    Conframation??? :confused:

    JJ!!! I know, it's about time! I'm so excited. The Duel of the Fates video was so awesome (especially b/c I wouldn't watch any of the trailers in fear of spoilers).

    I was somewhat underwhelmed by the video. Did they think "Across the Stars" itself was not good enough, so they had to make a bunch of poor edits to intersperse action music with it? Oh well.

    Nothing too new as far as footage in the video, wasn't even the full "Across the Stars", more of a mismash of different tracks.

    Painful to sit through TRL to see it.

    I agree with Jeff 42. I remember being more blown away by the Duel of the Fates video, and not because the DotF music is more "exciting".

    Ha! How can you say that about someone who spent $65.72 on SW action figures today and found all the figures to be worth the money? I am more than happy now and I am anxiously awaiting this movie. My dissapointment in the music video is a very trivial thing.

    ok sorry for that...it was uncalled for.

    I've been taking finals up the wazoo this week so far, and that's why i'm a little cranky and stressed. I sincerely apologize...

    I think I'd be stressed if I were taking them up the wazoo. Generally I just write them.

    Don't get me wrongo, I'm extremely excited about the movie. The music video is probably the only AotC-related thing I've seen recently that I haven't really liked.

    Oh, and also, I absolutely love "Across the Stars," just not this video.

    I'm a big U2 fan, and many online fans really, REALLY didn't like the videos for Elevation or Stuck in a Moment. But what they had to be reminded - and I think it applies here - is that music videos are not for people who are already in the fanbase, they're for reaching out and pulling more people in.

    Being orchestrated music, the video won't get much airplay anyway. And as beautiful as Across the Stars is, it won't make a huge impact on the non-fans in the MTV crowd. I think that's the reason for the "mega-mix" of different tracks: the biggest impact possible on the assumption that it won't get played very often.

    Beyond that, I think we're reaping the results of having four trailers (and giving each of them the Full Zapruder). Lucas has already shown us a LOT between the four trailers, and he probably wants to hold the rest of the footage back for May 16th.

    i wasnt too impressed, but bubba the genious is right: the vid wasnt meant too much for fans, just the people who arent fans yet.

    but the song overall was pretty good. i like the other version, or the other love theme or whatever the heck theyre callin it these days.
