Ewan McGregor was shite as Kenobi in the prequels.

 

I don't think anyone comes out of those prequels looking good. The dialogue they were given to work with was complete tripe.

Yeah I'm willing to forgive and forget if the material is good.

True. However, I’m struggling to think of a Ewan McGregor film that I’ve liked.

You can type this shit, you just can't say it.

He's good in Fargo.

I haven’t seen it. I love the film. I’ve had the first series on DVD for about five years, but haven’t got round to watching it.

I think Mcgregor is one of those actors who gets by on minimal talent. Honestly can't think of any performance that has wowed me. Even in Trainspotting (along with the equally overrated Johnny Lee Miller) he was second fiddle to Robert Carlyle, Ewen Bremner and Kevin Mckidd, who were all outstanding. I'm not saying he was bad, he's never bad, just nothing spectacular. Having been a massive fan of the book first i guess he was almost the obvious choice for Renton, and possibly why Robert Carlyle was so impressive was because he was nothing like how i pictured the character from the book. 

 

I think i watched the first two episodes of the last Fargo series and got irritated by his perm and gave up

Watched Shallow Grave years ago but can barely remember anything about it.

Trainspotting was fucking brilliant, and anyone who says otherwise is just trolling

Nah. I’m not a fan of the books or the films. I understand why Trainspotting is rated as highly as it is, but it’s not my cup of tea.

 

Just looked McGregor up on IMBD, to remind myself of the films he has made. Of the ones I’ve seen, I enjoyed Moulin Rouge, Christopher Robin and Doctor Sleep. A television series rather than a film, but Lipstick on Your Collar was great.

That's fair enough Tone, you haven't said it's a bad film, just not your sort of thing.

I don't mind McGregor at all, as others have said it was hard for any actors to impress in the prequels.  I thought McGregor was more than competent in Trainspotting, Life Less Ordinary (a very under-rated film) and Christopher Robin.  At least he's got *some* range unlike Martin Freeman, who plays the same character in EVERYTHING he's done.

 

As a side note, apart from the two returning actors, I haven't heard of anyone in that cast for Kenobi.

Very good in The Ghost (Writer) opposite Pierce Brosnan.

 

I liked him as Obi-Wan, I think he did the best he could with terrible scripts.

The scene where he tracks down Eli Wallach made me gasp, it was genuinely upsetting.

 

I couldn't believe just how frail and ill Wallach looked, he looked like a ghost! One of my favourite ever actors, his performance as Tuco in TGTB&TU was a complete tour de force.

Intrigued as to what part Friend is going play in this. 

Given that he's British he's nailed on to be an Imperial officer.

    • It was the gimp, I think. 
    • They’re really milking this deal. 
    • I know there’s no time for two club cunts on here but Sporting just need 4 points to clinch the Premeira. Three years ago they were known as the worst run club in world football, when their president paid supporters to attack players at the training ground. Just goes to show anything is possible and you are never as far away as you think. All done on a shoestring budget, with a rookie manager and a bunch of punk kids. Big Seb Coates finally came good.
    • The irony is that almost every other club would kill to be in the position that City and Chelsea are in.
      Everton would be top of that list, yet proudly spout about how they “called out” the breakaway six and spoke for every other club when they called for sanctions against them. The purpose of those sanctions were to allow themselves to be bumped into a position where they could “qualify” for a European place that they hadn’t actually earned as much as anything else and to claim differently is basically a lie.
      West Ham, Brighton and Crystal Palace, with rent-a-quote chairman Steve Parrish, again pontificating about how these teams should be brought to book, yet wanting to null and void last season to protect themselves against possible relegation whilst saying it was morally wrong to play on given lives were being lost. They refuse to see that in applauding City and Chelsea for breaking away, and back into the Premier League, all that is guaranteeing is they strengthen those clubs with Oligarchs or Oil States as owners to continue dominating every competition they are in, effectively taking the competitiveness away from those very same competitions!
      The ESL wasn’t handled very well in its timing or proposed implementation, but the general idea that it would possibly limit the massive money teams and allow others to challenge them was a sound one, but the blinkers were on from the time the announcement was made and the “little 14”, as opposed to the “big 6”, basically decided to hold onto what they had rather than what they might have had. It won’t go away though and they must know that, even if the current voting regulations in the Premier League give them the whip hand, and effectively a veto, for anything the top teams might want to bring in. A quick look at who has won the major prizes in European competition and domestic leagues over the past few seasons will show them why the current system needs changes to be made. They’re all hypocrites though, and will bury their collective heads in the sand while the really big boys dry bum them.
