Angel of Death
I think that this is part of the problem with the whole Star Wars thing.
Is it a kids movie, or is it a PG action adventure movie?
In the last flick, the hero slaughtered a whole band of sand people, and then eventually got his hand chopped off. I bet the 5 year olds loved it! Good family fun.
I believe that Lucas is trying to have his cake and eat it too. Those strong elements were in the story, but they mostly happen off-screen. When i saw Episode 2, i didn't even notice that Aniken had lost his hand until the end scene where he has the robotic hand. I was like -- "huh? When did that happen?" I blinked during the one milisecond of screen time where his hand was cut off.
That being said, I do think that Darth Spud looks pretty darn cute.
Maybe I should look into having a Dawn potato made...?
Some people will always find something to bitch and debate about. Imo, it just shows their lack of substance. There are so many REAL and controversial things going on right now, yet they're yapping away about toys._Kitana_ said:Wondering what your guys thoughts are?

Also, try googling for the whole "anti Spongebob" thing, because he's supposedly gay.
Most Americans really are dumb.
junglizm said:Star Wars is a great saga, I've always been a fan. I do agree that the newer movies are kind of retarded, but I'm not going to whine over it being a PG action movie vs. a kids movie. It's just Star Wars; take it or leave it. Seriously, who cares that much? I will still pay to see any Star Wars movie released. I don't think it's "lost it's hold" so to speak, more than trying to both tell the original story, while meeting the new fan's expectations. I mean a movie created today with out pretty CG effects would be a total loss. At least in most people's opinion. Maybe in that way the new ones are a little different from the original movies, but what do you expect.
I think it was brilliant to release the movies in the order that Lucas did. He ensured his prequels to be hits, even if they're largely seen as "not as good" as the first. Most people lose interest after the second sequel, but finding out the back story is a lot more interesting.
I didn't misunderstand anything in the last movie either, I'm not sure what he's talking about.
