Here is a page with lots of pictures, that amounts to a complete rundown/spoiler for the upcoming Star Wars movie.

It looks pretty sorry to me - but don't get me wrong, I'll still probably watch it.

How can it be spoiled? We all know what's going to happen... or do we?

(and I can't get through that link, what's the deal?

Well, we know the end result more or less, but we don't know the method of the madness. This movie seems to drop a few threads from the second, plus there's a major inconsistency I can think of (perhaps a bigger fan could think of more).

Also, there's lots of pictures! The link works fine for me.

My expectations are seriously low, after the last two Star Wars epics. It won't take much to improve upon them, but I'm not expecting anything other than another lame video game posing as a film, with a few cool effects thrown in.

Maybe it won't suck.


Doubtfully,

I've never met anyone who liked the new Star Wars movies, or anyone who hasn't seen them. Perhaps this says something about childhood brand implanting.

link works here at work. I wonder why I was denied access earlier?

Anyway, yeah, that pretty much does spoil it, or whatever little there would have been to spoil. Are a lot of the picture links broken for everyone else, or is it just me?

That link didn't work for me, either. Try this one.

I've never seen any star wars. Of course I know everything that happens. I would have seen it, but I got freaked out by the alien bar scene. I know the new ones are bad, but it'll be interesyting to see how vader went evil. (That's the whole point) which ones are worth seeing?

You should really see the first three, Cos, especially Star Wars and Empire Strikes Back - which is generally considered the best of all of them, though it does have a cliffhanger ending. So you have to see Jedi, too, which is mostly good (features Jabba the Hut, as well as Princess Leia scantily clad, hubba hubba) but also features the annoying-as-hell Ewoks.

But the originals really are great fun, because the cast was just right, there were actually well-constructed screenplays for each one (gasp!) and re-watching them again recently (I bought the box set) just confirmed how poor the new ones are by comparison.

I prefer the evil Vader to his earlier, pre-evil Hayden Christensen incarnation.

wow, a living human being that hasn't seen Star Wars! I'm slightly shocked.

Cos, you should watch them all, in sequence. Just before Ep. 3 comes out, watch one and two (Phantom Menace; Attack of the Clones), then go see 3 (Revenge of the Sith). When you get back, watch 4-6 (Star Wars/A New Hope; Empire Strikes Back; Return of the Jedi).
You'll then be the first person ever to see the whole series in its numerical sequence for the first time. I'd be curious about your opinions at that point....

(now, if only I could find someone who didn't even know about Star Wars to begin with.....)

So... what's this Star Wars thing you guys are talking about? Is it another new reality television show with over-the-hill actors and actresses battling each other for one more shot at fame and fortune?

Hamano, you shouldn't tease me. You should know that American fanboys can be rather... dangerous.... especially when it comes to Star Wars. I know perfectly well that you know just as much about Star Wars as Cosplayer does (if not more; you, at least, were alive and probably in North America for the original release).
However... if you were somehow able to shield your children..... hmmm, yes.... one child.... that should suffice for my experiment..... yes..... Do you lock your doors every night, Hamano? It seems rather excessive, doesn't it? Hmm, yes...

I'll see it just so that I've seen them all, but I'd still like to beat George Lucas with a text on how to write dialogue and a dead dog.

There are books on how to write dead dogs? I would have thought that would be one of the easier things to write...

Hehehe! Maybe he meant that George Lucas is beating a dead dog, or that Star Wars has become a dead dog, or...

I guess I'm one of the few that don't think the new movies are worse than crap, or the older ones are made of gold. I had problems with the writing and characters of the first three and I have similar problems with these last two. I personally don't think that George Lucas is all that great to begin with. I watch it all because I like scifi. Pure and simple.

I didn't say this as flame bait. I just wanted to show that there's a differing opinion.

Hey, that's not a "differing opinion"... more like the prevailing consensus, isn't it?

Um, I'm quite sure he meant he'd like to beat George Lucas with a dead dog. Or maybe it's possible he meant, Lucas is beating a dead dog with these new films (as opposed to a dead horse). Either way, he may be hearing from the Dead Dog Anti-Defamation League, which would like people to know it's clientelle can write better scripts than Phantom Menace.

Woof.

Can we blame Phantom Menace on the "Gungans" then>?
