It's enjoyable but shit and unneccesary.
I have a feeling this thread will be a late bloomer.
was Jabba's uncle based on Liza Manelli?!
Why was the new padawan given a script akin to an American teen drama bollocks wank shit - and it rubbed off onto Anakin, who started using it?!
Cracked me up when the battle driod went "Whhhhyyyyyyyyyy?!" at a quiet break within a battle :-D
It's Star Wars, but not as we know it...
and the fact that they called him Stinky constantly. Is it supposed to be completely inane and childish in comparison to the original?!
But at the same time it takes itself very seriously.
are supposed to have personalities?!
In Menace, it was more the Roger Roger etc - that's fine, accepting orders and it raises a smile.
however, by the time Sith came out, Lucas had decided to make them really "comcial" and I think that tarnishes the films as a result - they are supposed to be driods that fight and take orders, not the new Laurel and Hardy ;-)
best thing to come out of Star Wars after the original trilogy was the Tartavosky-produced Clone Wars cartoon series. Special forces clone troopers being awesome. Yoda mashing ships into each other using the force. Mace beating robots to pulp with his bare hands. A truly tense chase sequnce with a properly scary General Grievous.
I am at a total loss as to why they went down this route instead.
probably not too qualified to be commenting yet because I haven't actually seen the new film; but it doesn't seem to have any of the flair of the Tartavosky cartoon at all.
I think it worked so well because Samurai Jack was, basically, exactly what you expected of a Jedi. All serenity and calmness before lightning quick strikes. And it managed to be funny without the slightly lame dialogue I'm hearing about; little visual gags that reminded me of the original trilogy.
Still, I'll probably watch it. Somehow.
And added an extra dimension (lol).
But this is going to be followed by the clone wars TV series but i don't know if this will contrast completely with clone wars.
