LOL! Now that's funny!


Peace is a lie, there is only passion.

Through strength I gain power,
Through power I gain victory,
Through victory my chains are broken,
The force shall free me...

Have you ever heard of people from the UK who speak Gaelic or Welsh? Or have you ever actually been in contact with anyone who spoke a foreign language?

Have you ever seen a Star Wars movie with Yoda in it?

I think the language thing is hindered by the repetitiveness more than anything else, this is after all the SW Universe, it's expected.

JarJar is annoying and I would never tire of punching his face in but I can live with him being in TPM, I like the movie but agree that it is the poorest of the lot.

It depends, it could make the movie less annoying.

Well, one could argue that if Jar Jar hadn't been there, somebody else would have taken his place, and Palpatine could have influenced them to do his will, giving the same result (though with Jar Jar's buffoonery, it was probably pretty darn easy this way!).

I agree, Mas Ameeda could have voted him the emergency powers since he offered the idea anyway, besides I still wonder why he is counted as an "evil" senator....

Have you seen the OT? ROTJ kind of answers your question. Also, he was

spoiler:
the dark lord of the sith. You know - darth sidious - the guy count dooku worked for. The guy that made nute gunrey turn on the naboo.


how much more do you need? He was the "evil" senator for a reason.

If you ignore Jar-Jar, and Jake Lloyd, PTM isn't that bad. But unforunately both of them take up alot of screen time. Hayden Christian is still bad but not as bad and Jake Lloyd.

It was a big mistake not giving Darth Maul at least another couple of scenes in my opinion.

Too much politics and talking, since I remember GL saying the point of the OT was to run like you could put it on mute and still know what's going on- that's a pretty overlooked mistake in the prequels.

I still accept them as part of the SW universe and absolutely despise people who constantly moan and complain about them but you can't deny they have serious flaws as Star Wars movies.

*What sith_master2000 wants too do to Jar Jar Binks*

MELT IT DOWN

BLAST IT WITH A ROCKET LAUNCHER

HACK AT IT WITH A CHAINSAW

TORCH IT WITH A FLAMETHROWER

BLAST IT WITH A CANNON

Yes I'm happy now!
Quite possibly fifty fu**ing times better.What a tw*t he turned out to be.

Did you really have to bump a 6 months old thread to say that ?

Actually I'm a bit glad he did. While his comment above didn't add anything we hadn't heard already, now we can finally see Jar Jar in light of the entire Saga.

I think we can agree he was annoying. His small role in Episodes II and III wasn't bad. I wonder if Lucas actually had his role in the rise of the Empire planned or just made it that way to stick it to fans ("after all, without Jar Jar your precious classic trilogy would never have happened, so ha!"). Despite what George likes to say about having this all planned in advance, you can see him making things up as he goes along even back in the first trilogy, so it would not surprise me at all.

I'm glad they didn't try to make Jar Jar the reason Anakin turned to the Dark Side, though I did read a hilarious send-up of just that thing happening in a Darth Holliday parody on soulofthejedi.com.
