For one person the overall story of the prequels could be condensed into a single film, while for another it would take five. It all depends on how you feel the story should unfold, what should be emphasized/deemphasized, etc.
I find theforce.net to be (largely) stifling and boring, and that's why I can go months without ever posting there. That's just me, though.
Awesome! Thanks! =D
Never use "bastard" as a prejorative term on TFN, kiddies. We have the EU-derived "bastarve" for that.
Little wonder I have little respect for the whole site; aside from the whole PT/Dork Age EU saturation going on, general silliness such as this is a real turnoff.
Anyone know where to find a larger version of the SW poster in that pic? Looks rather cool ...
What If: To help make the Jedi lose some luster, Darth Sidious spread a rumor that implied that the Force was not some divine power granted only to a special few. But that it was some sort of genetically designed enhancement. Something that the Jedi created to allow them to take over the universe.
This would allow Sidious to trick the Republic into believing that the Jedi were duplicitous and deserving of extermination.
What does anyone else think?
It could be a good development if it was realized properly, I guess. That being said, the idea doesn't really catch my fancy. Sorry.
Also, Obi-Wan and Darth Maul (under all the makeup) are dead ringers
Luke's lightsaber in TESB should be recoloured cyan.
In ANH, when Luke activates his father's lightsaber for the first time we see it with a nice clear cyan glow - totally unlike the azure (sky blue) of Obi-Wan's blade and the later film's saber.
Yeah, it may be have just been a glitch or whatever in the colouring process (like when it appeared white during the training scene aboard the Falcon). However, since it was first revealed with a cyan colour then that colour should take precedence.
Plus, it would add some subtle variety. =D
I agree with your basic points, haljordan28 - that the lightsaber duels in the PT were unnecessarily flashy, over-choreographed, and just plain ridiculous.
But please, man, proofread your writing before you post; I think you'd gain some modicum of respect around here if your writing was more legible.
What became of that prequel comic that those other people were working on? I've never heard anything about it.
I believe he's referring to the dude running this blog.
George's father was a staunch Methodist and a conservative Republican. Lucas is a Buddhist Methodist and a liberal Democrat, which probably was in the beginning done out of Rebellion against his upbringing.
Fixed it for ya. =D
Uggh ... That definately does nothing for me. :-(
Why be a superhero when I can be a supervillain. >:-)
I believe my name is self-explanatory.
I read it and disliked it. It felt rushed, with nagging plot holes, poorly-developed characters, and the unnecessary addition of Han and Chewie.
And frankly, I'm not too fond of the whole "zombie plague" trope; not only has it been done to death, but it doesn't mesh well with Star Wars; I think Lovecraftian horror would suit the SW Universe much better IMHO.
On the plus side, there were almost no PT references; one tiny mention of the Intergalactic Banking Clan, and that was it.

Very interesting title for that "Splinter." What is the phrase's significance in the book?
There's some speculation that the Vader that Luke & Leia battle near the end of the novel wasn't meant to be the real Darth Vader but some sort of supernatural manifestation created by the Kaiburr crystal, and that the title is meant to touch upon an impaired ability to perceive reality.

But I thought an incredible ass is a good thing?
Incredibly filthy with festering sores.
I'm unemployed, live with my parents, and the film & music industries both suck incredible ass. >:-(
Poltergeist III. >:-(
There's no way in Hell that that third-rate Freddy Kruger is the Beast from the first movie; no @#$%ing way.

If Season 10+ hadn't ruined The Simpsons for me, this surely would have. ;-)
For starters, even though I love it, "Smallville" has some of the worst writing I've ever seen on television.
But if you're talking a character who is a yelling, angry, hate-spewing talk radio guy, there aren't a lot of liberal types in that genre. Also, the dude was poccessed by Darkseid.
Now they introduced Darkseid on the show!?
I am so glad I stopped watching after the fifth season.
Star Wars stopped being fun for me shortly before-or-after I saw ROTS, when the EU writers started kissing Lucas' ass in earnest and turning out piles and piles of poorly-written shit; reading the early EU and ignoring the PT & SE helped lots in keeping me from losing all interest in the franchise.
I expected a one-on-one duel between Anakin and Windu and the extermination of the Jedi Council; I never thought we'd get to see the entire Order exterminated in one episode, or exterminated so poorly.
I have a shitload of scary sound effect mp3's on my computer that sound better then this piece of vomit.
I find that if you consider the talent of the ysalamiri to be the ability to nullify one's ability to perceive and manipulate the Force rather than the outright nullification of the Force itself, then it's easier to stomach the little critters.
