What's disappointing about 'The Empire Strikes Back'?smiley - huh
One thing I think we can agree with is that there's no need to watch 'Ewoks - Caravan of Courage' or 'Ewoks – Battle for Endor'.

Don't get me wrong, I like all of the episodes and certainly also Rogue One. Some more than others, though.

The Ewoks and especially Jarjar Binks I could do without, the latter being too goofy to fit into the otherwise very serious fantasy, if you know what I mean.

I haven't seen neither the tv films nor the animated series and don't think I ever will.

If you want to avoid disappointment then skip I-III altogether.

Good Doctor Zomnker (This must be Tuesday," said GDZ to himself, sinking low over his Dr. Pepper, "I never could get the hang of Tuesdays.")

I currently watch in the Machete Order. 4, 5, 2, 3, 6, 7. Absolutely no need for episode 1. When Rogue One comes out on Bluray I will start with it.

With all of the argument as to "proper" order, and something that I have lived well without . . . (I was quite happy with Battlestar Gallactica the same beginning summer) . . .

I have the original Magnificent Seven, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, Gun Fight at the O.K. Corral, and Spartacus to watch. I'm set for a while. smiley - smiley

Oh, and of course, some classics such as Cat Ballou, and Evil Roy Slade. smiley - winkeye

Have you all read about the hypothesis that Jar Jar is a sith? His strange success in fighting, which is similar to "drunken style" kung fu, generally clumsy, but makes an amazingly coordinated dive into the lake of his people, being completely awkward but still able to influence people and even hang around the senate etc. The idea goes on, that the sith story had to be abandoned for the coming episodes because of all the Jar Jar hate.

I generally get all that I need to know of Star Wars from a television program . . .

The Big Bang Theory.

Here's YouTube video explaining the Jar Jar = Sith hypothesis.

I don't buy it, but it's interesting.


As for alternate movie theories I like the one about how Danny was the bully in Karate Kid.

I also recommend The Ferris Bueller/Fight Club theory: http://youtu.be/COVY3QU-Utw

I have a feeling there is an element of 'you had to be there' for Star Wars. I came at Star Wars quite late, after having watched stuff like Star Trek, Firefly and Farscape. Heck, I saw Spaceballs and Spaced before I saw Star Wars. When you have seen the things that came after it, somehow Star Wars seems a bit cliched - even though it came first. While I get that that's rather unfair of me, I can't seem to find a love for it.

I've been rather more into Due South again lately. I tend to watch seasons 3 & 4 first, and then start again at the pilot and 1 & 2.

A tongue in cheek asessment of "Star Wars"; if the Clone Wars that resulted in the destruction of the old republic and the Jedi knights were touched off, as it happened, by Master Yoda; and he and Obiwan Kenobee, who has a droid alphanumerical designation, zero beta one Kn zero beta; and all the other survivors of the Jedi order are members of the Sith; isn't all that a mite suspicious?

It raises questions about Master Yoda, for example, author of sinister and devious plots or hapless dupe?

That reminds me of another issue I had with Phantom Menace. Yoda doing all those Shao Lin gymnastics in his fight scenes. He's got Force telekinesis, he doesn't need to do flips! It just seemed like the Lucas team at ILM thought that since they didn't need Muppeteers for Yoda they thought it would be "cool" to show off what their computers could make Yoda do. Yoda was "cool" because he was so stoic, mystical and had a calm strength in such a small, nonthreatening body.

I saw Star Wars from the beginning (Episode IV) an fell in love with this universe immediately. Mainly because the animations were so - well, out of this world, really.
Even though they were only in 2D it felt very much like actually being there.
Which is more than can be said about earlier films like Godzilla and Reptilicus smiley - yikes - probably the worst film ever made (in particular the Danish version). Check at own risk!

Cybercat: Part 2

I've only ever seen one star wars film. Tbh was never a fan of it anyway. Wouldn't mind seeing the Assassins Creed film though was a fan of the computer games smiley - smiley
