So, he will think he is really helping but really be more of a nuisance in that area. Then he will cheer as if his efforts meant something, while those who actually made it succeed look at him like an idiot?

Technically it was already going by then, the movie picks up during the Rebellion...

Jar Jar was the sucker that put to Emergency Powers motion to the Senate. So, in effect he did help out the Rebellion to flourish by CREATING THE FARKING EMPIRE IN THE FIRST PLACE.

Barely, instead you get to see some whiny rage wuss fling planets around w/ his pinky fingers. I admit, some of the combo gameplay was pretty good, though.

You dont get to be apart of it.. Just get to see it being formed. It is nice to know some back story in the 18 years in the middle. And yes, Starkiller was just a whiny kid in TFU2. Almost as bad as Anakin whining about Padme.

Jar jar was the senator that actually pushed for palpatine to get emergency powers in episode 3. not a lot of help when he created that empire...

Technically, the Rebellion was formed from a merging of Mon Mothma's 'Chandrilla house' Senators & supporters, and the remnants of the Separatist movement. So yes, part of the Rebellion was already active in Episodes 2 & 3

I check in with "Half in the Bag" starring Dumpy and Neckbeard every so often because the reviews are genuinely funny but Jesus, with their George Lucas obsession. And it's not like their skits are funny or anything. They just have some sort of hatred of George Lucas but can't stop talking about/portraying him.

It's been 7 years since the last prequel, move the fark on.

Only if you view the Extended Universe as canon, which is a little fuzzy. In the case of Star Wars I tend to view the extended universe as a separate continuity from the movies. Sort of like how there are several independent versions of the Marvel Universe, such as the Ultimates or the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

But then we just have the question of how did the rebellion form in the first place? The movies don't actually firmly establish this, although a series of deleted scenes from Episode 3 point to it being spawned from a group of officially loyalist senators who were disturbed by the growing power of then-Chancellor Palpatine. Basically it was a rebellion against the very idea of an Empire.

Yeah like I said, I like their reviews and they pretty much sound like my friends and I when we bullshiat about movies, only they're making money off of it. But it's like Lucas raped their mothers or something.

TFA: So who will end up with the coveted gig? While no name has been officially announced, the "Star Wars" rumor-mill has certainly been buzzing, with helmers including Colin Trevorrow, Matthew Vaughn, Brad Bird, and Jon Favreau named as potential contenders (though some, including Bird, have already pooh-poohed the talk surrounding their possible involvement).

They can pooh-pooh the rumor mill all that want, as long as they're not poo-pooing all over the franchise itself.

he's been grousing about retiring and making odd little vanity movies in his backyard for decades. he's done a lot of crossover work with disney in the past few years and i imagine they've treated him like a prince. they've done a nice job with marvel and the muppets, which indicates they wouldn't crap all over the franchise (lucas may not be competant enough to do it himself, but i think he still cares about star wars.) And of course there is the boatload of money, which lucas can then pump into his charity works that he likes to fuss with. and yes, people are constantly harping on the guy. now that he's sold star wars, he probably can relax for the first time in decades. i imagine some combo of those various factors lead to the sale

You just had to go and use the C-word, didn't you? Are you TRYING to invoke a Star Wars Canon War? What will you toss out next, that The Clone Wars is higher canon than anything Karen Traviss ever wrote?

Actually, do that, because I love seeing fans of that hack go all rage face.

[not sure if serious.jpg]


The movie "The Muppets" was absolutely fabulous. I saw it last year in the theater and loved it. I've also just watched it a couple of times and laughed harder the 2nd time through than the first. It's one of those good comedies that gets funnier every time because you see all the extra things they're doing as a parody of the genre... which, of course, the Muppets were in the first place.

Dear gods on Dagobah, make Lucas put down the script and back away slowly. He is the core cause of damage to the series since the Ewoks.

A thing which parodies itself isn't funny, and it isn't "doing a nice job" with the material.

It's sad. It was a painfully bad movie that used nostalgia to blind people my age and older to that fact and ironic-faux nostalgia to blind the hipster set.

I'm so glad I'm not one of those people who can't enjoy anything.

It wasn't parodying itself, it was parodying the genre of "the musical". The Muppets were a parody of "the variety show".

Whatever, you didn't like it because you don't like musicals, or variety shows... that's fine. But don't pretend you ever liked the Muppets, or would like them if they were on TV today. You wouldn't because parodying a "variety show" in this day and age makes NO sense. I suppose they should have parodied reality TV? UGH.... *shudder*

you attempt to pass your wisdom on by saying "move the fark on" yet you don't seem to follow that simple advice yourself ...and in terms of someone being "obsessed" with this kinda tripe, you and three or four others seem obsessed on nerdsterbating each other in the "what if" scenarios...

I kinda liked the prequels (except part 1) but they could have been so much better. I'm looking forward to these movies, but in the case of Lucas, it'll be odd in a sense that he wont have final say anymore or even much input. Star Wars after all was his and it grew with him (for better or worse) as an artist, so it does lose something in that's it no longer ultimately his.

Bah. I just hope they're entertaining. And now at least the actors should actually be encouraged to act.

I only watch the ones filmed in black and white. And then I sit with my back turned to the screen, because I am above this art form entirely.

Having played The Force Unleashed... I gotta say I'd like to see that plot adapted to make Star Wars 3.5 or something. It was far better than the prequels, though a fair amount would have to be chopped out to make a good movie.
