No comments on the latest Lucas? C'mon, I know at least one of you out there has seen it! ;)

Yeah, OK, I've seen it twice already. :D Saw it last Friday, then read the book over the weekend, then saw it again last night. After reading the book, I realized I must have been sleeping through half of the movie. So . . . . I had to go back and pay attention the 2nd time.
I'm glad I re-watched episodes 4 - 6 last week. I think it helped pick up on some things since those were fresh in my mind.
I have to say I liked Clones better than Phantom Menace. I realized, from the few minutes of screen time that Jar Jar had in Clones, how irritating he really was. The Yoda fight scene was great - and hilarious! The images of Yoda just before, during, and after the fight just crack me up.
I'm really looking forwared to episode 3 now. I just don't know how they can tie up all the loose ends without making a 4 hour movie. Guess I'll have to wait 3 years to find out! :mad:

I saw it as well, and did enjoy it better than Phantom Menace. Overall pretty entertaining. Some horribly cheesy lines even for a Star Wars movie...lol! (My heart is in torment because of the kiss you should have never given me..) Great effects, and the Yoda fight kicks major ass, while being fall out of your seat funny as well (I just bounced all over the place in a Jedi Knight fight, now that it is over I must grab my walking cane again)..lol!
Overall good movie, but don't be expecting anything amazing.

the film was kick arse, but not long enough!
some of the lines were the cheesiest I ever heard...
favourite bit... well that might spoil it, but it does have something to do with Count Dooku and a hand held hologram projection:) Come on, you know what I mean... oh, and the scene where... no can;t mention that!
May 23rd, 2002, 07:33 PM
Oh and what about when they.... and then you have to mention when the....
Those were my favorite parts!

Well, I read the book about three weeks ago (I just couldn't bring myself to wait). As for the film, much better than TPM.
But the dialogue?
Oh my lord. Some of Annakin's lines were straight out of some depressed love-crazed teenager's diaries or something. Actually made me wince.
That unpleasantness aside, Yoda kicked ass big time. The casual way that his lightsabre flew into his hand - very sweet indeed.
As for the hand-held hologram projector - a nicely done trick, worth some fine laughs.

The entire cinema laughed at me when I accidentally said "go on my son!" a littlle bit louder than I meant to, when Yoda revealed his saber before he and Dooku squared off...
Some of the Dialogue was seriously bad, but on the whole, IMHO, Star Wars is back on track (which I am delighted to say after the shock to the systems I received in the wake of TPM).

WOW WOW this makes Phantom Menace look like a distant memory. Totally cool.
(possible spoiler, sorry)
But hey, did everyone hear Liam Neesons voice shouting ANAKIN, ANAKIN ? i know i did smile.gif
roll on episode 3

Improves on second viewing...!

The Phantom Menace didn't do much for me, so I wasn't expecting much when I went to see this. If I had been I think I would've been disappointed but as it is, I was pretty impressed.
There were boring parts, which isn't typical of a Star Wars film, but once those passed, it was pretty cool, IMO.
The ending was pretty surprising to me...the clones and all. I guess that answers a question I had about the title. I was thinking it should've been called "The Clone Wars". Now, it seems that the next one should be so called!
But I still wanna know why Qui Gon didn't disappear when Darth Maul (Mall?) Killed him. And why he doesn't reappear as a ghost like Ben, Yoda and Anikin do later on...?
And did anyone else think Obi Wan was just a little weak in this movie? He lost his light saber (while fighting Fett) and couldn't use the oldest, simplest Jedi skill to retrieve it?! Why is that? And yeah, later he's fighting Dooku, a very powerful Sith, but still...I was hoping for a little more of a fight than that! Anikin too!
And speaking of Jango Fett. He died almost as easily as Boba does later on! I was expecting more out of him as a bad guy. :(
But I think Boba might be pretty cool in Episode III. He looked like he had a score to settle there...

I agree that it improved on the second viewing. I really did miss a lot the first time around. The third viewing, however, got a little boring. There were just too many "moments" with Anakin and Padme.
SPOILERS BELOW . . .
This movie has also given me a boat load of questions. I, too, have been wondering about why some of the Jedi sort of vanish when they are killed and then reappear as ghosts. I wonder if there is a company answer for that or has it been explained in any of the books? I also want to know more about Palpatine. Where did he get his knowledge of the Force? Who was his master? And why exactly is the Jedi council losing their ability to use the Force? I thought the Sith had existed for thousands of years, too. So, why now are they losing that ability? If it weren't for Yoda, the rest of the Jedi wouldn't have had a clue what was going on around them.
And yeah, Jango fought Obi-Wan so well, but Mace Windu vanquished him fairly easily. The same goes for Boba. Han Solo just turns around and inadvertently causes Boba to go blasting into the side of that ship and then he slides down into the big worm thing.
The one plus: Everyone that hated Jar Jar got to see how much of an idiot he really was. I'll just put forward the motion to grant emergency powers to the Chancellor. Yeah, good job, Jar Jar.
Still very anxious to see Episode III!

The only thing I can think of that explains Mace dispatching Jango so easily was the fact that there was more than just the two of them fighting. Somewhat of a "distraction made me lose my head" argument. With Obi-Wan, he was able to concentrate more on the battle.
Remember though - the stormtrtoopers were based on the clone of Jango, just as Boba was. And we see in the classic trilogy that the stormtroopers are easily dispatched, considering.
Obi-Wan not being able to retrieve his lightsaber? Screwup on Lucas' part I figure, much like Jar Jar. :D
