Topic: Why did GL make episode III funny?

Why did GL give battle droids a personality for episode III?  I think that it was because he wanted to lighten the depressing mode.  It makes perfect sense for a comedian but not for a SW geek like myself

Re: Why did GL make episode III funny?

I hate how the droids are in ROTS. Their voices are horrible.

Re: Why did GL make episode III funny?

Oh i hate that, the droids weren't even droids any more, I think one reason is because the droids got smarter by the end of the war, these were those smarter droids with slight ability to think on their own

Re: Why did GL make episode III funny?

no that can't be it because i think the TF were smart enough to memory wipe there droids now and then

Re: Why did GL make episode III funny?

I agree, the droids were lame and I thought it took away from the quality of the film.

Re: Why did GL make episode III funny?

The whole   "giving droids personality" thing did ruin the droids in the movies.....one thing i regret on SW....

Re: Why did GL make episode III funny?

Yeah, they were much better in Episode 1 & 2. But I have to admit, I like the part when the droids moan when they get hurt...........but it's much cooler when they dont say anything when they die either, I guess

Re: Why did GL make episode III funny?

I don't really like them but I didn't direct the film. Nothing we could have done I suppose

Re: Why did GL make episode III funny?

I didn't  like it when the droids were making fun of R2-D2. They said "stupid little astro droid!" now what kinda droid would make fun of another droid? Huh? Then when R2 bursted them into flames, I said "That's what you get!" big_smile

I think that was one of the funnier parts in the movie. It got a chuckle out of me...

Re: Why did GL make episode III funny?

The droids are hysterical!! I LOVED the part where the SBDs were making fun of R2... My four friends and I were the only people laughing though...

Re: Why did GL make episode III funny?

I agree

The only good part was when R2 zapped the SBD and the droid kicked R2

Re: Why did GL make episode III funny?

Yes, the personality in the droids make them look like fools. In TPM, the droids were cold blooded killing machines. But now, they aren't being took seriously because of it. Although, it is a tiny uplifter. hmm

Re: Why did GL make episode III funny?

No, because in TPM the droids had all those stupid bugs like "uh oh""Roger Roger""Uh..We uh... you're under arrest" and could be taken out with one shot and i fail to see how they captured Naboo without the super battle droid.  The only things really cooler than the super battle droids were the IG-100's.  Supers could be killed with a direct stab of a lightsaber and not much else and does anyone else think the Flanneled one had a glitch when he called the Grevious boddygaurds IG-100 and 2 decades later the IG-88's are built?

Re: Why did GL make episode III funny?

TPM was ok,
Jar-Jar and Anakin were damn annoying but all in all it was ok.

AOTC was good
The REALLY stupid jokes were more than stupid though.

ROTS was Mega Crap
Too many stupid jokes. R2-D2 says "Uh Oh" WTF!?!?!
It was slow and everyone already knew the end. Yoda's Stupid fight with Palpy was completely unneccessary and stupid....

Re: Why did GL make episode III funny?

Droids, we're talking about droids and GL making ep. 3 funny.

Not whether or not we liked ROTS

Let's return to the topic if anyone has anything else to say. Otherwise, as I've said before, "Start another topic about it"
