I was reading a thread awhile back damning Jar Jar because he started the fall of the Republic.

Reluctantly, I say good thing he did or Anikin (Vader) cannot "bring balance to the force" in RotJ.

Just my 2 Republic credits!

True. I just don't like Jar-Jar because of the way he talks. (more annoying than C-3PO ever was)

:c3po: Oh My!!
:jarjar: Whata Mesa Sayin

Best part of Star Wars.

The way he speaks is the same way his whole race spoke. Some of you may be border line racists;) (or is that too harsh of a word)

well i dont have anything against his race:)
Its the high pitch voice of his that gets to me.

The other gungans dont have such high voices.

Here's the bottom line: Jar Jar was a fukkin waste of time, and basically destroyed the credibility that Star Wars once had. Anyone who thinks otherwise deserves some sort of castration at the hands of a salt monster......(extra pain!)

I do hate jar-jar and hope he strangles himself on his ****ing ears, or choke on his mother****ing tongue, however you really are an ignorant bitch when you managed to put that sentence together. Shows one of two things.

1. You have no ****ing brain, you're an idiot

2. You wanted to sound smart with that sentence. Now I'll give you a hint. TELL ME WHY WAS JAR-JAR IMPORTANT IN EP2!

Get the point? If not, you should be castrated on sight...

I seriously wish you had some basis in your insults Kal El, or whatever you wish to call yourself. You say I'm a ****ing idiot. Yet your reasoning has the tone of a six year old child whining for mommy to get off the phone. It's people like you who crowd Jerry Springer audiences, or populate the local unemployment offices. Do yourself a favor and take it for what it was: a satirical comment based on the worst thing ever in troduced into Star Wars.

I don't care about the releveance of Jar Jar in Ep2. He destroys the universe more or less, but considering his level of intelligence (which seems to be on par with yours) it's no surprise. That's a moot point in the end.

Bottom line: Everyone, and I guarentee you, EVERYONE has lost some respect for Star Wars since that jive talkin' gungan was introduced. The entire world became a slightly worse place after he first appeared onscreen back in '99.

(Oh, and if you do plan on doing some more insulting, at least try to articulate yourself a little more. Having a vocabulary over 10 words isn't a bad thing. Honestly)

Idiots... Without Jar Jar, the SW storyline wouldn't progress. He started the vote that gave power to the chancellor. Without that, they wouldn't have a clone army, which ment no backup for the Jedi, and that would mean they would ALL DIE.

Nice to know you are familiar with Jerry Springer, because I'm not heh. Seriously, I really don't need to use a vocabulary with 10 words because you probably wouldn't understand the 4th, let alone the 10th. You're bouncing son, sit down before you hurt yourself. This forum isn't made for you to jump up and down screaming how Jar-Jar scared you for life because you are a mindless idiot, and if you gave the matter some thought (here is the point, it seems you can't think) then you would find that reason justifies the means.

You know, your post is very nice, and it seems it has gone through some kind of a grammar corrector, however I wish I could say I got owned by an idiot but you just missed the chance because that is what you are. An idiot.

Have a nice day, maybe you can go and explain all-your-crying-story to someone else who has less brain than you, how you heard from a movie critic that Jar-Jar is bad, obviously just after the Ep1 was released, and are still repeating it just because you think it makes you feel smarter. How's the no-brainer territory, I'd really like to know how it feels to be manipulated by someone elses words just because his thought was published.

Dumbass...

Everyone has their least favorite characters- personally mine are Jango and Boba- I'm still trying to figure out what the point of them actually was. OK, Jango was the source for the clones, but what is Boba doing there?

I quite like JarJar, he's cute in a lotta ways (I can pull off a JarJar impersonation quite well) however I get why a lot of people probably don't like him- fair enough, it doesn't make anyone more or less of a fan just because you like or dislike JarJar (or any character for that matter)

Perhaps JarJar was over featured in Phantom Menace- but in Attack Of The Clones, he plays imo the most important role in the movie

C'jais
06-01-2002, 01:42 PM
I don't hate jar jar, but i did cover my head in shame on one occasion in TPM....

In AOTC, he's hardly even in the movie, and regardless of what people say, he didn't bring about the fall of the republic. If jar jar hadn't voted for palpatine, someone else would have. And he saved the jedis as someone pointed out.

Come on people, he is just there for comic relief, not there for everyone to direct their anger on. He is just as bad as c-3po IMO, and besides, he also has that funky clumsy walk.

And how would you feel if you were the actor who played him? I'd be scared of going out on an open street, for fear of these raving starwars lunatics.

