[QUOTE=thrawn2787;32787144]Actually Maul was brought back in a non cannon (but still official I believe) comic book where he tries to kill a young Luke and Ben kicks the shit out of him. Funny because at the time it was non cannon and was he was confirmed dead. More lore rape hooray![/QUOTE] Oh yes, I remember that, and Obi-Wan almost gets him, but Uncle Owen shoots Maul in the head and totally steals it from Obi-Wan and then he tells him to never come back. Man, Uncle Owen is a dick.
[QUOTE=eatdembeanz;32804448]Apparently Hutts and Toydarians (what Watto is, I think), along with a few other very intelligent/shifty races are completely immune to Jedi mind tricks. Not so much for other Jedi powers.[/QUOTE] Gungans , too

[QUOTE=Neat!;32783340]No children. No comic relief. No jar jar. But maybe Gungans portrayed in a better light (I'll find a way). No magic lightsabers that cauterize people's halves together upon exiting. It won't be Inglourious Basterds, though. More like Drive mixed with District 9 and the better parts of the new trilogy. I'd say a heavy PG-13 rating, no crazy gore and brutal violence. And skeligandrew, I'll bet forty rubles Lucas puts "Don't fuck with my [b]ART[/b]" in his will. [editline]14th October 2011[/editline] Or leaves in the Sarlacc's beak and the enhanced space combat/flying shit, but leaves out the bucking Ronto, that fucking musical score in Jabba's palace, and other shit like that. Han shoots first, no CG walkie-talkies, and no censored smoke clouds when people get shot. Oh, and Lando's Cloud City announcement gets scrapped.[/QUOTE] You're too fanboy and immature to deserve to reboot anything. Especially Star Wars. The fact you want to reboot Star Wars is example of this alone.
[QUOTE=Dan2593;32810649]You're too fanboy and immature to deserve to reboot anything. Especially Star Wars. The fact you want to reboot Star Wars is example of this alone.[/QUOTE] I honestly wouldn't mind if they tried to do the prequels again.
[QUOTE=TheFilmSlacker;32812608]I honestly wouldn't mind if they tried to do the prequels again.[/QUOTE] It would just degenerate into a massive Lucas hate circle jerk.
[QUOTE=The Maestro;32816181]It would just degenerate into a massive Lucas hate circle jerk.[/QUOTE] Oh no, George Lucas has lost his franchise ruining privileges. I'd want someone who could do them decently. OR BETTER YET, give us Episodes VII, VII and IX.
[QUOTE=Neat!;32806717]Gungans , too[/QUOTE] No they arent, in the first movie Qui-Gon actually tricked them into giving the sub and Jar-Jar
[QUOTE=RG4;32823343]No they arent, in the first movie Qui-Gon actually tricked them into giving the sub and Jar-Jar[/QUOTE] The first part is true, but he didn't Mind trick him into giving them jar Jar, he pulled the Life Debt card there. Plus even if there wasn't a life debt, they probably would have given them to him even without a mind trick. Not even his own people like him. Well not until the end of the movie. [editline]17th October 2011[/editline] [QUOTE=The Castro;32806351]Man, Uncle Owen is a dick.[/QUOTE] Out of the 2 Jedi he ever met, one turned into a whiny bitch and then a badass evil guy The other one gave them a kid and became a old hermit in the desert which attracted an evil half Sith Cyborg to their home. I'd be a dick to him as well.
Am I the only one who thought episode one was actually better than the subsequent sequels, besides the gungans and [B]fucking jar jar binks[/B]? It was far from flawless of course, but some scenes were very memorable and looking back, quite enjoyable. I always felt the lightsaber coreography in episode 1 was far better too. It was much more controlled and less over the top, it actually resembled something akin to swordfighting. The choreography in the sequels looked like Michael Jackson getting a bit too excited with a fencing saber. IMO attack of the clones is the worst movie of the entire series. Terrible dialogue and a really unconvincing romance.

