    Sorry for getting off-topic, but Penguin has always been my favorite Batman villain and I really felt that movie took the perfect actor for him and somehow managed to totally screw the character with the writing. Fin-hands, seriously???

    You must be this guy, then. ;)

    Sorry, I'm gonna have to completely disagree with you there. I love how the character was designed and depicted.

    I'll echo that. I love Batman Returns, mostly for Catwoman but the Penguin is great too. It's a bit Burton-y, but I think it works.

    True. I was in dial-up until 2003.

    3SA was a place for regular epic meltdowns, a few of which were mine.. More reason for avoiding spoilers this time.

    Only having visited the 3SA once during the final weeks leading up to the release of the film, I'm curious what kind of topics caused meltdowns at the time?

    Loved Burton's Penguin.

    You can find behind the scenes featurettes of the film on Youtube, and one of the things mentioned was that Burton initially was disinterested in doing a second Batman film but was won over when they told him that he could do a "Burton film" in the Batman universe and was pretty much given free reign to do whatever he wanted. Hence the completely different version of Penguin (and my favorite version of him).

    The fastest way* to set off the 3SA was to post a spoiler that one of regular insiders didn't have yet.


    *(Leaving aside all the usual crap like fake spoilers, baiting, flaming etc)

    I think I'll be staying with the "no spoilers" version of the Episode 7 forums once the split happens too.

    There were a ****load of fake spoilers in 3SA. And that's an understatement.

    I assumed the DarthFriday spoiler about Anakin killing Padme was fake, because the dude claimed to know somebody who was on the set, or know somebody who knew somebody who was on the set, or something. Then there were the lengthy posts about the Othello comparison and how this spoiler was the greatest thing that happened since 1977.

    Aaannnddd...there were those of us who thought that spoiler was the worst thing to happen since the rising popularity of "reality shows".

    And we had fights. Which was stupid but it happened.

    I seem to remember a few meltdowns over Grievous too, people complaining that he was created solely as a fanboy wet dream, and Lucas just wanted to see how many lightsabers he could give to one being.

    The speculation was the best. Padme is Boba Fett. Obi-Wan is a clone. Naboo is Dagobah.

    I stand by that. Though Krell's dual double-bladed sabers distracts away from Grievous. :p

    Woooooowwww I remember all that! Remember when everyone thought Kitster was Boba Fett? There were folks who swore by that rumor for years.

    And yeah, I had thought the Anakin-kills-Padme rumor was bogus too. And the rumor that Dooku died at the start of the film (which became increasingly obvious as we heard less and less about Christopher Lee's role...)

    How many bans got handed out over the blue-Yoda mess?:p
    @anakinfansince1983 Yeah, I miss those rumors... and Palpatine is a clone too. ;)


    And JW Titus, was awesome. FTTK.

    Yeah, 3SA was soo bad that spoilers spilled over into FanForce... and Macaffery (I think it was) was none too pleased. IIRC, it mostly had to with the relocation of fanclub threads, it was a zoo at times.lol

    @Dan_Grievous_Tikkes_Fan

    I watched some Youtube videos, found one about the Confederacy made by dangrievousreturns and I was like:This name sounds familiar... [face_thinking] Is that you?

    Lol, nevermind, I followed the link in your description box and found the S4 heroes video. Really funny and very well done! I'm still laughing about the Obi-Wan part. Especially about the ending... [face_rofl]

    Yes, that is me... I made all those videos! :cool:

    The Season Four Megamix was almost not gonna happen, but season Five inspired me to make it.. I am happy you enjoyed Obi-Wan's part the most. ;)

    I just headbanged my hair to the point of complete dryness immediately following a shower for the first time in a really, really, really long time. (And that's no easy feat, my hair goes past my chest.)

    This has to be one of the greatest albums of all time:
