Ditto to that. Lucas lost the plot when he wrote Ep I to III. But it's all about the money. If he wanted to do more films why didn't he start them with Luke passing the torch onto another young novice who had to prove themselve in a time of turmoil, at least then things would have tied together more easily.
Very funny, I'll have to read Mr T vs C3PO but I might die laughing
"You're Next"? That sounds rather ominous....
He knows I'm a writer so I guess it's "I'm next" to have my 15 minutes of fame
Boba hands down, simply because he out-lived Jango in far harsher conditions. Remember Boba took on Vader and survived, that's pretty good considering Vader killed far more Jedi than Jango ever did.
A lot of people thought I was a guy for a while. That was pretty funny.
Well it is a kinda boyish name, but hey apparently Mel is too
Re: What misconceptions of Star Wars did you have as a kid? (107 replies, posted in Film and Television)
Speaking of The Empire Strikes Back, when I was in High School they had the 20th Anniversary Editions on in the cinemas. Me and one of my friends had a personal joke running on the bit where Vader says, "No Luke, I am your father." We shouted out: "Another reason for birth control" and cracked up the whole crowd.
But anyway my confusion as a kid was why Leia had to be Luke's sister, surely the hero always got the girl
See they never would have done that, Obi basically embodies goodness. Mace however was supposed to have a sabre style that was very close to using the dark side of the Force. I believe it was mentioned in the novelisation of Ep III.
Actually all the Star Wars movies start in space with ships flying around. It's like a trade mark.
My fav would be the Boba Fett print I have that's signed by both the artist and Jeremy. It says:
He was so nice too
Hmm, I think that's called lack of imagination on Lucas's part. But anyway, yeah there are a lot of similarities. I mean you look at ROTJ when Luke cuts off Vader's hand, you can see at that point he realises he's heading down the same path as his father and he's determined for that not to happen. I think Luke's upbring in a galaxy of turmoil taught him the importance of being a good person, while Anakin who had been a slave was only drawn to power.
Xmen are always good. When I was in High School I used their comic art to inspire me to do a strip of comic art. Then the damn cockroaches ate the paint on its return from being marked. Was not happy.
Anyway there was this awesome pic in one of the comics of Wolverine in the rain at night with his shirt ripped, claws out ready to attack an on-coming motor bike. It was awesome.
Hmm let's see: Get Smart, Hello Hello, Inspector Gadget, Ducktails, Astroboy, I Dream of Jeanie, Danger Mouse, Hogan's Heros and You Can't Do That On Television. We favs of mine when I was a kid.
Oh and one of the more recent ones was Father Ted. That show was so funny. Especially Father Jack.
I have most of the older novels, I think I've only got one of the New Order. The last book I bought was Dark Lord: The Rise of Darth Vader, before that I bought and read the MedStar books. Besides most of my books are in boxes at the moment. Moving will do that
I dunno, I kinda lost interest in the books with Leia, Han and Luke. Luke was interesting enough but the other two got really boring after a while. Though I did enjoy the Han Solo Trilogy.
And clearly I need to read it again too, because I could have sworn the cannon stuck out of his chest....
It was his head. I re-read a bit of Slave Ship and I'd forgotten a fair bit of it, so don't worry Chrys, you not the only one
I think the only one he's have probs with is Mr T. But then all Boba would need is a large magnet
I think you can get it on computer and Xbox as well. I'm sure it hit all the consoles. I have it for PS2 but I also saw it on Gamecube and I think on Xbox.
Yeah the scream is so wrong. But then the flirting with Rystall is too. Ah they should have just left him how he was. There were many possible reasons why Boba's voice could have been different - synthesizer, accident etc.
I also noticed you can tell when it's Jeremy acting and when it's not. Jeremy just has Fett's moves down so well. He was right to say "He's slow, but he's fast" it's so true!
Is Darth Vader in here I swear I heard him
dose anyone remember the story about Boba's last hunt? the person writing it never finshed it i dont think
That was me. I haven't really had a chance to write anymore due to wedding stuff. I hope to finish off a few stories once I get back from the honeymoon and I have more time
Yeah there are some of us who are still on dial-up and adding more graphics would slow the snail response time even more
Hmm hard to tell. I think Kast could use Sing's anger against her. Mind you Sing's pretty good with her lighsabre. I'll go Kast, he did pretty well against Fett before dying.
Mace was leaning dangerously close to the Dark Side. But you also have to remember that they were in the heat of battle and to leave an enemy alive at your back would be a fatal mistake.
