Finally! Lucas Gets Something Right

A clip from the upcoming Star Wars movies on Blu-Ray show Lucas finally went and fixed something in the movies that actually needed fixing: That damn lame Yoda puppet (which was inferior to even 1980's Empire Strikes Back Yoda puppet) from The Phantom Menace:

I just noticed that Jake Lloyd enunciates the same way Lucas does

 

Probably was taught how to act by Lucas on the set :emotawesomepm9:

 

this is extremely low on the list of errors.

 

and I think phantom menace is the best prequel.

 

TPM is good for one thing (perhaps two): The Darth Maul battle at the end and the Podracing sequence. Those hold glimmers of the old Lucas magic from the original trilogy, IMO.

QFT.

 

That and the Duel of the Fates theme

I don't even remember how Yoda looked originally in TPM. The whole prequel trilogy was a complete mess and has soured me on Star Wars as a whole. George Lucas was the blind chicken that struck gold with the OT, it probably helped that he had competent directors and writers doing them as well.

I think i will never understand this intense nostalgia for the original films and hatred for the most recent. maybe it is because i wasn't there when it all began...

it has good moments in it, but no it's not really worth watching. As a whole it's a very poorly patched together story and the transition from Annakin to Darth Vadar is far too quick and nonsensical .

There is also one scene in particular that has given birth to more viral memes than any of the other star wars prequels. Just type in google 'vadar' and 'noooooooo' and youll see what i mean, its some hilarious shit during what's supposed to be an emotionally crucial scene in the film.

Was the last Star Wars any good (and by that I mean better than the other two travesties)? I never bothered with it after seeing the first two. Wasn't even curious.

 

It's 'good' in the sense that it's the only movie of the three prequels that actually shows you what you've been waiting for all these years. No one was really interested in knowing about Anakin's mom, his slave master, Qui-Gon, Gungans etc in The Phantom Menace. No one cared about forbidden love or Star Wars gladiator arenas or Count Dooku in Clones. What everyone was waiting for was to watch Anakin go fucking nuts and kill everyone and of course his final transformation into Darth Vader. So yeah, Revenge is good because it finally gives us what we wanted but it's still fucking painful to watch. I don't want to sound like an internet know-it-all movie professor but I'm pretty sure that Revenge really shows us what a terrible director Lucas must be because Natalie Portman is fucking TERRIBLE in this movie and she's usually quite good or at least she CAN be. Am I right? I guess you can also blame the dialogue for being complete shit.

 

But all in all it's not a good movie if you're not into Star Wars.

Well, John Williams' music has never been called into question, has it? Even Lucas messed that up with that 'dance number' he added in Jedi *shudder*, and changing the ending song in Jedi from the awesome "Yub Yub" to that garbage they used.

Refresh your memory, I will, yesssss...

Poorly constructed and realized I am! When CGI capabilities lacking, how bad you look when you create crap puppet!

Yeah, probably.

It's quite sad but I can sum up the cool scenes in each of the prequels very easily:

 

TPM:

  • Podracing sequence (minus of course the idiotic announcer with two heads and Anakin's "It's working!"
  • The final lightsaber duel between Obi Wan, Qui Gon Jinn and Darth Maul

AOTC:

  • The Obi-Wan - Jango Fett battle on Kamino in the rain
  • The asteroid battle between Obi Wan and Slave-I (can't wait to watch this in HD on BD)

ROTS: (how oddly appropriate of an acronym)

  • Grevious - Obi Wan battle on the landing platform (skip all that silly chase crap before it)
  • The transformation of Anakin into Darth Vader (the hospital scenes, minus the "NOOOOOOOOOOO")

Any others I missed? I honestly can't think of any others...

The prequel trilogy had a bunch of plot holes, like when Leia said she remembered her mother as a sad persone, but in the prequel Amidala dies at childbirth.WTF! And the the nonsensical reveal of the clone troopers, ordered by some jedi named Syfodias, who was he and why are we just hearing about it now?!? I always thought the Clone Wars was the Republic fighting against some evil clone army, but it turned out they were the "good" guys. And the whole political aspect of the prequels were completely overbearing. And the great unintentional(?) racial stereotypes.

      Lucasfilm/Disney has revealed the name of the eighth Star Wars movie: The Last Jedi
       
      Before you get up in a tizzy, remember - "Jedi" is both plural and singular, so don't think they are gonna kill Luke off (or... are they?)

      So apologies if this has already been posted, but it's been confirmed that alongside the new episodes in the Star Wars series, there' going to be standalone movies released as well. Could be pretty cool if done properly (a Boba Fett movie would be especially good). Anyway, here's the 411 from Empire:
