...that's the tenetive release date of Star Wars:Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. I was watching TRL this afternoon, and they showed the teaser trailer for this movie. I have to say, that after a 1-2 minute teaser, I'm fucking stoked for this flick. It'll sure as hell surpass the other two prequals, and from what I dug up on another forum, could rival the Empire Strikes back for best movie in the saga. If you missed the teaser, it's also premiering in the previews for the Incredibles(kinda like Monster's Inc. and Episode II). If I find it on the net, I'll link it(or if someone else finds it first)

Here's the link, it's a little old, I apologize.

Cmon Frodo, search button. You know better...wait, do you?

Anywho, I actually saw the trailer on TV. It looked good, though they didn't show much. There was a small clip showing Anakin forcing Obi-wan to direct his lightsaber towards himself. That, I liked.

You are the dumbest person alive. Not even George Lucas thinks that I bet. He's gone fucking nuts and butfucked his franchise, but even he knows the prequels don't come close to touching origianl trilogy.

i'm with spire on this. frodo, you seem like the type who is fascinated by shiny things.

i'm disenchanted. i can't even stand the special editions let alone the prequels. and even the cast is disappointed, just look at ewan and natalie's comments regarding the films.

It won't be as good as the middle 3.

There was a reason Lucas chose the middle 3 episodes to start with, because they were the most exciting/entertaining.

You make it sound as though he is still planning to do VII VIII and IX.

Just for the recond. George Lucas is not making them.

This is it, the last ever episode.

bob

maybe jasper's just being an optimist.

and narg, let's be realistic, it doesn't have half a chance of being the best if hayden christensen's in it. 'nuff said.

Spire
05-11-2004, 04:39 PM
While Lucas denies that he's planning on making VII, VIII, and IX, he also denied for 15 years that he was making I, II, and III. In a recent interview with Mark Hamill (you can actually download the clip of him saying it) he said that George Lucas asked him if he we like to star in Episodes VII, VIII, and IX. Hamill said sure, and asked when they'd be released and Lucas said "Oh, around 2011 or so."

bob
05-11-2004, 04:44 PM
hey, provided they do a better job with casting this time around, and provided lucas tries to stick to the EU canon rather than making up his own mumbo jumbo (the prequels almost killed me) then i'd be fine with it. no jar jars or haydens. ick.

Spire

We'll see. I personally hope they don't happen, since Lucas would just screw'em up. But I think Mark Hamill would know a bit more about it than you would.

I'm actually psyched for Episode III. It will certainly be much darker than the previous two episodes: of course, most people will agree that Episode V, the darkest of the entire Star Wars hexology, is the finest film in the series. Of course, because it's in a current pre-trilogy that has not succeeded in the older three, I'm not putting a lot of credit into it. But I will see it.

I doubt Lucas would be willing to make Episodes 7-9. If I were to want those done, I'd want the Zahn books - the Thrawn Trilogy - to be filmed (because those were the first books Lucas allowed in the Expanded Universe), and to be directed/produced/written by someone other than Lucas, though he would definitely have a major hand in it. And the old cast seems too old to make those films, and it would be a major media coup to see who would be cast as the new Luke, Han, Leia, etc.

Hazzle
05-11-2004, 08:34 PM
I personally reckon Revenge of The Sith (I refuse to use the episode numbers...it's tacky) has potential, at least in terms of plot. I reckon, given the storyline, it should be darker than even The Empire Strikes Back. I'm with DR entirely on this...which doesn't actually surprise me as DR is a man of immense intellect.

hellooooo! hayden christensen is the focus of the movie. let's be realistic about the movie's chances.

quoting dragonrat
if lucas actually did approach the original cast, chances are the movies are taking place in the NJO timeline (i know people don't like the njo) or he's going to make up his own shit.

GODDAMN I HATE LUCAS.

ok... i'm calm, very much controlled. and i actually read that lucas didn't want to do any more movies but he was showing interest in making a television serial... which is kinda tacky (star trek, anyone?)

Oh, that's even better. Listen, it's pretty much 100% impossible for Lucas to create something that can even come close to the original trilogy. He's lost it. If you honestly believe Episode III will be better than ESB, well, you have a complete and utter lack of taste. Thanks to the first two prequels, we already hate and have no interest in the characters, know that the dialogue will be atrocious, and that Lucas will once again whore out CG effects.

And don't use that guy as an excuse. "Who is more foolish? The fool, or the fool who follows him?"

I never said it would be better than ESB, I said it would RIVAL it, as in numero duo position in the saga. It's gonna be PG-13, which means an edgier story, fiercer battles, and the CGI looks absolutley stunning. No doubt this will be the best prequal, and it's getting high hopes from many. Don't knock it until you tried it Spire.

