    With Episode 2 only 21 days away, what are some of the things you look forward to seeing the most in the new SW film?

    #1 Jango and Obi-Wan's battle on Kamino.

    #2 Yoda kicking arse in a force-power show down!

    #3 The Jedi force sent to Geonosis

    I saw George Lucas on TV and he gave then ending away, he said that this movie will not be a happy ending. But the 3rd one will be.

    which was the same with Episode 5 & 6. Episode 5 didn't have a happy ending, but Episode 6 did.

    I can't wait for the movie, but I do wish it had a happy ending:(( :(( I hate sad or scary movies. But heck, this is Star Wars - it can't be missed

    I hope to see the slow painful death of Jar-Jar Binks and whoever created him in the film! And if there is a line like "Yipee, I'm going to be a Jedi" in this movie, I'm walking out! :mad:

    See ya

    Odd, I assume you didn't like Episode 1 Tony. Episode 1 was my favorite Star Wars

    Don't tell me JarJar is in AOTC?

    A friend of mine, who is a big SW freak, was telling me "the clones" were JarJar clones! He had me going there for a few seconds! :lol:

    They have to kill Jar Jar on screen. They have to. The scene would get cheers to shake theatres across the world, every single time it's shown. How can they pass that up?

    I'll wait for some others to see it and give me their opinions. If it sounds like it's worth the $5.50, I'll see the thing on a Sunday afternoon. I doubt I'll spend the 8 bucks for a night showing.

    Personally Spiderman looks better. Of course, neither will probably be on the same planet as Empire Strikes Back.

    I really wish Lucas had never gone back to this series. In 20 years, people won't recognize the greatness of the previous masterly trilogy.

    Hey, the action figure line for the new film was released yesterday! I collect them, so it was a big deal for me, at least. :blush:

    I'm looking forward to the movie. I've been spoiled already on a lot of the plot, but I'm sure there are plenty of surprises left. Tony, Jar Jar is supposed to have a much smaller role in this film, and while I don't think he is killed, you might enjoy at least one scene (which I was going to include in this post, but it doesn't look like this forum supports the spoiler vb tag).

    I read that Jar-Jar has a greatly reduced role in episode 2, but he is not killed.

    I read in Newsweek an analysis of the fiasco that was Ep1 merchandising saying that Jar Jar makes about a 2 minute appearance in the movie because NO ONE LIKE HIM, except young kids. The article said that Lucas thought it was his worst mistake and that Ep1 also suffered due to the long time between his direction of movies - took a bit of the edge off. He also brought in a co-writer so the lines aren't so "forced"

    So do y'all like it that they have changed the logos for the original Trilogy? I personally don't think they should. Got this in a Star Wars Newsletter:

    I will look into adding the Spoiler Tag to DBStalk.COM

    For those of you who dont know a spoiler tag puts a part of your posts and changes the color of the letters to match the backround color this way they are hidden, that is untill you point and click over them with your mouse then the letters appear.

    Very cool feature Scott.

    Actually it was okay, but it was by far my least favorite SW movie. The biggest problem I had with the movie was my perceived change in focus. All other SW flicks were great fantacies aimed at adults. The movies also worked great for kids. But it was intended for the adult (or at least older kid) audience.

    SW1 seemed to me to be a kiddie movie. You had the LOUSY actor playing Anakin in the POD race that was straight out of a video game commercial. Yes the effects were cool, but how did it really advance the story? You had a 9 year-old kid in a star fighter blow up the station and be the hero. It was just too much.

    The line I mentioned: "Yippee! I'm going to be a Jedi!" was the point at which the people I went with to see the movie (a bunch of 40 year-olds) looked at each other and began to laugh uncontrolably! At that point, I lost all suspension of disbelief.

    I know that the movie was to deal with the discovery of Anakin's powers of the force and the destruction of the republic and the eventual rise to power of the evil senator. But in Star Wars, Luke was a teen hot-shot that was guided by the gruff Han Solo and his Wookie as well as Obi Wan. In the second movie he was still a kid being taught by Yoda in the ways of the force. In SW1 Anakin was a 20 year-old midgit intead of a 9 year-old kid! There was no guidance. Just shove him in a pod and have him race. It just didn't work for me.

    I still enjoyed the movie for its effects and what little story there was. But it was a kiddie movie. Jar-Jar would have been more tolerable had the rest of the movie not been so childish.

    I have high hopes that AotK will redeem the franchise.

    See ya
    Tony

    My impression of episode 1 was that it was designed to be easy to translate into video games and such.

    I heard that the Lucas Films people told the toy industry (Hasbro specifically I believe) that the secondary market (toy sales) didn't live up to expectations and to not count on this being a kids movie with cartoonish characters.

    My local Toys R Us opened at Midnight and Sold Star Wars toys for two hours.

    I talked to the manager yesterday and he said they only sold about $50 in Star Wars things that night.

    I just purchased the soundtrack to AOTC. Sounds like it's going to be a very dark movie. Another great soundtrack though by John Williams.
