Re: When Did Your Fettish Start?
I'm not a huge fan of Star Wars. I like it but I'm one of those people that think George Lucas ruined it with all the CG animations. Most of all by adding Jar Jar Whatever into the story. I'm not really obsessed or anything but I do collect. I'm still a kid at heart. Boba Fett was my favorite character from the moment I first saw him in "Episode V". I'm nearly 30 now but I remember seeing it on opening night when we lived in Germany. My parents bought me plenty of Boba Fett toys back then. They have them stored at their house along with all my other old Star Wars toys. I started collecting Boba Fett items again about 10 years ago when Star Wars first starting comming back on the scene. It was a good time to start because with the re-release of the orginal movie, and the start of Episodes I, II, III, there were, and still are, plenty of new toys and such to buy. I buy just about anything I can find. I even bought the little Boba Fett Burger King was selling last year. Since then I've added statues, jewerly, and more toys. Last night I bought a bobble head on Ebay. I've been planning on getting the skull from his armor for a tattoo. I saw one in the special edition of "Dawn of the Dead". The 2004 version. If you watch the news reels that aren't in the actual movie there is a scene where they are in a morgue interviewing a doctors. The zombie on the table that grabs one of the doctors has the skull tattoo on his shoulder. There are still a couple of statues I need to add to my collection and a painting or two. Those are the more pricey items. The Gentle Giants statues that I already have are my favorites. I'm looking forward to getting the bobble head too.
Explain why the CGI ruins Star Wars
The CG looks too fake. The original movies were just fine without it (of course they didn't even have it at the time) andwhen the re-releases had CG added many people shared my opinion. They even mocked it on an episode of SouthPark. They added CG to an older episode that kina poked fun at what Lucas did in his movies. He was not very happy. The movies are rediculously awesome to watch but somehow all the CG seems to make the visuals seem less believable. I mean that's what watching Sci-Fi is all about....knowing it's not real but being able to imagine that it is. Jar Jar might have been less annoying if he hadn't been 100% CG. I guess people that are close to my age and older appreciate the original moves a little more because they were made without all the technology that exists today. It's not that I think CG just totaly sucks. I just don't like it when a movie depends on it. Too much CJ makes a movie look generic.