Well, he was there to make his obsession with killing Jedi in Epi4-6 make sense. As many critics complained, "You could almost feel them tying off each loose end that needed to be tied by Episode 4 throughout the entire movie."

in Attack Of The Clones, he plays imo the most important role in the movie

Well, it could be argued that the only reason he plays the most important role is because Lucas had to do something to calm the vast multitudes of Jar Jar haters. :p "Look, he's important, so stop complaining that he sucked in the first one."

I just don't think Lucas' intentions of making him a comic character really worked. That should have been left to C-3PO. He was just too clumsy and downright annoying to be a Star Wars character. It didn't seem like he was the right character to be in that role.

I admit Jar Jar doesn't have a big role in Ep. I or II... But I think at times he was pretty funny like when the gungans were battleing the droids and when he was running away he kept doing stupid things and accidently destroying Droids and federation tanks. I thought he was pretty funny in that seen...Maybe lucas wanted a little humor for the first time in SW...

ET Warrior
06-05-2002, 10:47 PM
Humor for the FIRST time? Are you kidding me? Did you ever watch The Empire Strikes back? Yoda was Frickin hilarious, he was funny...Jar Jar was just annoying and stupid, i never laughed at his retarded antics, because they were not funny. And i doubt he saved the Jedi, for one of two reasons, either they would have convinced somebody else to vote for palpatines emergency powers, or if they hadn't, Yoda would have been involved in the main battle on Geonesia, and as we all know, he would have torn those droids apart without even trying.:syoda:

and here is where jar jar gets it :saberg::gungan:

I too am a BIG fan of General Jar Jar Binks I didnt find him annoying at all.

As for his request in the Senate he was unaware, Im pretty sure, that Palpy was plotting the downfall of the Republic when he put the request, he was under instructions from Palpy to put the request for the Grand Army for other reasons, well tahts the way I read it anyway

The mosat annoying character for me was Han Solo, what a shame he was thawed, shame theres not going to be episodes vii, viii and ix so I could plot ways to kill him off

Long live Jar Jar, at least till the end of ep. iii

Kryllith
06-19-2002, 12:32 AM
I personally don't have a problem with Jar Jar's character. I do have a couple problems with the lines delivered ("exsqueeze me" for example, reeks too much of Wayne's World), but not with him overall. Reality check, there are people in this world who are socially inept, clumsy, who just don't fit in, and Jar Jar happens to be one of them. Fact is, there's a fair amount of population that would group anybody that argues about Star Wars in the same category as Jar Jar (i.e. socially inept). Does that make them in better? No.

Granted, maybe Lucas went a little overboard with Jar Jar, maybe placed a little too much emphasis on some of his social/physical faults. Maybe he didn't. Saying that he's not a good Star Wars character, or that he ruined the movie, or whatever just because of his personal hinderences is silly though. Like everyone in Star Wars is supposed to be socially adept with jedi reflexes... give me a break.

That's kind of how a lot of star wars characters show up.....Yoda in ESB...wicket in RotJ....it's an easy way to bring in a character......However.....i still hate JarJar......Simply because of his super annoyingness. Now i won't say it ruined star wars.....i loved episode 1.......but i hate Jar Jar and will hate him until he dies :D (and now he is the reason the emperor got so much power and the republic fell......that b@$tard)

RichDiesal
06-19-2002, 02:38 PM
Yes, but he's also the reason that Obi Wan, Anakin, and Padme survived the battle in the Arena. Without Jar Jar, they couldn't have gotten support for the Clone Army... :D

Ah, the complex threads of an epic...

Of course i'll point my finger at them.....perhaps in the book it was the jedi council that supported manipulating jarjar, but in the movie it was just palpatine and.....oh jeez, that one blue guy....i'll think of his name....and i think that the lives of obiwan anakin and padme are worth that of the thousands of jedi that would die as a result of palpatines rise to power

Kryllith
06-20-2002, 09:46 PM
Perhaps, perhaps not. I find it a bit suspicious that Yoda and Windu were waiting in the wings of the senatorial halls for a vote to be cast and then yoda immediately set out to gather up the clone army. Seems like the were in on it to me...

Kryllith

I doubt such big meetings of the senate over such an important issue go on without the jedi council being informed......so i can understand why they'd be there. And they had to move quickly afterwords, as they knew that obi wan was in danger.

