Darth_Lukecash: Jim from Saint Paul: MayContainHorseGluten: Mugato: albatros183: Also Starwars as a thing has been dead for 12 years

Wow, you could have let Disney know that earlier.

Just because someone bought the corpse, doesn't make it not dead.

/once Star Wars fandom became the religion of "cool" geeks it was dead
//"you said a quote from Star Wars! You funny!" --entire plot of every episode of Big Bang Theory

Episode 3 cost around $200 million to make and made 900+ million dollars worldwide. Not includig merchandise.

I am not suggesting that the quality of the story was indicitave of this. I am suggesting that 9 years into the internet sobbin buckets of tears it STILL made shiattons of money. "Dead" is an operative term.

Jimmy my lad, let them be. They have their nerd rage.  It keeps keeps them warm


I think that they must be Simon Pegg or Edgar Wright.

You'd think someone shat in their mouths the way they carry on about the prequel trilogy. I love those guys, but the prequel hate is just overdone at this point.

It actually reminds me of the butthurt projected by the old-school Star Trek fans when the Next Generation first came around. They whined and moaned about how it was all "pussified" and that it was made for kids because they had Wesley Crusher on the show, and they just wouldn't let it go. They biatched about it for a while, and then slowly got on board... Although there are a few holdouts who still hate on anything after TOS.

And then, to pile on top of that, the new Trek series pissed off both the TOS holdouts AND the Next-Gen fans.

Some people just have SO much nostalgia for a particular series that they can't ever accept it if it doesn't live up to the fantasies they had when they were younger. It's like introducing a new facet of an old religion to the congregation. Some of them wade in and enjoy it, some of them resist hard but eventually give in, and some of them scream and wail "BLASPHEMY!!!" until their dying day.

Star Wars is a fantasy world. It's not going away any time soon. Whether or not individuals choose to ignore anything after _____ is entirely up to them, but their denial doesn't make the existence any less real.

kkinnison: Is it me or does the clone wars seem rather random and have no point or continuity to the battles?

It is it just showing the futility of interstellar warfare?


oh don't talk sense here.

these chumps will watch any kinda space porn and defend it until their eyeteeth fall out from ass clenching...

fano, mugato etc...

Star Trak Wars sucks...they can't deal.

fat people with light sabers etc...

uh yeah, it's already failed. it's scrambling. Disney "might" fix it but...to quote Darth Skywalker of the Ewok nation, "It's dead Jack"..

no wait..he's dead Jeff....no wait...

Me? What did I do? I'm not defending anything. I've never even seen the Clone Wars. I just said making the statement "Star Wars is DEAD" is farking retarded. You can say "Star Wars has sucked for 12 years" but it's anything but dead.

jonny_q: rewind2846: she was murdered right in front of Anakin and Obi-Wan by General Grievous with her own lightsaber... put it right through her from behind.
That scene never made it to SWIII, but it's in the dvd extras.

You're apparently the only one on the whole internet that knows this.


It was actually kinda news when the decision happened. The actress who played her shot for playboy or some such and Lucas removed her scenes because he didn't want to have a major scene involving an actress who had done porn. Kinda disappointing. Met the actress at a Con and she was all excited about her death scene

Nope. I'm wrong. Different actress cut from ep3.

My bad.

You were thinking about Bai Ling, and her scene was cut because Lucas wanted to focus on Anakin Story. And you are confusing it with the myth from Star Trek next generation and Denise Crosby. She quit the show because she didn't think it was going anywhere, and then some old Photos showed up in playboy...leading people to believe that she was fired from the show.

Barricaded Gunman: Tax Boy: looks like she's found other work

I'd buy that in a heartbeat. Ahsoka Tano is the hottest thing in the SW universe.


Dude, she's 15 yarrons.

Where's pedo-ewok?

Darth_Lukecash: He wasn't wasted.  Darth Mall was supposed to be nothing more that a mad dog Sith. One dimensional, perhaps, but that's what his role was supposed to be.


The single reason Maul appears then quickly goes splat is the rule of cool:  Maul was cooler than Anakin.  Anakin's the star of the story so Maul's screen time is heavily curtailed and his death ignominious (he was handing those two their asses quite easily until the script said otherwise).

