Holiday Special vs. PT

Author

I don't know why Lucas hates the Special so much. Creatively, I think it's on par with the prequels, not to mention with better actors. I'd gaurantee if Lucas were allowed to throw some CGI bullshit on it, he'd have it on the shelves before 2005.

LOL It's true that Harrison Ford's performance in the Holiday Special tops any acting in the PT's. And who can forget that precious little wookie Lumpy? The scene where he picks up his decapitated stuffed animal and puts it gently on the bed is a real tear jerker!

I'd rather have a month of consecutive Life Days than another hour of Hayden trying to woo Amidala.

Hey Jimbo. That statement you just made is another example of how insane you are. You sound like you are under alien control of something.

I'm not gonna bash you for liking AotC, Jimbo. One of my absolute favorite films is Human Nature, but just about everyone else who saw it, hated it.

That is just Jimbo. I think it has more to do with Natilii Portman than anything that traditionally makes a movie good, though.


Is it true that Chewbacca's son is named Lumpawaruump?? I read that in a novel and almost laughed out loud.

Its true that I have the hots for Natalie Portman it is more on the lines that the movie combines action and storyline together better then any movie I have ever seen.

Jimbo, I would be interested to see what you have in your collection. Maybe not so much for "insight" purposes, but just out of curiosity. Cool to see what makes a person tick. Find any of Gundark's posts and click on the "My DVD Collection" link in his signature file. There's a website with a program you can download to set up a DVD profile. Actually, DVD Profile may be the name of the site. Not sure. Check it out and post your list. I've been thinking about doing it too but I have nearly 200 DVDs and not enough time in a day. Maybe when I finish my two classes that I'm currently taking.

Just gotta find a way for the Profile program to allow me to list my bootlegs of the SW OT...

Not true. You have the "enhanced" versions, not the true ones. Even TPM and AOTC are different from their original form. All SW movies would mean the original theatrical release, video versions, SE, DVD and so on and so forth. Lies!

Hmmm...Pixar, Disney, and Roger Rabbit. Considering AOTC isn't altogether different than any of these, I can see why you have such a fondness for it, Jimbo. Not busting balls, just an observation.

Anyone who would buy the DVD over a few frames is stupid. Who Censored Roger Rabbit. Who Frammed Roger Rabbit is a masterpeice. Its hilarious, intellegent and technology brilliant. I love that movie. Don't even try to compare the effects in Attack of the Clones to Roger Rabbit. That would be some fucked up shit.

I live in Rhode Island...Dumb and Dumber began here. That big blue bug and skyline seen near the beginning of the film when Harry and Lloyd begin their trip is about 10 minutes from here. Beat that, Jimbo.