[QUOTE=DainBramageStudios;32828255]Has anyone seen [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Phantom_Edit]The Phantom Edit[/url]?[/QUOTE] wow, no but it sounds great
[QUOTE=Rong;32775207]So, promotional material finally arises [IMG]http://i55.tinypic.com/2ir5ity.jpg[/IMG] Looks amateurish[/QUOTE]See, this is [I]hilarious[/I] how much they're trying to cash in on what people liked. It's like "DARTH MAUL! DARTH MAUL! Look! There's YODA! and the PODRACES!" Meanwhile Anakin, Padme, Jar Jar, Qui-Gon, etc. are nowhere to be seen
[QUOTE=DainBramageStudios;32828255]Has anyone seen [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Phantom_Edit]The Phantom Edit[/url]?[/QUOTE] This sounds fantastic. One of the biggest things that pained me about EP1 was the battle droid dialogue.
I always felt that the original Star Wars movies were too cheesy. I just don't really understand the hype behind them compared to the hate towards the prequels. Could someone explain why they are hated?
For me, Hayden Christensen
[QUOTE=Rong;32836493]For me, Hayden Christensen[/QUOTE] Mmhmm. They honestly would have been decent movies if it wasn't for Hayden. Maybe even GOOD movies.
How about the fact that no one likes Jar Jar or stupid explanations for the force or kids YIPPIE
[QUOTE=DainBramageStudios;32828255]Has anyone seen [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Phantom_Edit]The Phantom Edit[/url]?[/QUOTE] Ever since seeing A New Hope Revisited, I've tended to instantly turn down fan edits. However, this does sound like it is improved. I don't see anything wrong with the battle droid dialogue though, maybe the SBDs in episode 3, but fine elsewhere.
I liked the battle droids in Episode 1. They sounded cool, and were actually capable of handling things themselves unlike in the other movies.
[QUOTE=DeandreT;32836432]I always felt that the original Star Wars movies were too cheesy. I just don't really understand the hype behind them compared to the hate towards the prequels. Could someone explain why they are hated?[/QUOTE] I enjoyed the prequels less then the originals mainly because the dialog (& delivery) seemed so much more wooden. The interactions for the most part felt more natural in the originals.
[QUOTE=TheFilmSlacker;32836714]Mmhmm. They honestly would have been decent movies if it wasn't for Hayden. Maybe even GOOD movies.[/QUOTE] I don't think it was his fault, not even Liam Neeson and Ewan McGregor could read Lucas' shitty dialogue.
I watched the Prequel trilogy before seeing any of the original trilogy (infact I only watched them last week), so probably all my opinions are wrong, but I hated the fucking Ewoks. They were dumb. [editline]18th October 2011[/editline] The only things I don't understand about the prequels, are how Darth Sidious managed to hide from Yoda, Windu and all those other fucking Jedi, when he was a powerful sith, and he was right up in their face the whole time. I also don't get how it seemed like everytime throughout the trilogy a Jedi got shot at, they predicted it and blocked it or whatever. Then right at the end they pretty much commenced mass suicide by letting clone troopers shoot them all, when they should've been able to take them on.
If they ever were to make a Star Wars film again, it would have to be the same era as Old Republic, and preferably during the same time as Revan and Malak was alive. It should also use the same dark setting as in the games.
Looks like Sam Witwer will be voicing Darth Maul

[QUOTE=UnidentifiedFlyingTard;32842030]I don't think it was his fault, not even Liam Neeson and Ewan McGregor could read Lucas' shitty dialogue.[/QUOTE] Well, that and the fact that they were acting in front of a green screen for almost the entire movie. I didn't like the writing in Episode III very much, but Ewan McGregor didn't do that bad of an acting job as far as I'm concerned.
[QUOTE=TheFilmSlacker;32836714]Mmhmm. They honestly would have been decent movies if it wasn't for Hayden. Maybe even GOOD movies.[/QUOTE] No. Nothing could've saved AOTC's terrible dialogue. [editline]19th October 2011[/editline] But anyone thinking this a problem unique to the prequels alone, i implore you to go back and watch the original trilogy. It's a problem with anything Lucas writes or directs. Hence why Empire Strikes Back is the best of the whole bunch.