Fuck the doubters. It's easier to knock the movie than to actually look at the plot and realise the PLOT of this is actually FAR better than that to ESB with the completion of Anakin's fall to the Dark Side. True, there may be doubts over whether Lucas and this cast can actually execute it, but the plot must at least make one HOPE this will rival ESB. If not Lucas will have pissed over the part of the hexology that for me SHOULD be the best. Why not actually see the movie and hope, but not too highly...that'd be the smartest way to go.

bob

how does that work? ep 3 to ep5? it'd make more sense if you were comparing ep2 to ep5 but we all know what went wrong there (HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN) and saying that it would 'rival' ESB is suggesting that it has the potential to be better than it. stop implying that.

and i completely agree with spire. CG fx are for making unrealistic things more realistic, i don't know how lucas manages it but he seems to go in the opposite direction. and people keep blaming the stale performances on the dialogue. that's only 50% of the issue. the other 50% of utter wrongness came from the actor's performances. lucas interviews how many goddamn fucking blonde guys for the role of anakin, and he chooses the one who has potentially the least amount of chemistry with natalie portman?! it's ridiculous! but his plan worked - bored insipid teenage girls flocked to star wars like they never have before.

episode 3 has the potential to be the greatest one in the prequel trilogy, but the standard's not very high in the first place.

Bad news. Lucas signed merchandise contracts (mostly for toys) that require the film be rated PG. If it's anything else, he'll have his ass sued off and be breaking the law. Lucas just couldn't keep his greed in check.

but everyone knows what happens. the problem with this scenario is that it's been placed in the hands of an inexperienced or just plain incompetent actor. star wars fans don't watch the prequels because they want to know what happened before the trilogy (we know what happened) we want to see HOW it happened. we want it to unfold before us in a seemless manner like how the original trilogy unfolded before us.

but it's been a rocky ride.

and what ever happened to micro machines? where have they gone!?

I agree, that true star wars fans KNOW the story...and that it's about seeing how it plays out on the screen...which is where the other prequels fucked up...but you never know...he (I assume you mean Hayden) may surprise you.

bob
07-11-2004, 02:16 AM
yes, he might. and every optimist here was right in saying that we can't knock it if we haven't seen it. but i'd prefer to keep my expectations low. i went into Ep2 with high expectations, it was the first star wars film i actually frowned in.

bob
07-11-2004, 02:34 AM
but part of my dislike also has to do with the fact that lucas has broken away from what i expected the films to be. if you think about it, he says he's trying to emulate the style of the original trilogy but to make it suit it's contemporary audience. the original trilogy was camp given the fact that it was made during the 70s/80s. however the prequels are really camp even though they're recent.

then he says that he's marketing it at kids, just like the original trilogy was marketed at kids. if that's the case, then why is the humour less mature than that of the original trilogy? it's like he's dumbing down the prequels to suit with a dumber audience. i just don't get where he's going.

07-11-2004, 10:12 PM

Yeah, but it's not the same. Oh sure, I guess you can have a story involving the total annihilation of a race, the killing of a wife, and major lightsaber battles in a dark movie, just minus the killing, annihilating, and killing, and add in sing-a-long songs. I'm sure it'l still be good.

bob
08-11-2004, 12:49 AM
you'll note that it's all about the lack of blood. you can have a high artillery shoot 'em up frenzy for an M-rating, it's just that there's a distinct lack of blood. but you don't need violence to make a film dark... most violent films aren't that dark anyway. thrillers take a better and more subtle route than horror/action.

and star wars deaths are always so camp in the first place. i feel more sympathy for the starfighter pilots who go down screaming, rather than the jedi who get cut down. look at AOTC, that major battle on genosha was so goddamn camp that i wasn't sure i wanted the jedi to win. i was disappointed by both sides. and jango fett met a storybook ending, it was lame. i'm starting to think that lucas makes the major armies a) droids b) aliens c) clone troops - just so that he can save the effort of actually orchestrating a fight and instead just paints it all out in CG.

did i mention i hate lucas? and i think i'm one of the few people who finds a hyperactive yoda very annoying. i always imagined his fighting style to be more subdued to show how he was in control. instead he's like a rabid puppy jumping for snacks.

but as for ROTS:
reckon padme's gonna get murdered, have an accident, or die after giving birth?
or do you reckon she's gonna live and her death won't be chronicled in the movies?

OK, this is targeted at owners of the "trilogy": What did you guys think about the featurette on the making-of Episode III?

I thought it was very informative about the plot, the re-making of Darth Vader's helmat, and the fact that Hayden will wear the suit, not someone else like in the trilogy. Also, the final fight between Aniken and Obi-Wan will rule-even with the green screen production clip in the making-of, it still looks great. Can't wait until May.

You see the transformation of Anakin and Palpatine(who needs some toothpaste), as well as see Natalie crying(makes me a sad panda). My favorite part was when Mace Windu and 4 of his "friends" busts into Palpatine's room

Mace-"You're under arrest, Chancellor."
Palpatine- "Are you threatening me, Master Jedi?"
cue bad-ass mofo.
