How I realized I was over Star Wars completely

Postby Rollo Tomassi » Fri May 09, 2008 7:19 pm

The Clone Wars Trailer came out today.

I did not realize there was a Clone Wars Theatrical Movie being released.

While my boss was watching it, I glanced at it for about 5 seconds, then shrugged my shoulders and said...

"Meh."

Theatrical trailer? I thought it was supposed to be a TV show.

Clone Wars looks awesome. You can all suck my nuts.

But judging by the fact that two of you had no idea they were making this movie, and that it's coming out in three months, I'd say they'd better step up the marketing soon.
Shit. I can't think of a good signature.

For you? Of course!

But not for the other fuckers. They can all choke on my hairy taint.

My wife just pointed out that the trailer was on the main page of Yahoo, so we watched it. I'm going to agree with Rollo's assessment of "Meh."

I was beyond even assessing the "meh-ness" of the trailer. I just don't care anymore.

It looks bad. Really bad.

Among other things, Anakin's supposed to have a padawan who's somehow not around anymore in ROTS but it isn't addressed. She's eleven, but dresses like a whore.

Dooku and Anakin duel at least once, somewhat undermining the dialogue of ROTS.

Asajj Ventress marks her fifteenth return from the dead. Seriously, that bitch should join the X-Men.

And Anakin and his underaged whore padawan must go to Tatooine (major problems with Anakin returning there, wouldn't you think?) to rescue Jabba's son, who's never been mentioned before in any source, from the Confederation.

Does the word "clusterfuck" mean anything to you?

Can I join the "meh" club?

Nothing about that trailer impressed me. The thing that bothers me most is the video game-style animation. It's so distracting. And I still hate Anakin's padawan. I might still see it, but it's not guaranteed that I'll like it.

Does that mean I'm over "Star Wars"? No way. I'm still looking forward to "The Force Unleashed" video game.
Good. Bad. I'm the guy with the gun.

She never once returned from the dead, as far as I know. She just kept getting beat, with her whereabouts unknown, but then returning.

Returning to his old haunts wasn't really a major problem, if I remember, until the book Dark Lord, in which he decided he shouldn't do it anymore because of emotional reasons (after he flipped shit at the Jedi Temple). And Jabba having a son, I don't think that's too big of a deal. I mean, they don't mention Jar Jar or Kit Fisto in the OT, but that doesn't mean they weren't around earlier.
Shit. I can't think of a good signature.

They don't mention Rotta the Hutt in ANY pre-existing EU, either. You'd think Jabba's heir would've been his son, not his father. Or his son might've had it in for Han Solo.

Anakin making multiple trips back to Tatooine strikes me as a major, major issue in characterization, though.

I knew Rotta was created for this, I guess I should've said "Jar Jar and Kit Fisto weren't in the OT or any other EU." But what's wrong with having new characters? I read somewhere that Jabba said he had no children (which is why Zorba was his heir, or whatever), but something could have happened to Rotta between the Clone Wars and ROTJ.

What's wrong with Anakin going to Tatooine, though?
Shit. I can't think of a good signature.
