Yeah yeah you grubby little cunt, never a truer word spoken though, the further he is away from it the better.

 

 

If I had $4bn burning a hole in my back pocket I'd probably spend it on keeping Star Wars away from George Lucas too.

They need to leave behind Vader, Luke, Leia, Han etc. and move on to another story. Or maybe set in the past, like the Old Republic video games. The story of Vader and co is well and truly over, time for some new material.

 

its a tough one, new characters could ruin it American Pie style (Until the re-union of course) but then obviously the original actors are all far too old now and re-casts would be completely and utterly wank

 

definately one that could go either way this, 3PO and R2 definately need to be kept alive though, and preferably Chewy too

Personally I'd sooner be shot of 3PO. R2 is okay since he can't talk so is unable to utter the absurd lines Lucas conjures up but the beeping bastard was pushing the envelope in terms of irritating viewers in the prequels, what with his newfound flying ability, squirting oil and doing some fucked up force lightening of his own.

So that now gives Disney Marvel,Lucas Film and the Muppets.

 

I can see some real shite cartoon and crossovers coming from this.

Time to face facts. The success of the first three was largely drive by the FX. Star Wars revolutionised cinema and FX. It was that spectacle which dragged people in. Without that the film would have been very average.

 

So it was FX which accounted for the success of Episodes 4,5 & 6.

 

By the time of episodes 1,2 & 3 those FX were far from special and hence devoid of the Emperors new clothes the films were shit.

 

No good can come of this

4 5 & 6 certainly changed cinema and set new incredibly high benchmarks for FX but they had a lot more about them than just that

 

Yeah, they were a REAL epic Adventure... with a compelling storyline, genuinely likable characters, and an easily definable good vs. evil struggle.

I wasn't that impressed with the special FX. The original movies were more groundbreaking and looked better than the silly, cartoony, Babylon-5 type environments in the prequels.

"Lucas said in a statement' date=' "It's now time for me to pass `Star Wars' on to a new generation of filmmakers."

This could be quality.[/quote']

 

Couldn't agree more. His creative juices dried up years ago but that hasn't stopped the cunt milking the Star Wars universe dry in the meantime. We might finally get something in the Star Wars universe that's great again.

Totally disagree. It was the story and characters; the sheer imagination of it all. The effects were incidental for me. When I think of Star Wars, I want to be Han Solo. I don't think about how cool the effects were.

add in a healthy dose of mythology as well

i was referring to the OT (456). They blew the world away with the fx. The prequels were good as far as fx goes but nothing that changed the world of cinema. Having said that ILM made almost every major advance for years after ep6

Luke Skywalker and Iron Man trying to save a kidnapped Miss Piggy couldn't be any worse than any of the prequals.

    • Bernardo Silva was racist towards Mendy and got a ban. I can't stand him and by all accouts him and Mendy were mates, but he still got a ban because it was racist even if he didn't really intend to disrespect Mendy.   Cavani will get a ban because if the FA don't give him one, it will completely undermine their efforts of inclusion.
    • He’s actually being charged for this by the racists in the FA.   Fuckin ridiculous.
    • Excellent work in a well thought out post that is sadly true.
    • The level of hatred they display about us is generally the level they are hurting inside, or worse. Twisted and tormented souls they are to be pitied more than anything else. Hate is a destructive thing and the emotional costs are very high, they have more feelings for our club than they do for their own.    I have some very good reasons to hate certain people in my life, as I am sure do many here. I don't waste my time doing that and instead prefer to share my emotions with people I care about and things I care about. Living in hate must be a sorry existence. I can't imagine that it doesn't spill over into their private lives in some way, so maybe my pity should be aimed more at those around them than actually at them.   Imagine being a very young blue who brings home a hand made Christmas card, suddenly the veins on their fathers head start to grow and the card is ripped to shreds in front of the youngster. The poor kid only went and coloured Santa in red! I have been in homes around xmas that don't have any red at all.   My nan worked as a cleaner at some posh people's house and each year they'd have a clear out of toys, when I was five she brought home a red tricycle which I imagine I got for xmas. Before my father fucked off for good, he hand painted the red tricycle from red to blue with gloss pant. I can only imagine the life I could have had with that bitter bastard around. We had very little but we didn't have abuse or hate. Something I am convinced we would have had if he hadn't fucked off.    So I can't get too angry at their vile comments, they just disgust me. I can't get too angry at their childish and sometimes depraved memes and banners, because what you are seeing is a form of mental illness or at the very least their way of coping with it.    What other fans would boast about new stadium plans, what other fans would be utterly convinced that a new stadium would mean world class players clambering to sign for them. What other fans would be convinced that a new stadium would mean instant titles, trophies and European success. Ask the many teams that have built new stadiums and now languish in the lower tiers how that went. And how the hell are we supposed to care about their new stadium. We have decades of amazing memories attached to Anfield, memories than most can only dream about. I've not met a red that doesn't want them to build their new stadium, although admittedly some of them believe it will bankrupt them, financially I mean as they're already morally bankrupt.    A club that exists for no other reason than to promote hate, they don't ever challenge for anything, they don't win anything and if it wasn't for our losses they would have absolutely nothing to celebrate. At this point I feel I have to point out that football is supposed to be an escape from the pressures of life, supposed to be an entertainment and something that brings joy to your life.    I have lost count of the times I have read people saying that some time in a lower league would be of great benefit to them. I bet that fans of Tranmere enjoy their football more than Everton fans, because while I am not suggesting everton are at the level of Tranmere, at least Tranmere fans are not deluded. Relegation might reset their expectations a little, but they'd probably find a reason to blame us or some football conspiracy when they eventually do get relegated.    Blues point to us for all of their failings, and yet it's their own fans and club they should be taking aim at. Every half decent signing gets 45 minutes to become world class before being booed. If they do manage to rise about the Goodison boos and actually play well, they are sold on for a profit. You have more chance of winning a trophy if you leave everton, as 83 players that have left in the last 25 years will attest to.    I must stress that this isn't all of them, every club has its fair share of wankers. One of my best friends is a blue and a nicer guy you won't ever meet. However for a fair proportion of them, being vile and disgraceful human beings is at least one thing they will beat us on every time.
