    <center><b><font size='4' color='purple'>Welcome to the Prequel Trilogy?s Basher Sanctuary!</font>

    Abandon all hope, ye who enter here!</b></center>

    OK, so what is a New and Improved Basher Sanctuary? Primarily, this is a place for people who are disappointed in the directions the movies have taken with this new generation of films (Prequel Trilogy and Special Editions) and who want a safe place to share this opinions. But you don?t have to hate the PT for this thread to be for you. If you have any disappointment in the PT, even if you like the PT as a whole, this is the thread for you. It?s a place where it?s OK to say you don?t like [x] thing about the PT and fear no retribution. Think you?re alone in your opinion? You?re probably not. Post and find out!

    This is also a place for said like-minded people to compare opinions about other movies. So if you?ve wanted to start a thread something along the lines of ?Matrix vs. The PT? but keep having it locked, you can have that conversation here.

    So what are the rules? They are many, grab a notepad ;)
    <ol>1) Obey the TOS at all times. </ol>
    <ol>2) No spoilers!!!! Sorry. Yes, we can talk E3 known facts and speculation, but no more.</ol>
    <ol>3) Discuss the films, not the fans. We will ban violators of this one, oh yes!</ol>
    <ol>4) PT fans are welcome, but gushing is not allowed. We have two PT DFs here in SWC, I?d encourage you to visit one of them if you wish to gush. They?re good threads, too! :) Also, as long as people are obeying the TOS, they have the right to criticize the PT/SE?s in this thread. You are allowed to come in here and discuss their opinions with them, but not criticize their opinions or their right to have them in this thread. It?s ?Sanctuary?, please respect that.</ol>
    <ol>5) In this thread, LOTR is considered a better series than the PT, and PJ is ?the man? not Yoda. LOL!! Just joking! (or am I?)</ol>
    <ol>6) Yes, you can talk about non-SW stuff, but keep the conversations about movies, TVs and other media. Real life issues are for YJCC or the Senate and complaints about the JC go to PMs or Comms.</ol>
    <ol>7) This is a PT Basher Sanctuary. If you want to bash the OE (that?s Original Edition or Original Trilogy for those who don?t know what the OE stands for), Go-Mer has a thread here for OE bashing. </ol>
    <ol>8) You have to read what Stryphe posts, and respond favorably to it. Offenders of this rule will be subject to bannings after three strikes. Reading Strilo?s posts are optional.</ol>

    // assumes the Gusher-in-Residence chair again

    I still hate Boss Nass and am upset that not even the great Brian Blessed could save him.

    Shouldn't this Sanctuary be called "Attack of the Bashers" though? :(




    Rick McCallum loves you!

    [face_laugh]

    Stryphe, I really like how you've defined the parameters of the Sanctuary: ("this is a place for people who are disappointed in the directions the movies have taken with this new generation of films (Prequel Trilogy and Special Editions)"

    That's precisely how the Sanctuary has been evolving anyway. Now it's official.

    Well done, Stryphe! Now let's get to some serious bashing... [face_devil]

    Be our guest. You can say anything Basher-like here. Being the Basher's Sanctuary and all. Bash Natalie's acting abilities too if you want.

    And here I was ready to bash the Clone Wars cartoon and the EU.

    And what kind of title is "The New and Improved Basher's Sanctuary (with only 3 carbs!)"? What an awful awful title :p

    Yeah, I think a lot of people will be happy with this move. Unfortunatly I'm a little bashed out at the moment. Just wanted to say "Hello,"

    Good-bye

    Only 3 carbs, huh? That's good, I can post here more often without exceeding my daily limit of 36 carbs! :D

    Good show, Stryphe!

    <Puts squeeky things under Adam's chair>

    EDIT And let me be the first to say "I knew it!" I knew we were moved down the page to get used to the idea of being in here!!

    Hi everybody. I was quite stressed when I saw that ugly line over the previous Sanctuary, and mighty pleased to see that I can now expand the scope of my bashing.

    TPM = sucks!
    AOTC = sucks!
    EP3 = will suck!

    Special Editions = not so special!!

    Clone Wars cartoons = probably not so good!

    Holiday Special = well, it's better than AOTC

    Two responses to two posts from the previous thread:

    Yes, Stryphe, TTT and ROTK have grown on me!

    Welcome to the Circle of the Enlightened, RahrKast!

    Ban this thread forever...hmmmff...that's a good indication of being in denial.

    You can't deny the overwhelming, sincere basherdom that exists, thus it is impossible to deny that the PT is flawed, thus this thread continues to live, in glory of the Original Trilogy, and in spite of the Prequels.

    By the way, there should be a paragraph in that opening post that says "...and of course, feel free to gush about 'A Song of Ice and Fire' by George Martin." :p

    Attack of the Bashers

    But, just like the clones, we bashers don't actually attack; we are defending the dignity and sincerity of the original SW trilogy -- virtues that have been macerated by the PT.

    Attacking, oops, I mean defending...

    Ooww... I am so confused!! :(

    *sighs* You know, to see this most recent spate of changes to our SWC here....and I'm referring to one addition in particular here, I'm sure we all know precisely which one it is, unfortunately....but, yes, in any case - it all really does leave me shaking my head in total befuddlement and, I will say, some disappointment as well....to have such a thing - I guess muddying the waters here, you know? *searching for the right words* I mean, really....when those who so evidently loath some *four-fifths* of The Saga are basically catered to, in such a fashion, on what's supposed to be a Star Wars *fan* site.... *shrugs, a bit downcast* Well, like I said....some confoundment, head-shaking and exasperated eye-rolling does tend to result in such circumstances, as likely as not....aaahhh, only on this site, indeed....evidently. *snerk*

    Found that somewhere in this very SWC forum! You know where. Can't be too hard to find. *snerk*

    LOL, JW00.

    For a moment there I thought they'd shut the Sanctuary down! :eek:

    Although it does feel a bit like we're bumping elbows in this forum more so than TPM. :p

    Does that upcoming merger thing mean all the threads in TPM/AOTC will be erased at that point? ?[face_plain]
