Re: Favorite Star Wars film

I liked Return of the Jedi. Probably because of the payoff.

Yeah, because a princess and a farmboy routinely out-gunning Imperial Troopers in a standoff and never getting hit once even when standing out in the open is so much more realistic

There's plenty of reasons to hate on the prequels, but that was just stupid. The original trilogy has just as many ridiculous sequences like that.

There's also a scene where Obi-Wan fights Jango Fett; you can see Ewan swinging his lightsaber where his character should be deflecting a blaster bolt, but whoever did the CGI forgot to put the bolt in, and McGregor ends up deflecting an invisible blaster bolt. Little things like that bug me.
Those are no worse than the Stormtrooper effect, which made up about 80% of A New Hope's action.

Yoda vs. Sidious was fine, particularly since a lot of it isn't even a lightsaber duel. The other two I can see your point with, though.

Re: Favorite Star Wars film

Hands down The Empire Strikes Back is the best Star Wars film. I <3 it!
I can watch it over and over and never get tired of it. It is hilarious and exciting.

Re: Favorite Star Wars film

The Empire Strikes Back is my favorite. It's got a good script, the best acting in the series, a lot of humor, great music and one of the best plot twists in any movie. The Darth Vader vs. Luke duel is very good as well.

Re: Favorite Star Wars film

I just love how there really is no beginning and no end. Middle movies have that feel to them, know what I'm sayin'? The journey is heating up but it's not over yet =D
And Ashanark is right, it is the one with the twist that people are STILL talking about. Amazing film, really.
And there are no Ewoks, so yeah, it's awesome.

I was talking about the light saber duels, you ass. Never did I once mention the blaster fights.

He's pointing out the gap in your logic.

Re: Favorite Star Wars film

A New Hope is still a good movie that is largely humped by those who have seen it. If you're someone like me, though, who finds it overrated, then I guess we can end this since we agree.

You're one of the few who seems to actually like that change.

Re: Favorite Star Wars film

Return of the Jedi was the best, imo. Very emotional and powerful. The moment Vader lifted Palpatine up and tossed him down the shaft was amazing. But I can only watch the latest version of Return of the Jedi. I HATED the ending to the original.. Stupid Ewok song. Errrg

After that I would pick Attack of the Clones. I'm a sucker for over the top romance and I just thought it was a fun adventure that had one of the best finales in the whole series. From the arena battle, to the Jedi vs Droids battle, the start of the Clone Wars and of course the lightsaber battle between Yoda and Dooku.

Then I'd pick Empire Strikes Back, The Phantom Menace and A New Hope.

Anyone who doesn't like it is insane. It shows a galaxy in celebration. Much more effective than the cast members just dancing with teddy bears.

I actually never met someone in person who didn't like that change.

It wasn't needed but I thought it was a nice touch.. Considering Anakin dies in spirit in Revenge of the Sith. So seeing him as ANAKIN and not some old guy no one knows was a good idea to me.

No I mean like.. Anakin was NOT a bad person. He was manipulated and twisted into something he wasn't. So in spirit, Anakin Skywalker, the nice guy, started dying the second he allied with the Emperor..

Obviously Anakin was always inside Vader, but Vader only reflects the dark half of Anakin.

Which is why Obi wan says Vader killed Anakin. In a way, he was telling the truth. ~From a certain point of view~

Palpatine didn't introduce anything to Anakin that wasn't already there. Disassociating Vader from Anakin was a critical failure of Obi-Wan's; even in RotJ, he STILL hasn't learned his lesson and refuses to believe that there's any good in him at all, that Luke MUST kill him. Luke shows him how wrong he is. In the end, both Anakin and ObiWan stand side by side, having learned something important from the young Skywalker: that you don't abandon people who lose their way, and that forgiveness is the only way to break a cycle of hatred.

BTW, when I referred to bull****, I was referring to Obi-Wan's rationalisations to himself. I wasn't insulting your opinion.
I'm well aware that everyone has a good side and bad side. I'm just saying, Vader represents Anakin's bad side. In Revenge of the Sith, Anakin in a way dies in that Vader consumes his every decision.

When Anakin becomes one with the force, he appears as he did when he was in control over his darker half. Which is why I liked the idea of Hayden being in that last shot instead of Shaw.

Using Hayden's face is like erasing everything he's learned.

In my mind, anyway.
I wouldn't say so. The way I see it, Hayden's face just represents the better side of Anakin.
