See something, tell a mod. The report button only sends a message to Jay, AFAIK.

Let’s have some objectivity here. Frink called the guy an asshole first. If anyone should be banned here it is Frink.

While Ghibili did make a provocation after he was being directly insulted, the provocation did not directly go against the forum rules.

I called him an asshole first? For no reason? I just picked him at random out of the user group?

Comparing a poorly made Han figure to someone with Down syndrome makes him an asshole, and his subsequent behavior (including his sock that is now posting similarly) proved me right.

If you have an objective timeline that differs, please present it, otherwise shut up.

A peculiar opinion of some person does not give you the right to directly insult that person by name calling.

Similarily, in these forums framework, it does not give you the right to break forum rules. If you think someone is breaking to rules you should report him.

A peculiar opinion? Oh ok.

I did report him. If you think I’m breaking the rules feel free to report me. I think the mods are willing to give me a little rope given my personal situation and the offensiveness of his posts. He’s the one who’s been banned.

Mods have seemingly been ignoring your regular forum rules breaking (off-topic posting, disrespectful behaviour, name calling, etc.) as far back as I can remember.

So report the mods then.

Heh, thanks for that latest LOL!

You seem to be getting a bit of negativity from a few here TV’s Frink, and I can only guess that the majority of them have been on the wrong end of your funny bone in the past. As far as I’m concerned, long may your funny bone continue when it’s required…as we need all the humour we can get around here at times.

As far as the topic’s original question goes, I’ve been tweaking my own intended cut-list for AOTC recently, and one of the worst aspects of that movie for me was definately the unconvincing moments/dialogue between Anakin and Padme during the build-up in their ‘romance’ over the course of the movie. Just dreadful, and it took a bit of effort to get it to the point where it became reasonably convincing for myself - which involved totally removing quite a lot of their footage together, of course.

For me, the prequels as a whole (especially AOTC) were also disappointing due to the awkward relationship between Anakin and Obi-wan is concerned too, as that ended up giving me a whole other set of scenes/and dialogue that I had to alter for myself, into something I liked better.

Like others, there’s a whole heap of other stuff throughout the prequels that I ended up altering or totally removing for myself, but these 2 important relationships of Anakin were especially badly conceived by George in these movies, as far as I’m concerned.

reharsh

Best unintentional neologism ever.

Too bad it was coined by an insensitive asshat who rates ROTS above TESB.

So I am an assahat for not agreeing with you? Well, while I respect your opinion I think you got very low standards for asshats.

No, you’re an asshat for everything you said pertaining to Frink’s dead daughter.

Oh, but I forgot – that wasn’t you, was it? It was “someone else”.

[JEDIT]

SockOfBannedAsshat’s finally been banned. Thank God!

What are you talking about that was Ghibli who said that!

Ok, then maybe you can suggest an alternate theory as to why the “second guy” was banned.

I’m sure the mod staff would love to hear your evidence.

😄 He was hilarious in Italian. Just before R2 removes 3PO’s head, while in English (I think) he just says “My neck!” or “My head”, in Italian he says “If you keep pulling me like this, I’M GOING TO LOSE MY MIND!”, which is hilarious because of the pun (R2 is in fact pulling his mind/head) and the fact he’s not acting like his usual self, as a well composed person 😄

I wish George Lucas actually wrote that

That would have been funny.

Getting away from all that.

I think that TPM and AOTC are one decent movie, padded out with stupid crap to make two. If the first film had been about Anakin and Obi-Wan and the start of the war, showing a corrupt and decadent Republic it would have been ok. AOTC suffers from such a weak starting point, that it never had a chance.

It seems like people are really embracing the new characters. In fact, the big question people ask me now about Star Wars is, “Are Finn and Poe gay lovers?” And really how the f*ck would I know? My second husband left me for a man, so my gaydar isn’t exactly what you’d call Death Star level quality. ----Carrie Fisher
