Topic: Does SW Clone Wars rate higher then the SW Christmas Special?

I've heard a number of people say they weren't impressed with the Clone Wars movie. Now on a scale of things being bad in the SW universe the Christmas Special has to be the benchmark in bad. Do you think Clone Wars was better than the Christmas Special or do you think it ranks right down there with it?

(I am yet to see the Clone Wars, from what I've heard I'm not missing anything)

Oh, the Holiday Special is sooo much worse. I doubt anything could top that one.

I have to agree. The Clone Wars was pathetic, but the Holiday Special was horrific.

LOL big_smile Even though I have not seen the Clone wars, I doubt that there could be a Star Wars project worse than the holiday special big_smile (which I have seen and can happily say that it is not even that bad that it is good, it is just awful) and even though Boba was in it the animation was truly terrible.

Re: Does SW Clone Wars rate higher then the SW Christmas Special?

yes, the animation wasn't the greatest, but that is the only thing i have ever watched from the SWHS. Clone Wars may not be the greatest, but i agree that it is better than the holiday special.

According to Rotten Tomatoes.com th critics like the holiday special better yikes


The holiday special gets 43% while clone wars gets 18%. Though there are more reviews for clone wars.


However a good movie like Empire Strikes Back goes and gets almost 100% on that site so go watch that over Clone Wars or HS.

I really enjoyed the holiday special.

take it easy baby take it as it comes

Re: Does SW Clone Wars rate higher then the SW Christmas Special?

I liked the animation in the holiday special, but the rest of the live action was pretty pathetic. I'll take a guess and say this new one was better, mind you before I've seen it.

Umm...i haven't seen the holiday special...some may call this a blessing. I liked the Clone Wars yes the plot was pretty flimsy but the action sequences were great I must say. After everything I have heard about the holiday special I would say the Clone Wars ranks higher in my book than the Holiday Special.

Oh, but you simply must see the Holiday Special! No one's life is complete until they see it.

Re: Does SW Clone Wars rate higher then the SW Christmas Special?

The only things I DID like about the holiday special were Chewbacca and the introduction of Boba Fett other than that forget it! I have not seen it yet but I suspect The Clone Wars is better regardless of what rottentomatoes.com says. My opinion seldom goes along with the critics.

Re: Does SW Clone Wars rate higher then the SW Christmas Special?

WTF, I think trolls are simply rating the film Clone Wars incredibly low scores without even seeing the movie... not saying it was phenomenal or anything... but not that terrible. hmm

That is like me as well. This is why I no longer read film reviews.

Yea same with me. Some films that I hate with a passion, the critics love; and movies that I loved to death, the critics burn at the stake.

Re: Does SW Clone Wars rate higher then the SW Christmas Special?

The movies critics like usually seem to be pretencious, drawn out, and freaking boring. Don't always go by what reviewers say.

We can't blame movie critiques they have the authority to criticize whatever the flaws of a movie. Just like they did in AotC.