Hell Maul shouldn't of looked surprise at the end, he was killed in an unbridled act of passion by a person ruled by anger... and hatred.   He should of sensed what was happening on the otherside of that shield from a mile away.

Which would of made a nice sub-plot to the other two movies:  Obi-Wan's redemption.

What an idiot. At least Shelly Long hung around Cheers for 5 or 6 seasons or whatever it was. TNG sucked all around the first season.

Yes, I was thinking Bai Ling, no I was not confusing it with Denise Crosby (I'm a bigger Trek fan that SW fan).

Bai Ling claimed it was because of her posing nude with a lightsaber in the "star wars" edition of Playboy. IMHO, that would have been perfectly reasonable excuse to cut her out. Lucas claimed it was ridiculous, since cutting the scene also meant cutting out his kids... which seems like a weak argument.

Ultimately we'll never know the real reason, but at the time the playboy = cut from ep3 was being reported as fact.

Sure, but that assumes Lucas isn't a hack that can't see interesting plot points if they can't be covered in CGI

I'll take some of that action but stay with me a bit as this isn't just nerd rage splurging.

The prequel movies, whilst for their time CGI tour de forces (and IMHO show the limitations of CGI vs practical effects) aren't that well put together.   In the first three they trot off to save Han Solo for example.  In reality he's an extraneous person and the rebels would still be just as effective without him, they go get him because Leia and Luke want too; that's the single reason they do it.   There is little to nothing similar in the prequels.

The first 2 - 3 seasons of TNG are junk, they show what the original Trek would of been like had Roddenberry had the budget and industry clout to do exactly what he'd wanted back in the 60's.   The show really picked up steam after he'd died, kinda sad really but there you are.

VOY:  Has some good and interesting episodes however it's a demonstration of why you need a writers bible for shows because it can't remember its own bullshiat from one week to the next.  The downside of which is it presents Janeway as being utterly incompetent and mentally disturbed in quite dangerous ways.   One week she's fearless leader, next week she's apparently been locking in her cabin for 3 weeks solid due to being moody.

DS9: Very hit & miss until they DO make a show bible and start the whole Dominion war long story arc off.

ENT:  Perhaps not as bad as people make out but the ship is both too advanced (it IS a reused and slightly tweaked CGI model from First Contact after all) and way too primitive in places it shouldn't be.   It also portrays the Vulcan's in a very odd way, they held humanity back for the single reason that we scared the piss out of them; they bury their emotions we embrace them but temper them with logic.  We're what the Vulcan's should of been in effect.

Weasley:  I'm not saying that Wil is a virtuoso actor but other things he was in before and after that do show he has a reasonable ability to act.   The reason Weasley is so damn irritating is that's what the script said and the director(s) wanted... so I throw that disaster at their feet not Wil's.

Any more for any more?

Actually, that was how Obi Wan got thrown into that pit, he lost control because of his anger. It was only after he got his shiat together that he was able to jump out and defeat Maul. That was what he was surprised about.

JRaynor: Sure, but that assumes Lucas isn't a hack that can't see interesting plot points if they can't be covered in CGI


If Anakin had started off in the first film just slightly younger than he was in the Clone Wars cartoon (i.e. still young enough that his passions and desires aren't fully tempered by wisdom) hows this for a plot:  Saving his master is what causes Anakin's fall, that's why Obi-Wan is a broken old man on Tatooine.   It's ALL his fault and his alone.

Now if Lucas wasn't quite the hack who believes his own hype, that's some instant classic material right there.

Mugato: Actually, that was how Obi Wan got thrown into that pit, he lost control because of his anger. It was only after he got his shiat together that he was able to jump out and defeat Maul. That was what he was surprised about.


Jedi goes in, a Sith leaps out.  Obi-Wan as portrayed right then is not in control of his emotions.  He's angry, he's scared, he's passionate and he wants revenge for the death of his friend and master.  The camera even pans to show his face during the strike that kills Maul, he doesn't look very calm and collected when he does it.

Would of been simple to CGI his eyes as being yellow and then fade back to normal.

That works perfectly though. The Federation may be a number of different species and planets, at the end of the day it's run from a human home world and humans are generally considered the first among equals. How could that happen if the Vulcans truly were the "better" species?
