  1. Hector mentioned to me something someone said about Shmi's death that I totally agree with. Anakin and Shmi should have been escaping from the sand people, with Anakin fighting them off out of the camp. Along the way, a sand person should have killed Shmi. This could have been a much needed action scene in the film (as opposed to the horrible conveyor belt sequence, which was a late addition to the movie), and would have been a much more satisfying death for Shmi. Very few people seem to like her dying just as Anakin gets there. Neil
  2. Heyyyyyyyyy, you stole that bit!!!! Neil - defending intellectual property
  3. Without marhsmallows!! Neil
  4. ******SPOILERS****** That's right, no suspense. Are we worried when Anakin is sneaking around the Tusken camp? Do we care when all the Jedi are surrounded by Dooku's battle droids, almost to the brink of surrender? No! And why? Because the film is so poorly written and made, we don't care about the characters. Another case in point. There is no time to care that Anakin just had his arm cut off. It happens so fast, it doesn't register, unlike Luke having his hand cut off, where there was dramatic music, and the editing lingered long enough on it that the audience could soak in what just
  5. Yeah, Insurrection is pretty bad too, but at least its not as boring as Attack of the Clones. Neil

    Whoa!

    It's a shame I can only delete my posts. Neil
  7. Joe, we agree on a lot of everythings, so I'm not going to let this little spat get in the way of our friendship. Neil
  8. Spider-Man did $114 million in 3 days as opposed to Attack of the Clones which did that in 4 days. Spider-Man set another record this weekend, as it had the best third week ever of any movie, dis-placing Titanic. It will also be the fastest movie to make $300 million, beating the record set by The Phantom Menace. Neil
  9. Pity. Spider-Man is actually the better film. Neil
  10. Why I hated Episode II. Flat dialogueTerrible Acting Poor Editing Count Dooku's "old person scooter" No Suspense Boring Hacked up Music Score Sonic the JediNeil
  11. I'm going to go with a "No" vote. Everytime I hear the music now, I'll be reminded of the movie. Neil
  12. No contest. Harry Potter all the way. Neil - who hopes Williams can score Chamber of Secrets
  13. That only takes me back to the main bulletin board page. Thank god! Neil
  14. For shame, not having a laser disc player. I've had one now for at least 11 years, and I love the format. I can watch legit versions of The Star Wars Trilogy and The Indiana Jones Trilogy as well as the original versions of Superman - The Movie and Star Trek - The Motion Picture. Neil
  15. Here is an absolutely hysterical clip from Friday nights Late Night with Conan O'Brien. It involves Triumph the Insult Comic Dog interviewing fans wating in line for Attack of the Clones. When I first saw this Friday night, I had tears running down my face. I hope you enjoy it. Neil
  16. The "Private Message" function is also working, and I recieved an e-mail advising me of that, too. Neil - who was really close to 1500 posts at the other board
  17. I'm very happy with my legit laser discs. I have 2 copies of the orignal films each on LD. Neil
  18. Of course it's a love theme. Even "Luke & Leia" is a love theme, though of a different sort. Neil
