    I have to say, I find a planetfull (or moonfull, if you prefer) of Ewoks about as annoying as one single Jar-Jar.

    Of course, that means INCREDIBLY annoying! :mad:

    Nah, the Ewoks were fine for me, although I sincerely doubt the reality of them being able to build those catapults in like... 4 hours. Wookies, I could understand (seeing as that is what the Ewoks were intended to be but had to be cut due to budget/time constraints). And they may be annoying, but not NEARLY as annoying as Jar-Jar Binks. At least they didn't speak like a 3 year old with an oversized tongue.

    RotJ is still my favorite for the three simultaneous epic battles going on at the end.

    Blades - I completely agree with you on the old trilogy, and utterly disagree with you on the new one :p

    Phantom was bad, but Clones was so much worse. Bear in mind I was never a great fan of Star Wars, the only reason I thought I was at one time is because of Empire Strikes Back. But Clones was so badly written, so badly acted, so badly directed... even the much-hyped CG effects were mostly unimpressive and downright awful in parts. And who thought that turning that action scene in the factory into a stupid platform video game was a good idea? There were signs of bad writing all over the old trilogy, but Clones conclusively proved that Lucas just cannot write, not good stories and most certainly not good dialogue. It's up there as one of the worst movies I have seen (good contender for #1 too). It was so bad I never bothered seeing #3 (I know, it can't be worse, but... what if it is?)

    Ziad - Clones mostly left the whole Jar-Jar Binks behind, which I hated and got into more action. But your right, the story was very weak and the acting and special effects were pretty bad. The actor who played Skywalker was terrible. The 3rd moive, Revenge of the Sith was just more of Clones all over again, I just thought they were both better than Phantom Menace. But overall, the newer movies were all a big disappointment.:(

    Oh if you think that 2 and 3 were better (or less-bad ;)) because they featured less Jar-Jar, then I completely understand. The sheer annoyance of that... thing was just incredible. It's yet another one of these "what the hell were you thinking, Lucas?!" moments. I remember when I first saw the movie (in cinema) some people actually laughed when Jar-Jar first appears, probably thinking he was a regular comic relief sidekick. Half an hour later these same people were groaning. Me, I just hid my face in my hands and prayed for it to be over soon :lol:

    ION = In Other News.

    [​IMG] MAD Magazine had a pretty good suggestion for Star Wars Episode 2 back in '99. Unfortunately George Lucas didn't take the hint.

    (The picture is pretty big, so putting it in Spoiler tags.)
