i think that the word "masterpiece" shouldn't be used that often. if every movie is a masterpiece then what's so special?

I didn't see all of the SW Holiday Special when it first aired. I was six and my whole life was Star Wars, so either something must have come up, or even I realized how bad it was. I'm not sure which.

I've been painfully watching it here and there this week. Forget the cartoon, I think the single best sequence is learning that Chewbacca's dad is into Wookiee porn.

God this movie sounds bad. Still I would be interested in seeing it for the sake its Star Wars and I have never seen it. Still people comparing this ovious disaster with Attack of the Clones should be a sin. Wookie porn you got to be making that up.

I just saw the Boba cartoon. My opinion is it is definutly no masterpeice. The animation is crude and much of the dialog is lame. It isn't that bad it has a couple cool points and it is interesting to see Bobas intro into the series. Overall this cartoon is alright but since most people believe it is the best of the holiday special I don't have hope for the rest of it. I still have intrest in seeing the whole thing but I am not going to look hard to find a mess.

I always thought those who said Return of the Jedi was better then Attack of the Clones was pretty dumb. But you seriously think that a movie so bad it wasn't allowed to be shown again is better then my favorite movie. Your either joking or out of your mind.

Nope. I guess it wasn't wookiee porn, though. He's a wookie into erotic holovisions of humans. I should clarify that point. Any way you look at it, Itchy is a perv. And he even watched his holovision in front of others.

Art Carney is is porn dealer, by the way. Sick. Truly sick.

It's not my fault your favorite movie has the worst acting in any movie in recent history and is just boring as heck. The Holiday Special is actually entertaining and funny, even when not intentional. AOTC is just boring and occasionally goofy.

Why would a species that supposedly has a reputation for ripping arms off have holiday called Life Day?

Can they rip their own arms off? I bet the schizophrenic wookies do.

You'll wish you could when you watch SW-THS.

The first time, but after a while it wears you down either that or there is hidden substance in the special.

To praphrase Andrew Dice Clay from 'The Advetures Of Ford Fairlane'- "Watching the Holiday Special was like masturbating with a cheese grater: slightly amusing, but mostly painful."
"The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country." - Goering.

"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it." - Goebbels.

"In times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act." - Orwell.