RectalFury
06-22-2002, 03:07 PM
Ok, first of all any arguement saying that Jar Jar was important because of his role as a senator is not valid when we are discussing whether or not he should have been in the movie. George Lucas could have put any number of characters in instead of the gungans (Aquatic Ewoks anyone?). It is clear that George did put Jar Jar in for comic relief, but as others have mentioned he simply wasn't funny. The stupid battle droids weren't funny either. The humor was very childish. In the OT, comic relief was provided through the droids (R2 & Threepio), ewoks, and sometimes the main characters. Note that all of the humor in OT WAS FUNNY. Luckily R2 and Threepio had a scene in AOTC which gives some hope that Jar Jar was just a one-episode mistake who will now be tucked away and forgotten, or better yet dismembered and thrown into the sarlacc. Unfortunately in Episodes 1&2 the main characters don't seem to provide any comic relief. This takes away from their personality majorly and is a reason their acting is criticized so much. Luke, Han Solo, Leia, Chewbacca, they were all great but if their humor was taken away they would be called bad actors just like the characters in Episodes 1&2 often are.

mez1109
06-22-2002, 07:27 PM
Well done RectalFury, I think exactly the same.

The main thing that made me angry with SW1 & SW2, is that when you are getting into the action scene which is very serious, some fool comes up with a corky joke for no reason.

Last time I said that, ET Worrior & MotionMan got angry with me.

They misunderstand, that I don't hate the new SW, but the stupid kiddie jokes ruin it. No one in the cinema was even laughing, not even the little kids.

George, no more bad timed corky jokes in SW3.

ET Warrior
06-23-2002, 12:13 AM
I didn't get mad that you talked about the jokes....i got mad because you can't spell my name right......:D

But i will disagree about the main characters not using humor....i laughed several times.......when obi wan tells anakin that he'll be the death of him..:) Or the whole exchange when obiwan gets into the speader
ObiWan: What took you so long
Anakin: Oh, you know master, i couldn't find a speeder i liked, one with an open cockpit and the right speed capabilities
ObiWan: If you spent as much time practicing your saber techniques as you did your wit you would rival master Yoda as a swordsman
Anakin: I thought i already did
ObiWan: Only in your mind my very young apprentice.
:rofl:

Or on Geonosis
ObiWan: Just keep focused
Anaking: What about Padme?
ObiWan: She seems on top of things
:D

Or Yoda
Lost a planet master obiwan has, how embarrassing, how Embarrasing......

The biggest problem is that Harrison Ford isn't in the movie.....it's hard to get someone that could pull off funny one-liners like he did......If you watch the OT you'll notice that it was basically him saying the funny things....occasionally leia, Yoda was funny, but luke almost never was.

mez1109
06-23-2002, 02:16 AM
I like the Yoda joke, as he was talking to kids, the rest i am sorry to say are either NOT funny, or have a bad delivery.

I agree that Han was able to pull it off, even as Indy it worked, but I am sorry, those jokes just made Obi Wan look stupis, come on, nobody in the cinema laughed at them.

MotionMan
06-23-2002, 03:15 AM
You also have to see that in the new trilogy, the main charecters are Jedis. Jedis are not trained since childhood to be a walking comedy show. They are supose to be mindfull,wise, profesional ect.
This is how they are brought up. In the OT you see more wise cracks and jokes because the main charecters are not Jedi(Luke isnt a true jedi:) ).

ET Warrior
06-23-2002, 05:39 AM
Well, I laughed at those parts...i thought it showed that obi wan isn't all seriousness.

And motion man is also correct.....Han was a smuggler... he was a bandit, a soundrel, he needed a sense of humor.....Jedis are not trained to be funny......

RectalFury
06-23-2002, 07:05 AM
I admit I did think those parts were funny, ET. The childish humor still can't be excused though. And Jedi can be funny MotionMan, just look at Yoda in ESB. The only other funny Jedi line in AOTC is when Mace says "This party's over." That was the best line in the entire movie.:mace: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

I agree that Jedi can be funny. I did find the humor that some didnt catch very funny in the new movies.
Others didnt catch it cause they were expecting a more "IN YOUR FACE" type jokes like in the OT I guese.
It all has to do with how Jedi's are required to act. That doesnt mean they are stiffs. Like ET and RectalFury explained they do show some humor now and then.

I agree with that, though it seems to me that they (and everyone else in the room when Palpatine and his advisor made the suggestion) knew what JarJar was going to do. They didn't speak out against the idea of giving Palpatine power when the suggestion was made, so that's passive acceptance in any case (which is understandable when they learned of the army being build on Genosia). And the Senate had to be willing to go along with the idea. The simple reality of the situation is that Palpatine duped them all, so JarJar couldn't really be blamed more than anyone else. If he wasn't there, chances are Palpatine and company simple would have convinced someone else...

Yeah, both Ahmed Best and Anthony Daniels are in the catina. Anakin walks in front of both of them when he's searching for Wessel. If you really want to see them easily, watch immediately after Obiwan disarms Wessel when the camera is showing the patrons' reactions. I'm pretty sure it jumps right to Daniels's face and then immediately to Best's (might be in reverse order).
