buntz: Confabulat: Pod racing!

I will grant you people have heard of Pod racing but if you just showed the average person a picture of a pod racer out of context, I bet you, say, 6 out of 10 wouldn't know what it's from.

I would be willing to bet 9 out of 10 would recognize a tie fighter.


False.  Children would definitely be able to tell you all about pod racers.  You do realize he made the films for children, right?

Yeah but the children in 1999 when that movie came out have probably graduated college by now, and you haven't seen a lot of pod racers adorning any dorm rooms, have you?

GAME, SET, MATCH.

Did the prequels in ANY way define the lives of the kids that saw them? NOPE! It was just another generic CGI action adventure for them.

secularsage: Confabulat: fastbow: I'll give it a shot, but if it's nothing but a big Jedi circle-jerk, I'm out.

Yeah, Jedi are cool, but so are the normal people. What's wrong with watching Wedge Antilles go toe-to-toe with Soontir Fel? What's wrong with watching Han Solo try to figure out his place between freedom and responsibility? What's wrong with epic combat led by the normal extraordinary instead of the most perfect people in existence?

The article says it takes place shortly before Episode IV, so there's no Jedi to follow except maybe watching Obi-Wan putter around his desert garden or something.

You sound like someone who's never read the extended universe books and learned that there are Jedi hiding on pretty much every freaking planet the main characters will ever visit, period. (I haven't read those books since I was in high school 15 years ago, but I've heard they only got worse from even then.)

The one good thing about Episodes VII, VIII and IX is that they will nullify the garbage from the EU. The bad thing is that they probably won't be much better.


Apparently some assholes didn't get the memo. I already made a post pointing out that the old West End Games Star Wars did it best, by ensuring there were no force sensitive characters as strong as Luke/Vader/Emperor/Yoda.

The prequel trilogy made about as much of a popular impact as the Young Indiana Jones Adventures, which was better. Come to think of it, the newer generation of SW fans will come from the Clone Wars CARTOONS, not the newer movies.
