[QUOTE=Lazor;32493615]if you think that Biggs' death serving as a symbol of Luke's transformation is some sort of "omg 2 deep 4 u" metaphor then i'd be astonished if you made it past the 9th grade and fuck no he didn't die "just because", that's not how fucking writing works ever[/QUOTE] He died because he was a terrorist, and in a fucking war.

Anyone else think this should have been the official RotS poster and DVD cover? [url]http://awesomeness123456.webs.com/ep3-poster25.jpg[/url]
nah i like the drawn look better [editline]1st October 2011[/editline] personally
Right, well what if that poster had the drawn look to it?
If Biggs death was supposed to be important, Luke would have cared
[QUOTE=Pops;32564803]Anyone else think this should have been the official RotS poster and DVD cover? [url]http://awesomeness123456.webs.com/ep3-poster25.jpg[/url][/QUOTE] It's cool but at the same time I kind of hate that picture of Darth Vader. The Darth Vader suit in RotS was just too muscular and active.

I take back what I said about the Clone Wars, the Gungans just captured General Grievous. What the hell. Also, Jar Jar was the one who amde it happened, his distracted Grevious long enough for one of the Gungan generals to disable the Droid platoon guarding him. Mine you, it was like 30 Gungans Vs him and they had those Blue ball things from The Phantom Menace. You really need to see the episode to understand it. [editline]2nd October 2011[/editline] Wow, and now Padme in her ultimate Wisdom traded Grievous for Anakin
How could they apprehend Grievous anyway? He was pretty much designed to be an unstoppable killing machine.
[QUOTE=The Maestro;32584299]How could they apprehend Grievous anyway? He was pretty much designed to be an unstoppable killing machine.[/QUOTE] The Gungans gave General Grievous blue balls. That's how.
gungans were a terrible addition to be honest
Has anyone seen the deleted footage from the Bluray release (original trilogy only)? Anything cool or interesting?
They're all over Youtube
Was anyone else disappointed that Luke's dark side is basically a 5 year old swinging a stick around?

[QUOTE=LtKyle2;32613542]Was anyone else disappointed that Luke's dark side is basically a 5 year old swinging a stick around?[/QUOTE] Luke's dark side? Or do you mean anakin? Luke's "dark side" (which I don't believe should even count as a dark side moment, as he still had the control over his actions. "Once you begin the dark path[or words to that effect], forever will it dominate your destiny" - Yoda.) was powerful enough to amputate Darth Vader, so I'd rethink your statement there.
[QUOTE=Mr._N;32585804]The Gungans gave General Grievous blue balls. That's how.[/QUOTE] They also had Cattleprods on a stick. That Gungan general that zaps Jar Jar (How rude! bit) at the beginning of Episode Sacrificed himself to get point blank to zap him in the face. There is a lot of Death in the Clone Wars that past 2 seasons. A lot. Some of it graphic.
What I really love about Star Wars is how passionate the fans can be. You'll be talking about some guy in the background serving Jabba in his palace in Return of the Jedi and you could have a 2 hour conversation about him and his backstory with your friends.

It's a shared hobby, comparable to a religion. Just a bit more tame, and less dangerous.
I'm not sure if this was posted here, sorry if I'm late. [video=youtube;k0To4m1pgcU]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k0To4m1pgcU[/video]
My mom just got me a blu-ray from Wal-Mart. "I WONDER WHAT IT IS! THIS IS MILDLY EXCITING!" *Star Wars Episodes IV-VI on blu-ray*
I really felt for General Grievous. If you read his backstory, you can see he has a completely justified reason for joining the dark side.
Yeah, but at the same time the way he acted in the movie just made him totally unlikeable.
[QUOTE=The Maestro;32732638]Yeah, but at the same time the way he acted in the movie just made him totally unlikeable.[/QUOTE]Plus the fact that he came out of nowhere and it was like why should I care about some coughing robot?
Watching these movies on blu-ray LOOKS nice, but the changes Lucas made are so fucking distracting that it pulls you out of the magical world it's trying to create. It's kind of sad.
[QUOTE=Mr._N;32733516]Plus the fact that he came out of nowhere and it was like why should I care about some coughing robot?[/QUOTE] Well his first appearance was that Clone Wars cartoon back in '03, then the book Labyrinth of Evil, so if you watch the films in numerical order, then watch that show and read that book in between 2 and 3, it makes more sense.

Although I did like the coughing (since I watched the cartoon before Ep3 came out) I still can't help but sit and wonder, to this day, as to why he was such a pussy. I mean in the clone wars he fucking killed jedi left and right (then again it was hinted at that he killed a jedi that you see walking around in 3)
Honestly, I think they should've scrapped Grievous in Episode III and just had Dooku get offed by Obi-Wan on Utapau. Grievous was cool in Clone Wars, but he was just a dork in Episode III. Now think of this: Obi-Wan has a connection with Dooku in that Dooku taught Obi-Wan's master, Qui-Gon. Anakin is just some random punk that Dooku cut the arm off of. Therefore, I think Obi-Wan killing Dooku would've been much more fitting. [editline]12th October 2011[/editline] And it still provides a reason for Obi-Wan's absence, and Anakin's fall.
