the DVD for Episodes 4 through 6. And he can double-fark himself for releasing the DVD for Episode 1 like a week before the network TV broadcast, but almost a year after the VHS release. I'm sorry, there is NO excuse for that other than blatant money whoring.. just as there's no excuse to wait on the release of 4,5, and 6.

It's sad. Lucas is already richer than God, he could piss in a jar and sell it on eBay for several million.. it's obvious he doesn't need the money. And yet, he craps all over his "fans" anyway, knowing that we're all too addicted to his feces to tell him to do with it what we're all thinking. I detest him with a passion that borders on the irrational, but like the good like consumer whore I am, I'll go see Episode 3.. and he knows it. But I won't buy the DVD's for it, or 4,5, and 6. I'll do what I did with Episode 1 and 2 and steal them from my Father. Hah, jokes on you, Lucas!

I also would make it a point to pirate any Lucasarts video game that's released. Shame that Lucasarts hasn't made a non-sucky video game in close to a decade now.. I crave Lucas-Piracy, though there aint any damned thing to pirate. Asshat... he's denying me even this.

kabar: Right actor, wrong movie. You're thinking of Robin Hood: Men in Tights.
2003-07-05 02:50:19 AM  
White Haven, I refuse to fail to give LucasArts the money they will deserve for the upcoming Sam and Max 2.
