    I may well be the only male over 40 in the Western hemisphere who really doesn't give a flying ferk about Stir Warts. Not sure why this is. Anyway, enjoy the day. Seriously.

    Nahh. I am 46 and although a couple of them were pretty good, a couple of them were not very good, and if I see they are on tv, I skip right over them. I think there may be one or two of them that I've never seen all the way through.

    I recently got and watched the blu-ray set. Lots of interesting extras, especially the deleted scenes for ep4. But god what abominations the prequels were.

    Does the Galactic Empire make good bikes?

    I expected the Rocky Mountains to be a little rockier than this.

    I was thinking the same thing. That John Denver's full of $hit, man.

    Rep'd. I too are a nerd, proudly so.

    Though I do agree with Patton Oswalt's sentiment that if he could go back in time, the first thing he'd do is kill George Lucas with a shovel right after RotJ, so as to keep him from making the prequels.

    I got the Bluray set yesyerday at a music store closing sale....

    The prequels were a crime, such a great potential, and Lucas effed it up totally.
    Maybe Peter Jackson could redo them all.

    but that would rob of us these cinematic wonders!















    plus, what wold geeks argue about if it werent for the "han shot first!" debacle? you can only argue about star wars vs star trek so much.

    i cant prove it, but im pretty sure he is responsible for this as well:

    Every year or two I'll watch the whole series straight through. They get worse in comparison every time.

    What's sad is that they could have been amazingly better if he'd only done a few things differently:

    1) No whiny Annakin, at any age
    2) Had someone else write the dialog (Don't look at me like that. Why? It makes me uncomfortable.)
    3) Made Annakin sort of a cool, reckless bad boy, which would have given Padme a reason for falling in love with him. As it is, there's nothing.
    4) No Jar Jar

    One of the biggest problems with the prequels (and with ROTJ), is there's no Han Solo factor ... no one cynical to balance all the hokey force stuff. And I include ROTJ because he'd gone soft by then.

    RotJ is better than the prequels, though. And could've been great, if they'd stuck with the original idea of having the natives be Chewbacca's ppl, rather than cutesy and uber-marketable 'teddy bears'.

    *pause*

    Yeah, okay, you have a point. Just thinking about Ewoks makes me want to kill George Lucas with a shovel.
