    CGI looks pretty real to me because I have imagination

    I'm going to guess that you realize that the first half of that statement and the last half don't exactly mix.

    Didn't he say that he was bored out of his arse doing the Prequels - against green screens etc.?

    Well, an appearance by Mace in 7 (and/or 8 and/or 9) would create a nice golden thread in the films.

    Or like the other three losers he brought to fight Palps. At least he won in a fight.

    He said all kinds of stuff. But he definitely enjoyed fighting with the lightsaber. You can see it every time he talks about it.

    Well, I suppose if I drink enough margaritas have an imagination, Bugs Bunny looks like a real rabbit.

    I don't have a problem with CGI but the argument that people who dislike it "just aren't using their imaginations" isn't a very strong one.

    I only looked at the title, but why the hell would he need to be one-armed if he's a ghost? Obi-Wan's ghost didn't have a lightsaber wound.

    I'd be OK with a Ghostie Windu cameo, but no "Oh, we forgot, he survived," a la Maul.

    His portrayal in the ROTS novelization was more compassionate towards Anakin than his portrayal in the films.

    Regardless, I don't think he deserved Anakin's betrayal.

    Except when Anakin told him Palpatine was a Sith. Also, in AOTC it is Mace who reminds the audience of Anakin's destiny.

    I love the way Scott minimised his use of it in PROMETHEUS as much as possible in favour of 'practical effects'.

    And I'm sure he enjoyed the salary.

    BUt, really, you're right. He looks like a big, goofy kid when he talks about saber fighting. And watch the ROTS behind-the-scenes stuff. He and Hayden were *into* it.

    *Threadmerge*
    Given all the myriad threads about “(Actor) Wants to Be in Ep. VII,” Mod consensus is that it’s more effective for to collect all those discussions into one place.
