See You In Hell!

Monday, June 13, 2005

I saw “Revenge of the Sith” this weekend, and I must say, it didn’t completely suck. But it WAS a little too computer-generated for my taste, and was basically devoid of any strong female characters. I mean, in the past two, Padme was like, a major political player….but now she’s in love, so fuck the career. Also, when Anakin turns to the dark side she “loses her will to live” and dies for no apparent reason other than she no longer has a man.

I really don’t remember a helluva lot about the first 2 star wars prequels, except that they were replete with suckiosity. The only thing that really sticks out in my mind was that there’s actually a blood test for Jedi.

Oh, and of course all of the rampant George Lucas racism (such as Watto and the universally despised jar-jar binks).

yeah, the death of padme=lame. have you seen the recently released dvd of "return of the jedi?" remember how at the end they showed luke seeing the spirits of obi-wan, yoda and a middle-aged anakin? well now they have placed the youthful Hayden Christenson in (digitally, of course) in place of the middle-aged anakin. it looks weird. but abbey dug it.

I saw that! And what really pissed me off was that they changed the music at the end! It was that one dumb sing-songy thing, but dammit, that's the music that is imprinted on my brain for Return Of The Jedi! How dare they fuck with that? You know, just because you CAN go apeshit with re-editing and computer-generated SFX doesnt mean that you SHOULD.
