    This is creepy, Go Mer has made a point that doesn't get my blood pressure up. Interesting analogy there GMT (is there a thumbs up icon?)

    Nathan, I already said that AOTC is OK. Why bash us? :p

    P.S. Gomer, I like "Revenge of the Sith" very much. I would say that's the odds on favorite title at this point.

    I take it back. "Attack of the Clones" has grown on me in one day. In fact, I think it is my favourite title. A bit like "Robocop" or "Starship Troopers". It's cheesy but good.

    I guess it's not as bad as I first thought. I was pretty taken back by the title when I heard it, but now I've had a chance to let it sink in. If it really is about the attack of the clones, I will be happy. So I guess the title isn't that bad. Just kind of campy. Which can be good.

    Attack of the Clones is a seriously KICK-ASS title. Many hard consonants and it implies ACTION.

    I LOVE the title of episode II.

    It seems very much like Star Wars to me.

    STAR WARS

    EPISODE II

    ATTACK OF THE CLONES



    Oh yeah!!

    God help us all!
    Bashers, Gushers. Posting as one, posting in unity and harmony and no sarcasm!
    People, I give you star wars fans as they should be.
    Don't lock this thread!
    This should be archived if anything!
    I never thought I'd see the day!

    When I saw the title in AotC/EpIII forum, my first thought was, 'This was a lame fan boy attempt!'
    Then I went to the official site. It was confirmed.
    I laughed myself silly and thought George lost it. All the bashing of TPM made him go insane!
    It was like that for a while. Then I thought of the other titles, especially ESB. Then it started growing on me. This title is pure Star Wars at it's best! A nice slightly cheesy, Saturday popcorn flick.
    When I told all of my friends who weren't neccessarily fans, but enjoyed the movies reguardless I got the following:

    'Oh my GOD! Tell me you're joking!'
    'Is that the working title? The REAL one!? UGH!'
    'That's AWFUL!'
    'Oh no. . .'
    'LOL!!!'
    'I think it's kinda neat :)'
    'So it DOES deal with the Clone Wars?'

    All of them eventually warmed up to the title. Maybe Lucas hasn't lost all of us yet :)

    LOL good point. Think about it: "Star Wars"?

    TJ,
    [hl=yellow]This title is NOT as straightforward as it sounds.[/hl] And I wouldn't extend your 'Phantom Menace shows up early, Empire Strikes Back early' thing to this, you might be setting yourself up for a letdown.

    This just in:

    Ewan McGregor calls Attack Of The Clones a "terrible, terrible title".

    I never thought I'd say this, but Ewan needs to shut the ****** up.

    It's funny how it's perfectly alright for the fans to complain about the title for Episode II, but when sometime who's actually acting in it complains, everyone gets offended. Oh, the humanity...or Vogonity, if you're a Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy fan.

    Attack of the Clones....hmmm....it has a certain ring to it.

    I know its confirmed, and I'll get used to it, but I cant help remembering that GL had told everybody EpVI would be Revenge of the Jedi, and it became Return of the Jedi.

    I just heard about the title 10 minutes ago and am still in the deep dislike stage. Hey, even as a basher, I liked the named "The Phantom Menace." It's layered. It has lots of cool possibilities. Attack of the Clones? You've got to be kidding me.

    xuxu, You should have stopped with Romancing the Clone. That was frickin' hilarious.

    Yeah, those were rather good, xuxuspetals. There's aren't as funny, but going with the same theme, you could have:-

    There's Something About Cloning Mary
    The Last Temptation of Cloning Christ

    Oh dear...if those sucked anymore they'd be mistaken for ice lollies.

    "George if you're reading please put down that bong and seek some help."

    More like "George, take the friggin' bong out of mothballs and start reading Carlos Castaneda again!" See, this is what happens to a parent's frontal lobe after years of being forced to watch Barney with their kids. "This is your brain,"===>(ESB) "This is your brain on children's TV." ===>(TPM) "ANY QUESTIONS???"

    ;)

    I knew there was a reason I liked you Patrick. We may not agree on the outcome, but I think we agree on the method.

    xuxuspetals, lol!! :D

    Just like That_Wascally_Droid said, bashers and gushers are coming together to celebrate news of the next SW film, starting with the title.

    Guys, let's not forget what we all really wanted in TPM but never really got: a war!! GL is giving us exactly what we asked for and he's shoving it in our face with the title!!

    Thank God for GL!! Three cheers for GL!!

    Hip-hip-hooray!!

    Hip-hip-hooray!!

    Hip-hip-hooray!!


    The dark times are almost over, guys, the trailer for Ep. II is just around the corner.

    The trailer for EII is going to ROCK. I hope it features a lot of Natalie, though, I hope it focuses on the love story and not the Obi-Wan plot. I think GL should just call EII 'Padme is really hot in this movie, come watch it', and make the trailer all about her.
