Rick Astley did the Never Gonna Give You Up/Smells Like Teen Spirit mashup LIVE with the Foo Fighters. I am happy about this.

Is <em>Star Wars</em> Your Favorite Movie?
Time

Handman said:

It is not my favorite movie, but definitely the one I’ve spent the most time with.

That’s me too. It’s my favorite place to escape to I guess.
There are several movies I like more than Star Wars, but I’ve never spent any time thinking about being in those “worlds” or creating my own character motivations and histories like I have for Star Wars. That’s probably because I don’t watch too many other “fantasy” movies.

General Star Wars Random Thoughts Thread

Re-posting this from another thread, but looking for any feed back on the idea. It’s been personal canon to me for years, but I’m interested in what others might think.

She was once Beru Skywalker, Anikins sister. She was never trained, but is force sensitive and can see things before they happen. She married Owen Lars who never agreed with such “wizardry”. She stayed behind with Owen while her brother left on an “idealistic crusade” with Obi-Wan.
Watch the films with this in mind and it works just as well as Obi-Wan’s twisting the truth to Luke.
For me, it makes the entire backstory more interesting as both Owen and Beru would be strongly connected to and involved with the plot of the PT. It would give an opportunity for a good female character and much better relationship dynamics.

STAR WARS: EP V &quot;REVISITED EDITION&quot;<strong>ADYWAN</strong> - <strong>AVAILABLE NOW</strong>
Time

Watched this with a small group this afternoon. It went over very well.
After Yoda had been onscreen for a bit, one of my friends said “Am I crazy or is Yoda… real now?” We all had a laugh and my brother said “That’s what’s taken so long. Guy had to go out and find a real Yoda. That’s dedication.” 😃
(Oh, and that AT-AT/AT-ST double kill had the whole room cheering out loud!)

Well, we agree with each other. you can spend your whole life bitching about dumb movies if ya wanna. Your choice. But, why would you?

I do enjoy a good laugh at the PT’s expense. Plinkett’s reviews are a riot, mainly because I agree with all of his points. But I don’t hang out where PT fans gather and preach my PT Hate as if it’s life-saving gospel while belittling anyone who disagrees. There are certainly some here who do just that with the Disney films.

That’s not true at all. I haven’t been crazy about Disney’s Starwars output, but I still have Star Wars.

if they make shitty ones people who want new Star Wars end up with shitty new Star Wars.

That’s true, but I just don’t see why one can’t be happy with what they already like. If they make more of that thing and you don’t like it, no big deal, you still have the ones you love. If they make more and you do like it, then it’s just a nice bonus.
Take what you like, leave what you don’t.
The franchise doesn’t owe you anything.

Star Wars Behind The Magic DVD

I remember this! Really loved it. Great bts info.
Were there cool screensavers on this too? Or was that on somethign else? There was one where jawas would come out and tear your pc screen apart piece by piece, Obi-Wan and Vader dueling across the screen, lightspeed effect…

Video Game Thread

That’s almost an immediate deal breaker for me… Man that’s a bummer. I play Zelda games almost entirely for the atmosphere and music is a big part of that.

It still is. Don’t worry.
It’s more sparse than usual at times, but it’s all used to great effect. Lot’s of callbacks hidden in the melodies. Very organic and “live”. Check out the track list for the full soundtrack on youtube. Tons of music!
There aren’t as many looped melodies, but the music still enhances the mood just as well as any LOZ title. The new approach was surprising, but it works wonderfully. A looped overworld theme just would not work for this game.
It’s not my favorite LOZ soundtrack (that’s a toss up between AOL, ALTTP & SS), but it fit’s this wonderful game like a glove.

Why isn’t it enough to just not watch it if you don’t like it? Why wish it didn’t exist so even those that enjoy it can’t watch it?

Yes! I hate the PT and didn’t care for TFA, but I watched ESB this afternoon and, know what?
I still liked it! Can you imagine?
And guess what else? I didn’t like the PT at all, so I just don’t watch it!
Again, can you even imagine such a thing??
I must be the strangest person.

And Bingo should post more.
And Duracell should use his awesome avatar with him and the lasers and the 3d glasses.
And Ender should send me a new, updated pic to keep in my wallet.

I told you, I don’t have any pictures of my breasts with a breastfeeding child! That’s not what nursing school was about!

Yeah, yeah. You keep sayin’ that…

It would be great if the Obi-Wan movie retconned to make Beru Anikins sister.
This has always made more sense to me.
