Tell me why The Phantom Menace was so crap?
 
When The Phantom Menace came out in Australia in July, I went to see it. But...
It was CRAP! Bloody hell, I could pull a better movie out of my arse! Well it wasn't that bad but Return of the Jedi will always be my favourite.

I liked the new Star Wars movie! And I really wish you wouldn't pull anything out of your arse...yuck! http://www.roguesquadron.net/forums/smile.gif

I though it was an imaginative look at the Star Wars universe from a point of view we haven't had before. The special effects were totally cool, and I found the depiction of Jedi warriors in combat at the height of their craft thrilling. It wasn't as easy to get into as the first Star Wars trilogy; the special effects baffle as much as accentuate these days. In that respect, it didn't have the same "legendary" flavor...but inclusive with the others, it helps set up the epic.

However...I do hate Jar Jar, almost as much as I hate pikachus. If I saw him crossing the street, I would speed up and take him out with my door. He was okay for most of the movie, but he eventually got on my nerves toward the end. The movie really didn't need a clown to begin with!

Anyway. I liked the movie. Deal with it. http://www.roguesquadron.net/forums/smile.gif

Hi everybody ! http://www.roguesquadron.net/forums/smile.gif

I saw the first Star Wars movie (ANH) back in 1978, a year after it's realease. I was astonished ! I've been a SW fan ever since. The official premiere took place in my country 15/10 and I was there...but... http://www.roguesquadron.net/forums/frown.gif
In the original trilogy, Lucas had SFX serving the story-telling. In TPM it's the other way around ! http://www.roguesquadron.net/forums/frown.gif
If it wasn't for Liam Neeson playing that good, Qui would have been nothing than a stooge. Obi-wan's role in the other hand, was literally non-existent! All Ewan McGregor could do was running around with an angry face !

Where were the notorious clone wars, the massive Jedi Knight's fights or the huge space dogfights ?

As for Jar-Jar... I don't even want to talk about IT >=(

The only thing that was really good , was the final duel and John williams' epic music.

I really hope that GL will make it up for us in the upcoming episodes...

TPM I thought, was pretty good. though tha acting suffered, and Jar Jar was just annoying, it was good. I wan't expecting the Awe of the first ones, so I was happy.

Hey...maybe we're just looking at this movie through different eyes!

Now that we're adults, of course we aren't going to see this movies with the same sense of fresh wonder. Also, now that believable special efects are widespread, that sense of "Wow...! That looks REAL!" just isn't there. Remember, when Star Wars came out, the only realistic space movie to have come out before was 2001: A Space Odyssey.

When I was a kid...I was right there in the cabin of the Millenium Falcon as we buckled in and took off up into the desert sky. The orbital ascent went quickly, and we were under attack from Imperial starships...

Now that I'm older, and much more jaded when it comes to graphics (we don't even call them "special effects" anymore, since they're all digital), the same experience just isn't possible.

Anyway. I thought Wing Commander was pretty worthless, too. I didn't pay attention enough to the credits, but that film had a heavy Russian flavor to it. Not that I disagreed with that, just that it's a little dark and serious for my tastes...

My favorite sci-fi film recently: Starship Troopers. Briefly, I regained some of my sense of wonder seeing this one; it was just sad that I had to be shocked into it. But I must admit, the violence had a way of drawing me in.

I'm sorry for rambling. I'll just shut up now. http://www.roguesquadron.net/forums/smile.gif

My opinion about the movie is that it is a very good movie. You see more about Anakin, and how he meet Obi wan and Qui gon. I always asked myself, what was happened before episode 4, 5 and 6? Know I have some answere's. And I will be very happy if I can see episode 2 and 3 on the picture! So I don't think episode 1 is crap! It is a good movie, and I don't listen to anybody else!

I liked The Empire Strikes Back the best. Just something about my personality, I guess, but I think it's more thrilling when the good guys are losing.

That, and I liked the music better. http://www.roguesquadron.net/forums/smile.gif

I had always liked ROTJ the best. Then I grew up, watched the trilogy again, and much to my surprise the Empire Strikes Back was a really amazing movie. It was done way better than the other two, the character development was extremely good, and I love it now.

My favorite 'moment' is still the final battle scene. I fast-forward ROTJ until I get there.

I like Return of the Jedi the best because of the final battle. I've always found it amusing when Darth Vader throws Emperor Palpatine in the hole.

However, I also like The Empire Strikes Back. I'm like Imaldi; I like it when the bad guy is winning. When I was 7 or 8, i used to always wanted Wild E. Cyote to eat the Road Runner (Meep Meep!) up.

Wile E. Coyote was the good guy. Here we have this poor starving coyote who just wants to eat, and this evil roadrunner who persists in sending our hero over cliffs and under big rocks. Death to the Roadrunner!

Although ROTJ is also my favorite..
it's probably because of its ending.
The ol' big bang with emotionality at the end.
I mean... Jabba's palace wasn't all that great, and all the crap in Cloud City... oooo..
but when it all ended, i still loved it most of all.


Imladil 12-01-1999 04:05 AM

Well, I've been gone a few days because of mouse technicalities...but as for this Imladil the Roadrunner thing, I can say:

MEEP! MEEP! (I don't know how to spell the tongue thing he does...maybe BLBLMBP!)

You'd have to CATCH the Roadrunner to do a positive ID on him, so good luck proving anything. http://www.roguesquadron.net/forums/wink.gif
