Count me in. We also must stop him from ever thinking of the character Jar Jar Binks. Notice how he's not in any of the trailers for the 3D version of Episode 1 coming out.

I saw Star Wars in 1977. I enjoyed the hell out of the prequels. But I also kept in mind that George Lucas wasn't making a "Serious Movie" He was making 1930's style serial with better special effects.

If you want something that appeals more to a higher intellect, watch THX1138. One of the best 70's Sci-Fi movie out there.

Anyway, I watch the hard sci-fi stuff too. Who says there isn't room for both? Besides, the first Star Wars films weren't just kids films. War, torture, mild sexual situations, burning people alive, genocide. I know a lot of people who were adults when the original trilogy came out that are still fans. If you think Star Wars is for kids, fine. Spoiler, Soylent Green is people.

At least Star Trek was killed by a guy who admittedly hated Star Trek and thought it was for losers. Star Wars is being killed by its very creator.

As long as this doesn't effect SW:TOR then I'll just ignore it.

Ghastly: At least Star Trek was killed by a guy who admittedly hated Star Trek and thought it was for losers. Star Wars is being killed by its very creator


Star Trek was killed by a series of shiatty TNG movies made by very tired people. It was revived by "Star Wars Only with the Characters from the Original Star Trek: The Movie".

Star Wars never died, no matter how loud the haters are.

Both are alive and well, for good or bad.

FTFA: I am disgusted that people would even think about rebooting the Wars. It's heresy to even speak those words. But there are those out there who think the franchise has muttered its last breath. Apparently, rebooting is not only a good decision for the franchise but it is the ONLY decision for the franchise. I think these people need to be shot in the face. This the best way to reboot Star Wars: YOU farkING DON'T.

Okay, this dude needs to break the prozacs in half next time. I've got a feeling the biggest problem with Star Wars isn't George Lucas, but batshiat crazy fanboys like the author of this story.

Yeah, erasing matte lines and strings and shiat is fine, even preferable. When Spielberg repented for the ET walkie talkie thing, he went in the opposite extreme that he wouldn't even do things like that, which I don't agree with. But Spielberg movies all look fine anyway. They just need to replace the shark in Jaws with CGI. I keed, I keed.

How about we just go back to 1975 and shoot him in the head? Then we won't have dumbass Star Wars fanboys whining about all the changes he made to it.

/Instead, they'd be replaced with dumbass THX-1138 and American Graffiti fans whining about how his true vision was never realized...

James!: Not hate, sadness, disappointment and shame.


I feel none of those things. The original movies are still there and they still entertain me, and while the prequels are for more entertaining to my son than they are to me, I like the parts I like just fine, still think the lightsaber fights are cool, dig the ships, like the world, etc, and don't much care that a franchise that was never much more than badly acted but highly entertaining space opera pulp to begin with continued to be badly acted but slightly less entertaining space opera pulp. They ain't great, and the first two have more bad than good, but none of this stuff was ever Citizen Kane to begin with.

I certainly don't feel sadness, disappointment, or shame that my son and all his friends love Star Wars as much as I did at his age, and without me having to push my own nostalgia on them because they've got their own Star Wars to enjoy.

If I feel sadness, disappointment, or shame about anything, it's that as someone who likes Star Wars I get lumped in with the frothing, perspectiveless idiots who boil themselves into a sea of rage at the mere mention of Lucas' name.

But yeah, I agree with you, there's room for everyone. And if people of all ages enjoyed it, for what it was. My dad didn't like Star Wars, and he was a big time sci-fi fan. But he was in the minority.

We have 2 copies of the '95 trilogy on VHS. 1 unopened and 1 opened. We watched the original RotJ the other day - the one without Hayden Christensen at the end. It was pretty sweet.

Why the hell would you just give that away? I overtly hate too many possessions, but I wouldn't part with that, I still have old paperbacks of sw comic novellas from the early 80's.
 
2012-02-01 09:30:44 PM
just let the Clone Wars cartoon series keep going. with people besides George Lucas writing it, there's actually some interesting stories, the characters aren't all tossers, and the main appeal to me is, we actually get to see Anakin not be a total douche. we actually see him as a hero of the republic, along with Obi-Wan, and the two of them actually being like brothers in arms, instead of anakin getting all pissy at obi-wan every few seconds like we saw in the prequels. Ahsoka bugged me at first, but she's grown on me over time.

My bother took me to see Red Tails last weekend. (OK combat scenes, muddled story and pathetic dialogue... All you've come to expect from Lucasfilm.) The trailer for Phantom Menace 3D came on and the audience reaction was deafening silence.

I'll pay Lucas money for quality work.

He's not getting another dime out of me for any of the prequels. I'll laugh my ass off if Lucas takes a huge hit on the failure of 3D prequels on top of the money he sank into Red Tails.
 
2012-02-01 10:37:47 PM
You know what, I think this would be a great idea. The Star Trek reboot worked because of the alternate reality thing, which is exactly what Star Wars needs, to get out from under the mountain of canon. It would only be as good as the writers and others on the project of course, but if you get the right people doing it, it could be very interesting.

If there's no Vader, then Palpatine perhaps delays his machinations for taking over the Republic, or perhaps continues to use Dooku in place of Anakin. If the fall of the Jedi doesn't happen in the same time frame, are they able to rally/further investigate the "dark threat" and prepare themselves better for the Clone Wars? Or do they continue to grow more self-assured/corrupt and fall harder when the attack eventually comes, perhaps losing Yoda or Obi-Wan? If Luke and Leia aren't around, how does this affect the Rebellion? Does this lead to a stronger Empire that lasts much longer?

Lot of ways you could go with this, it would be interesting to see skilled writers explore it in a TV series.

Don't worry, she's already on the case. Only she's targeting Lucas circa 1980, so that he dies basking in the glory of 'Empire' with no farking Ewoks to start tainting things.

"It's an empty promise, Ben. Full of hopes and wishes, but in the end, it's just ashes and disillusionment. Yes, You can see those who have died, but you can't change what happens to them. And yes, you can see the future-even alter it to a small degree if you're skilled enough-but you can't be sure you're doing the right thing. The very wanting that is prompting you to do this is what's started many down the path to the dark side."

Time travel is already in the Star Wars Universe via the Flow Walking force power that Jacen Solo learned from the Aing-Tii monks.
