"SHUT THE FUCK UP, young Skywalker."
i like the drawn look better
Right, well what if that poster had the drawn look to it?
If Biggs death was supposed to be important, Luke would have cared
I take back what I said about the Clone Wars, the Gungans just captured General Grievous. What the hell. Also, Jar Jar was the one who amde it happened, his distracted Grevious long enough for one of the Gungan generals to disable the Droid platoon guarding him.
Mine you, it was like 30 Gungans Vs him and they had those Blue ball things from The Phantom Menace.
You really need to see the episode to understand it.
Wow, and now Padme in her ultimate Wisdom traded Grievous for Anakin
How could they apprehend Grievous anyway? He was pretty much designed to be an unstoppable killing machine.
gungans were a terrible addition to be honest
Has anyone seen the deleted footage from the Bluray release (original trilogy only)? Anything cool or interesting?
They're all over Youtube
Was anyone else disappointed that Luke's dark side is basically a 5 year old swinging a stick around?
Luke's "dark side" (which I don't believe should even count as a dark side moment, as he still had the control over his actions. "Once you begin the dark path[or words to that effect], forever will it dominate your destiny" - Yoda.) was powerful enough to amputate Darth Vader, so I'd rethink your statement there.
That Gungan general that zaps Jar Jar (How rude! bit) at the beginning of Episode Sacrificed himself to get point blank to zap him in the face.
There is a lot of Death in the Clone Wars that past 2 seasons. A lot. Some of it graphic.
What I really love about Star Wars is how passionate the fans can be.
You'll be talking about some guy in the background serving Jabba in his palace in Return of the Jedi and you could have a 2 hour conversation about him and his backstory with your friends.
I'm not sure if this was posted here, sorry if I'm late.
My mom just got me a blu-ray from Wal-Mart.
"I WONDER WHAT IT IS! THIS IS MILDLY EXCITING!"
*Star Wars Episodes IV-VI on blu-ray*
I really felt for General Grievous. If you read his backstory, you can see he has a completely justified reason for joining the dark side.
Yeah, but at the same time the way he acted in the movie just made him totally unlikeable.
Watching these movies on blu-ray LOOKS nice, but the changes Lucas made are so fucking distracting that it pulls you out of the magical world it's trying to create. It's kind of sad.
Although I did like the coughing (since I watched the cartoon before Ep3 came out) I still can't help but sit and wonder, to this day, as to why he was such a pussy. I mean in the clone wars he fucking killed jedi left and right (then again it was hinted at that he killed a jedi that you see walking around in 3)
Honestly, I think they should've scrapped Grievous in Episode III and just had Dooku get offed by Obi-Wan on Utapau. Grievous was cool in Clone Wars, but he was just a dork in Episode III.
Now think of this: Obi-Wan has a connection with Dooku in that Dooku taught Obi-Wan's master, Qui-Gon. Anakin is just some random punk that Dooku cut the arm off of. Therefore, I think Obi-Wan killing Dooku would've been much more fitting.
And it still provides a reason for Obi-Wan's absence, and Anakin's fall.
You know what would be awesome? A Criterion Collection of The Original Trilogy. To bad George wouldn't let it happen...
It's not like Grievous went down like a sack of bricks after one kick, almost the entirety of Utapau was spent taking him down (you know, except for the Order 66 scene), with a big chase scene, and a pretty knock-down drag-out saber fight.
Grievous' Coughing in EP3 was because of the Imperfections of the technology.
But then the Cartoon came along at retconned that before the Movie was even in theatres with Mace force gripping him.
I couldn't have taken him down. Think about it, what did he do to try and kill Obi-Wan when he infiltrated their hideout? Lightsabers fucking spinning everywhere. My shit would've been cubes.
You gotta feel for the guy though, his appearance in the movies made him look like a complete dick. If you read his back story you sorta get some sympathy for the guy.
It was stupid stupid stupid to kill Maul. Him and Vader are the most recognizable Dark Side characters going. He should have escaped. We didn't need Dooku OR Grievous. Maul would have been fine. He'd be a great way to exploit obi-wans emotions and open a whole new story arc. Also it gives the villains more punch.
My main gripe with the whole prequels is how crowded and lousy the Dark Side is. Where are all these dick heads coming from? BadGuys'R'Us? Maul just needed to be fleshed out, built upon, and then Anakin robs Obi-Wan of killing him leaving tensions to rise more.
The above poster is correct, could've had an awesome sub-plot with Obi-Wan.
So guys, is Clone Wars worth checking out? Opinions on it? I basically want to learn everything about the "star wars universe" but don't know where to start. I know a shit load about the movies but that's as far as it goes.
