I gotta be honest here: I, for a long time, loathed Star Wars.  I hated the 'original' trilogy from back in the '70s.  Still do, never watch them.

I do have a small soft spot for Phantom Menace.  Like it quite a bit.

Only Star Wars I like.

I saw George Lucas announce that last night on the Scream Awards.

I don't know if anybody else caught the segment, but they did a homage to Darth Vader as on the film history's "ultimate villains." I was like, cool, I can go along with such an iconic selection. Then they had some guy dressed as Darth come out to accept the award, with GL walking up behind him. The segment really annoyed me. They had George "I hate you all but see my next mangling of Star Wars" Lucas essentiall b***h-slap the character of Darth Vader around, as if to say "I'm in charge, now go see Star Wars in 3D."

Yes, I know a***ole. We all know it's your creation and you can do whatever you want to with it. You've made that abundantly clear. But do you really have to continue to spit on the fans that made you as rich as you are? I don't remember who said it here recently, but he/she made the comparison of GL to a person who has become addicted to plastic surgery, and no matter how more progressively ridiculous the person becomes and how many family members and friend tell him/her "look, you have to stop this, you're making yourself look more and more freakish and horrid," he just can't stop himself.

Amen to that.

There would have to be way too much they'd have have to change plot wise for me to even consider even being near a theater that is playing it.

I prefer going to see American Graffiti in the Retro Cinema at Movie Tavern.
Hell, I'd take Howard the Duck over Star Wars.

Well first off I agree that Lucas is a douche! I don't know why Episode I is being re-released in 3D, and I don't know for the life of me why it would be anyone's favorite Star Wars movie. When I was a kid I lived for Star Wars. But between the damn fanboys that ruin it for the rest of us, the crappy prequels and constant special editions and repackaging, I'm about ready to wash my hands of the whole damn thing! GL also had to do that last Indy film istead of leaving well enough alone. JJ Abrhams had to go ruin Star Trek and now there's an F'N remake of The Thing. Stop it Hollywood! Just Stop it! Stop p**sing on my childhood. Take your A-Team remake and your Smurfs movie and your scab Kiss and shove it so far up your ass you choke and die!

All the Star Wars flicks are being re-released in 3D.  I'm assuming they're just going in order, from Episode 1 to part 6.

I have never seen any of the SW prequels at all. Whether that's a good or a bad thing, I don't know.  Question

I enjoy 3-D, but I'm not a fan of taking old movies and converting them to 3-D.  This is exactly what they did with the dreaded "colorization" process back in the 1980s.  What's next, 3-D CITIZEN KANE?

It's a good thing. Very, very good. Please do us a favor, Trevor. Don't see them. We must round up all who have not seen these movies and have them tell their children, and their children's children not to see those prequels. You must make those movies fade from everyone's memories and erase it from time. Help us Trevor, you're our only hope.

Yeah, don't bother. I allowed myself to get suckered into seeing them when they were released. The first one was perfectly understandable. Everybody was excited. "Wow, Episodes 1 through 3. Finally we get so see everything that happened before." So I saw it, there were some vaguely decent aspects to it, Darth Maul was pretty cool, but right away I should have seen the writing on the wall. Jar Jar alone should have been indication enough.

There there was Ep. 2 and 3. I have no excuse other than I felt like I had to. It's kind of like filling in bricks in a wall. You can't just leave those last two bricks laying there, can you? So that's how it goes. That's how he got us.

But, you know, I also remember that there were people that knew the prequels were going to suck. I remember all the hype about Ep 1, and on The Daily Show, as it was leading up to the premeire, they had a running bit called "Countdown to Letdown." But I will admit, I succumbed to the ether.

It's okay to like an unpopular movie. Hell, I liked The Boondock Saints and its sequel.
