Re: Who HATES Jar Jar Binks?

I always thought that monkey thing of Jabba's was more annoying. I think his name's Salicious Crumb or something.

You can at least ignore Jar Jar.
But yea, every once in a while I've thought of dangling him over a sarlacc pit and slowly lowering him in over a period of 24 hours dangling him upside down.

Re: Who HATES Jar Jar Binks?

I have learned to completely to tune annoying people out. That is quite useful in school.

Re: Who HATES Jar Jar Binks?

I do not hate him, I just do not think that he belongs in Star Wars.

Re: Who HATES Jar Jar Binks?

I think they should've had a scene in ROTS just before Obi-Wan gets off the ship to see Anakin and to fight him.

It goes a little something like this (Jar-Jar is strangely aboard as well)

Obi-Wan - I'm worried, I think I may have to kill Anakin

Jar-Jar - Noosa Obi-wan You cannae kill annie!

Obi-Wan - I'm sorry Jar-Jar

Jar-Jar  -  Dasa Better!

(Obi-Wan ignites his lightsaber and cuts Jar-Jar in half. He then throws his lightsaber and destroys C-3PO.)

Obi-Wan - No... Dasa Better Jar-Jar....

Re: Who HATES Jar Jar Binks?

My problem with Jar Jar Binks is not just that he's immensely annoying and behaves like a cretin even in the most serious situations, but that the majority (prehaps all) of Jar Jar's humour comes from the fact that he's a bit thick and doesn't speak 'the Queen's English'. Now, I'm not usually a great supporter of political correctness, but this seems a little too 1920s even for me.. it has the stench of a racial caricature.

I don't think I'd have any trouble with this if Jar Jar had been put to good use or hadn't been so exaggerated. But he didn't appear to have any purpose other to be annoying. I'm sure greater geeks than I will be able to point out his true reason for being part of the storyline, but I think that he could have been left out or replaced by a smarter Gungan with no damage to the story.

Re: Who HATES Jar Jar Binks?

I wonder what happens to him in the time skip (dark times)?

Re: Who HATES Jar Jar Binks?

I guess this makes me a geek, but Jar Jar was put in so that more famlies would watch it, ergo, Lucas would make more money.

Re: Who HATES Jar Jar Binks?

in my opinion, jar jar is the reason the prequel trilogy doesnt own the original trilogy. jar jar gets in the way, ruins the story, THINKS ITS A GOOD IDEA TO GIVE A SITH LORD "EMERGENCY POWERS" WHICH END UP SPELLING CHAOS FOR THE GALAXY, and other things.

Re: Who HATES Jar Jar Binks?

Jar Jar wasn't a good view of the rest of the Gungan population, if anyone remembers he had been banished, meaning his own people didn't like him too much. The rest of the Gungans weren't really that stupid.

As for his point in the movies....
- It's his bumbling that brings Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan to Otah Gunga where they get to Theed in time to save Padme from going to a camp, without that they'd have wandered the planet for a very long time. Remember, the fastest way to Theed from Otah Gunga was through the planet's core, indicating that Qui and Obi were on the opposite side of the planet and on their own could never have found Theed in time, and wouldn't be likely to find Otah Gunga without Jar Jar's help.

- Yes Anakin was following Padme and Qui-Gon from Watto's Shop, but without the distraction of Jar Jar getting in trouble would he have caught up to them?

- Padme needed an army. She had no army. Jar Jar said the Gungans have an army. Without Jar Jar saying that, Padme wouldn't have thought to ask the Gungans for help. And therefore wouldn't have had an army to fight the Trade Federation with and therefore wouldn't have got back Naboo.

- Jar Jar led them to the Gungan's hiding place. Without Jar Jar to lead they wouldn't have found the Gungans to ask them for a help, and as I said above, they wouldn't have gotten Naboo back.

- Yes Jar Jar was clumsy during the battle but he did manage to take out several droids and a tank. More than some Gungans did that day.

- Also, yes, he helped give emergancy powers to a Sith Lord, however he had no idea Palpatine was a sith, no one knew. So I wouldn't blame Jar Jar for his lack of knowledge, and besides he was pushed into it. Without Padme there, and a crises brewing, and Palpatine and the others whining that they needed Padme's help, and Jar Jar being in her place for the time being, what else was he to do? He didn't know what else to do, it was a lack of training as well as a lack of smartness, it wasn't his fault. We could blame all the senators who voted yes, if it comes to that.

Re: Who HATES Jar Jar Binks?

lol nicely argued miba. it seems jar jars clumsiness has made him a powerful leader on the battlefield, as demonstrated in episode 1, and a headstrong senator, as demonstrated in episode 2. for these great acts, i award jar jar the "gustavo nobel prize", and he is the first person i've ever awarded this too. actually i just made it up right now....

one could say that jar jars career has been....inspirational. HAHAHA omfg everything i just said was sarcastic, but i guess he did help out from time to time.

Re: Who HATES Jar Jar Binks?

I sort of sympathize with Jar-Jar because I'm a klutz.

Re: Who HATES Jar Jar Binks?

I wouldn't hate his as much if he just wasn't so stupid! AND they somehow managed to throw him into all three movies...He's not that bad, but he can be quite annoying sometimes.

Re: Who HATES Jar Jar Binks?

Apparently some people felt Jar Jar had a racist slant because of his oddball pseudo-Jamaican speech. I've been around Jamaican people, and I thought their accent was COOL not irritating like Jar Jar.
There's a bit about the racism issue on Jar Jar's Wookiepedia page.

Re: Who HATES Jar Jar Binks?

oh yeah i heard about that.

Re: Who HATES Jar Jar Binks?

ya know, if jar jar didn't speak english (or basic as it's called in other parts of the galaxy) i really wouldn't have minded him at all.  for all we know, chewie could have been saying some of the dumbest crap in the world, but because all we heard was "graaaaawwwwwl," he was one of the coolest cats in the original trilogy.  but because we could more or less understand the moron babbletalk coming out of his mouth, that made jarjar more of a bumble*edit*.  his idiot antics wouldn't have pained me nearly so much watching episode one if i just couldn't have understood what he was saying. 

i think i may rip my epi 1 dvd sometime and redub his dialogue, just take what he says now and run it backwards or something.
